How to app unlock your HTC S621 Windows Mobile Smartphone

This tutorial will guide you in “app unlocking” your HTC S621. I was hoping to create something like ‘how to app unlock a windows mobile smartphone’, but after spending hours and hours trying to unlock my phone, I’ve discovered there are possibly hundreds of different ways – no two are the same, and not all will work for all phones. I can only confirm that the following method works for Rogers (a Canadian mobile provider) customers using the HTC S621. It may work for other Smartphones as well.

App unlocking will allow you to install “unsigned” 3rd party software. If you’ve ever received the error “Installation was unsuccessful. The program or setting cannot be installed because it is not digitally signed with a trusted certificate”, this tutorial is for you.

installation was unsuccessful the program or setting cannot be installed because it is not digitally signed with a trusted certificate

You’ll need to download these 2 files – SP_AllowCertificateInstall.cab and regeditSTG2.exe.

  1. Upload SP_AllowCertificateInstall.cab to your device (or download it directly to your device). Save the file on your devices main memory, not on a mini-SD card. Use the file manager to navigate to SP_AllowCertificateInstall.cab and run it. Click Done when it’s done.

    Great tutorial. I thought I had the same problem on my HTCS621 and I did the same thing. But the message I keep getting is “this installation file is not appropriate for this device”.
    I have been unable to install any 3rd party software on my smartphone.
    Do you have any idea on how I can fix it?

    Thanks
