BAM ZTE MF60 Unlocked!





Hi guys, happy to tell you that now is possible to unlock any ZTE MF60 modem, especially Iusacell Mexico.

En Español: aqui esta en manual como liberar un router ZTE MF 60 de Iusacell Mexico o cualquier compania del mundo. Espero sus comentarios!



So first of all a sad story - as you know the carriers in Mexico are kind of bad, they do not have well educated staff and they do not follow any ethical norms with the client. I have my Iusacell ZTE MF60 half a year, but suddenly i had problem with the service and they did not help me.




I desired to unlock it, but there are restrictions:




1. Modem is carrier locked and you can not use another sim, also unlocking with code is forbidden.

2. Iusacell does not unlock modems even for a fee.

3. You can not flash it or upgrade, there's a custom firmware build.

En Español:  El modem esta bloqueado a su compania (Iusacell por ejemplo), y no sirve con chip de otra, tampoco no hay chance liberar con codigo de liberacion, porque esta function prohibida por Iusacell. Pero vamos liberarlo!


Good news : Now we gonna unlock it for free




All you need is:

1. Modem ZTE MF60 and usb cable , driver

2. QPST

3. UK Firmware for MF60

En Español:  Descargamos archivos 2 y 3 (Para Windows) es QPST y Actualizacion generica para nuestro modem en Ingles (Inglaterra)

So here we go


1. Plug you ZTE MF60 to usb of PC, if is the first time you plug it - open CD and install modem driver, so it will be detected as : virtual ethernet interface, AT commands port and Diagnostic port


2. Pay attention wich COM port number will be assigned to Diagnostic and AT ports

3. Install QPST, after installation first of all open Start -> QPST -> QPST Configuration and add device, if is not visible click Add port and add everything you see in the list

En Español:  Conectar modem atraves de cable USB, instalar driver y QPST
1. Cuando nuestro equipo esta detectado como el modem en windows - abrimos Configuracion de QPST , Inicio -> QPST -> QPST Configuration.

2. En configuracion si no vemos el modem - agregamos con boton "Add port" al final debemos ver algo similar que aparece en imagen abajo

It will look more less like this




-

4. After the modem will be detected open

Start -> QPST -> EFS Explorer

5. In the ESF Explorer clock to the root directory "/" and scroll down until you see files like ZTEModem.iso

En Español: Abrimos Inicio ->  QPST -> EFS Explorer, clic a carpeta / y con scroll abajo hasta vemos archivos con nombres ZTEModem.iso, version, config



the picture is just an example how EFS Explorer looks like




6. Delete files "Version, Config" (Please do a backup in case if something will go wrong put it back) and close all QPST wondows

En Español: eliminamos archivos Version, config (recomiendo hacer copia de archivos para recoperar si paso algo raro.)




7. Unpack and run UK Firmware for MF60 exe. When update process is over you must run UK Firmware for MF60 again and update your device one more time to take out IUSACELL lock , or whatever network

En Español: Abrimos UK Firmware for MF60 y actualizamos nuestro modem 2 veces!


Notice: i got my MF60 unlocked since i flashed it twice, first time it got locked to some UK network and than unlocked. wifi name must be uFi_999999 (password 12345678), if you have it - congrats webgui password: admin

En Español: despues tenemos modem liberado de Iusacell. con nombre de la red uFi_999999, contraseña wpa - 12345678 y clave de administrador WebGui - admin



if you check files in EFS explorer - you can geek your modem


After an upgrade i got unlocked, and with more new GUI modem


All this things we do with EFS Explorer is to cheat ZTE Firmware updater, otherwise it will not upgrade firmware as is restricted by carrier:)


CONFIGS (Если что-то сломалось / Si no sirve puedes recouperar / you can restore it if you need)
DOWNOAD / DESCARGAR

ZTEMODEM.ISO

UPDATE

here's one success story :)

