Ericsson EH97

Ericsson EH 1321/237/97Use at your own risk and responsibility, void in PA USA[ This is for ETACS phones. I don't know if it works on the AMPS equivalents, but it probably will ]

EH 237 NAM programming codes:

FCN 923885       (or M 923885) "  924885 "  "  904885 " "  904005 " "  904035 " "  904085 "
we can see the ESN and modify the parameters for the NAM. IMPORTANT! With FCN 904030 we can transfer data,(??) THREE o FOUR timesONLY. This means you can't clone the phone forever!  There may beanother code offering unlimited ESN transfers, or some test-mode option toreset the counter. Experiment, and let me know if you find anything.FCN 900000 asks for 5 Pin codes -- ?? EH237 ESN programming:
Either build an ESN Transfer Cable for the Ericsson EH237 and EH238,or program it directly from your computer with the programming software (

The Citronic Cellular Suite :: Ericsson EH237/97
Available from:
At last the cellular suite is in wide distribution! Thanks to Phoenix ofCCC for cracking this one. It's been around for a good while now but hadn'tbeen released to the various p/h bbs's until more recently. Unfortunately,CCC neglected to include any wiring diagrams for the thing so here they arefor you all to peruse along with a few pointers for running the thing.                     

::: Loading :::
I am not quite sure why but this software refuses to load if there are anymemory managers loaded. In other words, most of you will need to boot offa clean floppy rather than your hard drive. To make such a 'bootdisk' use
from the DOS prompt which will format the disk in your floppy drive and makeit bootable. I don't know why this is the case since the Cheese Factory havenever released software with such problems before.

::: The Cable :::
Much the same as for the Sony CM-H333, the software is self-explanatory, the only thing you need to know is how to make the cable.

Where 21, 11 and 8 represent the numbers of the D-plug pins you must connectto. (ie the leftmost pin of the phone must be connected to pin 21 on themale 25-way D-plug which connects to the printer port of your PC).----------------------------------------------------------------------------EH237 - View from bottom of phone (Keyboard up):

I have _never_ actually made either of these cables, nor rechipped a phone with it. Nevertheless, I am told that the way to make the cables is to buy a plug-in saver charger (eliminator that goes up the bottom socket) and modify that to make your cable from it.
You _must_ buy one with a plug that has adjustable pins. Don't go out and buy one with pins fixed in certain positions since you need to slide them along into the positions shown above. Some may be fixed into the plastic (such as the "Mainline" ones) - Avoid these. If you're lucky the cable to the cigarette lighter will contain 3 wires. That way you can just cut off the lighter plug and solder the 3 wires onto your D-plug. Otherwise you'll need to take your own 3-wire cable from the plug to the D-plug which doesn't look quite as 'neat'. You may have heard a rumour about the Ericsson shutting down after too many ESN changes. I'm afraid I'm not in a position to say either way since I have never owned one. What I _can_ tell you is that I have a friend who has rechipped his at least 30 times with no problems, but I have heard that the maximum number is around 40. I'd love to hear from anyone who knows the real answer. It may be worth your while not using one of these phones for boning a hell of a lot of ESNs on just in case. It's a nice phone to pick up second hand and use for yourself...Anyway, good luck and if you have any comments, suggestions, questions please e-mail them to me at the address below.
