5 years has passed since the triple–color company released their very first Android smartphone, and we know many users want their phones’ bootloader unlocked for free of charge.
Back then, we had to buy a tool known as NTool (now renamed into Easy Box Nokia Tool) usage access from GSM world (here it means phone repair service), and it had been used for bootloader unlock, OS downgrade, OS conversion and carrier unlock in many years. Since using it requires consume credits, we had to charge customers as well.
And since March 2021, we finally understood how service permission granting from early models manufactured by FIH Mobile works (which requires buying internal server access too, unfortunately), thus retired the usage of NTool and moved most of our services into own platform.
And then, we’ve moved our bootloader unlock method into an unified tool package, and we called it “HCTSW Care UU4”. HCTSW means “Hikari Calyx Tech SoftWare” and “UU” means “Unlock Utility”. Customers can request the service anytime, anywhere even if they come from a completely different timezone.
Today, we’re excited to announce it will become free of charge temporarily in a limited time.
