What do you mean unlocked? Are you wanting to use it for a different carrier? If so which carrier. What are you trying to do in Factory Test Mode?
There is a site out there that talks about carrier unlocking the Avail using FTM....http://www.gsmreloaded.com/f92/zte-z990-successfully-unlock-see-inside-15330.html
and I also found this for the avail... http://www.modaco.com/topic/351886-zte-z990-avail-howtos/
I am in the same boat. One, I don't have access to a windows PC, Im on Linux (Ubuntu) I have a atom powered netbook with no dvd drive and not willining to install windows (and had a heck of a time trying to run an install to an external usb drive to make windows work in my world)
So, I wonder, I have my fone rooted (thanx jcase),
is there someway to get into the works and change the carrier/unlock it through the android terminal emulator or back to the ADB to get into the tracfone/net10 firmware and change something?
I have another SIM from a ATT service reseller (company is called Life Wireless and the sim is labeled PURE GSM) I signed up for Lifeline (free govt cellphone) and first I was with Tracfones Safelink but found out they wouldnt do my Net10 Merit with the Safelink account, so I signed up for this other service and just got the sim and it wont take it. Goes right to a grey screen says invalid sim and shows a button onscreen for a emergency call......
I know that the lifeline service is just simple fone/text- no data and thats fine I have wifi at home. I mostly wanted it for the GPS and the cam when Im out and about. I had a cheap Chinese epad (wondermedia 8505 PanImage) that I am using Tipstir's rom on but 1.6 sucked and when I saw this fone on sale for 29 bucks at Thanxgiving time I snatched it up.
I am really interested in using Phyduexs rom because of having a SD swap but I wanna make sure I can use the fone for more than a android "ipod touch" mini tablet lol
