How to Unlock Huawei E8372h Wingle or Warid LTE Wingle.

Huawei E8372h comes up with different  version of Huawei algorithm. v1, v2, v3 codes are useless in this device. And it can not be unlocked by just putting unlock code. For unlock there is a complete process and after that you are able to run any SIM card on it. In Pakistan Warid LTE is selling this device with network locked, after spending more than 2 months and wasting a lot of time today am able to unlock this device for personal use.

The guys at OLX are charging almost RS.1500 for unlocking and they are also following the same guide which i posted below , first published in Russian website. And from their they got the solution, i paid more than two guys and they gave me code but all failed in this device due different version. And my 5 unlocking tries were wasted.

Few days back the same guy asked me that now he can unlock this device but, for that you have to send this device so that i can change its firmware and unlock it for you, for just RS.1500.

I google and after spending few time i manage to find the solution and than i have two options , to take risk by myself or pay more than double for unlocking.

This methods works on any Huawei E8372h wingle with any network locked. Here in Pakistan i tried it on waridLTE.

5. Connect your E8372 to PC, check that you can access web-interface via http://192.168.8.1/, Here in my case i can’t get to web-interface, if same happens to you try step 6 and 7 or try by skipping step 6 and 7, i skipped step 6 and 7 and it works.

6. Use the following script E8372_switch_mode.7z to get device in COM ports mode.

PRICE: Price for this depends on the owners of the website, i pay only, RUB 216 converted to PKR it is RS.424 with bank fee. And the people are charging RS.1500 for this unlock process. Yes they are going through the whole procedure and it costs but i think it is more than enough because it is new device and difficult to unlock after few days it will comes down.

FAQs:

Q. How to back port mode to ndis mode to enter NCK? I done all thing but after getting IMEI encrypted data modem is still in port mode.
Answer 1. Try to disconnect device from PC and connect again. If doesn´t success – you can simply flash your version of firmware. Also you can try this firmware – https://3ginfo.ru/downloads1452.html – Huawei E8372h-608 21.200.07.00.00General.

In above question, if you can’t see Web-UI after competing all steps abd your device not connected and PC not shows 192.168.8.1 than you install the Huawei E8372h-608 21.200.07.00.00General. this happend with me in Warid Wingle, i installed this and all works well. For this only open Wingle Update Wizard Application which is with the downloaded firmware , connect device and run it. After few seconds it shows finished/pass. Than you will be able to see 192.168.8.1
Answer 2. In other words – if your device still in COM port mode you should flash 21.200.07.00.00 firmware, instead of 21.110.99.04.00. After you flash 21.200.07.00.00 device will return in RNDIS mode and you can see your WebUI.

Q. Am not able to install driver, nothing happens when i try to install. I complete 4 steps can’t access to 192.168.8.1

A. Let’s see your device manager, if you see something like this:

Of course this is a OS bug. Huawei Mobile Connect is not an USB-controller. You should delete this device from device manager and than reinstall device. If your device is already in COM ports mode after downgrade – you should go to  step 7 (Install drivers) or to the next step (if already have drivers installed).

This was happen with me and the member answered me through email, he solve it out. Thanks for his precious time.

The above method works for me and it doesn’t mean that it will work for you unless until you read the whole process clearly and know the technicalities. We are not responsible if you damage your device.

Update:

After successful unlock, Normal SIM 2G/3G of  Zong, WaridLTE  won’t work on your Wingle. For that you have to use DATA SIM.

And you can use 2G/3G of normal SIM on Telenor, Ufone and Mobilink/Jazz with any internet package on your unlocked Wingle device.
