As promised a while ago I've learnt how to make an Android app! This is pretty basic, but I think it covers the "security" worries that people have with giving out their IMEI to random web sites for free codes [odd that people feel happy when they are also giving out their money/eBay/address/bank details...!]. (Note: this is probably the most secure way of doing this that exists, since Android apps have to ask for permission to do stuff like use the internet or your SD storage, and this app only reads your phone state in order to get its IMEI -- it doesn't send or store any data anywhere, or access anything else.)

The app shows your IMEI and generates the NCK code, but it doesn't attempt to apply it, so you have to note it down and follow the normal routine of inserting a different SIM into a ROM that cares about these things. See here for more details, and a video from Paul! (Maybe the next version will be able to automate this a bit, but don't hold your breath.)

The "Reset Attempts (and Lock)" button will reset the phone's internal idea of how many unlock attempts you have back to the initial 5. It will also put it back in the state where it will prompt for the NCK code when you use a different provider's SIM. This may be useful for putting the phone back to (seemingly) the factory state, or for the reported occasions where interactions with Orange [unblocking a phone?] have reset their end of the network lock [?not sure about this?].

HAPPY CHRISTMAS ONE AND ALL!!

My phone is already unlocked, but I can still say "Thank You" for an extraordinarily generous Christmas Present!

Have a very good Christmas yourself!

And, BTW, well done!

To be a successful dev you need to look past physical thankyous and imagine smiling faces all around

Reminds me of the antisocial "Runescape" private server devs.. They are still frolicking around in the mud fighting over scraps while the more evolved "WoW" dev community have a thriving Civilisation V
My actual point is that the RS devs yell "OMG Leechers" and remove their code and download leaks just because no one says thankyou
