  • V170 tracfone

    I recently buy Rocker Dongle from unlockcellular.com, I have latest versions of the software and drivers from Rocker Dongle support area.

    I have unlocked many motorola ODM phones with ODM Rocker v1.18 and betas v1.19 and v1.20 without problems.

    Except for this new Motorola V170 from TracFone USA. I connect the cable to the serial port on the dongle (RJ45 which I used with all previous phones), press connect on right COM port (COM4) press the power button on V170 (I have tried with all COM speeds), phone detected but:

    Check if phone already booted
    Power ON phone shortly
    Phone detected
    Boot Loading Error


    Doing the same procedure with V172:

    Check if phone already booted
    Power ON phone shortly
    Phone detected
    Boot Succesfully Loaded
    Calypso lite
    Flash size : 8388608
    IMEI : xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Model type : MOTOROLA_C071
    FW version : 4.6.57
    CODE version : CODE.90.01
    Flex version : FLEX_90_61_3T02
    RSPK version : RSPK.90.01.01
    FMGR version : FMGR.90.03
    LP version : LPLA_V171_4657


    V170 is supported by Rocker Dongle, what it is the problem?

            If phone not boot:
            1- posible cable connection.
            2- FTDI or Serial problem.
            3- New boot inside. remember v170 sw 9.1.28 can't boot with any box.

              new boot yes.
              v170 can be booted with TP like c139,c155 e.t.c.?

                Yes sir, i use cdma box with rs232 that is like profilic and work perfect.
                Remember you are a profeccional, but some of we arenīt. Many people here only take jobs time to unlock phones and not desolder or remove "cpu" i know legija can make solution like "c139 solution i posted, without TP" i belive he gona found the way to write into new boot phones..

                    try both cable.
                    I just have the cables that come with the dongle:

                    Mini USB cable
                    V66 USB cable
                    UniBox Adapter cable
                    F3 RJ45 cable
                    J100 RJ45 cable
                    T191 RJ45 cable

                    I am not a pro so if you could point me in the right direction where can I learn more about prolific and ftdi cables, I don't think it will be available in my country but hopefully unlockcellular.com have it. The weird thing is that I don't think is a cable problem as I have say before other phones work flawlessly but who knows maybe some phones requires those special cables.

                    The phone boots OK to tracfone firmware I just want to unlock it and better if can replace the firmware.

                    Thanks.

                      just tipe this code and scroll down.
                      you find more info about phone,like sw version,instaled langpack e.t.c.

                      in market exist 2 usual usb-rs232 convertor
                      with ftdi chip inside(ft232bm) and with prolific chip inside(pl2303)
                      most boxes have ftdi chip inside.
                      but some boxes(like siemens boxes) and some cables(motorola,sharp,nokia) have prolific chip inside.
                      exist in market usb-t191 cable with prolific chip.
                      just ask reseiler about this cable.

                        SW Ver: 9.1.28
                        FLASH: N/A
                        Version Info.
                        CODE.90.01
                        BOOT.90.05
                        FMGR.90.53

                        DSC:flex OFF
                        UART Disable

                        This last line (UART Disable) means that the serial is disabled in the phone?
                        Maybe that is the problem. Can it be enabled?

                        Ok, excellent explanation, now I get it, so the Rocker Dongle comes with FTDI chip instead of the Prolific chip?

                        My computer have normal serial ports (DB9), is not better and straighforward to just make a cable from DB9 to T191 instead of using USB to serial chip converters?

                        I'm learning a lot and your answers will be useful for other folks too, thanks.
