How to Unlock All Samsung Galaxy S Models


Step 1. – Retrieve nv_data.bin file
use “adb shell” or a terminal emulator to get a terminal prompt and run the following commands

Code:

 

 

 

 

 

su
cat /efs/nv_data.bin >> /sdcard/nv_data.bin

 

 

Step 2. – Edit nv_data.bin file
mount the internal SD Card on your computer
make a backup copy of the nv_data.bin file on your computer
using your favorite HEX editor open the nv_data.bin on the sdcard
jump to address 0×181468

you should see a string like this
ff 01 00 00 00 00 46 46
there are 5 different types of locks in 5 different bytes
the FF byte should be left alone
the first byte after the FF is the network lock

the next byte is the network subset lock
the next byte is the sp lock
the next byte is the cp lock
the last byte appears to be a data lock.
the 46 46 should be left alone
Change any 0×01 to 0×00 (or 0×00 to 0×01 to lock for warranty)
It should read ff 00 00 00 00 00 46 46 for unlocked
save and close file
unmount SD Card

 

Step 3. – Replace nv_data.bin file
I want to say it again so no one misses it MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BACKUP OF YOUR NV_DATA.BIN FILE BEFORE YOU CONTINUE!!!!!

use “adb shell” or a terminal emulator to get a terminal prompt and run the following commands

Code:

su rm /efs/nv_data.bin rm /efs/nv_data.bin.md5 cat /sdcard/nv_data.bin >> /efs/nv_data.bin chmod 755 /efs/nv_data.bin chown radio.radio /efs/nv_data.bin || chown 1001.1001 /efs/nv_data.bin reboot

 

 

your phone is now unlocked… Cheers
