How to SIM unlock Walmart Family Mobile phones – HTC Desire 626s Android – S-OFF not needed

HTC Desire 626s Walmart Family Mobile SIM unlockI’ve unlocked a number of Walmart Family Mobile (powered by T-Mobile) HTC Desire 626s phones and the procedure, information, download links and files for unlocking are provided below.

Before we start I want to first make the following acknowledgements:

  •  HTC Desire 626s was released about a year ago (i.e., late summer 2015)
  •  HTC Desire 626s is a budget smartphone (but somewhat cool looking and the red/salmon & grey colors probably helps aesthetically)
  •  The SIM unlocking information provided below is applicable to other HTC models (not just the HTC Desire 626s) as well as HTC phones from other carriers (not just Walmart Family Mobile)

Today I’m working on unlocking another HTC Desire 626s which I’ll later be mailing to the person who requested who requested the phone and the unlock.

This will probably be the last HTC Desire 626s that I work on and I’ve decided to write and publish some tutorial-like information for unlocking this Walmart phone which includes, though is not limited to, the procedure for SIM unlocking which doesn’t require S-OFF for HTC.

Step one

On your your desktop or laptop you’ll need to go to this link: Android Studio – The Official IDE for Android

On that same page scroll down until you see the following platform download options:

android studio sdk for windowsDownload the zip (or tgz for Linux). Do not download the exe file.

Step two

Open the zip (or the tgz for Linux), extract the contents and look for SDK Manager.

Run the application (SDK Manager).

When the Android SDK Manager opens in a new window select only Android SDK Platform tools and then click install package.

A new folder titled platform-tools should show up in the first window.  Drag this folder out and place it in a location (e.g., desktop) where you’ll be able to easily locate it. You may also rename the folder (e.g., htc-sim-unlock).

Open that same folder and position your cursor anywhere inside and then hold the shift button and then right click.  Then select Open command window here.

A command prompt window should open –

adb android debug bridge command prompt window sim unlock

If you’d like a list of ADB (Android Debug Bridge) commands just type in adb and then hit enter.  However, you shouldn’t really need most these commands.

Step three

Power on your HTC phone (remove SIM card). If it’s brand new you may have to go through some initial setup.

After your HTC phone is powered on (and perhaps some basic setup) go to –

Settings / About / Software information / More / Build number

Now tap on Build number several times until its says that you are now a developer.

Now proceed to –

Settings / Developer options / USB debugging

Click the checkbox to allow USB debugging.

Now proceed to –

Settings / Developer options / OEM unlocking

Click the checkbox to allow bootloader to be unlocked.

Step four

Connect your HTC Android phone to your computer with USB cable.

In the command prompt window type in adb devices and then hit enter.

Your phone should show up (HTCserialnumber) followed by the word device.  If its says unauthorized then you’ve most likely done something incorrect in Step three (don’t worry, just verify your work and if everything was correct then conduct some of your own troubleshooting).

In the command prompt window now type in adb reboot bootloader and hit enter.

Your HTC Android phone should now reboot into Boatloader Mode –

android bootloader mode sim unlock

In the command prompt window now type in fastboot devices and hit enter.

Your phone should show up (HTCserialnumber) followed by the word fastboot.

Note that in the picture about the device is LOCKED and S-ON.

Also note that there is not a FASTBOOT mode listed.

We wont need FASTBOOT Mode (we’ll use Download Mode for the HTC Desire 626s) but we will use Fastboot commands.

It should also be noted that we wont need S-OFF to unlock the SIM (carrier unlock).

Step five

If you haven’t already registered with HTCdev.com you’ll need to do so now. Don’t worry, it’s free and you can use the tools there as often as you like –htcdev.com SIM unlockNow login to HTCdev.com and –

      a. Click on Developer Center

      b. Click get started under Unlock Bootloader

      c.  In the drop down menu (Select Your Device) under Supported Devices you can scroll to the very bottom bottom and select All Other Supported Models or if you like you can try to find your specific model.

      d. Click the Begin Unlock Bootloader

      e. Proceed to Unlock Instructions

Now in the command prompt window (you should still be in Bootloader Mode) type in fastboot oem get_identifier_token

Hit enter.

If you get a message indicating an unknown command then switch into Download Mode (Boot To Download Mode on your phone… look at one of the pictures above if you need help).  Now try it again – fastboot oem get_identifier_token

One of the two modes will work (for HTC Desire 626s you’ll probably need to be in Download Mode).

At this point you should be seeing an Identifier Token in the command prompt window that looks similar (yours wont be all zeros) to the following –

(bootloader) <<<< Identifier Token Start >>>>
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) 00000000000000000000000000000000
(bootloader) <<<<< Identifier Token End >>>>>

Now got to page 2 of the unlock instructions (HTCdev.com website) and scroll down on that page until you see an area where you can paste in My Device Identifier Token.

Copy (or right click, Mark and then highlight) your token from the command prompt window and paste it into the area on the unlock instructions page at HTCdev.com

However, first you’ll need to delete all of the “(boatloader)” from the beginning of each line. The token above should be trimmed to look similar to the following example (yours wont be all zeros) –

<<<< Identifier Token Start >>>>
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
00000000000000000000000000000000
<<<<< Identifier Token End >>>>>

If you’ve done everything correct you should be receiving an email (typically takes just a minute or so to arrive) from HTCdev.com which contains your unlock key –

htcdev unlock key sim unlockThe email should contain a .bin file attachment which you can download.

You can place this file in your platform-tools folder (or any other name that you may have renamed it to, I renamed mine as htc-sim-unlock) to make things simple. However, you can save the .bin file anywhere you want just as long as you can remember the path to that folder.

In the command prompt window (with your phone in Download Mode or in Boatload Mode for other HTC models) type in fastboot flash unlocktoken followed by the path to your .bin file

If you’ve saved the .bin file within your platform-tools folder you can type in fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin

Hit enter.

If you’ve done everything correct and the unlock token has completed flashing you should see the following screen on your HTC Android phone –

android sim unlock adb flash token unlock sim

Push volume up for YES and then the power button to continue.

Step six

Your phone should be rebooting by itself now.  If not just power it back on manually.

Congrats! Your phone (i.e., your phone’s bootloader) should now be unlocked!

To verify this (and also in order to continue on to SIM unlocking) you’ll need to repeat Step three (i.e., tap Build Number several times to become a developer, check USB debugging and check OEM unlocking).

Now on your computer in the command prompt window (open it again if you’ve closed it) (with your phone connect by USB) type in adb reboot bootloader

Hit enter.

After your phone reboots into bootloader you should see that you are now UNLOCKED –

 HTC android bootloader unlocked sim unlock s on

Note that under UNLOCKED we still have S-ON.  Don’t worry, as stated somewhere in the foregoing we wont need S-OFF for SIM unlocking (i.e., carrier unlock).

Now we need a custom mod or a mod recovery. At the CyanogenMod.org site you can download them for many devices that run on Android.  You may browse through the list of HTC models and pick one that you prefer.

I don’t know whether or not there really is a specific mod build or mod recovery for the HTC Desire 626s but I have one that will work (it might have been for the HTC One, I can’t remember now and I renamed the file several months ago) that you can download and use:

http://justinbailey.info/download-files/cyanogenmod-htc-626s-android.img

After you’ve download the file provide directly above (or after downloading another custom rom from CyanogenMod.org) you’ll need to save the file to your platform-tools folder (or whatever name you’ve given it) or anywhere else just as long as you can remember the path to the file.

Now type the following into the command prompt window on your computer (in Download Mode or Bootloader Mode for other HTC models) – fastboot flash recovery followed by the path to your custom mod file

If you’ve saved the mod .img file within your platform-tools folder you can type in fastboot flash recovery cyanogenmod-htc-626s-android.img

Hit enter.

If you’ve done everything correct you should see something like the following screen on your phone –

cyanogenmod custom mod recovery HTC android flash adb command prompt window

Hit the power button and the flashing of the custom mod will be completed.

Now reboot your phone.

After your phone reboots you need to go back into Bootloader mode so type the following into the command prompt window on your computer – adb reboot bootloader

If there’s a problem or the phone isn’t showing up in command prompt window then repeat Step three (i.e., tap Build Number several times to become a developer, check USB debugging and check OEM unlocking).

When your phone is back in Bootloader mode then select BOOT TO RECOVERY MODE and verify (just to makw sure) that you see the something like the following screen –

cyanogen recovery system mod android 2016

Congrats! You’ve successfully flashed the CyanogenMod Recovery image!

Now select Reboot system now and then press the power button.

Step seven

You are nearly finished, everything is downhill from here!

