The Z.T.E crescent was released in November and some people had to wait 3 months for the unlock codes. I was just wondered if you guys had got your hands on them and if it was possible to crack. Hopefully making this phone as easy as the blade to unlock. Plus it might help to make this phone as popular as its predecessor as progress seems a little slow compared to the blade.Plus I love this phone and bricked my first one ,but have better knowledge now so might give it ago
In short...no lol
Attempts where made but it is a similar unlocking process to that of the skate. Nothing but dead ends as far as generating a working key.
The method that we do have however is relatively simple a bit of a hack maybe but it works

I understand its just my crescent been left in its box since being replaced.I was just hoping it would become easy to unlock and hack like the blade.Hoping it was going to carry on where the blade left as it has more potential with game play, Skype, camera etc.
I have to admit, I also thought that the SF2 would be the next step from the blade for lots of people. Turns out it wasn't enough of an upgrade for many. The unlock may look daunting but if you stick to the steps in the guide all should go well. Give it a go .
As for an easier unlock I don't think there will be one dude

One of my problems is I live in a rural part of the lake district in a house with no phone line never mind wifi so I am limited to what I can do. I have a computer but it runs 2g vodaphone edge via a dongle. So when at work I get 3g I spend most of my time playing and updating my phone ( sorry Boss). That is why I like the blade so much as you can do everything on the phone to root,unlock,instal clockwork e.t.c without the need for a P.C and very easily.Thanks to forums like this. I also like your rom fish and chips. Was just hoping the crescent would follow suite. I can always go round my mates house to unlock it but it seems not worth it just yet as your rom for both blade and crescent is there for both phones and apart from unbranded roms there seems little going for the crescent unless I am missing something. If so please let me know
The main benefits of the Crescent over the SF is the faster processor + better camera. Not enough for some perhaps but personally I don't think I'd want to leave mine in the box. True, unlocking & rooting was very easy on the SF but it's not too bad on the crescent as long as you do your homework first; make sure you've got clear instructions to hand & take your time. Of course it depends on how far away your mate lives. As frodo says, after you have clockwork recovery on you are in the same position as you are with the SF, but you have a better phone.
Btw frodo's link is to a TPT which will get clockwork on your phone but it won't unlock it. Good luck if/when you give it a go

Cheers for the clarification Titas. I had a nandroid backup to hand so I unlocked in one step. Can you share those to make an easy unlock?
That's an interesting idea. Was the nandroid from the same phone? I'm only guessing here but wouldn't the nandroid backup (& therefore the unlock) be specific to the device in which case I guess it wouldn't work on another phone?
