Thats not even a ZTE Skate youve had unlocked by O2...its a dell streak which you can have unlocked on any street corner for a fiver...

Seeing as Orange have dropped their OMC price to £119 I think its a fair enough trade off for waiting 3 months for the unlock code..unlocked skates go for £180 on ebay...

Yes the thought crossed my mind.
Orange have learnt from modaco.No doubt that orange have watched the blade progress on this site very carefully,and based on there observations,made their plans with ZTE.
Little does orange know that the modaco devs will crack the skate,may take some time,but it will happen.

By the way tillaz,your bluemonte rom is awsome,good job man.Cant wait for your next update with notification controls :D


lol.Just F5 your bluemonte thread,and what do you know,the update is ready :D :D :D

it's possible some shops can unlock over jtag by now (voiding warranty in process) think they would charge at least 25GBP though.

So you know for certain that JTAG cannot be done ?

or desoldering the flash chips - cloning unlocked skate onto it and reseting the imei then resoldering them won't work.

Most unlocking places are a total waste of time (I would never on principle pay someone to click a button on a program).

but not all. (I know one that is pretty decent but its really expensive).

There is no way someone could offer a proper service cheap because the kit you need costs so much.

Someone with access to university Electronic Engineering kit should be able to try something similar.

(Surface mount is not too bad with the right kit).

Do you hear the hardware click during the Skate booting?
The locks are located in separate bios chip simmilar to password protected pc motherboard bios chips.
Each Skate has serial number with bios password known only by Zte and Orange.
You cannot overide this until you install new bios chip wich is long and expensive process.

I don't think you know anything about how this works.

ZTE has stated that they have a rom they can install without needing the code.

Nothing I have read about qfuses is remotely similar to how a bios works.

Its not a particularly hard to replace a chip if you have the right equipment to do it.

Or provide some proper information (Its nothing like a bios the locks are completely independent from the boot process).
