6630 -> unlock 3g (dual) to GSM mode -> tutorial

Hiya guys and girls.
This tutorial is for anyone who has a 6630 but is tired of the poor 3g signal from vodafone or any other operator. Some of the earlier firmwares (2.39.151) of 6630 do not have the menu to switch the 3g/gsm (dual) mode to GSM.

tutorial is here:

Net Monitor?

Correct me if I am wrong, but with DCT-4 and BB5 (6630) handsets, doesn't the phone have to have Nokia test firmware installed to have the Net Monitor feature enabled?

Only recently have tools to read unencrypted firmware from DCT-4 phones been available, and as far as I am aware the tools and algorithms to re-encrypt the flash files haven't been released, although a few people on GSM Forum claim to have cracked it.

Are things different with the 6630 (BB5)? Can Net Monitor be added without messing about with the firmware?

Never mind all the bollocks I wrote in the last post, the program is a .sis file called OperatorFtdwk39v7.sis and there's a link to it in some italian forum here: http://www.nokiaworld.it

I'm still waiting for the registration confirmation email to arrive

Never fear, I'll post a link soon as I get it to save all you lot faffing about.

a quick word of advice mate, check the rules of this forum, I am sure this app has been requested here before (quick search the forums) and I think the mods were a little "unimpressed" with the link.

Cheers

Furry muff. Will have to stick it up somewhere else.

Any chance of a pm with a pointer? No activation email from the italian site yet.
