[Full Solution] This Phone Is Disabled by EE

Hello everyone!

I was getting requests everyday to post full solution for “This Phone is Disabled by EE” but i was very busy in other some stuff, so finally today i have decided to post the solution to help you guys.


This data is in persist partition in samsung phone named (persdata) of the phone so you need to format it to fix your phone. But to format this partition you need access to “adb shell” to communicate with phone.

1. First of all find latest CWM/PHILZTOUCH/TWRP recovery for your phone and flash it using odin.

2. Boot you phone in you custom recovery and connect the cable make sure its detected as adb device in you device manager to confirm you can also run the command in CMD ”adb device”

3. Now you are ready to format your persist partition. (This is for S5, Note3 and Note 4)

adb shell
mke2fs /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/persdata
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/persdata

4. For Galaxy Alpha and latest models

commands are almost same but partition table is little bit different so first of all you need to run this command to determine where is persdata in the partition.

ls /dev/block/platform

ls /dev/block/platform

And you will see something listed, e.g. “15540000.dwmmc0″. So you would then replace “msm_sdcc.1″ with “15540000.dwmmc0″. The above command will then become

mke2fs /dev/block/platform/15540000.dwmmc0/by-name/persdata

For S6 :


Root with this file Root

And install this recovery

And use this command

adb shell
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/sda11
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/sda13

And the final step is to Wipe Dalvik & data / factory reset. Its always recommended to flash phone with other firmware then EE uk region firmware so that this will never come back.
