Is there a way to sim unlock my htc one v?
I've unlocked the bootloader, rooted the device, put it on s-off, installed CyanogenMod Android 4.1.2, kernel version 3.0.16-HELLBOY; i flashed the kernel and rom; i tried to upgrade the ruu but it returned me the error 131 which reffered to some incompatibility ruu, even tho it was the most appropiate one.
another thing i tried was to hack into the mmcblk0p6 and take the un_lock_code but the unlock.sh returned me this error:
u0_a39@android:/ # IMEI:
u0_a39@android:/ # UN_Lock_code:
u0_a39@android:/ # /system/unlock.sh[34]: + + : unexpected 'end of expression'

my radio is 3831.19.00.120. The network is locked on O2, UK. I've tried a lot of things, but nothing worked.

Can you help me guys?

Thanks in advance!

That depends on what fastboot commands your hboot supports. If you have an eng hboot you can remove simlock with fastboot. But I cannot remember the command off hand. Connect up to the pc in fastboot mode and issue the.command fastboot oem h and it will output all the options available. Post them here for us all to learn from please

I would use these 2 sets here. First make a nandroid backup, just incase
Then issue these fastboot commands one after another and copy the results.

Fastboot oem readcid
Fastboot oem readsimlocktype

All good? Now first we want to change your cid to super. So issue this command

Fastboot oem writecid 11111111

Fastboot reboot bootloader

Fastboot oem readcid

Your cid should now show up as 11111111, that's 8 1's

All good? Lastly we issue these commands.

Fastboot oem clearsimlocktype

Fastboot reboot

Now just check your simcard and all should be well you can now flash any ruu for any carrier without issue, but always check its compatible with your model type first!

Cloud Search Hmm, maybe yes maybe not
It passed the sim network locked screen, but now it says "no network available" and when im making a call, it says "mobile network unavailable" \
I REINSTALLED THE RUU i was trying to install it in the first place and it worked. so thanks for your help

PS: the new challenge is this error: mobile network unavailable because it is disconnected


************update***************
1.last night i put s-on on my phone...but
2.even on s-off i could not unlock the bootloader after installing the RUU_PRIMO_U_ICS_40A_HTC_Europe_2.22.401.1_Radio_20 .76.30.0835U_3831.19.00.120_release_273801_signed
3. no bootloader unlock->no root->no s-off->no simlock
4. the message header is ****Relocked**** and the error the i receive when i try to unlock the bootloader again is:

C:\Fastboot>fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin
sending 'unlocktoken' (0 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.640s]
writing 'unlocktoken'...
FAILED (remote: unlock token check failed)
finished. total time: 0.650s

***********fixed this one*************

Battery Low GSM problem/hardware problem
thanks heavy_metal_man for replies!

the config.dat file worked, partially i think, returning only one error: Open Cid file failed.
as i could see my phone does not react to find any mobile network available, even tho my phone is "reading" the simcard now. i can see contacts, messages, etc.
ps: i don't have the back cover. would that be the problem?

The back cover for these kinds of phones usually have "antenna boosting" pads. My htc sensation gets no signal without the back cover on.

For anyone else I would recommend trying the linked website solution from sieempi before fastboot commands
