I have shared about Huawei E5578 features and specs, including unlocking in brief. Now, in this post, I am going to provide two unlocked firmware, that can be used in the unlocking of the E5578 mobile WiFi router.

Make sure, firmware change is risky and wrong steps may dead your device. I have personally tested and this solution is working fine.

Huawei E5578Basically, Huawei E5578 comes with V4 Algo unlock code and currently there is no mechanism to directly generate the NCK code using IMEI. In unlocking of E5578, there are two firmware files involved.

Required files to unlock Huawei E5578:

  1. Latest Huawei Mobile Partner for drivers
  2. Universal Master Code Tool to generate firmware code
  3. Huawei E5578s-932 Firmware v21. (general)
  4. Huawei E5578s-932 Firmware general
  5. DC unlocker to generate NV hash

How to unlock Huawei E5578 4G LTE Cat4 Mobile Hotspot using Firmware?

  1. Install Huawei mobile partner in Windows PC.

2. Now run universal master code tool and generate firmware code through Huawei tab or comment below to get the firmware code/password.

3. Reset the E5578 and connect to PC with its default USB cable.

4. Run Huawei E5578s-932 Firmware v21.

10. Copy and paste the below command at the end of the result:

“AT^NVRDEX=50503,0,128” (without quotes) and press Enter from keyboard.

11. It will generate some NV codes in hash format.

12. Copy all the details pay 6 USD through PayPal button and mention model with IMEI in the transaction. I will email you an ask you about generate hash code. After providing the hash code, I will convert it into NCK / unlock code and emailed you back.
