Steps:

1) Boot phone with VOL- Pressed
2) Flash XBmod rom, HARD reset using Vol- and Vol+ pressed while powering on
3) boot to get started
4) extract and place "WP7 Update Cab Sender" folder in c:\

14) when prompted answer yes to unlock SD card.
15) power off phone.
16) remove SD card
17) place in Windows PC
18) run CMD as Admin
19) run DiskPart
20) type list disk(this will show you your disks and the sizes so should be easy to see which number is your SD card)
21) type sel disk (then the number for you SDdisk) eg: sel disk 2
22) Being VERY sure you have the correct disk selected now type clean
23) now type cre part pri
24) if all went well remove sd card and reinsert and select it on Explorer
25) it will say its not formated and offer to format.
26) you now have full use of your SD card again

I hope this helps a few people.

Tried it myself. Although it's a hassle to put a new Custom Rom on the phone because you lose all your data this tutorial really works!
My only problem was that DiskPart cleaned my SD Card but didn't want to create a partition. I had to remove and reinsert the MicroSDHC card, clean it again and then it worked like a charm.
+1 for making this a sticky. Could be extremely useful to lots of users and the rom that is used is available on all HTC 1st gen devices.

if the custom rom supports cab sender then you can just send the dev_storageunlock to the device. it will persist even after hard reset but not flashing.

we just need rom buliders to start support cab sender and we will be good for everything. :0)

When you use an SD card in WP7 the card is no longer usable in any other phone/laptop/device etc.

The SD spec allows for the 'S' Secure password to be setup so only the device that knows the password, in this case the WP7 device you last Hard reset it in, can access the card.

You can remove this password using a nokia symbian device but not every one has access to one.

So the purpose of this tut is being able to use your own HD7 to remove that secure lock so the SD card can be read in any other phone/laptop/device etc. and format or in some cases dual boot to droid if you could be botherd to inflict your self with that rot.

Hope this helps.

Go check out the sticky on how to upgrade the memory in the HD7 to 32GB...
you can upgrade it, but you don't need this to upgrade it... This is so once a card is removed from the HD7 it can be used in other things. You can't take it out and modify it etc then put it back in...

Hi there.

Just want to say that my HD7 have Bootloaer(SPL-5.10) and the ROM in there does not support cabs install. But, I have HD2 and install HD2_Updatable_XBmod_Yuki_v2_native with the HD2, and follow the step in this thread in post one(1) and put in my 16GB from my HD7 and BINGO it UNLOCK the card.

Now I am using Android on the 16GB for my HD2 and the 32GB card for my HD7. I might end up switching it the other way round. Won't mind or worry cause now I can UNLOCK the card without any phone.

Thanks for your guide.

PEACE!!!
