Thumbs up Worked like a dream!

Hi!

I just wanted to say thank you very much for this very useful guide. I successfully flashed my Orange Branded Tattoo using this guide. It now no longer contains Orange's spam ware and I now have access to Flickr, youtube, GoogleTalk and Gmail apps!

Fantastic work putting this together - thank you for your efforts.

P.S... I didn't bother formatting my SD card - so I still have all my pics etc on there. The only things missing are my text messages! Great work! Thank you

Olleh

Hey guys the WWE images seem to be offline, can anyone re-upload?
In the other thread I am getting a 404 when clicking the EXEs (i am logged in).

Any help is appreciated

Hi all,

I got everything to work after more research, thanks for this amazing guide
I have tried a few custom ROMs etc. which all work fine.


However, it seems that Simlock is still not removed.

I have done a search and looked around a lot of threads and I just cannot find any other option apart from i-SIM or unlock codes. Is that truly all that can be done to unlock the thing from Orange properly?

BTW: If I try the Simlock option in HBoot, I get two red errors flashing up very quickly, followed by a few green and purple messages like posted in this thread before once I hit SimLock (image attached).

Anything guys? Getting desperate here.
I bought an I-Sim 2008, hoping that will solve the problem, but it isn't exactly an elegant solution!

While I am a real fan of this "Let's not reply"-game, I would really like to know a definitive answer to unlocking the HTC Tattoo via flashing. It seems no-one actually knows whether it can be done or not?

Any of my research just brings up results indicating it is both possible and impossible. So I would like to know which one it is please.

I realise this question might have been asked a million times, but using the search function etc. does not help me for the reasons stated above.

Well dude, that wouldn't have happened if you have chosen the "All Tattoo Questions" Thread sticky :P
As to your question: It is possible to flash an unbranded HTC ROM to your Orange locked phone (via goldcard)...maybe then the SIM lock is broken, but I can recall that SIM lock cannot be removed just like this...just try to flash an unbranded ROM and look if you can use other SIM cards, otherwise you have to buy an unlock code...

Sorry for the bad news

Nah, tried that already, I managed to get an unbranded rom onto there and also a few different froyo ones etc.

This SIMlock seems to be rock solid.

Thanks very much for the answer, I am perfectly fine with bad news, it was getting no news at all that bothered me

Edit: The I-SIM 2008 works. Quite impressive!
