SETool V1.12 Release Notes
- added altbypass support for xperia arc_s model, in other words, phones with 8255T chipset fully supported.
- added resurrection support for s1 qualcomm-based phones with totally damaged security zone.
resurrection procedure will be described in FAQ later, however, in short it is standard "recovery+write gdfs+unlocking" chain. 7227,8250-based phones require special uart cables ( pinout included in docs ), however it is highly recommended to use special GPG cables 8x55-based phones does not require any special cables.
as side effect, imei repair possible now for s1 qualcomm-based phones. for 7227,8250-based phones need select COM as interface, options are: ( signed mode, altbypass mode, do full unlock, allow to change repair when unlocking, use testpoint (gnd type) ) for 8x50-based phones need select USB as interface, options are: ( signed mode, altbypass mode, do full unlock, allow to repair imei when unlocking )
cost of imei repair 5 credits, please take in mind, that if you repair imei, phone need to be unlocked, so add another 5 credits for unlock procedure.
if you have calculated signature for some imei, then you can save 5 credits for unlocking - added few models to model list, so users don't get confused
- different bugfixes
You need to be running at least version 1.12 of SETool software.
Please Note: To use SETool software v1.12 and higher you will need the new GSM-Support SETool Unlocking Box to put your setool card in, as old metal box's cannot read the card using 1.12 onwards.
Also Note: You will also need a uni pinout box to use the cables. Old metal box's are not uni pinout. The GSM-Support SETool Unlocking Box is a uni pinout box too and is needed to use these cables.
