Unlocking Your Blackjack

blackjack

Before you can optimize and configure your Blackjack to run at optimal speeds you must first app unlock the thing. App unlocking means you can run unsigned 3rd party software on your Blackjack. If you don’t application unlock it’s security settings, any changes you make that is registry based, will not be saved.

NEW: Please note this not a SIM Card Unlock, this is an Application Unlock. Please read the post “Unlocking the Blackjack SIM Card” to learn how to do this.

Here is the easy steps:

  1. Download and install Device Security Manager Powertoy for Windows Mobile 5.0 from Microsoft. This is a nifty utility to show what security policy is in effect. If you connect your Blackjack to your PC, you’ll see two tier security policy is in effect.

  2. Download and copy secpolicies.cab to your Blackjack using ActiveSync. I got this from sems.org who got it from Telus support, after following a post on qusers.com.

  3. Run and install it. This allows you to install third party SSL Root Certs.

  4. If you run Device Security Manager Powertoy for Windows Mobile 5.0 now (it is listed in Start – Programs as “Security Configuration Manager”, you’ll see now you are using One Tier Prompt. Select Security Off and click Provision. It will install tool.cab to your device and then provision the settings.

These instructions are based on the ones found for the Motorola Q provided by sem.org.

    Help with Vista! Have downloaded WM6.0. Do you have a fix for this? TONS of photos are on my phone, but I cannot delete them. AT&T Support is stumped.

    • Fab August 7, 2010, 9:55 pm

      You should be careful about giving the imei of your phone. It can be used to clone your phone.

      I don’t have the program, but if you google it you will find the program that uses the imei to create the unlocking code. I have seen some people providing the download for free.

    • Anonymous January 15, 2011, 4:13 am

  • Zandra Ross-Williams May 15, 2010, 10:04 pm

    I need help,
    I re formatted my black jack SGH-i607 twice and reset it, so everything is wiped clean, I got a new SIM card for AT&T pay as you go account, but when I put the SIM card into the black jack it keeps saying this:
    This phone can only be used with a specific SIM. Enter the unlock code or insert an approved SIM. I already went to the Network Control key screen and typed my 8 digit unlock code to unlock the phone with. it worked but whenever I put the sim card in, it goes to a screen that says the same thing. And every pin code i know won’t work on it, I re-entered the unlock code but it says invalid password. What does that mean???? Help!!! And I already called an AT&T phone line and they gave me the unlock code. So it should have worked.

    • Fab August 7, 2010, 10:00 pm

      From what I read in the net, the phone gets stuck if you try the wrong unlocking code a certain amount of times. After that, to unlock it you will need to take to a specialist who will use cables to donwload stuff in your phone so that it can be unlocked.

    • Jen October 5, 2010, 4:37 pm

      I have the same problem. My phone is unlocked and I changed sim cards and goes to that same screen, to unlock sim card and says invalid password. did you ever find out how to fix it? I heard it doesnt work on prepaid cards.

      • Anonymous September 16, 2011, 5:27 pm

        im pretty sure when u input the unlock it code it has to have a different aervice providers sim card in it or not one at all

  • prashanna July 21, 2010, 4:57 am

    its quite nice trick to unlock, but i prefer using the better option like buying the Unlocked code as its more reliable and permanent .I use http://mobileunlockingcode.com for my mobile unlocks.

  • brian August 18, 2010, 3:54 pm

    Help!!!! I cannot unlock the Jack(sgh-i637) Using the same instructions as posted. Security configuration manager keeps saying locked and wont change.

  • Mike Smith November 14, 2010, 1:35 am

    How can I use the Microsoft Security Configuration Manager to unlock my Samsung Blackjack 2 cell phone so that I can install third party applications?
    Whenever I launch the Security Configuration Manager program and change the Selected Configuration from Locked to Security Off, I get a message that says “Sign the CPF required for communication” (see the screenshot).

    What do I need to do so that I can turn the security off on my Samsung Blackjack 2 cell phone?

    Do I need to download and install one of the SPC certificates shown in the list? If so, which one do I need to download and install?

    I need to be able to turn the Security off on my Samsung Blackjack 2 cell phone so that I will be able to install unsigned third party applications that will then allow me to “tether” Windows 7 laptop computer with my Samsung Blackjack 2 cell phone so that I can use the Samsung Blackjack 2 cell phone as a “modem” to establish an internet connection.

    Please tell me what I need to do.

    I am following the instructions that I have gotten from this website: http://www.corynielsen.com/modifications-and-hacks/unlocking-your-blackjack