You’ll need the latest version of SuperSu and you can easily pick that up at the following link –

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1538053

As of today’s date (August 27, 2016) the version listed at the above link is [STABLE][2016.07.05] SuperSU v2.76

On that page do not download from the Google Play Store link.

You need to download the zip file which can be flashed to your phone.

You’ll probably see three zip files –

  1. stable version
  2. beta version
  3. latest version

I’m using the stable.

At this point your phone should be powered on (and not in the Bootloader) and connected with USB.

On your computer look for your HTC Desire 626s.  Open it and go into the phone’s internal storage –

HTC internal storage

Now drag (or paste) the SuperSU zip file (from wherever you have that saved on your computer) into your phone’s internal storage –

HTC internal storage supersu

 

Now in the command prompt window type in – adb reboot bootloader

Hit enter.

On your phone’s screen (now in Bootloader) select BOOT TO RECOVERY MODE.

You should see the Cyanogen Recovery screen now.

Select – Apply update and press power.

Select – Choose from internal storage and press power.

Select – 0/ and press power

Select UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.76-20160630161323.zip and press power.

Android should be updating now for a few seconds.

Select – Reboot system now and press power.

Step eight

Behold! The final steps are upon us.

Make sure that your HTC phone is powered on (and not in bootloader mode) and connected with USB.

You’ll also now need to have a Micro SD Memory Card inserted into your phone.

In the command prompt window on your computer type in adb devices to verify that your phone shows up.  It should, but if it doesn’t it’s likely just some some small error – just troubleshoot and review this article again.

All that you are doing now in this last step is pulling out a SIM-locking (or carrier locking) file in your phone and pushing in a new SIM-unlock (or carrier unlock).

The name of the file that needs to be removed is mmcblk0p36

With the following four (4) adb commands you’ll be:

  1.  renaming the file that you need to pull out of the phone
  2.  pulling out that renamed file
  3.  pushing in a new file
  4.  renaming that new file to the original name of the file that needed to pulled out

You’ll need the new file first and you can download it right here at our site with this link –

http://justinbailey.info/download-files/mmcblk0p36-rfg_8-UnLocked.txt

Save that file in your platform-tools folder (or whatever you may have renamed the folder as).

Now in your command prompt window on your computer type in –

adb shell
shell@htc_a32eul:/ $ su
root@htc_a32eul:/ # dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p36 of=/sdcard2/mmcblk0p36old

..(some data appears here)

..(some data appears here)

..(some data appears here)

root@htc_a32eul:/ # exit
shell@htc_a32eul:/ $ exit

If you got stuck on the 3rd line (root@htc_a32eul) it’s because SuperSu is asking you to grant ADB Shell full access to your phone.  You may have missed the request, which only stays popped up on your phone’s screen for a number of seconds, while you were looking at the command prompt window on your computer –

abd shell super su android debugging bridge sim unlock

 

Be sure to grant the request (and if you need the request to pop up again just type in adb shell and su again).

After you get all of the above settled then type in –

adb pull /sdcard2/mmcblk0p36old
..(some data appears here)

Then type in –

adb push mmcblk0p36-rfg_8-UnLocked.txt /sdcard2/mmcblk0p36new

..(some data appears here)

Then type in –

adb shell
shell@htc_a32eul:/ $ su
root@htc_a32eul:/ # dd if=/sdcard2/mmcblk0p36new of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p36
..(some data appears here)
..(some data appears here)
..(some data appears here)
root@htc_a32eul:/ # exit
shell@htc_a32eul:/ $ exit

Step nine

Insert your SIM card and restart phone.

Success!

You’ve SIM-unlocked your phone!

Enjoy!

  • In Step four after you type adb devices into the Command Prompt window if you get a device offline then just check your phone’s screen… you’ll probably see a request asking if you are sure that you want to Allow USB debugging? and some additional information regarding RSA key fingerprint.

    Make sure to allow it and then tap Ok.

    If you didn’t see a request to grant permission on your phone’s screen then type adb kill-server into the Command Prompt window on your computer and then hit enter.

    Now proceed with the tutorial (i.e., type in adb devices to verify that your HTC shows up as a device and not unauthorized and not offline).

  • Received a request yesterday to help SIM unlock a Virgin Mobile (Sprint) HTC Desire 626s (4G LTE).

    The phone was delivered to me –

    virgin mobile sprint 4g lte sim unlock root

    good news… was able to unlock the bootloader and root the phone

    bad news… wasn’t able to successfully flash Cyangenmod recovery. Also tried to flash a ClockworkMod recovery and that wasn’t successful either.

