Step 1

Required Softwares for the Hack. Here it is again for free !!! Click Here
  • Huawei E220 Firmware
  • Hex Editor XVI32
  • QMAT - QC Mobile Analysis Tool
  • E220 SimLock Unlocking Tool

Step 2
  • Remove the SIM card and connect the E220 USB Modem to the PC
  • Run the E220 Firmware

  • Then wait untill it detect the modem interface

  • After the detection of Modem, you will get the following window. Press Cancle


  • Press Yes to Quit from the Firmware Update Process and this completes the Step 2

  • Select the correct COM interface which was detected by Firmware Updater


  • Select Command VERNUM and Press Send Cmd. Then you will get version number and display Successfully Send Command at Bottom of the window if you correctly set the COM interface. If this not succes then make sure you are selected correct COM interface


  • Now Select Read EFS and set the End address as 00001000 and then press Lets Go.Now you will asked to save the file. Give name as Flash.bin and save it any where.

  • You will get Successfully read EFS if all the things went correct.


Step 4

  • Run XVI32 Hex Editor and Open the saved file Flash.bin

  • Find the Hex String 53 64 2C 00 or Text String Sd in the dump. Select menu item, Search -> Find


  • In the same line of the corresponding place of the right side window will show the 8 digit lock code of your modem. It is easy to find that, there is no other 8 consecutive digit in the same line of the string 53 64 2C 00



Step 5

  • Run E220 SIM Lock Unlock and enter the unlock code of your modem


  • Hurrayyyyyyy......... It is successfully unlocked. Now you can use it for any Network

  12. Try with E226. Might be worked but not sure. There will be no harm for reading flash file into PC. After that there will be Unlock code in a different location. So search string will not be same as 53 64 2C 00

    Please update us with d result

    ReplyDelete
  18. if you keep searching for the string, it will eventually find it..as tutorial says, you knpow which one you need, because it's the only one with 8 digits grouped together..unlocked mine perfectly, to change profile, just create a new profile, and leave everything blank.

    ReplyDelete

    If the string is not the same as 53 64 2C 00 ?
    Should I just look for any 8 digits together ?

    Thanks

  43. HI I'm stuck at the part with the XVI32 Hex Editor. I loaded flash.bin and there's nothing! Any idea what went wrong?

    I did QC Mobile correctly and I had 'successfully read EFS'.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Works perfectly, nice post!! I have E220 from Vodafone UK, and actually the unlock code is not as exactly described in this post.
    1. Don't search for the full string 53 64 2C 00, only search for 53 64. There are likely to be a couple of instances, you want the first instance of this.
    2. The unlock code is not exactly after it, it's maybe next line down in the hex util. Look for 8 numbers in the ASCII window on the right, 1 line below the 53 64 string - it's very obvious what the unlock code is. There are no other sequential numbers around it.

    Other than that, excellent post! I am sitting here happily on Virgin Australia using an unlocked VF UK E220!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Search for "Sd" as Text string and you will get the same result !!!

  65. Yay! Thanks for this.

    Ok so for those that struggle. Here is the low down.

    First off, just search for 53 64 on the matrix.

    Then even if you get 53 64 21 00 use the 8 digits on the opposite side, even if its a row below.

    Then I got an error message "open port failed" This is cause your system is trying to access the dongle with more than 1 program.

    I then installed the unlocker on my desktop and ran the number through there.

    Voila! Both Tmobile and Three unlocked.

    Tested my Tmobile dongle with the Three sim. Yes, worked!

    Thanks!

  118. dude this is owesome. But just not that the unlock code isn't always consecutive integers. They are consecutive whole numbers. mine had many 0's.

  119. Please help me to unlock my E220. I've followed all the procedures without a success.
    The string that can be found is '53 64' and 'Sd' on the ASCII side, but there is no code. Can I send my flash bin file to anyone who is willing to help me find the unlocking code please. My e-mail

    1. In my binary file I found 2 times this string "Sd". The unlock code was close to first one, not second one. Try to search the string more than one times. You will find the string and the unlock code close to it.

  121. Hi. I tried this however my unlocking tool (CardLock_Unlock.exe) stopped responding so I had to stop the tool. Now, my modem could not be detected. It still appears as one of the drives in Windows explorer but it doesn't appear under the ports in device manager. The firmware updater could not detect it as well.
    Is there still a way to make this work? Thanks in advance.
