I want to developer unlock Windows Phone through WP8.1 SDK tools lite in order to interop unlock it later. But it is showing error logging into Windows Phone Dev Center as shown in screenshot. I tried to use different Microsoft account, re-installed Windows Phone SDK tools for both WP8 and WP8.1, also tried on another computer, googled for help, changed Windows firewall settings, uninstalled Visual Studio and then reinstalled it.
But no avail.
I tried aiyingyong pc 4.6 but I couldn't developer unlock my phone. ANY HELP

You must use "Microsoft Developer account" not "Microsoft account".

You are right but earlier I used to sign in with my regular Microsoft Account. May be things have changed on their side.

I tried the Chinese tool, but not working. And WP Internals is a way for rooting and getting the same features but my Lumia 730 needs to be updated to W10M for that and I can't create rooted WP8.1 version.

Did you ever get a solution for this? I'm facing the same problem and can't figure out why. It worked twice in the past couple of days, even though it gave the same error, the phone was unlocked. But today no dice, just throws the error, that's it.

Do interop unlock just after resetting phone.

I guess you have performed reset.

When you are resetting the phone, don't add your Microsoft account and DO NOT update the any apps from Store either. Some apps such as Extras & Info or Lumia Motion Data getting updated might be causing interop unlock process to break in some way. I noticed that few times.

Just after resetting the phone go for interop unlock procedure. And do rest of things later. And yes, to be on safer side install both WP8.0 and WP8.1 SDK tools Lite

It worked for me somehow. But nice to see Windows Phone user in some part of the world in 2019. We are a rare species now. 😁😁

I think the problem is that Microsoft has stopped supporting WP8.1

Developing for Windows Phone has been worse than developing for Android. Microsoft has blocked the store for WP8.1, has blocked the registration of development terminals and also WP8.1 does not allow applications to be installed if the phone is not development.

The worst part is that they stopped allowing unlocks before the Windows Store closure, without any notice.
When they stopped allowing WP8.0 to be developer unlocked, they did an announcement.