    However, was able to successfully flash a TWRP (TeamWin Recovery Project) mod recovery –

    virgin mobile HTC desire 626s sprint 4g lte sim unlock twrp recovery flash

    virgin mobile HTC desire 626s sprint 4g lte sim unlock twrp mod recovery flash

    You can download it right here at our site with this link – http://justinbailey.info/download-files/twrp-htc-626s-android.img

    (Or you can visit twrp.me and download different versions from selection)

    ugly newsStep eight (pulling out a SIM-locking (or carrier locking) file in your phone and pushing in a new SIM-unlock (or carrier unlock)) is not effective. Everything appears to have worked as intended but phone is still carrier-locked. After inserting SIM card into phone the following message appears –

    SIMLock enabled
    4G LTE/GSM will not work as SIMlock is enabled

  • What could be the reason why it didn’t work? I have an HTC desire 626s locked to Sprint and about to try this procedure. Does it mean there are no guarantees it will work? If so, what other options are available?

  • @ Em Dee:

    With the information in the tutorial you’ll still be able to unlock the your phone’s bootloader and also root your phone. (Note: Since you have a Sprint phone please also pay close attention to comment #2).

    I believe that the problem with SIM-unlocking (or carrier unlocking) for the Sprint version of the HTC Desire 626s is that we need to modify the radio files. I was working on this but I haven’t had a lot of free time this week and just yesterday the owner of the Sprint phone requested that I return it to them (and I did so last night) so I can’t continue now (because I don’t have another Sprint phone).

    Moreover, I also believe that you may not necessarily need to manually edit, delete or swap the radio files but rather just get your Sprint HTC’s MSL number (i.e., Master Subsidy Lock number).

    In the past it was relatively easy to ascertain the MSL number with adb (in command prompt window) by typing in getprop ril.MSL and hitting enter.

    It doesn’t appear to work anymore or at least not on HTC Desire or maybe not on the newer versions of Android.

    There are also apps like MSL Reader which were written to work on Sprint phones… but it wont work on HTC phones.

    There are also a number of apps specifically written for SIM-unlocking the HTC ONE but none for the HTC Desire. Some are APK files – Android application package – that you wont find of Google Play Store (google search for them) but will install just like a regular app after you download the apk file to your phone (they can also sometimes be flashed in download mode in bootloader or installed in recovery mode).

    At any rate, if you can ascertain your phone Sprint HTC’s MSL number (you might even give Sprint a call and just ask them for the MSL number) then you may proceed to dialing ##3282# on your phone itself and then select EDIT (if that doesn’t work then start over and try dialing ##3424#) and then there are likely some settings that you can change which are related to the sim or carrier or radio.

    For more help I’d recommend contacting this person –

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/10empKieQE76bsnxLbEKO9htLCNgnutR3yUSBvrV0hwA/edit

    Ps- please let me know if you are successful in sim-unlocking your HTC and also if you have any other questions. Thanks!

  • hi
    i like what you did and it does help i have a htc 626s i unlocked the bootloader but the sim lock didnt my phone is sim locked to metro pcs still which sucks. can you help???

  • Hi, thanks for your reply and sorry for replying so late ( been having a hard time with this device). Luckily for me, I was able to unlock my sprint 626s and got my msl. I followed a guide on XDA on unlocking sprint M9 and it worked for my 626s. Can’t really recall but I think I also got the tutorial on how to get my msl from the same guide using a computer software called basic flasher (download link also included in the guide), I hope you can find the link but if not, I’m willing to get it for you. However, despite unlocking the device, I can only access 2G and not 3G in my country. I thought the issue had to do with bands and I flashed bands compatible with my country yet whenever I change my network mode to 3G, I lose service. Is there anything I can do to access 3G. Thanks

    @ keegan:

    Hi thanks for commenting. I will see if I can find regarding SIM-unlock for Metro PCS and then post that information in another comment.

    What I can tell you right at that moment is that you’ll probably need ascertain the MSL number of your phone.

    @ Em Dee:

    That’s excellent news that you were able to unlock your Sprint version and also ascertain your MSL!

    Is this the XDA guide that you used and which contained Basic Flasher? http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2394499

    Please let me know if it is. And if it’s not can you please post a link for us? Thanks

    Now regarding accessing 3G network I’m not exactly sure. I know people who sometimes have similar problems in the in places like the Caribbean when using an unlocked Verizon and AT&T phones which I sent to them from the USA.

