Important Notice
  • Ensure to check your hardware version of your device (it's usually indicated on the web management page or the motherboard) and download corresponding firmware
  • Current works on M022T LCD L02HA_1_10 & M022 LED L02I_1_10
  • Currently works for a temporary unlock on M022T LCD  L02H-1-10. To unlock, start from step 10. Your device will be unlocked but will relock upon restarting the mifi. You'll need to repeat the unlock each time you restart the mifi. Thanks to @Pmicro for confirming
  • Also works for a temporary unlock on M022T LCD  L02C_1_98. To unlock, see the same steps as above. Thanks to @Franco247 for confirming
  • If you successfully unlocked, then remember to switch your device away from 4G only mode as the foreign network sim you use might not be using the same 4G frequency bands as the Mifi itself causing the device to have no signal
  • If you get an error while trying to extract the downloaded files, retry extracting using 7zip software or redownload and try again

your device is not supported for flashing the firmware listed here, you can't unlock using this method
you can try unlocking starting from step 10 downwards (ie skip the section on flashing the firmware), see if it works for your model
