From: XDA developers

It is with pride and utter insanity that we announce the release
of XDA manipulator. The XDA manipulator allows one to unlock SID
and GID locks, reset the call duration counters and change the
IMEI of the XDA/MDA/SX56/...

You'll need a serial cable. See the page for disclaimer and
warning. Enjoy.

I only have the USB crade and not the serial connector.

Will you be making a version of the SW that supports USB or IR?

I dont recall a serial cable coming with the XDA pack. Where
would you typically get one?

Thank you very much

Gene_uk,

The retail O2 shops sell a basic range of xda accessories at
reasonable prices. This includes serial cradle.

Phone your local outlet or try online at wws.o2.co.uk.

this is great, now has anybody tried the call timer reset? i
like the name xda manipulator, great work xda developers!

i am looking at testing this using a usb to serial adapter, i
have a feeling that it would not work, will give it a try
though, will post my results later, thanks again.

Subject: Simlock
From: Eric
Date: 11 Jan, 2003 12:00:09

Hi,

When i go in bootloader mode what have i to do next, because how
do i enter ""dualser'" and can i type something?

Best Regards,

Eric

Even without this tool, some of these things are pretty easy
once you know the trick. For instance, if you just put the XDA
in bootloader mode and enter "dualser", followed by
"AT%UREG?3FE00C,4", you will see the SID unlock code. More news
about all the things we've learned will be available soon on our
GSM research page.




Subject: SID Code
From: Si
Date: 11 Jan, 2003 13:04:31

Can you give us step by step on this one, I'd like to be able to
get the code out of my phone but haven't got a clue how and only
have a US cradle?




Subject: Unlock: serial only (for now)
From: XDA developers
Date: 11 Jan, 2003 20:11:06

At present, we do not have a method of taling to the modem once
Windows CE (a.k.a. Pocket PC) is running. This has to do with
the fact that TAPI, a part of Windows, has opened the port, and
one can only talk to the modem "through" TAPI.

We're working on this problem, unlocking being only one of the
reasons. No predictions as to the when, so if you wish to use
Manipulator's functionality today, you must get a serial cable.

You can issue some of the commands that this tool is issuing "by
hand", but again, only when using a serial cable. This is what
we meant when we talked about "dualser": this is a command for
the bootloader which is entered through the serial port."




Subject: Works with RS Version 4.14
From: Gene_uk
Date: 12 Jan, 2003 14:10:47

Hi All!

I am happy to report that not only does the manipulator work
with radio stack version 3.06 and 3.10 but also version 3.14,
the lastest RS from O2 Europe.

Date: 12 Jan, 2003 18:36:07

Massive congratulations to xda developers for sussing out how to
get the unlock code (I used the dualser method as was risk free,
and hey presto, my unlock number right in front of me)

I got an XDA for chirstmas and have spend hours and hours ever
since trying to find a solution to the sim lock....I knew it
wouldnt be long before the guys here sorted it out.

A big big ....big thanks - top work.

From: Mitnick

The manipulator works well on a XDA with 64 Mb?
I would want buy one device and unlock it to use with my
vodafone SIM.

Thx a lot

Subject: USB Solution
From: MADmanFREE
Date: 14 Jan, 2003 18:08:40

I await the USB solution.......

Perhaps if we started a list of unlock codes?
Would these not work the same for everybody??

Or does each device have a specific code.... ???

Will there be an USB solution?




Subject: Question unlock
From: Mitnick
Date: 16 Jan, 2003 09:07:21

To unlock the XDA it is indispensable to have the O2 Sim?
Can be used the manipulator without inserted the O2 SIM in the
telephone?

I am in order to buy a XDA locked but it will arrive without O2
Sim.

Thx a lot
Mitnick :)




Subject: Manipulator doesn't need SIM
From: XDA developers

You can use the manipulator without the SIM inserted. All you
need is a serial cable.

Subject: what about ROM upgrades.
From: ansaar
Date: 16 Jan, 2003 20:47:37

Somewhere you mentioned that OFFICIAL rom upgrade software
sometimes does all kinds of checks on the device before
upgrading.

- will unlocking the ROM possibly stop you receiving an official
upgrade?

- will the unlocked ROM be re-locked via a new ROM upgrade?






Subject: It all works...
From: XDA developers
Date: 16 Jan, 2003 22:57:53

Mitnick: yes, manipulator will work fine with 64 MB XDA

ansaar: Unlocking the phone will have no negative consequences,
and no upgrade will turn the locks back on. It's just like
buying the unlock code from a provider and entering it.




Subject: Thank's
From: Mitnick
Date: 17 Jan, 2003 00:18:18

XDA Dev. Thanks for all info and thanks for all works!!!
Today I have acquired my XDA not as soon as it arrives to me I
will try the tool manipulator.
If I have problems I will try your help :wink:

You are the best!

Subject: Does it work for MDA, too?
From: George
Date: 18 Jan, 2003 01:43:21

Does it work for the MDA, too? I wouldn't actually need it for
unlocking (since the MDA is not locked), but the call meter
reset would be of interest for me.

