Default ChevronWP7 Unlocker & Cert download - *here* + video tutorial

As people may know, Chevron have removed their unlocker download for WP7 so I thought I'd archive it and make it available for everyone here still:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=JY0ZFVKD


EDIT: Thanks to Cendaryn we also have the required security certificate - the easiest way (thanks to Talys) to install the cert and unlock your WP7 is to do as follows:

1. Unzip file, and attach chevronwp7.cer (see below for file) to an e-mail to yourself
2. Open email in WP7
3. Tap attachment once, turns it into a shield, tap it again, goes to install certificate screen with white letters on black screen
4. Click install at the bottom

5. Make sure registry is modified:

Code:
 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsPhone\ProxyPorts]“DeviceReg”=dword:000069C5
I think the WP7 developer tools from MS does this, but you can add it in manually (it's a 32bit DWORD)

6. Plug in phone and leave Zune running
7. Run chevronwp7.exe, click both checkboxes
8. Click unlock

Excellent video tutorial here thanks to Jaxbot

[Edit 8th Dec 2010]

Worried that Microsoft has relocked your phone? They haven't, look here

[Edit 20th January 2011]

Want to keep your unlocked HTC from re-locking every sync? See here

Hope this helps someone.

Nice but they removed the cert as well - so until we don't have that the unlocker itself is pretty useless

Yep, I didn't check http://chevronwp7.com/cert beforehand

By the way, the easiest way to install the .cer is to email it to yourself, then tap the attachment. WP7 comes up with a screen that confirms that you want to install the cert
