did you try flashing the xt701 firmware on it? The specs of both phones are similar enough that it might work.

Default Flashing the XT701 firmware

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. NO I ahve not done this yet. Can you recommend a suotable firmware version for the XT701?

and also, what do you thionk is the risk/chance of bricking this phone?

The south Korean SKTelecom has really locked down this phone. I ahd an argumanet over several emails that should supply me with the unlock procedure xonsidering I bought it outright and their sales staff said it would work with my non-korean SIM.

Default No luck yet

I have not had any luck with this just yet. I am still looking. I could not find the XT701 firmware but I did find this site:

https://opensource.motorola.com/sf/projects/xt720

But I am unsure iof this is the firmware needed to unlock/root the phone.

Lets keep on looking and asking !!!!

HI Noose475,

With the release of the unlocked version in Germany and UK this month I am hoping to get an update that I can use to unlock the Korean version.

How have you been going to find an unlock (update.zip) file?

I actually bought one of theose Unlock code generator codes from an unlock service but it didnt work becaus ethe Korean verison blocks this functionality.

Any ideas?

hey Leeman,

I'm more of a newbie on this whole unlocking business. Been looking around and researching when I have time. I recently had to visit the motorla center here in korea to get my motoroi right. the tech said my phone had a virus,,,was a bit of a shocker.

I'm trying to overclock my phone,,,and so far it seems to need a rooting process in order to do so.

I will post on anything I discover.

just out of curioustiy,,,do you know about the power off. when you power on holding down the button next to the camera causes the phone to go into the yellow triangle on the screen. from there either the up volume (more likely) or the volume down button simutaniously with the camer button puts you into a reboot stage. it takes a few try's for the second part. this is the same thing as going into "settings" into "privacy" and "factory data reset" BUT there are OTHER OPTIONS listed if you do the whole button thing. you might want to check out. don't forget to back up your phone's info and stuff. i did the button thing twice after watching the korean motorola tech guy do it.

leemen,
currently going to be relocating to another city here in korea,,,think i might try to make some friends in the motorola tech department in the next city to see if i could get some useful info from them. i let you know if i find anything. if they are cool enough,,,i'll also ask them about your unblocking situation as well.

for now lets keep looking and i'll try to get some info after my move.

Default Ublocking

Helo Noose,

Thanks for the info, yes I know about the reset to factory settings functionality, it is the same for other Motorla phones.

Bascially the phone is locked down to SKTelecom. The only way around this is to source a new update.zip file that will root the phone and remove the SKTelecom country lock.

The functionality is avaialble and some bright sparks in Korea should have this, maybe an sales agent for SKTelecom.

As mentioned, the phone is being released in Europe shortly and I am hoping to source the correct update.zip or SBF files from there.

Keep in touch.

Sorry for the beginner questions, this phone's my first exposure to Android..

Rooting your phone means you have a privilege to edit system files. just like jailbreak on iphone, it you can do almost anything you want on your phone. But! very very risky, so be careful

Hi

I unlocked my korean motoroi which i purchased in south korea ( SKT ).

You can look at the below procedure. Once you flash the EU rom the unlock code pop up will come.

You can purchase 16-digit unlock code on internet and then enter it. The phone wll get unlocked.

FLASHING PHONE USING EUROPE ROM


DOWNLOAD THIS FILE

http://dext3r.komodin.org/xt720/xt720v13.ZIP


instructions:

A: users with stock 2.1 can proceed to step 1 in instructions.
B: users with stock SBF korean 2.2 rom , need to flash stock 2.1 and goto step 1
C: Users with previous release of my beta with OpenRecovery you should just do Factory Reset, and a restore of the new nandroid backup included in the download link, and goto step 8.

STEP 1-9

1. root it (SuperOneClick ) - included with zip
2. install OpenRecovery , use included apk.
3. reboot phone once
4. copy the folder "nandroid" to root directory of your sdcard.
5. Make sure sdcard is not attached to pc using "mass storage share" to pc.
6. Run OpenRecovery app and "install Recovery".
7. Press Boot recovery
8. restore the backup "stock221"
9. wipe / factory reset in OpenRecovery
9. reboot


But after flashing this EU rom on Korean motoroi Auto rotation feature, FM radio not working any more.

I want to know if i flash back the Korean stock rom on the phone after unlocking will it bring back the lock?
