Sunrise 8 MiniUnlocker is a new fully automated unlocker for Windows 8 developed by sCooBy^, one of the first hacker who cracks open the locking mechanism of Windows 8 features in Windows 8 Build 7955. The main difference of Sunrise 8 Unlocker when comparing with BluePill or NoPill is that it skips patching slc.dll or any SPP (Software Protection Platform) related files so that the activated Windows 8 system will continue to be genuine upon validation after unlocking.

Any modification or patching to Windows software licensing (SL) and activation related system files will cause Windows to return non-genuine status because the genuine verification calculates the hash checksum of strategic system files against official database. As the result, Microsoft Security Essentials will display error message that this version of Windows is not genuine.

Sunrise 8 Unlocker attempts to make activated Windows 8 genuine by not touching slc.dll and other licensing related files, which initially released as “red pill” hack. Instead, it modifies other files instead such as authui.dll and shell32.dll.mui, and redirects them to make the call to a patched slx.dll instead.
