Thank you! This helped me unlock other bands as well.
Awesome! Could you share what bands you enabled on your phone?
Is this possible for a Snapdragon 625 device Lenovo P2? There are 2 variants of this phone China and Global. Maybe I can also unlock the Global bands in my China variant?
I think this instruction doesn’t work with Lenovo P2. This is only for Nexus 5X.
Why they are doing this(disabling this band)? I feel like they are just evils 🙁
