wbloore, before you run the app attached above please set your registry to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001001 = 1 Application locking setting

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001005 = 40 Application locking setting


Pagemakers,

Regedit and Resco Registry will not let me change those values. I've tried loads of times. I've tried different versions of Regedit, including the HTC signed version. Still no luck. I've read that the C600 wouldn't allow application unlocking after installing the Push Email update. Is this the same sort of thing?

wbloore try using this version to change the registry. You must copy it across to your phone as a zip file and then open nd run it once on your phone.

I had tried that file earlier without any success, but gave it another try by re-downloading. Still no luck. I get an error message "Unable to perform this operation" when trying to save the new registry values.

With Resco Registry, I get a message "Modification of certain values can cause serious damage to your system. Do you wish to modify the value anyway?". I select Yes, but the setting is still the old value (2 and 16 respectively instead of 1 and 40).

I've just noticed an icon in the Accessories folder called "HTC Unlock". When I click it, it says "Press 'Unlock' to begin!". I click Unlock, and it opens Regedit and goes to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001001 and tries to change the value to 1 automatically, but then Regedit comes up with an error "Unable to perform this operation". It then tries it with 00001005, with the same error.

HTC Unlock then re-appears and says "Done:)". But it hasn't succeeded in changing the registry values or unlocking the device.

If you run the attached app on your phone it will tell you if your phone is locked or not.

I guess regedit is not built-in to the phone. What happens if you run HTC unlock without regedit being installed?

I got my mteor today as well, and am having the same problem- there is no registry editor which I have been able to find which will actually change the values. I suspect the problem lies elsewhere. I also do not have the "HTC unlock" icon in accessories, so am stuck.

Otherwise it's a nice phone- a couple of bugs which need ironing out.

So, we need some help on unlocking this beastie. Any other ideas?

I emailed HTC Europe at 8pm this evening, so hopefully I should get a reply Friday.

Hmm, no way of editing posts. OK, I have spoken to HTC- they are saying that microsoft has locked down this build (sounds fishy to me!) and currently there is no way to app unlock. They said they're working on a new ROM, but I pointed out that for new purchasers, not much consolation- nice shiny new phone which we can't install our favourite apps on. They have no idea when new ROM will be released.

So, hopefully some clever person here will find a workaround?

There is no operator ROM included either! I hope the imate CAB file will work.

Odd - That app is not on my phone!

welcome home Pagemakers :)


Cheers I'm shattered but like a kid in a candy shop.

I'll write a full SP5/MTeoR comparison over the weekend.

My initial impressions are:

1) It's very good looking - Makes the SP5 look hugh and old!
2) Keypad is not as good as it looks
3) It is fast! - Faster than the SP5
4) Got a "1" at the top of the screen (Maybe it means line 1) - Just looking how to get rid of it.
5) MicroSD cards are.....tiny. Anout 10 times smaller then an SD card!

Nice on, thanks!

I'm hoping there are some negatives to put me off wanting this :)

I couldn'tt beleive how small the micro SD card was either!! and now they have a 2GB one too you'd wonder how the hell they do it ;)

enjoy the new toy!!

Nope, it doesn't. At least not until someone figures a way of app unlocking!

Another bug- once GPRS is set up, powering off then back on kills the connection for me (phone says "your internet settings are not properly configured etc..."). I have to delete the settings and then put them back in again for some reason, and then it works again.

HTC are looking into this for me- I'm just waiting on an answer

Hmmm, you're right.

Not a good start :)

I've received the same reply today from HTC:

You are unable to application unlock your handset. The version of ROM your handset uses has been locked down entirely by Microsoft. We have been attempting to remedy the situation through the various registry edits, however none of these have worked.

There will be no solution until we are able to acquire an unlocked ROM from Microsoft which will then be released as a ROM update.


Looks like my phone is going to be sold on Ebay if it can't be unlocked soon.
