View Full Version : FLOCK – Free Unlocking S8500/S8530[By Rebellos & Mijoma]

05-14-2015, 07:42 AM
Hello Wavers,
Today i am posting a method for unlocking your Wave 1/Wave 2 which was developed by Rebellos & Mijoma from Xda-Developers.
Maybe many people would be knowing it or would have read it on xda, So it is nothing new that which i am posting here. I am posting this just for the info. This unlock was found in late Jan 2012.
So lets see how it works…
NOTE : All the files that you guys flash & the codes you enter in your phone is a little risky. If anything goes wrong or if you damage your phone its totally your responsibility. So please do not blame me or the developers for this & please act mature.
According to the developers mostly all Bada 1.2 & 2.0 bootloaders [Not the Beta firmware bootloaders] are supported for this unlock method.
Guys using this method will need the basic flashing knowledge for wave 1 or 2 as both are the same.
How to check what lock do you have?
Enter *#7465625# code, you will see list of active and inactive locks.
What do you need?
Wave 1 or 2 phone with bada 1.2 or 2.0
For Wave I with bada 1.2 – FLOCK_S8500_b1.2
For Wave I with bada 2.0 – FLOCK_S8500_b2x
For Wave II with bada 1.2 – FLOCK_S8530_b1.2
For Wave II with bada 2.0 – FLOCK_S8530_b2x
Steps To Obtain Code

Flash the Fota file given below in the downloading section as per your phone model and the OS[Bada 1.2 or 2.0] you use.

Turn off the phone. Wait few seconds, and then turn the phone on holding CALL (so you have to press CALL and ENDCALL keys simultaneously) key until white screen with red texts shows up. Then release both the keys.

Be patient, FOTA module is calculating 3 codes (Subset lock, Netlock, Unfreeze) for your phone, it can take up to 10 minutes. After you get the code you are interested in you can turn off the phone.

Steps After Obtaining The Codes
[Netlock], 2 ways:
1. enter unsupported SIM card, start phone and after being asked about “Network Lock” enter Unlock Code you had written down.
2. enter #7465625*638*Unlock code# <thanks to homelessghost for tip>
1. enter any SIM card, start phone and after being asked about “Freeze” make call and enter code you had written down.
Can anyone provide guide?
That’s it enjoy your unlocked Wave 1/2 http://tizenhub.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif
Instead of white screen with red texts, usual booting logo appears and then Bada starts, what am I doing wrong?
Make sure you flashed right FLOCK without errors. If you did so, first – flash APPS from the same bada version, but from ROM that does contain .fota (certain APPS versions can have locked FOTA module), second – if it doesn’t work - update your bootloader to some newer/another one and write post here containing information what version of bootloader (bootloader, not bada) you had before that was not working.
Important: Be very careful when writing down and entering unlock code.
If you got any other questions – please ask in this THREAD (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1473089).
It is possible that some phones are not unlockable this method. Then the code wouldn’t show up.
General method concept (if you are really interested in sources or way how it works – please PM me or mijoma) should work for most of “Samsung 3G” phones – like JET, Wave3, Monte. If you are owner of locked phone of this class and you are able to do dumps of memory – please contact Rebellos.
