Unlock LG Optimus One (p500h)

LG Optimus ONE p500 Telus Unlock using OCTOPUS CLIP
Unlock LG Optimus ONE p500h



This phone can be easily unlocked using OCTOPUS clip but Octopus does not work with the original firmware:
"To perform this operation please write firmware "LGP500h-FOR-UNLOCK" from the support area."
So download "LGP500h-FOR-UNLOCK.oct" from Boot-loader.com.
(Must have octopus registered or a paid account)

One thing to keep in mind with firmware flashing is that it will erase all contents of the phone. So before you flash the firmware backup whatever data / applications you do not want to lose.
  • Contacts can be backed up on the sim card
  • Pictures / movies can be backed up on pc using USB connection
Here are the OCTOPUS logs from start to finish:
