But this i wonder:
You can unlock the carrier by going into service menu and enter a code you can buy online.
But how do i access the service menu with SFOSX? Android is the *#*#7378432#*#*
I guess you cannot do that in sailfish, you have to flash back to Android.

The main issue here is not messing up partition 51 or 52, I agree with you that those can be (more or less) restored easily. Another option here could be to reflash the whole image (or even restore Android with EMMA and then flashing SFOS again).
However, the biggest issue here are probably all those other partitions which contain crucial data for some hardware components. As I understood it when this topic was discussed in the second-to-last community meeting, some of those partitions can't be restored and you hard-brick the device when they are removed / damaged. So f***ing up the whole partition table (or at least making the slightest mistake during its restoration) could FUBAR (f*** up beyond all repair) your phone.

We also need to keep in mind that "moderately safe" or even "unlikely events" are not safe enough for Jolla to deploy an automated process with the possibility to completely brick the device.
