Hi,

A question: I have installed superboot to give me root, so that I can run Ti Backup to save all my programs and data before trying this unlock.

I still have the stock Orange ROM on, and stock recovery, so I was going to start at step 5.



Can I still do this if I have installed superboot?

Thanks,

Is there any chance that someone can make this possible through linux? As I am having the same problems as when I wanted to root the phone, where it says 'waiting for device' and nothing happens no matter what i try. My computer seems adamant not to want to do anything through windows...

It doesn't matter if you have installed superboot or not. The only important thing is that you must have stock recovery prior to unlock. So if you've stll got stock recovery you can skip step 4, otherwise just follow every step.

Although you can flash stock recovery back in Linux, you will have to do the unlock part in Windows. Please go to my topic on the driver problems of 'waiting for device'.

I have tried this and it still doesn't work, now it doesn't even goto the green android, all it says is waiting for device. and I cannot flash to stock recovery in linux because there are no file for linux i.e. install-recovery-linux.sh etc.

Thanks for the guide; I bought the Monte Carlo only because it could now be unlocked so thanks everyone for working on the unlock.
I had one worrying moment:

On Step 6 FTM would only come up if the battery was put back in the phone first; otherwise the phone would just vibrate and seem to reboot every 5 sec or so; I think I also got an intermittent green man but this cycle would go on for ever.
My sequence was: Put battery in phone, hold down - Vol, insert USB cable, FTM appeared after a few sec.
Not sure why I had to do it that way but it worked for me.
There is also the question of should the phone be shut down normally before this step or just remove battery and USB?
I think I tried it a few ways.

Maybe also step 18 should say to run "install-recovery-windows.bat" from the Post-Unlock folder as "run the bat file again" made me concerned I'd missed a step as we are not running the same copy of the bat file again; the last one was in the Preparation folder. It is probably the same file but to a newbie it could be confusing.

Not complaining by any means, just wanted to pass on my thoughts, the guide was actually a lot easier to follow than I expected.

Thanks guys.

bought my omc today but seem to be going round in circles now with the unlock get through to the final bit but it just says ''''system error xcsp_eclibdll is missing from your computer'''

any ideas guy's your help would be much appreciated :)

ok sorted now ....when you download the preparation folders and unlock folders make sure you unzip them into a folder and and use them from there instead of directly from the unzipper if that makes sense ....it works now any way :D

now to get rid of the orange gumph :)

@syeventhedemon - Read the ENTIRE thread as there are some points that have been clarified any issues found the solutions have been posted. I have unlocked two of these phones now and providing that you follow all the points in the first post exactly, once you have read the thread, then you should have no problems in unlocking yours.

Thank you for the advice. I have now unlocked.

I was surprised I had to root again afterwards to restore my backup, but not a major issue.
