it is last version of NTool without card.

sadly, it will still be server-based so credits will be required even with card.

however, it will allow us to develop some interesting features, like remotelock (FDP) repair ( device corrupted and will shutdown ) and IMEI change for latest phones, like Nokia 9.

all existing users will stay in server database.
