Unlocked a Samsung Galxy Ace through ADB

Just finished un-locking a Samsung Galaxy Ace - S5830, that was locked on the 3 network - UK. We don't get to see lots of locked phones in Egypt, and the last time I unlocked a phone, it was through a paid service.

I didn't do much, rooted the phone and then followed the procedure in this xda thread to unlock it via ADB. It worked like a charm. Now my English friend can enjoy using his phone freely with an Egyptian SIM card.

Note: The method for temporary rooting the phone, mentioned in the thread above, didn't work with me, so I rooted the phone permanently.
