Solved! Autel MP808TS “Has been locked since illegal operation” Issue


I have my Autel MaxiPRO MP808TS Scan Tool device…it is just locked, and if you switch it on, it always writes that “The device has been locked since an illegal operation has been detected.”

What do I do? I just switched it on and that message popped up, it was working well all this while and suddenly locked.

The reason for the device lock is because someone had replied to Autel that this MP808TS scanner was stolen. It is on the blacklist now so that no one can use it anymore.
