You have written a little confusing 1st post, because you mention both task manager and android sytem info.
In Task Manager the value to check is "Total System Memory"
In Android System Info the value to check is "RAM Max:"


Thanks, Updated

OK, the topic should be modified so that unlock _might_ be needed after applying.
Then again, wo has not unlocked their phone and used it "legally", it will also not remove the lock if it was locked and vice-versa, so there should be no problem with this behaviour of the update.

No worries ;)

Was it yourself that got this up and running?

I am thinking of another thread to follow up this new Single ZIP method of wiping a Device so it is Completely flashed in one single step.
It may be the future ;)

No, fonix232 got hold of the update image from a T-Mobile service point (or from somewhere else, i don't know exactly). I have just mirrored the update image on my account too, so fonix232's server doesn't get hammered too much with downloads. I have luckily an Orange SF so it did not concern my device, but i am actively monitoring this topic too, so i can help my hungarian friends who have also bought T-Mobile Blades here in Hungary ;)

Also i sometimes translated the hungarian talk on the topic to english for those who asked, but main credit definitely goes to fonix232 for getting ahold of the update.

There is a button to "Reset Attempts (and Lock)" in that app. It does exactly what you need.

Wo cool fix, but I don't hope / think that there are more ZTE Blade's out there with only 256 MB RAM aviable.

BTW, j.f.y.i , the swiss ZTE's are all having 512 MB RAM unlocked.
Even the newest one, glossy black and whitout orange logo.

Applying this update WILL re-lock your device and you will have to re-generate / enter the unlock code (based on the devices IMEI)


Could you tell me if applying this patch will harm an Orange San Francisco with 512 MB? I bought mine in Switzerland and unlocked it to use it with a German network, but if I ever have to return it I would try to get the simlock back with this mod, so my warranty is restored.
