Up Guide: How to Unlock the Vodafone Huawei E220 Modem - 10-25-2008, 12:11 AM

OK guys this for All the PPL here that got a Broadband package with a Locked Huawei E220 HSPDA modem, for those who don't know what Modem is locked means, only SIMS from a specific network work on the modem, (Lets say u decide to ditch one service provider and go with another thats not possible with a locked Modem now does it lmfao). ok lets get to business.

Warning : Im not responsible for any consiqences you might face after you follow this guide.

This stuff will be needed to make this work

E220 firmware update
A Hex Editor like XVI32
QMAT - QC Mobile Analysis Tool
E220 Simlock Unlocking tool

1. Run the Firmware update wizard wait till it detects the modem and then cancel the Wizard.

2. now Run the QMAT - QC Mobile Analysis Tool, Choose Use Com/Usb port Menu Item from the Hardware Forensics Menu. ull see a window like this. select COMx - HUAWEI Connect - 3G PC UI Interface (COMx) option, then click the send CMD button, you will see a bunch of text appear below in the output box and it will say "Successfully send command" if u dont get that message u messed up so do all of above again :p.



3. Now!!!, select read EFS option from the drop down list, its allready selected on this screenshot, then hit the Lets go button, give the filename efs.bin, itll take a few minutes to read the complete EFS to the file (its about 32MB in size).

4. After the dump is completed, fire up the Hex editor, open the efs.bin file u just created, and search for this Hex Value 53 64 2c 00, Right next to it you will find the Unlock code for the Modem. this is my modems dump....



See i have highlited the Hex chain and the unlock code its very easy to find, unlock code is a 8 digit number for this device.

5. Now fire up the E220 Simlock Unlocker tool, Enter the unlock code u just discovered, Violah ur done. u get ur self a fully unlocked Modem tha u can use with any subscriber ...

Enjoy guys...

Hey guys..

this works and Tested 100%, one thing I have seen so many occasions. when something like this has been posted, ppl tend to use it for commercial purposes.. please don't do that guys.. it's a insult to the person who really paid their efforts to this. If you can do it for free don't do it for money.

thnx fallenzeraphine for posting this here and big hats off to the person who really did this hack.. (I don't knw specifically who, coz I have seen so many blog posts belongs to different blogers. )

I think you've downloaded the latest version, try v3.99

http://revskills.de/downloads/archive/qmat_399.rar

try that one, I think 10mins is more than enough to dump the Firmware.. better try v3.99 I did that with it.

then the subject is little hard, what you can do is, if you have a camera phone, get a pic, and upload, so I can sniff arround and see whether we can dig in to the firmware. well the actual fact is every modem is designed in a way that you can Flash it's ROM, most device manufacturers give out their own toolz to do that and update the firmware, but just have to find the way to dump the ROM into our file, then the hard work begins to study the hex and find the code in there, just like we did on E220 , So we need to get to know the girl if we want her.. need some identity. you knw..

Important : Dude since this is a different gadget, post it in a new thread, it will be easy to find.. and ppl who can help will contribute to the post, hope the admin will put this post in the right direction thanx for da good job.
