How to Unlock the Huawei E220 HSDPA modem

How to Unlock the Huawei E220 HSDPA modem published on 1 Comment on How to Unlock the Huawei E220 HSDPA modem

Huawei e220 or Vodafone e220 is the HSDPA modem we usually get from Dialog Telecom or Mobitel GSM (probably from Airtel) when we purchase a mobile broadband connection. But usually it’s operator locked, so we can’t switch between networks when the current ISP starts treating us like dust, If you’ve read my previous post you know I have my reasons to unlock the Huawei e220 modem I got from Dialog Telecom. Here I’m gonna explain how I did that and I’ll try to be as simple as I can. But Feel free to ask for help if u need any.


Disclaimer: I’m not responsible, nor will be held liable, for anything you do with the information I provide in this tutorial. Use it at your own risk.

Ok, since we are done with the traditional “Disclaimer” Lets see what you have to do.

First you’ll have to download the following tools.
e220 CardLock UnLocker
e220 Updater version
QC Mobile Analysis Tool
And a Hex editor. But if you do it correctly you can do it with an ordinary text editor too 😉

Or you can download and extract this file. It contains all the tools we need for the job, including a lightweight portable hex editor 🙂

Basically, Unlocking the e220 is simple as running the E220 CardLock Unlock tool and entering the unlock code and pressing the “Ok” button. But that’s when you “know” the unlock code.


So how do we find the unlock code for our modem? that’s where the other tools come in handy.

Plug your modem to the computer and run the E220 Updater. Wait till it detects your modem and then press the “Cancel” button. yes! Cancel it! This is just to make it easier for the “real tool” to identify the modem.

e220UpdateNow open the QC BQS Analyzer and click on Hardware forensics menu, select Use Com/USB Port
QCMob-1Now the “QC Com Diag” window should be open. Most of the time your modem and com port is automatically selected on the Serial Com port drop down list. If not you’ll have to select it manually. And then click on the “Send Cmd” button and wait till the message “Successfully sent command” appears on the bottom right.

Now Select ” Read EFS” from the Diag Functions drop down menu and Click the “Lets go” button. When it asks, enter the file name e220.bin and save it. A message saying “Successfully read EFS” should appear.


Now its time to do some hex reading 🙂 Open the e220.bin file from your Hex Editor. And search for the ASCII string Sd, (including the comma) or Search for the for the Hex string 53 64 2c
After few random characters you’ll see a clean 8 digit code. Believe me, it’s easily recognizable and guess what! thats our Unlock code 😀

HexOnce you’ve found the unlock key all you have to do is enter it on the CardLock Unlock utility and click “OK” And your modem is… Unlocked!!! 😀

Hope this will be helpful. I’d absolutely love to know your views on this. Good luck with unlocking your modems 🙂

FirefoX RoX! here are some haX Part

FirefoX RoX! here are some haX Part published on No Comments on FirefoX RoX! here are some haX Part

Remember some guys blamed me that there’s no use in opening Firefox inside Firefox? 👿 . Ok! Here is an useful one. 😀
You know what happens when you type a “word” in the Firefox address bar right? yes it gives a Google search on that “word”. As an example if we type “wordpress” in the address bar and press Enter key then Firefox will Google for “wordpress”.
But what if you want to go to or ?. Ok here is the trick!
First open a new tab in Firefox by pressing Ctrl+T type “ANYTHING” in the address bar and press Ctrl+Enter It will automatically add http:// and .com and go to
If you press Shift+Enter It will go to and pressing Ctrl+Shift+Enter will automatically add http:// and .org and will go to
How cool is that?… 😕 well, not that cool.But I’m sure its useful

Forbidden side of a web site-See what web sites hide from you published on 1 Comment on Forbidden side of a web site-See what web sites hide from you

