I have a Huawei E5787Ph-67a which is locked to an Australian operator Telstra and have been trying to unlock the device to work with other service providers.

So far my attempts to use the various Huawei code generators posted on various forums has not been very successful as the Huawei E5787Ph-67a requires a factory code which is in 16 digit Alphanumeric format. I have even tried paid online unlocking services but they have not been able to provide me the code.

The current Firmware version: 21.235.01.00.302 and Current Web UI version: 21.100.19.00.302.

I have managed to download the factory firmware on the web which is not an update EXE file but instead a BIN file: E5787Ph-67a_UPDATE_21.235.01.00.302_WEBUI_21.100.19.00.302_NE5.bin

I managed to put it into firmware update mode using the following steps:

1. Install driver: HUAWEI PRODUCT LINE WINDRIVER 2.78.12.00

2. Press and hold Reset and power on button simultaneously.

3. On the screen you will see "ready to update" and then "Installing".

4. Now connect E5787PH-67a to PC with USB cable.

5. Wait for few seconds to install the drivers on your computer and verify the Device manager shows the Huawei device under Ports (COM & LPT).

But after doing the above I am unable to connect via Balong_USB_Downloader or dc-unlocker2client no matter which set of ports I select. I was not able to telnet or ssh into it either via Putty.

I was wondering if there was a way to edit the E5787Ph-67a_UPDATE_21.235.01.00.302_WEBUI_21.100.19.00.302_NE5.BIN file to unlock the operator restrictions and upload it to the modem.

Any suggestions will be highly appreciated or any previous experience along this route with this device will be welcome.
