All right this might not be "on the right track" thing but here goes
It has been more than six months since Idea cellular (India) released
the customized firmware version 11.126.16.00.356 for the Huawei E1732 (E173du-1) 7.2 Mbps USB modem,till this date there's no unlocking solution for the device due to this customization.

On doing some research on the subject I came across the fact that the device is not asking for the unlock code when a locked SIM/UIM is inserted in it because its maximum unlock retries left has already been set to 0.
I tried various tools but none of them was able to reset the counter.

I was able to extract the NVR using QPST and the EFS using Revskills (though I'm not sure I was able to extract the EFS completely) and perso.txt from the efs using EFS Explorer.

One more thing there's no firmware upgrade or downgrade available anywhere
to solve this problem.The only firmware available is the locked one its a 7zip based installer so the stuff inside it can be extracted using software like universal extractor.

I am attaching the stuff I have extracted from the modem and the locked Firmware itself.Any kind of help or guidance is welcomed.

Unhappy A last try.
Huawei guys have eaten a lot of money from Idea cellular and set the default lock counter to 0 attempts left out of 10 if somehow this could be changed the device can be unlocked.Please I also tried to send AT command using Diag port but it returned with CME error 3 Help.
