There are already some solutions for app unlocking your HTC Typhoon, but most of them are for the Orange SPV C500 only, which, I think, is why I couldn't get my phone's IMEI number registered on the Orange server.
Well, here's a straight forward way of app unlocking your HTC Typhoon - and it should work for all HTC Typhoon's:
WARNING: THE FOLLOWING METHOD INVOLVES EDITING THE REGISTRY VALUES - USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK! I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE DONE TO YOUR PHONE.
I have attached the Smartphone registry editior. You unzip the regeditSTG.zip file and copy the unzipped file to your phone using ActiveSync, then run the registry editor on your phone.
Then change the following values to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001001 = 1
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001005 = 40
And now your phone is app unlocked!
Now simply use the SPV-Developers Services Client to sim unlock your phone (you might want to reinstall the cert.cab file on the phone just in case) - the program shouldn't crash now and soon you will get a message saying Sim Unlock successful or something like that. (my phone is now back on good old O2) Good luck!
PS: I had to pay a few pounds on ebay to find out about this alternative app unlocking method (I have spent hours on the Internet searching for it but no solution was found!), but the point is someone is using the freely distributed SPV-Developers Services Client to make money. How annoying. Should we do something about it?
