What is the SE Tool Activation?
On 12th March 2010 SE Tool Team announced that the SE Tool software version
1.02 or higher, requires the SE Tool paid activation.
This activation costs 20 credits, most users already have credits, if not you can purchase 30 credits below (SE Tool credits are only sold in multiples of 30).
Here is the announcement made 12-03-2010
"Dear Setool Customers,
Please read carefully this major news announcement.
We (setool team) have proven that we are the best team in Sony Ericsson arena.
We did many many updates for free and all years not asked for any additional payment. In last version we made for free may be the most HOT update from start. All function for s1 omap, s1 locosto, s1 neptun, db200x, db201x, db2020, db3150, db3200, db3210, db3350 are now working as a standalone. No internet connection or server required.
New time is coming, SEMC improve security and make new cid80 phones. We believe it is fair to ask customer a small payment to continue subscription for excellent setool support. This is necessary in order to invest in new test phones/handsets/sources/servers/staff etc to make all this support possible. Please be sure, we thought this hard and long time to make sure that it is fair and will not burden our loyal customer much.
Upgrade cost will be - 20 SEtool credits. Most of users have credits so can use it for license purchase. Users who have not valid account have to buy it from any autorised dealer.
Upgrade procedure will include remote upgrade of card applet and card activation with license. It will allow you to work with sw versions greater than v1.0 and use new support site. Current file support will also work for current version users. Laser will come out with explanation of upgrade procedure in days ahead. We will try to make this upgrade as easy as possible.
Thank you for understanding and for your continuous support."
After 01.06.2010 the support area will be closed for non-activated customers, so you need to activate to access updates and flash files etc.
