    Ask questions before you get started if you don't understand the process...

    One more question, when i get back to 4.3, is there any way that I can unlock my phone? ODIN wont let me downgrade, I had to learn the hard way, but can the phone be unlocked for gsm use while on 4.3

    When you upgraded to 4.3, you lost the ability to unlock. Forever. At least according to the folks at XDA developers.
