My Tutorial For Unlocking The OMC

23 posts in this topic

Nice work. If I can make a point or two...

Between steps 5 and 6 - this might be a problem for some people as you do not mention anything about drivers. Some seem to get them installed via Windows Update and some don't. They need to see within device manager that they have the ADB Interface listed in it. along with the phone noted as a composite ADB interface.

Also they must be aware if they have a firewall installed to allow the software being used to access the phone.

Step 10 - for me the software did not identify a port and so it was not there to select. I had to right click on the globe icon in the system tray and launch the config settings which allowed me to add the port, which I took note from what the phone had been assigned within the device manager.

You advise people not to close the QPST software, I have seen it noted that the unlocking software will not work for some unless it is closed, as it seems to lock the port to itself and thus the unlocking software can't communicate with the phone. There is no problem with closing it as you just need to start it back up and then restore your qcn file. Maybe it does not happen that way in all circumstances but again of people are aware then they are not pulling their hair out unsure of what to do.

Well done again :)

Cheers, but it turns out it was a minor flashing issue with the QCN file, so I simply re-flashed and bada-bing, it worked :D.

I'm glad it worked out for you! Enjoy the added freedom!

Are there any plans in the pipeline to unlock the OMC, rooting and adding a custom with instructions only using the phone and without a pc?

Thanks Murf95

As much as I would love that to be possible, I have a feeling it will be very difficult. The process involves wiping data from the chipset and then restoring part of it.

What do i need to have done before i start this guide, e.g. rooting and installing other stuff

If there is stuff you should say at the start of the guide.

Take the battery out of your OMC and connect it to the computer. It should turn on, as soon as it does, immediately hold VOLUME DOWN until FTM comes up on the screen. The Start button should now allow you to click it.
