Guys please advice me. I tryin to unlock HTC One M8. Updated to 1709. Both iutool gets me error. One version is HRESULT = 0x800b0114 and another one gets HRESULT = 0x8024a110. None of advice from 1st post didn't help. If i wait for few minutes the phone wont restart as well if i restart it by myself it wont enter into gears. Ive install acer spkg. Copy both ndtk dll into Documents folder on phone. But after i press step 2 button vcreg shuts down. So if i triyn to deploy nokia.executable_oemservicehost.generic.spkg and nokia.service_ndtksvc.generic.spkg i've got errors like i say. I don't understood how to interop my HTC phone.

Yo, I did every step until right after the gears showed up. Then my phone stuck on showing the little windows 10 icon and it just won't load the UI.... I removed the battery and put it back in.. same thing...
So, I fixed it by removing the battery for 2 minutes while praying to God to bring my phone back to life
Then I proceeded in doing the final steps all with reboots but, even after the last reboot, after pressing below the checked "Live Interop/Capability Unlock” checkbox
nothing changed... While pressing Full filesystem Access in the interop app the switch keeps going to off no matter what????? the f is going on?

Anyone alive to help a random fellow??

If the vcreg app doesn't fc when you load it, it worked. Just enable live interop unlock and use interop tools.

It just doesn't work. Did every step, checked the box, hit apply.... It won't freakin work. Then I found out about WPTweaker... Installed it and it worked without a sweat.
Sad thing is, today I tried to redo the steps but after doing step 3 and rebooting, vcreg and WPtweaker won't open at all. RIP.

I got it to work on my 950. I just loaded acersystemservice spkg , got the gears. Then loaded step 2 , it said success now reboot and proceed to step 3, then it asked me to reboot and enable interop unlock. Which device you got? If it's not a x50 Lumia, you should be able to just use interop tools I linked in previous post

I have the lumia 535...

Idk whats happening. Maybe the problem is that I use the latest interop tools version that may be incompatible?

Edit: it might be of use to note that I managed to get vcreg to work only* after 1st opening the vcreg app and tapping option 1, then proceeding with the iutool command with PowerShell :cowboy:

Don't extract from phone the ndtk , connect to pc and copy to documents. To save massive issues ?

Hi,

Happy New Year !!!

At last, trying to switch from my Lumia 950 to an Android phone and want to copy my WhatsApp messages.
as per the blog have tried to install vcreg, run the iutool and deploy the acer spkg, restart the mobile, copied the 2 DLL files to the document folder of the phone thru the USB cable copy.
When I try to run the vcreg app on the mobile, it still shows the error NDTksvc not loaded.

I am not sure what is going wrong...
If I go-ahead to step 2 in x50 series unlock, the app abruptly closes as soon as I click on the "step 2" button.

Please help.

Regards & Thanks,
Ram

Place the DLL files in Documents first. Open PowerShell on PC , plug phone and put the acerservices skpg in C:\acer

Run the command:

Code:
.\iutool.exe -v -p C:\acer

If you like you can took a look at this post I wrote

Good luck. Happy new year 🍻

DLL files have been pasted from SDcard and itool has ran successfully, but vcREG still crashes while i click step 2. is the version the reason causes the problem? my 950 is 1709 now.

Is the acerservice spkg in C:\acer ? You can try this is the iutool I used on a clean install of ffu.

Edit: if
Code:
.\iutool.exe -v -p C:\acer
don't work I tried this:

Code:
.\iutool.exe -V -p C:\acer

I noticed it was a headache to get it when u press option 2 n don't get it the first time. So I used wpinternals to clean install. It worked eventually.

do u have any ways to back up my data from a locked 950? i 'm afraid that if i clear the data, i may not download apps from the store...downloading apps from Microsoft store seems unaviliable for me. there are always some strange problems when i try. Thank you for your advice!

    vcREG is a registry editor for lumia windows phones that has SYSTEM level access to the registry. the tool also has the ability to unlock all app capabilities for third party apps(interop unlock), and give SYSTEM level access to most of the filesystem through MTP.

    new in version 1.7: thanks to @gus33000 for pointing out some registry values set for the interop unlock that may cause versions of rs1+ to break compatibility with WP8 apps. this has been fixed. For interop unlock, i suggest you use @gus33000 Interop Tools as his tool is more likely to have better support for changes in the future, as i am too bogged down with other projects.

    thanks to @Wack0Distractor for sharing the idea and the acer service that makes this unlock for the X50 series phones possible. also thanks to @ngame for providing the test devices and the many hours of debugging, and @djamol for the main reason any of these unlocks are possible.


