EDIT awarner title change as only Orange UK MPX should need decerting
as other networks phones are decerted as standard.
PLEASE READ ALPHAFLUX'S POST IN PAGE 7 OF THIS THREAD FOR UPDATES
NOTE if you have a newer MPX200 then you can only decert your phone at the Orange developers site.
I got tired of waiting for a response from the Orange engineering/technical team; and with the lack of any real dates being posted for an OTA unlock from Orange, I decided to take matters into my own hands! :twisted: It has taken a few days and a number of hard resets (I don’t care to count how many!), but I finally cracked it! I hold in my hand a fully application unlocked (de-certified) MPx200, running all manner of uncertified applications.
Anybody interested? Thought you might be! Just read on... :wink:
The MPx200 security is by default set lower than that of the SPV, which is what makes this possible. It may work on the SPV series as well, but from experience during testing, the SPV security policy prevents it. It’s worth noting though that I don’t own an SPV, so can’t really confirm this. Give it a go, it’s simple to do and what have you got to loose?!?! (I would be especially interested to know if anyone has any success with this method on the e100/e200).
I promised an easy unlock and that’s what you’ll get … There is no need for a hard reset, in fact no need to even reboot your phone! And not only that, but it will survive a soft reset and will work for any MPx200. Almost feels criminal! :twisted:
I know what you are thinking, stop blabbing and get to the point already! I am almost there, honestly! Just a tiny little bit more first…
Now you'll just have to trust me on this one, and I might be reading too much into it, but the implications of this method are massive and more than a little disturbing to say the least! :shock: So much so, I was in 2 minds about putting this out. When you see how its done, if you care, you’ll understand why. I for one will certainly be checking the installation scripts of unsigned apps in the future!
So, for the good of the nation and the sanity of MPx200 owners (maybe newer SPVs too)… Just download the attached "unlock" cabinet file (you’ll need to be registered and logged into see the files), copy it to your phone and install. Now install an uncertified application and see it in all its glory. That’s all there is to it! And to be complete I have also attached a re-lock cabinet, just in case anyone wants it! How that for service!
Just be warned, don’t play with the settings! Changes to the policy values will lock your phone down harder that it is now and prevents this method from working again without a hard reset. I know should know; I managed to lock my phone down harder than fort knox. I almost cried. :cry: Don’t say I didn’t warn you! For those of you out there that don’t heed my advice, a hard reset can be performed on the MPx200 by holding down the blue action and power buttons at the same time. :wink:
Take care, and enjoy the MPx200 to its full potential!
Special thanks go to all those people out there who did the original work on the SPV. Without which, this would not have been possible.
Alphaflux, over and out.
