Wouldn't this work on any SPV to app unlock?

HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies\00001001 = 1 (RAPI)
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies\00001005 = 40 (Cert)

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)

I have just unlocked my C550 using this method but "Sprite Backup" still refuses to work because it says the phone is locked!!

Yup - and it works:)

@dnlucifer follow the instructions in the first post of this thread - I couldn't unlock via the site either but editing the registry worked a treat!

...although if you run the checklock.exe app it will still show your phone as locked.

It does get unlocked but not 100%. For example Sprite Backup will not correctly restore your phone if it has been unlocked using this method.

I'm in the USA and just received a c550 + I'm trying to unblock it, but I'm obviously missign something. I think I know the problem, but I'd like to confirm..

do I need a working orange sim card to unlock the phone?
do i need to be in the UK for the orangews. app unlock feature to work?

is there a site that I can pay to unlock my c550, (like i had to do last year with my c500) in case it doesnt work?


thanks

Unfortunately you would need an Orange sim to be able to use the free unlock method as without it you can't install the tool needed.

You can still use www.imei-check.com 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}>


I tried this on my C550 using regedit and it says "unable to perform this operation when I hit "done" to save the new values? ;)

Any ideas?

Just a quick thankyou to the people who developed this tool. I used it on my c550 with no problems at all. Can't believe people pay £20 for such a simple process.
One thing I would say is to go with the Orange certificate unlock thing as it's a lot safer than playing about with the registry if your not sure what your doing. May take a little bit longer to get the mobile number format matching etc but there's no risk.

Welcome to the forum.

First off florin_m's method was the only way to unlock a C500 and I paid £20 to get my original unlocked.

This process is only simple because zone-mr et al have put a lot of work into it and chosen to make it freely available. Had they not done so it wouldn't be simple. Much kudos to them.

Although I have had no problems using the orange OTA method with 2 C500s it just wouldn't work on my C550 so I used the reg hack - worked like a charm, far easier than faffing about with orange! ;)

Have fun with your C550 :)

App unlocking the C550 on the Orange developers site worked first time for me, all I needed to do was use Action Register first.

Don't forget if you are not in the UK or are not using an Orange SIM (in the UK) you need to application unlock using passthrough and not GPRS.

So using the regeditSTG will be the same of unlocking apps by the Orange Developers site?

Is possible to transfer the regeditSTG from a PocketPC via bluetooth to the C550?
