Info 2 Unlock Tethering for Cricket (and possibly AT&T) - How I Did It

Hello everyone,

I found a way to unlock tethering on my Nokia Lumia 520. This may work for other models and possibly for AT&T as well. Basically, I followed this guide:

Thread Here

I flashed the 059S340 RM-915 VAR APAC AU CV firmware, and after setup, just happened to try tethering and BAM, it's working perfectly. It was blocked before while using Cricket's original firmware. As far as I can tell there's no disadvantage to flashing this firmware, as you can change your region and language to US during setup, and Windows Phone 8.1 Preview is working great as well.

Happy tethering, I hope this helps someone else out there!

If anyone tries this on AT&T GoPhone or Postpaid, and it works, let us know!

Cool! Thanks for sharing.

Any chance you could follow the steps here so this could be made possible for people who don't have Nokia phones and/or don't want to re-flash their firmware? It would be even better if I could also get the info from the original ROM (to see what changed), but if it works now when it didn't before, that's very good to know.

Thanks again.

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.

Absolutely! I'm downloading the Windows Phone SDK to do a Dev Unlock right now, and I'll attach the results to your thread over there!

I'm having a little trouble getting my phone to dev unlock, not sure why but i'm beginning to think it might be the new firmware... I'd also like to add that I discovered Double Tap to Wake is working on this firmware, but not in the original from Cricket... strange...
