[Q] [ADVICE NEEDED] Developing a Free method to Network Unlock GT-I8150
A quick thanks to those reading/interested and I apologize in advance if this belongs in the development section. I don't have permission to post their yet (perhaps with good reason!). After much searching, I've come to the conclusion there is, as yet, no free method of network unlocking the Galaxy Wonder GT-I8150.
I want to find a method to do this, test it, and then automate the process through a shell script and/or batch file. If it doesn't cost too much, I'll even try and make an app for it. I have two reasons for doing this: I own this model of phone (surprise!) and more importantly, I want to expand my portfolio of little computer projects because I want a job in IT, and I want it now.
So this thread will serve as a knowledge base and brainstorming place. Please -anyone with ideas about how to go about this - let me know!
Here's what I'm trying at the moment: based on a similar method used to unlock the HTC Sensation (and some other models), I'm going through the mmcblk virtual partitions after copying them to a .txt file (filetype is binary, .txt is just so my girl's Mac opens them with a text editor). Using a grep command with a regular expression I'm pulling every single 8 character long string of only digits and exporting the result to another txt file.
I then search the mmcblkXpXX file for these 8 long strings one at a time, trying to read through what I can of the binary file for giveaways like "isim_auth_key" or what not.
I started yesterday so I'm only up to mmcblk0p06.
If you have a network unlocked version of this phone, I might end up needing certain files to compare, but I won't ask unless I think I'm onto something.
Finally, if anyone has found an NV_data.bin, bml5 file (or equivalent) for this model, tell me what it's called! Or where I need to extract it from.
Thanks in advance,
