    Good day to all! I just want to share this tutorial to those who have SmartBro ZTE MF190 Broadband modem and they want to use other networks like Globe and Sun.

    So, how to openline/unlock this kind of modem?

    1st, we need these requirements:
    • QPST - Please or Register to view links
    • MF190 1st Updater - Please or Register to view links
    • MF190 2nd Updater - Please or Register to view links
    • You need to use LAPTOP! You must plug also the charger to avoid interruption
    • You may put or not to put sim anyway
    The Procedure:

    1st Part
    1. Install QPST
    2. Plug in your modem (after that, close the dashboard)
    3. Open QPST Configuration
    4. Go to PORTS and click ADD NEW PORTS
    5. Select the port of your modem (ex: Port: COM6 Label: COM6) and Click OK
    6. You should see there SURFXXXX under the phone column
    7. Click Start Client > EFS Explorer > You'll see there SURFXXXX Label then click OK
    8. You'll see the files and folders in the modem. You MUST not touch (or attempt to click :D ) the folders.
    9. Save a copy of these files (backup in case you want to restore your old dashboard)
      - config
      - reset_cntr.bin
      -pbm_phone_uid.dat
      - pbm_master_v_20.dat
      - ZTEMODEM.ISO
      - UimEfsAPDULog.Txt
      - NODOWNLOAD.FLG
      - SWITCH.TMP
      - AUTORUN.FLG
    10. Then after backing up those files, delete those files (all 9 files but remember NOT to include the FOLDERS)
    11. After deleting, you'll be prompted to reset the device, just choose NO then close the QPST Configuration
    2nd Part
    1. Update the firmware using the MF190 1st Updater (ET_EG_EUV1.00.00)
    2. It takes 10 -15 mins to update. Just be patient.
    3. After the update, the dashboard of the 1st updater will install and you will install it
    4. After the installation, the 2 dashboard will show up (SmartBro and Etisalat). Just close those dashboard then Unplug your modem
    5. Replug your modem. Close the dashboards
    6. Do the steps on the 1st part
    7. Open QPST Configuration
    8. Select the port of your modem
    9. Open EFS Explorer
    10. Again, don't dare to click the folders!
    11. Delete those 9 files above (you can keep a backup of them if you want)
      - config
      - reset_cntr.bin
      - pbm_phone_uid.dat
      - pbm_master_v_20.dat
      - ZTEMODEM.ISO
      - UimEfsAPDULog.Txt
      - NODOWNLOAD.FLG
      - SWITCH.TMP
      - AUTORUN.FLG
    12. After deleting, you'll be prompted to reset the device, just choose NO then close the QPST Configuration
    13. Open the MF190 2nd Updater, wait until the port is detected, then update (dtac aircard).It takes 15 - 25mins so be patient.
    14. After the update, the dtac aircard will install and you should install it. Then, the 3 dashboard will show up ( SmartBro, Etisalat, and dtac Aircard). Just simply close them.
    15. After that, uninstall the 3 dashboards
    16. Restart if you want or just do a scan by CCleaner.
    17. After the restart/clean, replug the modem with a sim card :D
    18. Viola! your modem now is unlocked! :)
    Don't forget to configure your settings :)

    Sir. sa 2nd part di na po nag tuloy tuloy sa akin, tapos may nag prompt eh remove ko daw tapos replug ulit. 35 mins akong nag intay wala parin. tiningnan ko sa cpu usage 0% so hindi siya nag process.
    binalik ko nlng muna sa default(Smartbro).

    Pwede mag request sir?
    Pwede pa upload ng 9 files ng MF190 2nd Updater(dtac aircard) yung ganito niya:
    - config
    - reset_cntr.bin
    -pbm_phone_uid.dat
    - pbm_master_v_20.dat
    - ZTEMODEM.ISO
    - UimEfsAPDULog.Txt
    - NOdôwnlôad.FLG
    - SWITCH.TMP
    - AUTORUN.FLG

    eh copy ko nalang directly sa modem ko yong files baka pwede. haha
