  1. Set Button 3 (Camera) to <None>.
  2. After run the JumpSPL.exe and get the file list, press Camera first; then press Power. This is little difficult, if you pressed Power too long; you device may be turn off.
  3. Tab the Pharos_JumpSPL.nb file, it must be tabbed while Camera & Power button are pressed.
After above, you should get grey background screen.
You can flash the HardSPL at this point.

If the flash success, you will get SPL 1.11Mobiz instead of original SPL 1.11.0001. This means the device is already unlocked.

It does work for me and I already flash Tom's WM6.1 ROM.


tested by me go good

If you wanted to permanently unlock your device, the HardSPL was also available.

JumpSPL & HardSPL Instructions:
  1. Transfer the extracted files (JumpSPL.exe & Pharos_JumpSPL.nb) to your device and execute.
  2. Use 0x10000000 as Jump Address.
  3. After getting the Open File Dialog, press [Camera] & [Power] like you are going to enter Boot Loader, then tab on the Pharos_JumpSPL.nb file (Pharos_JumpSPL.nb).

    You will get the grey background screen, you can flash any ROM to your device at this point.

    In some case, you may need to unplug and then plug the USB cable again.
  4. If you wanted to permanently unlock your device, why not, simply flash it with the HardSPL once and you are done.

    After HardSPL, you will notice your SPL version change when boot;

    From SPL 1.11.0001
    To SPL 1.11Mobiz

  • To make it easier, I recommend changing Button 3 (Camera) to <None> or the Camera may disturb you.

Thank you to esteve & pof for the JumpSPL.
Thank you to Mr. Ru Chonburi who create the Pharos_JumpSPL.nb.

I am just the tester and author of this article, all work was done by Mr. Ru Chonburi of PDA Mobiz (

After the Pharos_JumpSPL.nb file was tabbed DONT RELEASE THE CAMERA AND POWER BOTTON , KEEP PRESSING 2 SECONDS AFTER THE haros_JumpSPL.nb file was tabbed and then RELEASE .

5.1 Quick double click on ROMUpdateUtility from the HARD SPL directory.

thanks it works!!!

Which rom can I install on my pharos? I use the phone as a second unit and it would be nice if I would bring it "back to life"

Thanks in advance for any reply
