In this article, I will explain how to unlock your LG Cookie KP500 phone. So what is the advantage of unlocking your LG Cookie? Well, basically it will allow you to use your phone with any service provider. This will work with the LG KP500 because it is a quad band capable phone.
Alright, let’s get started with the tutorial. First note, I got the original steps from this website.
How To Unlock the LG Cookie KP500
First, Download “LG-Utils KS360 KP500 FR-EN Version 0.4.0″ from this website.
Second, Turn the phone off, connect it to your computer. The computer must install many drivers if it is the first time you connect the phone when it is off. Then, when the drivers are installed, disconnect the phone, but don’t turn it on!
Third, Extract Custom Files From The Firmware! Follow the tutorial. You have next to the file V10D.wdb an other file called slb_large_block_16_bit_paging.flb . Rename it: KP500.flb (don’t forget the .flb !!) . Paste KP500.flb on C:.
Fourth, get the STATIC_EEP partition. ThendDecompress the archive LG-Utils. Launch the program “KP500-Utils-EN”. Write N and press Entry. Write then \.USB1 then Entry. The program ask for the file sec-pack. it is the file we have renamed and copied-pasted. So write, if you have followed step by step the tutorial: C:KP500.flb. Then, for “Data file”, write : STATIC_EEP. Prepare you to connect the phone who is off. Press Entry, and connect it as fast as possible to your computer. You have this. If you don’t, make again steps 3 as well as 4. Go then in the folder of the program. There are 2 new files, a file STATIC_EEP (little file, 80Ko?) and a file STATIC_EEP.big which is bigger. Remove the file STATIC_EEP.big (it is the file STATIC_EEP with falses entries). Copy-Paste the file STATIC_EEP in C:, next to KP500.flb.
Fifth, In the program’s menu, write O. For “source file”, write C:STATIC_EEP . (you have pasted it next to KP500.flb)
An unlock code appears. Write it on a sheet of paper, and CLOSE THE PROGRAM, DON’T PRESS ANY KEY. THIS CODE IS PERSONNAL.
Disconnect the phone and turn it on. Write the nummer 2945#*71001#. A menu appears. Press “Unlock SIM” and then “Network Lock”. Give the code you got. The phone reboots, and it is now unlocked!