It seems my previous trick (or hack) on Firefox has become a bit famous.isn’t it? Anyways! Here is another hack (man! am I becoming a life hacker or what! 🙄 ) this is a really curious thing to check out.
We all know what search engines do right? yes Search! baby search! they search every where for everything. And what do web site owners do? The do various SEO (search engine optimization) stuff to make the things easy for the search engines so the SE’s will search the directories inside the web sites easily and bring more traffic to the site!. Hm… Ok C.J.! enough of the technical stuff,why are you telling us all this? This is why…
Do you know that there are some directories in web sites that they don’t want the general public to know about? Well, there are! Then what do the site owners do to hide them from us? They bribe the search engines 😀 Hm…
well what they do is put a text file including the directory names, that should be excluded when searching. So the search engines read that file first and exclude their content in the search results page……
But you know that us geeks can’t stay out of trouble right? Yes! there’s a way you can see what are the hidden directories are! All you got to do is put /robots.txt after the domain name and see what the site owners don’t want you to see 😈
How about checking out what Mr.Bill Gates got to hide from us? 😀 Here you go
And what about larry and sergei? yeh!

And guys(and gals) you better not to use this with or else Our good old buddy Matt will kick me out of WP 😯 .Well,he is a very open guy and may not have anything to hide 😀 But why take the risk 😆

Our Manifesto!@#

Our Manifesto!@# published on No Comments on Our Manifesto!@#

Hi All!
After a long time… yeh!@# no need to say that i’m “three” busy to update ma blog. anyways!@# thought this is “The time to spend some Time” updating ma blog so i’m now publishing something which wasn’t actually written by me, I always wanted to publish this but had no opportunity to do so, As a clue, this is the literature of our TYPE. “so what on earth is that?” you might ask ok go on!@#
This is a classic article written by a “The Mentor” which shows some insight into the mind of a computer hacker. This article can be found all over the Internet and is a staple on many “hacker” websites. The article apparently first appeared in the hacker magazine =Phrack Inc.=, Volume One, Issue 7, Phile 3 of 10.

                       /The Conscience of a Hacker//


                               +++The Mentor+++

                          Written on January 8, 1986=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

        Another one got caught today, it's all over the papers.  "TeenagerArrested in Computer Crime Scandal", "Hacker Arrested after Bank Tampering"...        Damn kids.  They're all alike.

        But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950's technobrain,ever take a look behind the eyes of the hacker?  Did you ever wonder whatmade him tick, what forces shaped him, what may have molded him?        I am a hacker, enter my world...        Mine is a world that begins with school... I'm smarter than most ofthe other kids, this crap they teach us bores me...        Damn underachiever.  They're all alike.

        I'm in junior high or high school.  I've listened to teachers explainfor the fifteenth time how to reduce a fraction.  I understand it.  "No, Ms.Smith, I didn't show my work.  I did it in my head..."        Damn kid.  Probably copied it.  They're all alike.

        I made a discovery today.  I found a computer.  Wait a second, this iscool.  It does what I want it to.  If it makes a mistake, it's because Iscrewed it up.  Not because it doesn't like me...                Or feels threatened by me...                Or thinks I'm a smart ass...                Or doesn't like teaching and shouldn't be here...        Damn kid.  All he does is play games.  They're all alike.

        And then it happened... a door opened to a world... rushing throughthe phone line like heroin through an addict's veins, an electronic pulse issent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... a board isfound.        "This is it... this is where I belong..."        I know everyone here... even if I've never met them, never talked tothem, may never hear from them again... I know you all...        Damn kid.  Tying up the phone line again.  They're all alike...

        You bet your ass we're all alike... we've been spoon-fed baby food atschool when we hungered for steak... the bits of meat that you did let slipthrough were pre-chewed and tasteless.  We've been dominated by sadists, orignored by the apathetic.  The few that had something to teach found us will-ing pupils, but those few are like drops of water in the desert.

        This is our world now... the world of the electron and the switch, thebeauty of the baud.  We make use of a service already existing without payingfor what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn't run by profiteering gluttons, andyou call us criminals.  We explore... and you call us criminals.  We seekafter knowledge... and you call us criminals.  We exist without skin color,without nationality, without religious bias... and you call us criminals.You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to usand try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals.

        Yes, I am a criminal.  My crime is that of curiosity.  My crime isthat of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like.My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive mefor.

        I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto.  You may stop this individual,but you can't stop us all... after all, we're all alike.

