    Default Unlocking SmartBro ZTE MF190 - Step-by-Step Instructions


    Merry Christmas ka-istoryans!
    I decided to post this instructions in unlocking your SmartBro ZTE Mf190 para pud dili namu mag-antos kung hinay na ang smartbro sa inyong area. This is strictly for SmartBro ZTE MF190 kay ang sa SunBro nga ZTE MF190 kay maunlock naman gamit tong DCCrap.exe app(cracked DC Unlocker app). Nakuha nako ang idea from other forum site pero ako jud nagedit sa instructions para klaro. Here goes:

    Prepare the following files:
    a.QPST Setup file - QPST_Setup.rar
    b.dl_mf190s_eti_eg_euv1.00.00 - dl_mf190s_eti_eg_euv1.00.00.rar
    c.ZTE MF190 Movistar ES - DL_MF190_MOVISTAR_ES_EUV1.00.00.zip
    d.original SmartBro MF190 files
    (Note: hindi na kailangan ang "DL_MF190_BLN_RU_EUV1.00.00" file, "Movistar ES firmware" will be good enough. Also, I am using Windows XP 32bit. And the orignal SMARTBRO Dashboard & Drivers ay already installed before doing the below instructions.)


    1.Install QPST, then Open QPST Configuration. Click "Add New Port" and select the port of your USB Modem(nakaplug na ang stick by this time), then click OK. You should see there SURFXXXX under Phone column. Click "Start Client(nasa taas na menu bar)", then click "EFS Explorer". You will see there the port with SURFXXXX na label, click OK. You will be presented with folders and files. Do not touch the folders. Just to be sure, save a copy of the following files before you delete them, 9 files all in all (this will serve as your original SmartBro MF190 Files). You can save a copy by highlighting all the files then right click. After saving a backup, DELETE the listed files.
    1. config
    2. reset_cntr.bin
    3. pbm_phone_uid.dat
    4. pbm_master_v_20.dat
    5. ZTEMODEM.ISO
    6. UimEfsAPDULog.Txt
    7. NODOWNLOAD.FLG
    8. SWITCH.TMP
    9. AUTORUN.FLG
    After deleting the files, close "EFS Explorer". You will be prompted to reset the device, just choose "No". Close "QPST Configuration".

    2. Update firmware using "dl_mf190s_eti_eg_euv1.00.00" firmware file(approx.15mins.). After the update, the device will reset automatically and will install the dashboard na "ETISALAT"(I do not know if ano ang mangyayari if you will interrupt the installation process. Basta ako, I let it install). Base on my experience, it will ask for the drivers. Ang ginawa ko, I direct the path to SMARTBro Folder under Program Files, then sa Drivers folder, then depende na sa OS nyu.There are times when ma-pause and installation because hindi pa nainstall ang drivers. Once installed na ang drivers, the installation process will continue. Ang nangyari sakin, 2 Dashboards will showup, isa sa SmartBro and sa Etisalat. Just let it pop up then close/exit.

    3. Others are suggesting na unplug then replug the USB stick, on my case hindi na. Dirediretso na ang pag-uupdate ng firmware. Next is to update the firmware this time using"ZTE MF190 Movistar ES" firmware. BUT BEFORE that, repeat Step 1 wherein you need to open QPST Configuration again. Do not touch the folders, you can save a backup copy of the files before deleting. Still DELETE the listed files.
    1. config
    2. reset_cntr.bin
    3. pbm_phone_uid.dat
    4. pbm_master_v_20.dat
    5. ZTEMODEM.ISO
    6. UimEfsAPDULog.Txt
    7. NODOWNLOAD.FLG
    8. SWITCH.TMP
    9. AUTORUN.FLG
    After deleting the files, close "EFS Explorer". You will be prompted to reset the device, just choose "No". Close "QPST Configuration".

    4. This time update firmware using “ZTE MF190 Movistar ES” file (20-25mins.). Double click the file, wait for it to detect the device then proceed. After ma update, the device will reset automatically and will install the dashboard na "Movistar" and will ask for the drivers again. Still follow the same process. Now, 3 dashboards will pop-up, 1 SmartBro, 1 Etisalat, and 1 Movistar. Let the dashboards pop-up then simply close/exit.

    5. Now this next step is the one I followed from the thread "Unlocking MF180" by jin. Back to Step 1 again, open QPST Config, then save a backup copy of the files except the folders if you want. I DELETED ALL the files (instead of ZTEMODEM.ISO file only) EXCEPT the FOLDERS, and drag & drop the files from the "original SmartBro MF190 folder", all 9 files drop to where I deleted the listed files:
    1. config
    2. reset_cntr.bin
    3. pbm_phone_uid.dat
    4. pbm_master_v_20.dat
    5. ZTEMODEM.ISO
    6. UimEfsAPDULog.Txt
    7. NODOWNLOAD.FLG
    8. SWITCH.TMP
    9. AUTORUN.FLG
    After deleting and replacing the files, close "EFS Explorer". You will be prompted to reset the device, just choose "No". Close "QPST Configuration".

    6. This time, unplug the USB stick, uninstall the 3 dashboards yung smartbro na dashboard, etisalat,and movistar na dashboard, then clean / fixed registry using ccleaner na software or any software alike. You can restart your computer after uninstalling all 3 softwares to prepare for fresh install once ireplug natin ang USB Stick.

    7.Ikabit ang USB Stick na MAY IBANG SIM maliban sa smartbro. Then mag-ooautorun sya para mainstall ang dashboard na SmartBro at corresponding Drivers. You will be amazed na accepted ang sim and merong signal. OPENLINE na SmartBro ZTE MF190 Stick mo mga pre! Cheers! ASTIG kaayo.

    asa man makita pre kung mf190 a or b? ang niappear sa ako kay mf190 raman katong sa smartbro.
    i think epektib ra japon ni pre kay through firmware update man, and not through unlocking code. unlock nga firmware.
    kung naa ka diha pre, pwede nimu itry.
