I have finaly managed to unlock my phone with out resorting to patched rom files. What you need to do is:-

1) Contact Orange Developers and ask for a Security level changer.

2) Set your security level to low.

3) Download BreakSoft Mobile Registry Editor, see below.

4) Connect your phone to your computer and run the Registry Editor

5) Change the following keys

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies0001001
-> Change the value data to 1

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies0001005
-> Change the value data to 40

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies0001017
-> Change the value data to 144

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Security\Policies\Policies
-> Add new value "0000101b": Dword = 1

6) Unplug your phone and restart it.

You should now be fully application unlocked!

How? And how long do they take?

I sent mine one evening and got a reply the next morning.

You need to send an email to [email protected]
Giving them the following details

Your IMEI Number, type *#06# into your phone from the home screen
Your full name
The mobile number if the phone to be unlocked
Your contact numbers

I really dont know, i think it would be unlikly but you can try anyway. They can only say no, unfortunatly the software will only work with the phone with the correct IMEI number so you cant even try somebody else's.

Interesting - finally turned up this eve. Wouldn't work on Vista but did on SBS2003. BUT I had the option of High, Low or "Security Disabled" Taking the 3rd option and looking at teh registry I have the following (in red) settings:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001001
-> Change the value data to 1 1

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001005
-> Change the value data to 40 127

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies\00001017
-> Change the value data to 144 4294967295 - yup that is correct!

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Security\Policies\Policies
-> Add new value "0000101b": Dword = 1not present


I then used spv-developers tools to unlock my phone and am now using my T-Mob SIM no probs :)

Thanks for your help.

I ment to say that this one needs to be added, woops :)

Glad it worked out i havent gone as far as to try a different sim i was only going as far as the application unlock but i didnt fancy the idea of using patched roms.

That's what I thought!

I understood that but using the tool it does not get added. What does this key do? How can I check if my phone is fully unlocked?

Glad it worked out i havent gone as far as to try a different sim i was only going as far as the application unlock but i didnt fancy the idea of using patched roms.

the spv-developer tool just patches your existing ROM - no flashing involved and takes less than a minute once it's app unlocked.

Thamks again for your help.

edit: opening instead of saving worked :) ah well. Unlocked now, thanks a million!

Hi everyone. :)

On the C550/ C500, the 'Certificate Security disabling tool' from Orange provides 3 options (aka Security Levels):
1. Low Security
2. High Security
3. Security Disabled

Attached File  snap1574.jpg   17.85KB   81 downloads

From what I can recall, using 'Security Disabled' option is sufficient enough to have the phone run in so-called 'app-unlocked' state. In particular, the tool will:
1. Allow RAPI access (in effect, you can unlock the registry using SDA Security Unlocker)
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001001=dword:1

2. Allow unsigned Applications to run (you can run apps not signed with 'trusted' certificates)
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001006=dword:1

3. Allow unsigned CABS to install
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001005=dword:127


An 'unlocked' registry would have the following values
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001001=dword:1
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001005=dword:127
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001006=dword:1
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001007=dword:64
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001008=dword:1
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001009=dword:3
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :0000100b=dword:3024
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :0000100c=dword:2048
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :0000100d=dword:3072
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :0000100e=dword:64
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :0000100f=dword:3216
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001011=dword:1
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001013=dword:1
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001017=dword:4294967295
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001018=dword:22
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001019=dword:140
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :0000101a=dword:0
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :0000101b=dword:1
HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001021=dword:3072

HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001021=dword:3072

If you have the 'Orange tool'...you are lucky. You can just use 'Security Disabled' then to ensure you have a fully unlocked phone, run SDA Security Unlocker (allows access to protected Smartphone registry entries)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Init
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WDMDrivers
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Services
HKEY CLASSES_ROOT (device specific)



One might ask... why not just run the SDA Unlocker? Theoretically, a phone under 'High Security' state won't allow RAPI access, thus SDA tool won't be able to do its thing. If the latest C600 ROM allows the 'HTC-signed' PHM Registry Editor (RegSTG) to run on the device error-free, then change HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies :00001001=dword to 1 and use the SDA Tool on your PC while phone is docked. :D

I have managed to change the registry entries buit I still get the unasigned app warning and can't run. I am wondering if my security prog is faulty. When I installed it it was on disabled. If I change it to high or low security it says that it has enabled them but when I go back into the security prog it still says disabled.
Is this correct? I would have thought it should stay on whatever setting you put it on.
Is there a way of checking what your security level is.

Help please!

I have found out that when I turn my phone off and on again the registry entries return to the original settings?

Simon.

It sounds like when you sent the email to orange your EMEI number was wrong. Check the number again to see.

Thats the problem with the C600 with the latest ROM PHM Registry editor has been blacklisted so it wont work no matter what you do to the phone. The instructions i posted above should work on a C600 with the latest rom to fully application unlock the phone, or at least unlocked enough to run WM5Storage which i beleve is one of the best tests for weather a phone is propaly unlocked.

I didnt really want to use the SDA Unlocker app, i prefered to know what was being changed on my phone.

I did try just setting the security to disabled but it wouldnt let me run any unsigned apps.

I received a reply from Orange as below.

The application will always show 'security disabled' by default, regardless of the setting you have chosen.

Some programs may still not work if they attempt to access protected APIs but overall, most applications should install and run once you have selected 'security disabled'.

Regards,


Seems it only half disables security.
