Unlocking Reliance 3g tab

Updated on July 5, 2012

Disclaimer!

This unlocking guide is only for educational purpose and any attempt to unlock your or others’ tab with or without permission is your responsibility. I shall not be held liable for any loss of your personal data or damage to your reliance 3g tab. I don’t take the credit for creating the guide but I am only a medium to deliver this guide to all those who wanted to know about unlocking reliance 3g tab. And I repeat that this guide is only for educational purpose and I will be not responsible for anything that you do or don’t do on your tab.


I had been looking for a way to unlock my reliance 3g tab since I got this device as I don’t like their network. Reliance tab is a great device and if able to you with other networks it would be awesome and it is awesome. Now I use my other network’s sim in my “reliance tab” with no problems and additionally I have got more internal storage place then before. Thanks to some people who have done a great job in providing the tools to unlock my tab.


So here is the most awaited guide for you people who have been searching for a way to use other network’s sim card on the tab. Although it is not a very difficult task, I will suggest that you go through the whole procedure first till the end so that you know beforehand that you can complete the task or not.

To unlock your reliance 3g tab firstly you will need following things

1. Your reliance tab with its usb data cable.

2. A computer with windows xp/vista/7 and reliance 3g tab pc suite installed on it.

3. A rar file which can be downloaded from the following link: Jugaad.rar

4. Winrar software which I hope you have it installed on your pc (if not google it).

Extract the jugaad.rar file on your desktop.

Now the real deal starts from here

1. Backup your contacts, messages and other useful data from your tab and remove your SD card and sim card from your tab. (Also Save your tab’s Wi-Fi Mac address which can be noted from Settings>About Phone>Status>Wi-Fi Mac Address)

2. Removing sd card will require you to power off your reliance tab. Don’t switch it on again and if you do for any reason then switch it back off before continuing with the 3rd step.

3. Now, press Volume - button and hold for a few seconds and without releasing it, press power button and hold both buttons. Hold it for approximately 10 seconds. If you do it correctly then your tab will enter in FTM mode (i.e. you will see FTM written on the screen with white background). If your phone does not enter in FTM mode then switch off the phone and repeat step 3.

4. Connect your reliance tab with the PC in which you extracted jugaad.rar file.

5. Open Device manager in your computer (For XP users: Start Menu>Right Click on My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager. For Vista/7 users: Start>Right Click on Computer>Properties>device manager)

6. Expand the Ports Section on the device manager window by clicking + sign. ZTE Handset Diagnostic Interface (DFU) will be visible in the list with a COM port number (for example: com 22, com12 etc). Note down the COM port number.

7. Now, Open the Jugaad folder extracted on the desktop.

Open File: Sales_MultiDL_MSM7227_patched.exe (A window will open with title: V9 flasher patched by radmir)

8. Click on Options > Port Config.

On Line 1----DIAG select the com port number you previously noted from the device manager.

9. If you followed steps 1 to 8 correctly then your tab’s name will be visible in the SW section and at the right side of it a Ready signal will be seen. Repeat steps 1-8 if something went wrong!

10. Now from the “Action Mode” section at the bottom of the window select “BackUp NV” option and Start All.

Note: Make Sure you select backup NV option before clicking Start All button.

11. Wait for some time. In the Jugaad folder at the desktop a file named Channel1.nvm (around 70 KB) will be created. Copy the file in My Documents folder as a backup. This file contains the IMEI number of your tab and can be used to restore the IMEI number if you lose it accidentally.

12. Come back to the “V9 flasher window”. In the “Action Mode” section select “Download”. Click on “SW Directory” option and then select the directory of “files” folder in the jugaad folder on the desktop and click OK.

13. Now check that you did everything right on step number 12. If everything is right then click on “Start All”.

14. After about 5 minutes the software will finish its task. Disconnect your phone from PC after it is done and remove the battery from the “Unlocked Reliance Tab”.

15. After about 5-10 seconds insert the battery again and switch on the tab. This time only power button will be needed to switch on and enjoy with your unlocked reliance 3g tab.

Changes that you will notice after Unlocking the tab


1.You have an unlocked Reliance 3g tab with you.

2.The power-on style is changed (image is changed, no annoying reliance music)

3.Many applications that ate too much internal storage of the tab has been removed (like orkut, gmail, facebook etc). These apps can be installed again from the market!

4.Now, you have more internal storage (275 MB).

5.Faster than before!

      Hey mohit

      I am stuck with one more problem. i got idea sim for for GPRS connection but i am not able to create a connection. once i save it it goes away.

      regarding the problem i told u about. i found out something.

      when i create a new apn it needs me to change MNC code. if i change the default value to anything other then 14, then the apn does not get saved.

      so ideally data would not work on the tab till we have a solution to change MNC code in APN

      Pls help me with the same.

