Exclamation WARNING! How to prevent blocking of SEtool TOP cards (sn from 177500 and above)

WARNING !!!

As there is too much "blocked" setool2 GEMALTO TOP cards,we investigated issue and found problem.

due to errors in controller firmware
( or due to incompatibility between smartcard/controller firmware/motherboard usb controller )
all smartcard readers i know, which are based on CY7C63001 are failed to send long data packet to/from smartcard.
it happens on some systems only, it can happen not immediately, but on "affected" system it happens always, earlier or later.

due to that, smartcard will receive WRONG command and SETOOL2 WILL BE "BLOCKED".
THAT IS NOT RELATED TO "BLOCKED CARDMANAGER" ISSUE ( ERROR #6982 )

i can not find ANY solution to that problem, other than NOT using Cypress CY7C63001-based readers with setool2 cards.


here is few pictures of AFFECTED readers:


you can also identify such reader by smartcard reader name and driver name:


if you will use that readers, your setool2 smartcard WILL BE BLOCKED - and i will unblock such card ONLY ONCE.

my strong recommendation is use om****y-based readers, like that:

they are working 100% on any system.


of course, usage of latest setool2 version is ABSOLUTE requirement.

SETOOL v1.12 HOT UPDATE RELEASED

v1.12

Quote:

- 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 change 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 imei 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 change imei when unlocking )

cost of imei change 5 credits, please take in mind, that if you change 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

Arrow Setool Latest Update Released v1.1201

Setool Latest Update Released v1.1201

Code:
-  resurrection procedure will now work for totally erased s1 qualcomm-based phones
   FAQ now have  resurrection procedure example.

-  forgot to post, that starting from v1.12 setool2 will check for faulty cypress-based reader and refuse to run,  
   if setool2 smartcard installed in such reader. 
   There is no any workaround. 
   Use om****y-based reader or other normal reader.

extremely important message !!!

seems most of lately produced msm7227-based phones have chipset with FIXED security hole, which used to altbypass unlock.
( that is not 100% confirmed, we only have few reports, however better be warned )
such phones will DIE after successful unlock procedure.
such dead phones CAN NOT be recovered. ( perhaps, jtag can fix that, perhaps, qualcomm fixed jtag security hole too )

there is NO WAY to determine if phone has fixed chipset or chipset with security hole.

the ONLY safe way is to use unlock by resurrection cables.
if phone can be connected and booted by resurrection cables, phone is safe to unlock.
if phone can not be booted by resurrection cables, phone has fixed chipset and could not be unlocked.

you have been warned.
get and use resurrection cables.
update:

Code:
  e16 phone with manufacture date 11w38 affected, i think we should care about phones which produced after 11w26

Thumbs up Setool v1.1280 Released....

v1.1280

Code:
- fixed m1_aspen flashing
- fixed flashing of ICS firmwares for 8x55 phones
- removed java-based altbypass method for all a1 phones,except pnx5230-based phones.
- reset-based unlock method is now standard altbypass unlock method for a1 phones.
  you can not use usb as interface for altbypass unlock on db2000,db2010-based phones anymore.
  you do not need restoration files,bypass files ( still need them for pnx5230-based phone ).
  and ... altbypass unlock is much quicker and quite "one-buttoned" now ;)
- added x1 unlock via codes, all you need  -  enter IMEI on locks tab and press "request". Cost is 1 credit.
due to major core rewrite, some bugs can appear in a1 phone service patterns, despite i checked all supported phones in different modes.
if you will find problems, feel free to report them on forum.

Thumbs up v1.1280 Fixed

DB2020 Brown Phones Support Was Broken By Accident.
Please Use that quickfix.

Please note, that there NO NEED to use RESET operation for unlock anymore - use it ONLY when GDFS area totally trashed.
for any A1 unlock cases, just check signed mode +altbypass and press unlock/repair.
