If Windows Mobile device does not connect via USB
Sometimes Windows Mobile devices do not allow installing and starting uncertified applications, like
OxyAgent. Unlocking procedure solves this problem. Unlocking is changing some values in the device registry.
There are two mains steps of unlocking:
1st Step
 Connect your device to ActiveSync or Mobile Device Center via USB cable.
 Start UnlockWM.bat in Oxygen Forensic Detective/SystemFiles folder on PC.
 Your device should be unlocked.
If this step does not help you may start WhatsNow.bat file in the same folder on PC. A special file
RapiConfigOut with the device registry information will be created. You can send this file to us for analysis and
we will try to fix the problem.
2nd Step
You can take a special application regedit and unlock the device with its help. This application is free
and can be started without any installation. It can be found in Oxygen Forensic Detective/SystemFiles folder
on PC.
Please, note that the application from our program folder is certified only for HTC devices. To install it to
another device you should find the relevant version in the Internet.
The unlock process should be carried out this way:

 Copy regedit.exe to any device folder and start it from device File Manager. Edit the following key
names in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->Security->Policies->Policies->00001001
value data 2 should be 1
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->Security->Policies->Policies->00001005
value data 16 should be 40
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->Security->Policies->Policies->00001017
value data 128 should be 144

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->Security->Policies->Policies->0000101b
value data should be 1 (DWORD type).
 Restart the device. It should be unlocked.
