The Mummy

The Mummy is a 1999 American actionhorror film[2] written and directed by Stephen Sommers and starring Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, John Hannah, and Kevin J. O’Connor, with Arnold Vosloo in the titular role as the reanimated mummy.[3] It is a loose remake of the 1932 film The Mummy. In this film, adventurer Rick O’Connell travels to Hamunaptra, the city of the dead, with an archaeologist and her brother. There they accidentally awaken Imhotep, a high priest from the reign of the pharaoh Seti I who has been cursed for eternity.

Verizon Jetpack 4G – Novatel mifi4620LE

MiFi4620LE

 

  1. Connect Jetpack to computer via micro USB cable
  2. Install Official MiFi4620LE Windows PC Driver from Verizon website 
  3. Verify in Device Manager (devmgmt.msc) that drivers are installed correctly and you have Novatel mifi4620L device under modem. If not, you will see unknown Novatel device reported with yellow exclamation mark, search online for correct drivers.
  4. Download latest version of DC Unlocker 2 to be able to confirm the status
  5. Important: Remove Verizon SIM card otherwise it won’t connect and show the details about locked/unlocked
  6. Open DC Unlocker 2 and select:
    • Manufacturer = Novatel
    • Model = Auto detect (recommended)
  7. Click on Detect button to start device scan and you should get similar output as below:
===================================================================
DC - Unlocker 2 Client 1.00.1396
Detecting modem :

selection :
manufacturer - Novatel
model - Auto detect (recommended)

Found Applications port COM3
Found Diagnostics port COM4

Found modem         : MiFi4620L
Model               : MiFi4620L
IMEI                : 990000xxxxxxxxxxx
Firmware            : 3.20.16
Compile date / time : Feb 11 2013 22:07:46
Chipset             : Qualcomm MDM9600
NAND Flash          : MT29F1G08ABBDAH4   
SIM Lock status     : unlocked

===================================================================

 

MiFi should be unlocked, if it’s not and you want to unlock it: you will need to register and buy credit for DC – Unlocker.

The one I found was unlocked, so I didn’t test the unlock steps reported in the unlock Guide.

BTW: You don’t need to do firmware update steps as device is old, so it’s probably already updated to latest version of firmware and it will error out if you try to push same firmware version.
