View Full Version : FAQ: What is GEN

02-10-2004, 08:38 PM
To clear things up:

In our online calculator (http://unlock.nokiafree.org) you need to fill in a detail called "GEN".

GEN = Boxserial. It is a number that makes slight changes in the first digits of the unlock codes.

Which GEN to select
If you unlock a 6230 - use "ASIC 6"
If you unlock a 1100 - use "Griffing Clip"
For all others - use "V2"

Just a small update on this:


Nokia 1100 / 3100 > 33552
Nokia 5140 / 7610 > 33802
Nokia 6230 > 32821
All Others > 33820

Please note that in online calculator you cant input manually the 'GEN' number, so the best alternative will be the offline calculator

Also for the nokia 7600 on 3 the code you have to input is 32779.
Thats what I and a load of other people on the forums did and it worked a treat.

Due to some specific issues about GEN settings, it's better now to select the GEN accordngy to firmware dates instead of phone models.

Press *#0000#. You will see the version and date of the firmware of your phone.

-If it is '03 and backwards: use v2
-If it is '04 and first couple of months of '05: depending on the network, it could be Original, Prodigy or GTCL-001 (the last one specially or 1100 models dated on the first half of '04)
-If it is '05, most probaby the previous serials, plus GEN ONE.

Do not waste your five tries -there's no way to turn the counter backwards-. Use them wisely. If you have any doubts, post in the forum.

Also, if you want an In depth explanation and a couple of good artices, take a look at http://nokiafree.org/forums/t74498/h/s.html

Best regards

Sorry Edge, what do you mean by GEN ONE?

As you may see in the stand alone version of NokiaFREE calc, GEN numbers are a number, and have a denomination. For example, GTCL-001 is 33552, v2 is 32821, etc. ONE it's just another denomination, and if my memory does not fool me it's 32822 (but I could be wrong, I switched to Linux and NokiaFREE calc does not work on it, so I can't ckeck if it's correct)... but you have the idea.

Best regards
