Ok, the Unlocker is released, sorry it's so big but there's nothing I can do about that I'm afraid, that's just the way it is.

Those of you who are already unlocked should complete step 1 regardless... step 2 and 3 are optional (but if you do 2, you MUST do 3)

it's a pretty simple 3-step process and it's all explained, remember to keep your Athena connected at all times until you have fully completed all the steps.

So anyway...

Click here to download!

Please note: you must have .net Framework 2.0 installed with the services packs, if you don't it then it probably won't run till you download it.

UPDATE: Thanks to apd, I isolated the problem and have fixed it, your device will now be hardreset in the process of unlocking unfortunately, but this fixes the blackscreen issue. please delete your unlocker and redownload.

SPECIAL INFO ABOUT STEP 2: When you run this step, first your device will be flashed; this is NOT the end of Step 2, you must then configure your device and set it up fully so you can access the menus etc (there will be a prompt to ask you to do this after the flash anyway). then you will be able to continue. please make sure to read ALL dialogs fully

Agent Bignose has created an excellent video here - Please note: after 18:19 of the video, you are done, you are free to disconnect the device and close everything down, the rest is just error logging

Please report your success or failure on this thread

X7501 now supported! FOOLPROOF NEW SSPL METHOD USED, MAKE SURE YOU USE VERSION 3.0!

Excellent work Olipro. Thank you.

This thread should be made a sticky as it will undoubtedly have the SIM/CID unlocker posted in the first post when it's ready.

C'mon friends...we're so close..now all we need is a couple of hundred more to Midget_1990 & we'll be getting us some home cooked goodies.

Please Donate to Midget via the Athena Project link in his signature...almost there.

Thumbs up THANK YOU!
I'd also like to say GREAT JOB!

Everyone needs to give you an extended thank you since you started working on this before the device arrived. Being that resourceful is a great thing.

Thanks Olipro for making this goal a reality and stuffing it to those that never believed. :)

Maybe next time we have a common goal, all those that doubted it was possible will join in ensuring quicker success.

That said, let's get donations going for Midget's device. We've already proven this system works. Let's repeat success and keep going.

Being an Athena owner puts you in a special category. And if we can afford such a great device, we can surely afford a little more money as a collective to buy a second device for the developers. I'm donating again and would like to thank those of you who have donated and those that donated more than once! We need to work together to ensure the rest of the goals are met.

More good news: I've managed to optimise the SPL not to query the radio at all when it checks CID, so if you manually issue task 32, it returns a "level = 0" instantly.

What's more, this SPL will block all other SPLs from flashing, so you can't remove the bootloader except manually with pdocwrite from windows mobile.

Tomorrow I'll get cracking on an unlocker, and maybe something to let you relock if there's demand for it .

Next stop? ROM Cooking.
