Hi guys,

Like so many people here, i have also forgotten my phone Lock Code. So today i have decided to reset it anyhow and while playing with my phone K850i - A2 phone, db3150, BINGO, i found the way. May be this should work with all platform phones. But still this has to be confirmed by the owner of different platform phones.

The solution is- look in your FS in this folder. tpa/preset/default now delete this file- 'security_domain_settings'. That's it. Your Phone Lock Code is reset to 0000.

Before deleting you might want to back up that file. Though it is not required. Tested by me.

Pls confirm this method by different platform phone users.

Thank you.

edit: Just found that by deleting this file, it is not recreated. so there might be some functions which will not be able to use if you delete it. But by activating it, it serves the purpose. asking for passward and all. if you give wrong passward, it will not let you access. Do it at your risk.

this means if you forget the passward again, you will not able to retrive it.

edit 2 : By flashing the phone this file is recreated and you will have the same passward as you have set after deleting that file.

In my opnion, just flash your phone after you use the above mentioned method.

What would be the file for the DB2020 phones then?

Posted by mriley
Look what I've found!

Posted by tranced
I knew that already. Was just wondering what the file containing the code was.

Posted by ceaser2008
So this method is working with c901 tested by mriley. Thank you.


Tranced have you checked this folder on your k800 ?

Posted by tranced
@Ceaser2008: centur did check and did not find anything.

@digitalashly

Is c510 A2 phone? If yes, above mentioned method should work. If not, try searching it here at ESATO.

Posted by tranced
Yes, it is A2 DB3210.

Posted by Boysie
Hmm this is interesting.

This must be for A2 platform only. DB20xx codes are in the GDFS area.

Same here.
Anyone know of a solution for this phone?

Posted by Lollylost100
It does not work! Some hoax etc

Before trying it I looked up the contents of security_domain_settings.xml

Link: http://pastebin.com/gQd35Avc

I then tried it, it doesn't work.

The only free way on A2 is use Aerix (for CID52) or pay for Ultimate Unlocker logs (for CID53). Other method is to use SETool3 box.

You may be right as i am not the master of codes. But one thing i know that i have reset my K850i code by this method to 0000. By the way, on which phone did you tried?


Posted by Lollylost100
Tried on W902 which is DB3150 too.

I can reset your phone lock codes and unlock at the same time. Just drop me a pm.

I tried this trick twice as instructed by you on my K850i DB3150 but it did not work any other option?

This so called "trick" does not work on any A2 phone. The only way to reset that code is with paid tools i.e Omnius/D-UU/Davinci etc.


Posted by ceaser2008
Boysie, i dont know how but it has worked for me.

Dreamguy, have you restarted your phone after deleting that file? If it has worked on my K850i, it should work on yours as well.

Bull****

This is complete rubbish and the topic should be closed.

Not good for the modding community.

Yes may be you are right boysie the topic must be locked or deleted.

I thought i have found a way as I have reseted my phone lock code. But this method has never worked for anyone else. I think i had a sheer luck with that.

Mods, pls feel free to lock or delete this thread.
