thanks for responding so quickly.

after i have changed these values when i try and run cert.cab i get a message reading:

installation failed. the program or setting cannot be installed because it is not digitally signed with a trusted certificate.

Hi,

have done a hard reset and reg editor now does its job. i think if you've been messing around with unlocking techniques a hard reset before trying this specifi technique is essential. also, unlplug any cables to hard reset.

however:

cert.cab now installs perfectlty, but when i try nd run spvservices.exe i get a message saying that it is not a valid windows ce application.

please somebody save me from the brink on a mental breakdown...

thanks

I'm having trouble with this :)

Got my PAYG C550 yesterday but it wouldn't get a signal - phoned up Orange today who said that the blacklist hadn't been removed so they did that for me and I could get it to work with the Orange sim.

Did the unlock procedure OK, my o2 sim no longer gives the "invalid sim" message, nor asks me for an unlock code. However, it acts like it is still blacklisted, never acquiring a signal and showing "Denied, searching" on the screen like it first did with the Orange sim.

I phoned Orange again to double-check the IMEI and they confirmed that the phone wasn't blacklisted. I guess my next call will be to O2 to get them to check it - but Orange said that there is just one national blacklist register now?! This is really annoying!

Problem solved - tried a Vodafone sim this morning and it worked fine, so phoned O2 who removed their blacklist and it's now working fine :)

I used the registry tweak and then the program and it unlocked it. i put in my virgin mobile sim card and it all loads fine. but when i try to make a call it beeps 3 times and then hangs up. also when i call it from my landline it said "calls are not currently being connected to this number" 2 times

is this because i did something wrong unlocking it or is it a problem with virgin mobile?

Sounds to me like the sim card is inactive. Is it an old sim card? Or is it a new pay as you go in which case it probably needs activating?

i found out the problem, it was a phone i had bought off ebay and it had been reported stolen and barred from all networks, i got my money back luckily enough though.

Heya... I'd just like to confirm that our free C500 SIM unlock tool works perfectly on the C550 (thanks nedge2k for the testing) :)

To decert (application unlock) the C550, simply change these keys using the attached registry editor (it's the freeware PHM editor signed by HTC):

HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies\00001001 = 1 (RAPI)

HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies\00001005 = 40 (Cert)

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Simple way to unlock your application lock on ur c500 cool stuff many thanks Mr

Only other way would be to bluetooth/ir it across

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I successfully app unlocked with regedit and loaded cert,cab plus TyphoonNB.dll and executed cert. But when I try to run SPVServices, after AGREE and Login I get a message "Illegal ReadZone attempt. RAPI Init Failed"

Tried severaltimes spread out over about 12 hours. Have I missed something?

It was on the computer, not sure if Activ Sync was connected - should it be?

Does SPV services look to the internet first or the phone? It seems to have failed on whatever its first action was.

Make sure your connected to the internet, deactivate your firewall, and make sure active sync is connected.

Was having problems with the decert last night (as I didn't know how to use the regedit app properly) and didn't have time to look around...

Gonna do the unlock tonight now ;)

Thanks again for the guide
