        Firstly, thanks for all this info - I have managed to unlock my phone after a few struggles. I'll share my experience, in case this helps, especially when it comes to firmware version.

        Got my phone from Vodafone Ireland, the system info showed the following:
        Baseband version: 22201010
        Kernel version: 2.6.32.9-perf
        Build number: U8160V100R001C02B617

        Installed DC Unlock software on my netbook with Windows 7 Starter. Followed all instructions to put phone into the correct mode by pressing the 3 buttons (worked), then Windows found the drivers by itselt and successfully installed (checked this in Device Manager) and when connected my phone, but it couldn't be detected. Tried this 20 times at least (restarted netbook, restarted phone....you name it)....But nothing!
        Then found this thread and from comments I understood that my firmware was not suitable for this.
        However, before doing anything with firmware, I decided to try it on my macbook where I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed.
        - installed the DC unlock software
        - put phone into the 3-button mode (whatever you call it)
        - Windows failed to install the driver (tried looking for it, but didn't find)
        - checked which Windows 7 I have, it is 64-bit and donwloaded the correct driver from one of the links in this thread
        - unplugged the phone
        - put it into the 3-button mode again
        - connected it to the laptop
        - went into Device Manager and using the Update driver, installed the Driver from the folder
        - opened the DC Unlocker and.....it DETECTED MY PHONE!!!!!
        I then purchased credits and unlocked my phone however during the unlock the software indicated that the firmware version I have is in fact U8160V100R001C02B618_EFS!
        My phone is unlocked now and phone system info still shows U8160V100R001C02B617, so I am not sure what it is all about.
        Btw, I have also used a diff cable, just in case - the Samsung one from Samsung Jet fitted perfectly, but i doubt the other cable was broken as it works fine to connect phone to pc or to charge it.
        Hope this helps.

                Procedure is the same as explained above by the very helpful Vincentas
                Except that you press VOLUME DOWN+HOME BUTTON+POWER BUTTON

                Phone will hang at start-up with an image of a hourglass/sandglass/sand timer/sand clock
                Insert cable, load drivers, detect phone and unlock

                    then I read from other post that firmware 617 is not unlockable.

                      Then you should download the 618 firmware and simply install it. Make sure you have the old firmware also (if the new one will not work correctly, you could write it back).

                        Could you copy here what is detected by dc-unlocker? Or dc-unlocker is not able to detect your phone?

                            Strange now it doesn not even detect the phone anymore
                            What I did was:
                            hold those three buttons, the screen hanged with a sandclock, plugged the usb cable, changed the config (Huawei phones / auto detect) ...
                            :-(

                                Hello. If you enter firmware update mode, then it means you pressed the wrong combination of 3 buttons. You press VOL+, VOL- and Power button at the same time. Is it working?
