    I believe it is because even when i put it on the sprint 1.2.1 firmware it still was asking for a network unlock code

    "Network unlock code" sounds like you'd need to get that from AT&T, right??

    I don't have a clue how GSM works, so I'm totally in the dark on this.

    Were you still asked for a network unlock code when using the O2 firmware??

    you have a sim locked device.....

    So a SIM-locked O2 phone with O2 firmware will still be SIM-locked with Sprint firmware??

    There's actually hardware doing the checking for a specific range of SIM [...fill-in-the-blank... (identifying?)] numbers??

    It looks like you didn't uncomment any of the lines at the top of the Makefile to enable any of the functions.

    Unless you uncomment one or more lines, the Makefile makes no changes.

    I was finally able to get this to work after a couple tries. I am using a RebelSIM and it showed the local network (before I ran the bypass-activation build). After I restored with the new build, it stayed on the SOS mode with of-course the rest of the phone on.

    Any thoughts on whats going on?

    On a different note: the MAKEfile is very easy to miss. (although its fun after you figure it out). If the developer of this app is around, I can help put together a small User Interface for this thing.

    I'm not quite sure what SOS mode is, so no... I have no idea what's going on.

    Honestly, I don't think a user interface is that necessary anymore since Rod has commented out all of the features now. Lots new features, too! He probly could have a stop in the script to warn the user to edit the Makefile if all of the features are still commented out, tho.

    You can catch him in #webos-internals at the FreeNode IRC servers, tho.

    I just used meta-doctor to bypass activation on my new Pixi Plus so I could get it onto Page Plus Cellular. This is a great tool. I did have to make one change to support the verizonwireless pixi plus though.
    In patches I did the following and everything seemed to work

    ln -s pre-p100eww-sprint-1.3.5 pixi-p121eww-verizonwireless-1.3.5.1

    If this is the right thing to do, perhaps it could be added to the repository.

    Thanks again for making the tool.

    Thanks Bill, I've added the appropriate symlink to the repository.

    I noticed that you linked to a different set of patches than I did (1.3.1 instead of 1.3.5) does this mean I guessed wrong and should rebuild my image?
    Thanks,

    My mistake. Link fixed.

    I really need a cheap off-contract Verizon Pixi Plus to be able to test this stuff ...

    Hi Rod. I am trying to create a new Palm Profile using Metadoctor with an O2 Sim card and used the 1.3.5.2 GSM doctor (ultimate goal is to see if I can access the App Catalog with this O2 Sim card number attached to a new profile)

    Bypass activation remains commented since I want to see the Activation/Create profile screen
    I edited Makefile to uncomment the Enable First use Wifi and enable First use app
    I thought this would create a metadoctor which would start up with the Activation screen (the O2 card picks up a local carrier and shows R for roaming but I cannot use data). Anyway I can't for some reason see how to enable the Wifi with the Metadoctor and cannot create a new profile this way. There is a little phone icon on the bottom left which is one taps on shows Enable Wifi as an option but tapping on it doesn't seem to do anything

    I created a new Metadoctor file with Bypass activation, and the Enable first use Wifi and Enable the First use app. With all these uncommented, I can enable Wifi without having to go thru activation. I was hoping to create a profile by running the First Use app but after selecting language, the Palm reboots and then the First use app disappears and there is no option to create a new profile.

    Appreciate some tips here.

    Yep, I see the same. No idea why the wifi option no longer works in 1.3.5
