Flashing/unlocking Tracfone W175g
While down in NYC, I got a Trac W175 which I'd eventually like to use with a Canadian GSM carrier.
I've heard Tracfone's crappy firmware would cause problems even if I managed to unlock my W175 and use it with another provider - something to do with Trac's minute tracker or some such.
Anyway, seeing as the W175 has a standard mini-USB connector, my MP3 player's cable has been recycled into a USB cable for the W175.
After some tweaking, I got the W175 working on my XP comp, and when connected, the phone shows up as "Motorola Flash Interface", which from what I read, is the way it's supposed to be.
All that's left to do is to replace Trac's firmware, and crack the SIM lock. I know, I know, the marketplace has plenty of reliable places where I could get the SIM lock cracked, but it sounds a bit pointless to pay for something I can do myself, does it?
So, if anyone happens to have a copy of some generic GSM Moto firmware and tools to crack the SIM lock and cares to share it with me, as well as point me in the right direction to succesfully see the operation through, I'd love to hear from ya. Via PM, please.
Tracfone W175g is IMPOSSIBLE to flash. If you don't want to use it with Trac, it's WORTHLESS. Stop PM'ing me!
