Universal sim unlock for S-off’ed HTC devices
Here we go with yet another unlock solution.
This one applies to almost (if not all) devices which are radio S-off, it’s fairly easy to use and doesn’t wipe data/settings nor have that ugly side effect (when using diag files) in which you lose connectivity to mobile network.
LE: the list below is quite old and out of date, this should word with any S-OFF device (including HTC One M8). .
Supported devices so far:
- HTC Sensation (pyramid)
- HTC EVO 3D GSM (shooteru)
- HTC myTouch Slide 4G
(by the use of revolutionary)
- HTC Amaze
- HTC Rezound
- HTC Vivid/Raider/Velocity
(by the use of JuopunutBear)
Sprint EVO 4G
Droid Incredible (HTC Incredible)
(by the use of unrevoked 3)
These are the required steps you have to take:
1. S-off your phone by using the apropriate tool (if you haven’t already done that, check the above list).
2. Fill in the form with the required data. This will generate an unique Config.dat file for your device. Please enter a valid email address, as you’ll be sent there the link to download the file.

3. Put the file on the root of your sdcard (actual or virtual, depending on the type of your phone) and reboot your phone into HBOOT (adb reboot oem-42). Once you’re there, navigate to Simlock and press Power. The phone will load the file and remove the simlock. Some text will appear on the screen and at a certain point you’ll be asked to press Vol-Up to restart the phone.
4. Just do it, and you’ll be done!
This solution is heavily linked to the device it’s being applied to by the use of IMEI, which can be considered a breach in security.
This solution provided for you on this site is given AS IS and in GOOD FAITH and is based on the research I made. I may not accept any liability or responsibility for the use of this applicaton.
