Unlocking iMate SP5

iMate SP5 is certificate security enabled by default.Which essectially means an application wont be able to call previleaged api's.

One needs to modify 2 registry keys

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies0001001 = change this value to 1,it's 2 by default.This setting specifies the RAPI policy."1" indicates full access to active sync."2" indicates access to user authanticated role (SECROLE_USER_AUTH )

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Policies\Policies0001005 = change this value to 40

This setting indicates whether unsigned cab files can be installed on the device.Default value is 16(SECROLE_USER_AUTH),40 means (SECROLE_USER_UNAUTH)

Reboot the device for the settings to take effect.

The install sdkcerts.cab file from your smartphone sdk (\\Windows CE Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone SDK\Tools).To install this cab file copy this file on the device and run it.This would enable you to debug and use remote tools from VisualStudio 2005

If you want to completely unlock the device after making changes in the registry.Check the link (SDA Application Unlock)at the bottom of this post.
