Have you tried to set the date on your phone and your PC to something before the 11/25/11? Because the certificate which you install on your phone expired that date, so you have to fake the date. Look one page earlier in this thread, where I explained the solution.

the reason is the expired chevron cert. I have test the chevron unlock with the certificat and before i set and reboot my pc + my phone to 01.11.2011

and it works very well! m00h thx for this solution! P.S. Ihave updated my guide in post 1

Ok,

followed your guide and most parts are working. Thanks

Just one thing, i dont really understand the last part of your guide, the backup section. I've realised that english isnt your first language and very much appreciate your efforts for a nice and simple guide for getting to Mango unlocked.

But can you please explain the last section to me so that i can complete the full procedure? i was unsure what to do when i read it.

thanks

I have samsung diagnosis DU 0628 and official chevron unlock but couldnt get the interop unlock under gprs(it simply wasnt there) but I updated the firmware with the sfr fr firmware, and the diagnosis version stayed the same 0628 and guess what the heathcliff interop option appeared under gprs setting.Am now enjoying custom colours under advanced config in settings.

I have a Samsung Omnia 7, running build 8107.79, firmware KK2 and interop-unlocked with WindowBreak.

I am able to deploy ProvXML to my phone, am able to start and, and am able to Execute the Internet sharing.

After rebooting my phone, no new settings appear in my Settings.

Any idea?

I have a Samsung Omnia 7 too, and got 8107.79 yesterday too..... but once 8107 installed, the internet sharing doesn't work.

I hard-reset my phone, but then I can't even install WindowBreak or ProvXML....

as far as i know the new firmware (which comes with 8107 if you update from zune) prevents ProvXML attempts (internet-sharing etc) and windowbreak-unlock. but it does not relock your device. if you were unlocked before, you are still unlocked.

so this means if you (yes, i made this error, too) hardreset your device, then update to 8107 over zune, phone gets locked (because of hardreset) and you loose the opportunity to unlock it.
i hope the windowbreak-team will find a way to make it work on this new firmware, too.

Hi,

I can't put "Internet Sharing" appearing in the system menu

Phone :
Mango 7.5
Version:7.10.8107.79
N Firmware: 2424.11.11.2

Diagnosis version: 0628

I have made everything sayed in all posts that xda has about IS and I cant put it to work

I have allready reinstall de diagnosis, use the DiagProvXML to insert the various xml files (and no errors occur)

use the root tools, samsung tools, etc.. Made everything that all other posts said to do.

What can be wrong?? Should I reinstall a unlocked rom? (Mine its unlocked, I think, because I can sideload apps and change reg values)

HELP

ok, maybe not the smartest thing...
i ran the tool mentioned earlier on my tango omnia, and apparantly it destroyed ICS...

any suggestions to undo it's trick?
(what would be the original regkeys, and how can i restore them?)

i currently do not have interop unlock, so root tools won't install...
so, if maybe some one could check on their tango phone and check the register keys this ics unlock tool modifies, and compare them? :angel:

Any news on ICS for 8862 on Samsung branded devices? Had to do a hard reset. Interop works fine, but nothing I tried makes ICS (ProvXML, WTT, registry, WP7RootTools) appear in the settings.

Thanks for any hint.

sorry to say but it seems that this thread is Abit dead.

maybe look at some other roms in the Samsung Forums, I can tell you that all the new roms have ICS

    3. Chervron unlock (vista/windows 7)

    IMPORTANT: CHEVRON CERTIFICATE expired on 25. Novembre 2011

    the chevron unlock certificate which you install on your device (step 2) expired on 25. Novembre 2011. The only solution to still be able to use the Chevron unlocker is to set on both your PC and your WP7 device to something before 25. Novembre 2011 and reboot both devices (!) before using the unlocker again.

    1. install first Windows Phone Developer tools to get the app loader from Microsoft, the developer reg key in your registry
    2. go with your mobile internet browser to page www.cr-developers.co.cc/cwp7.cer and install. the chevron cert.
    3. plug in phone and leave zune running
    4. run chevronwp7.exe (as administrator) , click both checkboxes
    5. click unlock

    4. Prevent Re-lock (stay chevron unlocked)

    1. Install a xap installer
    zip.gif
    XAPDeployX-V0.9.zip tnx kuerbis2
    2. Install a reg- Editor WP7RootTools 0.7 alpha.xap tnx Heathcliff7
    3. Now open the Registry Editor on your phone. Now navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Microsoft > DeviceReg.
    Now scroll to PortalUrlInt, remove its value data and save it. Do the same with PortalUrlProd. Both entries should now be "empty" (but not deleted!)

    PLEASE CHECK bevore update to Mango- you are 100% unlock!

    5. [GUIDE] INTEROP-UNLOCK (to stay unlocked on MANGO) tnx Heathcliff7 or if you like the WiFi InternetSharing on your un-branded ROM make step 6. instanded of 5.

    Thank you for the guide, but for me the unlock doesn't hold until mango. After all the updates are finished, the phone is locked again.
    If somebody knows what to do, please respond! I re-flashed already 3 times a new ROM and followed the instructions. After I finish unlocking device with Chevron, the program gives and error, maybe this is one of the causes.
    Cheers!

    the right chevron unlock and the pervent to re-lock are very importand. before update to mango test few times with connect and disconnect zune + deploy few xap ... if you can every time connect zune and deploy xap's then go step by step forward. after any updates to Mango make the interop-unlock steps ...

    Thanks for the great guide mirolg :)

    I haven't actually got my omnia yet I'm waiting on it coming but would like to unlock it when it does. My question is I want to have an unbranded firmware so could I use this one "Samsung Omnia 7 Firmware XXJL3 RETAIL UNITED KINGDOM"? I know it has to be pre nodo but I'm unsure if this one is or not? The one you have provided "Samsung Omnia 7 Firmware XXJJ6 ALL PROVIDERS" is this t-mobile branded?

    Any advice would be appreciated as I'm new to windows phone and still getting my head around it

    Cheers
    hi rob and welcome!

    T-Mobile branded.
