I'm very pleased about the fact that these X-sim and turboSIM devices are providing a solution for a lot of people, but I fear that people may be taking their "eye off the ball", so to speak.

Although these are great devices, I just want to encourage everyone involved in the unlocking project not to give up! :) There *will* be a solution, we just need to work extra hard to make sure we don't become reliant on third-party adaptors, when all it takes is some dedication and outright determination - IT CAN BE DONE! WE NEED TO DO THIS!

I have faith in this community, you're all brilliant people working hard for little or no reward, except the gratitude of others. If I had the knowledge to crack this alone, believe me, I'd do it in a hearbeat, write the PHP code and give you all the calculator! As I am new to algorithms, byte swapping & all that foreign stuff, I just want to tell you all that you're super people, and this is a superb handset.

IT CAN BE DONE! DON'T LET OBFUSCATION AND DISAPPOINTMENT DETER YOU!

God bless you all! :)

Hello

I'm maybe the only one who is waiting of proper unlock ;) . Turbo sim is no go for me.

But I can't help, because I don't understand programming, cracking, hacking ....things.

Kind regards.

Because you have to cut off your SIM!

OK, back to work.

What do we need to unlock this baby? Does anyone know? Is it possibe to access, overwrite nand memory?

What software is needed? Is it realy so difficult to change nand memory?

Do you maybe know if in the background "smart heads" are already working on unlock?

Why was blade so quickly unlocked (no nand memory)?

Do we need any particular forum member? Maybe we can all PM him or her and ask for help.

Kind regards.

I asked for the unlock code from orange over a month ago....they sent me my unlock code in the post yesterday....:D...if you're British residents and have been orange costumers for a long time you should get yours as well by politely asking as i did....

I've only had my OMC for 2 months so the 3 month rule is bendable...

otherwise there is the x-sim option for a fiver....

Hi dude. I'm a general hardcore geek & terminal hacker... so what do I do, to dump me some NAND? I know which way is in, and which way is out, so no chance of me flashing anything; just want to dump and hexedit/scan for strings.

Thanks

PS: I'm a pro with "dd" so don't be afraid of showing me some of that dd if=/this/that stuff; it's all candy to me, baby!

[_EDIT_]

Got it, don't worry:

DO NOT TRY THIS UNLESS YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH *NIX TERMINAL COMMANDS, OR ARE WILLING TO BRICK YOUR LOVELY OMC!

Using ./adb shell:


dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd0 of=/sdcard/mtd0.dmp bs=4096


...


dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd8 of=/sdcard/mtd8.dmp bs=4096


So that's mtd0-mtd8

Just dumped all (I think - 1-8) NAND partitions and did:



strings *mtd* --print-file-name | grep netlock


and got:


mtd5.dmp: xdr_nv_send_nv_ue_netlock_type

mtd5.dmp: xdr_nv_recv_nv_ue_netlock_type

Curious... the nv suggests "non-volatile"...

Ideas?