    Instructions for X50 series phones like the 550,950/XL


    ndtk_acer_services.zip uploaded below contains acer.service.acersystemservice.spkg, NdtkSvc.dll, and newndtksvc.dll.

    1.Go to settings and turn on developer mode.

    2a. For APPX version, download vcregUWP_1.7+dependencies.zip,unzip, install dependencies, then install the vcreg appx

    2b. For XAP version, Sideload vcREG_1_7.xap using

    WP8 xap deployer
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v8.0\Tools\XAP Deployment\Xapdeploy.exe

    or

    WP Power Tools
    https://wptools.codeplex.com/

    3.Go to the app bar, then choose x50 series unlock. You will receive an error about the acer service not running. That's ok for now. Click step 1 and it will tell you to install the acer system service and copy some files. To install the acer system service, use iutool [rs and newer builds,this version is essential,old versions will probably not work] (can be found here. thanks @Wack0Distractor ).
    run this command as administrator
    iutool -v -p "path to the file acer.service.acersystemservice.spkg"

    if you receive error 0x80070490, disconnect your phone from usb, go to control panel on your pc, devices and printers, find your windows phone and remove device. reconnect the usb to your phone,and after it reinstalls the drivers automatically, run iutool command above again.

    if you receive error 0x8024a110, your phone should reboot to the gears UI in a minute. if not, run the command again. if it still doesnt auto reboot, manually reboot your phone. It should reboot into the gears UI, then back into the OS. if it still fails and doest show gears, give you phone a rest for 5-10 minutes and retry(usually needed after a new rom flash).

    4.When you're back in the phone OS, copy newndtksvc.dll and ndtksvc.dll to your documents folder on your phone through USB

    5.Go to the app bar, then choose x50 series unlock. You should no longer receive the error about the acer service. Now click step 2 and follow the rest of the instructions from the app.

    6.If you've taken the silent extras/advanced+info update, or updated that app manually, be sure to choose the option "Restore NDTK 950/XL" in the "x50 series unlock" page and reboot to regain access to the elevated features. It basically means if it suddenly stops working, apply this setting.




    Instructions for older devices


    1.Go to settings and turn on developer mode.

    2a. For APPX version, download vcregUWP_1.7+dependencies.zip,unzip, install dependencies, then install the vcreg appx

    2b. For XAP version, Sideload vcREG_1_7.xap using

    WP8 xap deployer
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v8.0\Tools\XAP Deployment\Xapdeploy.exe

    or

    WP Power Tools
    https://wptools.codeplex.com/

    3.Go to the app bar, then choose classic unlock

    3.If you've taken the silent extras+info update, or updated that app manually, be sure to choose the option "Restore NDTK" in the "classic unlock" page and reboot to regain access to the elevated features. It basically means if it suddenly stops working, apply this setting.

    Not bad to add this that Our New hack for X50 series tested on both RS1 and TH2 (10586.107 to 14393.67) and these OS Versions are tested and supported :) Thanks for you and @djamol's hard work and other guys who helped in this hack .
    Also here is a video that show you I added work with gloves on my 950XL to my phone and it work and etc.

    Sorry for my bad English

    Guys Do not TRY Full FILESYSTEM ACCESS ON X50 Series .

    If you want to Change your X50/XL device font please try this app :

    OK.

    If you get 0x8024a110, you're probably on 14393 / anniversary update / Redstone1/whatever.

    If so, you NEED to use iutool from the 14393 WDK. No ifs, no buts. Use that or you WILL get that error.

    Here's a download of just the WP-tools (iutool, getdulogs, ffu creation etc etc) direct from MS: https://download.microsoft.com/down...5524A95/wdk/Installers/WP_CPTT_NT-x86-fre.msi

    Mirrored it here just in case.
