Well I downloaded the software and from there I have no idea what I am doing.
Whenever I plug in the phone after pressing connect I get found new hardware wizard popping all the time.
Thanks for posting this mate. I'm going to have a go now and I hope I don't screw it up. Those instructions look very simple to follow - almost too simple LOL
Just a quick question though, there is no mention in the readme on how to backup your firmware. Can someone please confirm that the only steps to follow are
Make the patch
Apply patch to DB2020 CID52
and that I dont need to do anything else at all?
Yay, used the tut+files posted above to unlock my daughters Orange W580.
Only diffrence is to get the correct flash+config files.
W580_R8BA024_MAIN_GENERIC_LA_RED52 <-main .mbn
W580_R8BA024_FS_CENT_EUROPE_RED52 <-FS .fbn
W580i_CDA102774_101_R3A_Customized_United_Kingdom <-config (unzip and place the folder 'tpa' in a folder called 'own_custpack' where the XS exe is and choose 'own custom' file in the XS flash settings menu, as XS doesn't have config files natively for W580)
..these files seem to be working just fine, but i don't know if they are the reccomended ones, but seems ok and all is working with a O2 PayasyouGo sim.
these files can be got from hxxp://www.4shared.com/ ,just use the search box (copy and paste the file names above)
tip... practise taking the battery cover off before starting as you need to take the battery out at one stage when using the SELite tool in the 2nd part of the process (just read on screen instructions), press+pull cover down from the 'top middle' seems to work best on W580.