Hi Firefox lovers! Here’s a great news for you guys (or gals). Remember I told you about “Flock” on my post “Life made easy with Flock” this time I found an extension for Firefox which lets you post in to your blog Actually my good old buddy Chanux is the one who introduced it to me. Its “Performancing” For my self it seems to be far better than the blog posting tool which comes with “Flock” because previous post can be easily edited with this, and there’s more! Why don’t you guys(or gals) give it a try?

Emulate with QEMU!

Emulate with QEMU! published on No Comments on Emulate with QEMU!

The first day I met Ven.ilgo (my Linux guru) The venerable thero showed me a magic (it was that much surprising for me at that day) with his Linux installed laptop by Booting “Windows Xp” within a window of his Debian Linux installation. Although we could see it in a window, “Windows Xp” seems to be acting just as it was the only OS running at that moment He has installed Firefox and even a python interpreter.
“First I used this to make my machine useful to another monk who refused to work with linux because he was a great fan of “MS Word Macro’s But now I use QEMU to check how well my python scripts work in Windows” said Ven.ilgo
After few minuets in “Windows” We were shutting down WinXp, guess what! Windows crashed!
“This is a joke! I can’t believe how people use this in their day2day life” it was ven.ilgo.
“May be it’s because of the Emulation? ” I replied.
“Oh no, It’s True that QEMU might slower than a normal windows installation. But not when KQEMU installed with 1GB of RAM. At least its fast enough not to crash” said the Venerable thero.(KQEMU is a driver allowing the QEMU PC emulator to run much faster when emulating a PC)
“What if we just close this window without shutting down windows?” It was me
“Then Windows will assume it as a power loss and run ‘the famous disk scan!’ “
That was enough for me at that day but wasn’t enough for me later so I Used QEMU after having a good tutorial from Ven.ilgo. I always wanted to cover a post on this but couldn’t done it coz of ma absence of leisure. Here is it now
(important : This is not a QEMU man page. This is just a simple intro to QEMU)

Ok First We should install QEMU

apt-get install qemu

when qemu is installed try typing ‘qemu‘ to check weather its up and running or not

I assume U guys (or gals) are going to emulate ‘Windows’ Normally
windows will need 2Gb disk space so lets create a image file which will
act as an HDD during the emulation

qemu-img create win.img 2048mb

Yes! U can change the name or file size as U like.

Then create an ISO image of a CD which containing windows XP U can do
it by selecting the “copy to disk image” option which comes after
selecting copy from the right click menu of CD icon Give the name as “winXP.iso“

And now to switch on Ur emulated PC type we boot from CD now

qemu -hda win.img -cdrom /path/to/winXP.iso -boot d

You should replace the /path/to/winXP.iso with the correct path

now a window looking like a normal BIOS will open then act as U normally do during windows windows setup.

After installing U have to boot from HDD then type

qemu -hda win.img -cdrom /path/to/ANY.iso -boot c

If U want to install softwares in to Windows (or drivers) simply
create an ISO image which contains the softwares and replace the
/path/to/ANY.iso with the correct path and name of ISO image.

Check man qemu for further info.U can Use
a SAMBA server to transfer files between Linux and WIndows. But i don’t
know whether it supports winXP or not.

Oh! for the guys(or gals) who have been thinking. Yes! U can Use
another distro of Linux to emulate within QEMU too after all Why
Emulate being a fool? 😉


Life made easy with Flock

Life made easy with Flock published on No Comments on Life made easy with Flock

Hi guys I’m typing this post with the help of an open source browser called flock. It seems to be interesting coz this browser has a built-in blog posting software which support not only WordPress but also Typepad, Movable type, MetaWeblog, Blogger & Atom. And the next best thing is this browser is using the source codes of our good old buddy FireFox!. This thing Looks like FF with a new color and extensions installed. I’m hoping to keep this browser handy for ma blog posting, but FF is gonna be with me for a looong time than this coz i’m still using it for browsing. I think FF guys must be careful with this competiting “Twin Brother”

Oh! and for the guys (or gals) who are interested with ma results see the comments of ma last post 😉
