    Hi everybody.
    Can somebody tell me if you can flash the EE locked lumia 920 with the EU global firmware? Will this unlock the phone?
    Thanks

    because the lock is in the BIOS level, not in the Firmware. You can flash any product code (locked or unlocked) and the phone will always check its lock checkup in the BIOS first when booting.