    If you switch to a different carrier you may be able to run on 3G.

    What carrier are you using now? This may help in finding a solution.

  • I’m from Nigeria and I’ve tried all the carriers here without any success. Someoneon the 626s sprint forum stated that sprint may hav band masked the 3G band of my country ( although I know nothing about band masking). As for the link, here it is http://forum.xda-developers.com/sprint-one-m9/general/nv-unlock-sim-t3314755

    @ Em Dee:

    Thank you very much for the XDA link!

    I’m sorry to read that you haven’t had 3G success with any of the carriers in Nigeria. I’m not familiar with band masking either.

    My plan now is to gather information about band masking and then I’ll publish a report it. I will also try to include information regarding 3G and Nigeria.

    Btw, I’m also interested in learning more about Nigeria. I’m an American but I’ve always loved learning about people and culture in Africa, especially in places like the Congo.

  • Wow, that’s great. Feel free to consult me on any information you need on Nigeria and Africa relatively

  • Thank you! It worked!
    I would just add an issue, while trying to use fastboot in Download mode, where the phone wasn’t recognized.. until I could trace the issue to missing or non-working drivers.

    I searched and finally got updated HTC drivers from the following link and everything else was straightforward.

  • Please can anybody tell me how to unlock a wal mart family mobile lg stylo 2 plus model number lg k550 to work on t mobiles network I’ve been locked out of my phone for days and neither t mobile nor family mobile will unlock for me.

  • I meant to post a comment and couple of pics last year (August, 2016) regarding a phone cover case that I purchased for the HTC Desire 626s.

    Zizo Wireless review

    Last year I broke two Samsung Galaxy phones at work (non-related work.. nothing technical.. 100% pure neanderthal work) so I started using one of mid-range HTC phones for the work (I’m a lot more willing to trash a $100 HTC Desire 626s than another Galaxy..). The work environment is one in which a phone is likely to get smashed or dropped for heights.

    I learned of a small company called Zizo that makes what they call a Bolt Cover with Tempered Glass Screen for phones. The products are designed in the USA and made in China. Zizo indicates that they are a family company that has engineered innovated products for more than a decade.

    zilo-bolt-cover-htc-desire-626-phone-1

    I’ve used the cover at work and I’ve dropped the HTC phone from a height or 70 or 80 feet once and the phone survived and the Zizo bolt cover was intact and not damaged. The neon green and black colored case might not be for everyone (I only use while conducting work at heights) but it absolutely helps when looking for a phone which has fallen down into rugged terrain or if you are looking 80 to 200 feet down or away while trying to locate the phone.

    zilo-bolt-cover-htc-desire-626-phone-2

    I paid $12.99 for the Zilo bolt cover case. Shipping was free.

    Zilo contact information is as follows –

  • I just picked up a brand new tmobile htc626s off craigslist for my mom figured its a good first smartphone for her she has tracphone i went through tracphone to activate the sim and it said sim locked.It has the unlock app factory installed will this work on her phone or is this only for the older htc626s before the app came out.She cant use her original phone they said the sim is dead once they transfer service they cant use the old sim i need to get another sim it takes 7 days from tracphone.Before i get a new one sent to reactivate her old phone i was hoping to get this htc626s unlocked.

  • @ Worthingham:
    Wow spent all day and it still says “SIMLock enabled”

    It’s a HTC OPM92

    Here is the last lines of the command line and seems like they all worked.

    Put my sim card in and rebooted and did not make the new sim card work.

    Here’s my site and my post regarding the phone: https://rayday.me/blog/?p=46021

  • @ Raymond Day:

    Were you able to SIM UNLOCK your phone? Btw, I checked out your blog. Interesting site.

    One other question, are you into Bitcoin and cryptocurrency?

  • I got a unlocked code for it but there is no place to type it in that I know of. Got it from http://sim-unlock.net paid a little $ for it too.

    If any one knows were I can put in 1 of 2 they gave me let me know please.

  • @ Raymond Day:

    I recommend the following steps:

    (1) Power off your phone

    (2) Remove SIM card

    (3) Power phone on again (without the SIM card), then wait a minute and power off again

    (4) Insert SIM card

    (5) Power your phone on again

    I believe at that point you should see a message on the screen asking for the unlock code.
