Although, we have already shared different methods and tricks to enter unlock code for different modems with customized WebUI and firmware but, these methods and tricks do not work with some new devices. Especially with devices that have highly customized and secured webUI and the device does not prompt for entering unlock code and do not accept code from any previously available methods, tricks and software tools.
One best available option is Huawei HiLink (Mobile WiFi) mobile app/software which is created by Huawei itself for managing the devices through smartphones but no luck with these customized modems.
These Huawei Hilink modems are based on HiSilicon chip and work on RNDIS Technology (plug and play), which do not requires any driver installation to use internet, hence do not create COM ports in PC, when you connect it to PC with USB cable. Now, problem is that, since it does not create any COM port, and all AT commands and code entering tools work only with COM ports. It means, you can not use any Huawei Code Writer / Unlock Code Sender Tool without creating/enabling COM ports.
There are so many users who are facing problem in unlocking these customized firmware modems and requesting for some appropriate solution Finally it could become possible to unlock these devices using a combination of tools and step-by-step guide:
