3. This software package: Motorola MPx200 SIM unlock kit (5.25MB).
4. Pre-steps: Extract contents of downloaded ZIP file to any folder. In the examples below it assumes you extract to C: \ Mpx200Unlock.

High Level Overview:

1. Install MPX200 modem driver
2. Copy 256k block to a RAW data file (256k block contains phones IMEI which needs to remain intact to maintain Legality)
3. Unlock 256k block to a new RAW file (yet maintaining ever important IMEI)
4. Convert raw file to BIN file

6. Install Motorola upgrades unlocked and upload the IMG file to your phone

step-by-step procedure :

1. Install MPX200 modem driver

a. Power off the phone.

b. Hold the left direction key and hold it, do not release.

c. Plug in the USB cable. When you plug in the USB cable, if you watch very carefully, you may see a slight REALLY flash on the phone screen. You may even hear your computer "ding" with the "new hardware" sound.

d. Release the left arrow key.

e. Windows will pop up a new hardware device wizard window
Click "No, not at this time" and click Next

f. Click on "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and click "Next"

g. Make sure only the "Include this location ..." is checked and enter the path where you extracted the zip file to. The path entered here must contain the smartfon.inf file. Click "Next"

h. When the "Hardware Installation" window comes up, click "Continue Anyway"

i. Click Finish to close the wizard.

2. Copy 256k block to a RAW data file

a. Open MPX200_Backup.exe (found in the folder you extracted the zip to.)

b. Make sure of 3 things: (1) Select "256kb" (2) Select "RAW" (3) Type in or browse to where you want your backup to be made. I recommend leaving it in C: \ oldsim.raw for the sake of simplicity. After doing those three steps, click (4) the top button on the right.

c. When it's finished, you'll get a bunch of garbage on a message, just click OK.

You can close the MPX200_Backup program (using the X), you're done with it for now.

3. Unlock 256k block to a new RAW file (yet maintaining ever important IMEI)

a. Open the windows command prompt. (From Start / Run type in "cmd" and click OK)

b. Type in the following commands (Note, this assumes unzip folder was c:\mpx200unlock, and the location of your RAW file is c:\oldsim.raw, you can change accordingly):

Cd c:\mpx200unlock

FixIMEI.exe c:\oldsim.raw c:\newsim.raw

4. Convert raw file to BIN file

a. Still in Command Prompt mode (and still in the c: \ directory mpx200unlock)

Raw2bin.exe c: \ newsim.raw c: \ newsim.bin

Steps 3 and 4 should look like this:

(You can type "exit" and the enter key to close the window)

5. Convert BIN file to IMG file

a. MPX200_Backup.exe Open the program again, and click on the BIN-> IMG button. The rest of the settings do not matter.

b. A new window will pop up, select the newsim.bin file and click "Open"

c. Another window will pop up, in this window type in the file name "newsim.img" and click "Save"

d. A message will pop up when conversion is complete, just click OK.

Now you can close the MPX200_Backup program, you're finished with it.

6. Install Motorola upgrades unlocked and upload the IMG file to your phone

a. Double click on the "Motorola_Mobile_Upgrade_Wizard_V1.3.0_setup.e xe" file to run setup.
Note: You must install with v.1.3.0, I have tried with newer versions and it does not work. Only the newer version is available for download on the Motorola site, that's why I included it in the zip.

b. Proceed with the setup, this part should be pretty simple. Use all of the default values and keep clicking "Next" until it's finished. When this is installed, click on the "Motorola Mobile Upgrade Wizard" shortcut found on your desktop or your start menu.

c. Click "Next" three times. Do not worry about any on-screen instructions, if you have made it this far, then your phone is already plugged in properly and that's all the instructions tell you to do.

d. You should now be on Step 4. Click Browse. Select "newsim.img" and click "Open" and then click "Next"

e. The status bar will move across the screen and then take you to this next screen. Just click "Finish"

Turn your phone on. If your phone does not turn on it may be stuck in "Modem Mode" so Unplug it from the computer and remove / replace the battery and then turn the phone on. Make sure you have the new SIM card in place.
