    Hi

    I was looking for the technique and files to Root my T-Mobile Vivacity Phone (with Andriod 2.3.5). Is this the same thing as unlocking your phone or is it different.

    • getandroidfree

       Hi Robert, rooting requires different steps or you need to use the rooted ROM after you complete the unlock.

      • Robert

        Hi, is there going to be anything for Rooting this phone in the Root section because I find all the advise I’ve found so far is usually not very newbie friendly, and links to files seem to result in dead ends.

        • getandroidfree

           sure, I will prepare a guide and post for you. Please do come back next week and have a look.

  • getandroidfree

     You are correct,debranding is nothing but a custom rom. you will loose all your branded (stock rom ) functionality  & you will loose your warranty as well.

    Hi,

    Many thanks for the guidance on unlocking my Vivacity.  However, I have ground to a halt. My phone displayed the FTM mode screen, but when I connected it to the computer there was no obvious sign of recognition.  And when I ran QPST, it showed no port, and after adding new port and running the diagnostic, I got the error report ” There was an error enabling. The port may not be working properly or may be busy. [-2147467259[0x80004005]].”

    Can you advise what to do next?

    Hi  – Thanks for your unlocking guide! I’ve been having a couple of problems though with getting my computer using windows xp to recognise my Vivacity which is running the Fish and Chips Rom. I install the driver – but when I run the “install-recovery-windows.bat” file the phone gets the green android and then the new hardware wizard starts again trying to install software for: Android Sooner Single ADB Interface. Which doesn’t then doesn’t find the required files. Any help would be great, thanks  Chris

  • Chris Hall

    Hi – I am having a similar problem to ‘Tel’ below. I have a new Vivacity that I wish to unlock. I am using XP SP3. I have followed your excellent unlocking guide and have done everything up to step 10. After running the batch file the system starts to search for a new driver for ‘Android’. I have searched for a driver online and tried pointing it to the downloaded USB driver but it doesnt find a driver for ‘Android’. I then tried it on a Vista PC with the same result.
    The “install-recovery-windows.bat” process stalls at ‘waiting for device’ and the phone stays on the green android logo screen.
    Can you help please?
    Thanks, Chris.

      it seems, the driver which you have installed is not working as expected. try this step. connect your phone to some other system, as soon as you connect, you can see virtual driver, where you can copy the USB driver setup. and use this usb driver on you windows 7 box and try again.

    Hi I have a t-mobile vivacity. I tried unlocking the phone and as the users below (Tel and Chris Hall) i am also stuck at step 10. Running on windows 7,

    After
    running the batch file (install-recovery-windows) the system starts to search for a new driver for
    ‘Android’.

    I have searched for a driver online and on other discussions here including the old unlocking guide

    it is unique address to identify/connect your phone in to WIFI network.

  • Neil Youngman

     MAC addresses are supposed to be unique, with each manufacturer getting different blocks of addresses and assigning a unique address from their allocation to each device they manufacture. They are used as identifiers on your local network, so that your device can be identified as the source or destination for a packet of data.

    • http://www.getandroidfree.com/ Savi Kumar

      Sorry, I do not have much info about this model. need to search it.

  • Kickasskev

    Great site, just used your unlock info for the vivacity and it worked great

    But ive had a snoop about an it doesn’t seem to have been updated for “a Year or 2″

    A Shame such a great site and not much more to offer. would really like to see more tip trick hack and unlocks

    I’ll keep checking back hopefully updates will come ;-)

  • impartit

    OK – so the procedure to unlock worked and wiped my ROM. I completed the troubleshooting procedure but now I cannot connect to WiFi and the phone messages “Your phone doesn’t write MAC address, Please Confirm!”. Woe is me – any ideas to correct this or provide a valid workable procedure for rooting the phone in order to correct this.