Can I use the standard "serial hotsync cable" that o2 and
T-Mobile offers, or is there something special about the cable
that is needed for the Manipulator?

Subject: Terminal program
From: ShawnyD
Date: 18 Jan, 2003 19:20:48

Dear Sirs,

I'm unable to unlock my XDA (WALLABY Bootloader v5.15)
using your Manipulator. Thus I would like to try your technique.
But what is a Terminal program and where do I get one from?

Please advise.

Regards,


S.




Subject: FINALLY UNLOCKED
From: ShawnyD
Date: 18 Jan, 2003 21:30:17

After downloading and installing HyperACCESS (and communicating
with COM port of XDA) I tried using the Manipulator again. This
time with success!

Thanks to all concerned.

Respect.

it is possible to lock the XDA and subsequently to unlock again the XDA?

Example: unlock XDA (working) - breakdown xda (obviously it is only an example :? :x ) - :?: lock XDA :?: - repair xda - unlock again XDA :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yes it is: Put the device in bootloader mode, and connect it using a serial cable. On your PC, connect to the serial port using a terminal program set at 115200-n-8-1. At the command prompt enter "dualser" and wait for the modem command interpreter to come up. Then enter:

at%sidlck=1,xxxxxxxx

Where the 8 x's are replaced by the 8-digit code you want to lock your phone with.

Just got my serial cable from datanywhere yesterday, ran the manipulator & unlocked my ATT SX56. The first time it didn't do anything after entering bootloader (may be because phone was turned off before reboot), but the next time went through just fine. Tested the GSM side with Cingular SIM & it worked fine.

A huge THANK YOU to XDA developer

Hi
I'm desperetly to get a serial cable to enable my XDA in Luxembourg. I wondered if someone has tried the infrared port with the manipulator? I don't know how infrared works under Win2000 but under NT with the utility Quickbeam you get an com port assigned. So I wonder if I could try the infrared port?

Cheers
Mick

I have no idea whats everyone talking about...Please help

I wish to get to know my XDA better and you guys seem to know alot. Although I may not know much about programming and computers, I can feel that XDA-developers have acheived alot. Thats how much you guys should know what you have acomplished. Excellent WORK!!!!

As for my questions, please be patient with me and hope you will able to answer them. Thanks.

I dont get what you mean by simlock? The way i understand simlock, it is when you entered your sim pincode three times wrongly and it gets locked. Is this the same meaning? In my country Singapore, all we have to do is call our provider and they will give us an unlock code which is free of charge. Do other providers in other countries charge you for doing that?

Regarding the Simlock. With the XDA manipulator, I can unlock any simcard?? ie, any simcard that has been locked after 3 failures of incorrect password entry.

Whats the meaning of IMEI? Isnt it like an identification for the phone? If you change it, what are the implications of it? Wouldnt O2 think your phone is fake since the IMEI is not one that was produced by them?

What is ROM? I thought RAM was what I should be concerned about when upgrading. Please try to help me on this one please.

BTW, Why the hell O2 didnt employ you to develop the XDA!! Dumbasses.

SIMlock is the lock that locks your phone (and not the SIM) to a specific (set of) providers. This is so that they can subsidize the phone and be 'sure' you stay until the end of your contract. You can always buy (at outrageous prices), what is called an 'unlock code' to get an 'unlocked' phone.

This is not the same as what happend when you type your PIN wrong 3 times. This indeed locks the SIM, and you need what is called a 'PUK code' to get back in. You got your PUK when you got the SIM, and the provider can give it to you again if you lose it.


Lycon said:

IMEI stands for International Mobile Equipement Identitfier and is a hardware serial number tied to the phone, and transmitted with every call. Whether you attract attention with a chnaged IMEI depends on whether you choose an IMEI in the same range or not. Nobody really checks IMEIs, not even against a blacklist of stolen phones, as was originally intended by the GSM MoU. They use IMEI to track who is using what phones, in case people under investigation switch SIMs.

Your operating system software resides in ROM, your own files and running programs are in RAM.

Can I set an personalize GIDLock on my XDA?
SIM -> vodafone

Probably. The AT command (to be issued at 115200 bps in bootloader mode after entering 'dualser' is probably something like AT%LCKGID 1,xxxxxxxx. But maybe you first have to tell it what to lock to. (But then again, maybe not).

Feel free to play around, you will probably be able to use the Manipulator to get back in... :)

Oh, Baby!

I just received my serial cable from Moonlight Tech twenty minutes ago, made a cup of tea, put my T-Mobile XDA into bootloader mode, connected the serial cable, started the XDA manipulator, and voila! The unlock button stood out for me to press!!!! Unlocked my phone, reset my call life counter, amazing, and all in less than five minutes!

I got on a bit of a trip and unlocked my colleague's O2 64MB XDA as well, so we're both happy. Both had bootloader Wallaby v5.20, but I also performed it on an AT&T Siemens SX56 that had been sitting in my drawer for a while.

Popped in SIM cards from AT&T, Cingular, Orange, and Vodaphone (all pre-paid) and they all work!

Thanks to the hard-working guys who came up with this tool!!!!

:D