====================

I think you just made my day!!
But i don't want to celebrate yet..
Let me describe what happened..
Everything worked fine with the config files and the firmware update tool worked perfect. But in the end i was getting the uFi_999999 wifi but another ufi_BE4108 (which "BE4108" was the id of the my old Conviq wifi).
So as you instructed it i run the tool for another time..
Unfortunately i was getting the same wifi!
I even tried a sim card and of course it was giving me an error "Network locked etc"
While i was running the tool once again I noticed that at around 80/100 when the download phase was completed and the modem was being reset I was getting the uFi_999999 and i even connected to it using 12345678 password, i accessed the interface and everything!
But then and while the tool was "restoring" smt (NV=...) the uFi_999999 disappeared, it got disconnected and the ufi_BE4108 appeared again!
So i run again the tool up to 80/100 and when i saw the ufi_999999 wifi coming up i closed the tool!
It gave me a warning about Datacard being damaged but i pressed OK anyway!
From then the ufi_999999 was still there,i tried a SIM, it picked up the network and the signal and everything seemed to be OK.
Unfortunately i don't have a data plan to see if i can have internet but everything seem to be ok!
What do you think...?


Author: You need to eject your modem when Update tool will start to restore NV. (Im pretty sure you will not brick it hehe and than flash it once again. Password of web interface will be admin, wifi key : 12345678)

  2. When you plug your modem via USB first time - will be detected as a CD, open it and install all drivers from there, if your modem doesn't connect via usb at all, and does not detect - sometimes carrier can lock usb usage (in this case there's nothing to do)

      IT WORKS!!!
      Its so f*cking amazing!!!

    10. Hey man that's a trick not to get scared to brick it :) maybe my english is not so good but the general idea is to disconnect it in NV restore moment and than to falsh it again.

      Well yes. this firmware sets 12345 default password and so on. The only one problem i have is that my modem doesn't connect automatically to 3G i need to enter to Web interface and to push Connect :)

      But i think i found a solution. tehre's in /etc/copy a config file, i think if you play with that file you'll find an option to make it Auto connecting to your APN :)

      Really cool that it works for you! hehe great day

      Delete
    11. Great day indeed! :))) I just assured my internet during my summer holidays!
      I liked my "success story" :p
      Actually I think the password was 12345678..
      I guess i can spare 2-3 clicks to get connected even manually but I will have a look at this.
      Once again thanks!
      Have a nice day!

  23. I bumped into your post as I have been trying to unlock my ZTE-MF60, locked to Etisalat (Nigeria).

    I followed your advise and deleted both files (confg and version) but when I tried updating, the update software says I should check my version and then stopped. What could I have done wrong? I need to use another sim in my device.

    I will appreciate your kind assistance to resolve this. My mail address is dennis.ezekiel.hart@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  24. There is also an option to enter a 16 digit unlock code when I insert another sim into the device. How can one generate that code. is there a software that can resolve that? It will be most helpful to go this route. I will appreciate any assistance in this regard.

  31. Hello!

    Everything worked up to the point where it resets the modem and its searching port communication again. (7/100)
    Then it gives a message saying that smt like "Disconnect the modem and connect it again. Then Press OK and the procedure will resume" but it neves resumes till it gives an error like "Communication failed"
    Any ideas..?
    Do you think there is a way to trick the update tool to avoid the "wrong version" error by changing somehow the files using QPST?
    Thanks!

  32. Buenas! Podriais enviarme los archivos para un Orange España? Gracias cmonopa@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  33. SOLUCIONADO-> Despues de horas de buceo y pruebas varias aki la solución (almenos para el Orange españa):
    1) No hace falta ni el QPS ni ná
    2) Bajad solo el firmware de ZTE mf60 de Brighton (k es libre, pero no libera)
    3) Al momento de pulsar UPDATE, sin miedo, puslad a la vez y sin soltar el boton de apagar de ZTE. Esto hará k el aparato entre en modo download y se ponga a actualizar. Sobra decir, k kuando esté ya haciendo sus cosas, sin k os dé el maldito error de software, ya podeis soltar...
    4) Una vez actualizado, buscad la version con creditos de la DC Unlocker (creo k es la 1.000.4noseké). Poned ZTE modems, luego ZTE Unknown, y unlock.
    5) Disfrutad del Pto modem de los cojines, POR FIN!

    But I must remember for who want to do, or who is still failing, the point is on canceling the tool when restoring NV.
