I was talking about unlocking the simlock ie network lock. Just to confirm some stuff to anyone else who was curious. T-mobile sim definitely works :) Also the guy who sold me the phone has rung orange up and they said they would send him an unlock code in 7-30 days. Is this beyond the point of no return? Or has anyone got to this point only to have orange email them to say they will not unlock it (i thought i read someone describing that situation...)

Can't we just flash something on the PROM ? With JTAG ? (I don't really know, I am engineer but this is not my field :D)

In case of Android handsets, the bootloader of the device can be unlocked to flash a new CID number(11111111, which indicates an unlocked device) and hence the SIM Lock is effectively removed.

Ok; And the bootload is developed by the manufacturer right ? Can't we try some method used on a Android device used on a similar device build by the same constructor (and hope that the bootloader have the same source code or a part at least ?)
And using a probe doesn't require a unlocked bootloader, no ?

Do somebody knows were I can we find methods used to unlock some devices (for personal knowledge) ?

Excuse me to ask stupid questions but I find this subject interesting and I don't know where I can learn all that...

So you tried to backup your bootloader with adb ? and modify it ?
I can understand that the bootloader can check it's integrity (with a checksum in a cartridge or something like that); the CID word is a part of the bootloader ?

What did you do exactly to brick your phone ? And how did you restore it ?

Got an e-mail from Orange today, and now I have an unlocked phone, it will now accept any sim card, took about a week for the code (and obviously the fee £20) but it worked.

Not sure whether this will help in any way to getting round the sim lock without having to resort to paying Orange a fee, but you never know, now I just need to sort out the 3 sim card I have and use the pac code to port my number to 3.

Awesome! Why don't you want imei codes? Don't you think each unlock code is related to the imei?

I would like to work out the codes, but I would need your used codes and imei.
There has to be a pattern but to solve it you would have to use the used code and imei.

So if you want to you can pm me both

Thanks