      Hi Mohit,

      Myself sahil,

      i just unlocked my tab using capt sarthis steps

      i must say the tab is working faster than before, but i find the keybord to be slower to working. though that's not much of an issue..

      One thing i would like to as is ?

      the rom you are providing is identical to sarthi's and hence guess all the characteristics will be same.

      i want to remove the zeam launcher, its very unpremium, may mail id- sahilverma.delhi@gmail.com

      please can you help m get the previous launcher back?

      and, what about the messaging icon i can't find any ?

      please help!

      the tab is working perfectly fine!

      Thanks Mohit and Pranav for the help.

      I understood the procedure for unlocking tab and restoring wifi.

      But, as mentioned by Pranav,can u tell me where i can find steps for bringing back the original OEM OS after unlocking tab and restoring wifi ?

      I did not find steps for bringing back the original OEM OS on capt Sarthi's blog.

      mohitmitm 5 years ago

      @pranav- i think u said it all...and for video calls u can try as mehul said..i never used video calls...but i find any other solution yen i will tell you..

      @ mehul-yes you need to unlock your tab with the above steps and then follow steps to restore ur wifi..ur tab will work just fine..there is no problem noted with the tuch,sensors or any thing else..

      Cheers!!

    • profile image

      mehul3g 5 years ago

      thanx Pranav.

      So,Basically,u mean that first i should follow mohits steps.then i should follow the steps for Oem os and wifi,right?

      Secondly,As u have unlocked ur reliance tab,would like to confirm whether other functions like touchscreen,gravity sensors,Bluetooth,front and rear camera are working after unlocking and whether there are any hanging problems ?

      Thirdly,about video calling,it works on an application called "TANGO" as per my experience.

      prkanwar 5 years ago

      "Mohit: .google "wifi issue resolved reliance 3g tab" i can't post the link here so u'll have to search..I think it will take u to capt. sarthi's blog..ur tab will get its wifi back"

      Pls read through the above mentioned reply from Mohit. this will open an article which will have the steps on restoring ur wifi mac and also restoring the OEM OS.

      Please make sure you read both the articles. i made same mistake i read part of the article but dint read it through.

      So in short. follow the steps mentioned by mohit first. then ur tab will be unlocked and ready to use.

      the issue which u will face would be u wont have OEM OS and wifi might not work.

      so u follow the steps in the above mentioned article and using the hexa-decimal editor restore ur wifi mac address. lastly if u want OEM OS then u do the same. the tab would remain unlocked even after loading the default OS.

      As told by Mohit. Pls make sure u copy the MAC address and IMEI no# of the tab in advance.

      @Mohit - Pls correct me and add ur comments for Mehul's Question if anything is left.

      Secondly pls tell me about video calling. if the video calling is possible on Rtab.

      Pranav

      thanks Pranav and Mohit.But can u guide me as to how to load Reliance OEM OS back? I am not an expert.How do i go about doing this? Is the OEM OS to be downloaded from some link? If so,then from which link. What is the procedure?

    • profile image

      prkanwar 5 years ago

      Hey Mohit,

      i have one more question. i wanted to make video calls using my RTab, but it wont let me.

      As you already know i have unlocked my tab and i have the Reliance OEM OS back on the tab. I have used video calling on my Corby Pro. when i used the same sim on my tab it does not work.

      When i went to R World outlet the dealing person told me some Indian Act has prohibited video calling on Tab. i somehow feel that the information provided to me is not right. I tried looking for the answers on Google but could not find much answers.

      I think u also use R tab. Are u able to use video calling ? if yes then pls tell me what is it that i am missing?

      ****To answer mehul3g's question. I think as we have the option to load the Reliance OEM OS back i don't think those people would be able to know that we have unlocked the set. just make sure that u have there OEM OS installed again on the computer. So right now everything on mu R tab is same as i bought it just that i can use any service provider.****

      @mehul3g-Firstly, there is no way to go back to factory settings after unlocking. Secondly, there are no hardware or software issues if you unlock your tab, however you will lose the warranty for the tab. Anyway if after unlocking, there is some problem, then you can "brick your reliance tab". google "bricking android devices" to know more.

      I want to unlock my reliance tab.But i have just purchased it 4 months ago.Just wanted to know that after unlocking is there a way to revert back to factory setting,that is back from unlocked to locked state.The reason behind this is because if there are any hardware issues or problems in the warranty period,then i can get it rectified from reliance in the warranty period.Else,if i break the lock code,reliance will not honor the warranty.Appreciate if someone can throw light on this as to how to avoid warranty period issues.However i am very eager to unlock my 3g tab and use it to its full potential.Thanks.
