Hi guys,

I've just implemented an Excalibur USPL which allows you to flash any Excalibur ROM updates, i.e. you can flash any *official* ROM even if your phone's model and vendor ID doesn't match. It's confirmed that you can also flash cooked ROMs

This SPL is based on original Excalibur 1.11 SPL but includes 3 patches:

1) g_cKeyCardSecurityLevel = 0 (set 32)
2) Does not check Model & Vendor ID
3) Does not check signature*

(*) code must be formally signed i.e. contain properly-formatted signatures on the right places, however no checking is performed against them.

This means you can flash ANY ROM to your Excalibur after running USPL on it, no need to pay for CID unlock anymore!

The USPL will *not* help you to SIM unlock your device. You still have to pay for that.

The USPL runs in RAM and is *not* flashed to your device, so there is no risk there. Once it runs you can run any official Excalibur ROM update utility.

The USPL does *not* permanently CID unlock your phone, like the CID unlocker from imei-check or so.
After you flashed a ROM your phone is again CID locked. Each time you wonna flash a ROM with a different model and/or vendor ID (different from your phone) or a cooked ROM, you must run the USPL again and then flash the ROM.

It's beta and untested and the risk is entirely yours !! Don't blame me if you brick your phone

The main reason for implementing this USPL is to support the poor guys who bricked their wifi. See this thread.
But those who want to flash a device where wifi works don't need to be afraid that wifi fails after the upgrade.

EDIT:
You can now also flash the USPL allowing you to flash any unsigned (cooked ROM or ROM module, e.g. radio or OS) or signed ROM with any model/vendor ID. The USPL substitutes your SPL until you perform a full ROM update. Consider it as an extra insurance in case something goes wrong with flashing cooked ROMs or any other ROM update !
Instructions:
1. Run the USPL (Excalibur USPL- CID BYPASS.zip)
2. Run the ROMUpdateUtility.exe (Excalibur-USPL-RUU.zip)

Have fun,
JockyW

Phil, to avoid misunderstandings: after running the USPL your device is not permanently CID unlocked !! It is only unlocked when you run it. After you flash a ROM it is CID locked as before. So each time you wonna flash a ROM you must run USPL first.

agreed. thanks a lot for your hard work, i appreciate it.

i'll integrate your CID Bypass in my Windows Mobile 6 guide. i hope it's ok with you - that way people won't have to pay 40 $.

the only beef i have with you is the fact that i wish you had done this 2-3 weeks earlier - that way i wouldn't have had to dish out 40 $ for my cid unlock. haha jokes :P

You're truly a hero based on the desperate need for a free cid bypass.

Better late then never - Thanks once again for your contribution to the forum..

Well, I haven't got yet my SPV E600 (S620 from Orange), since it's on the mail, but I'd like to thank you for this great tool.

Keep the good work

Guys,

It's still far too early to celebrate a triumph...

The only one in this thread who tested was phlipse and I'm not so sure if he actually flashed a ROM. And in the other thread there are two guys who also report results which are not correct.

At least it is unlikely that you can damage your device with running the USPL.
