    Default no SIM visible after HW unlock

    Hi guys,
    This is Szymon from Poland. I went through hardware unlock http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=3705 and got without problems to "The iphone has now been hardware unlocked" step. Hack has been done with chosen SIM card inserted(not original AT&T, but final one which I wanted to use with iPhone).
    I couldn't finish with activation point as my iPhone doesn't see any SIM card. Yes, I've tried with few other and also doesn't work. When starting iPhone it's "Searching" and then has one smallest bar on signal bar (same happens when there is no SIM card). When SIM card is out is doesn't say anything about missing SIM card. When card is in, it can't find it - I'm not able to get IMEI or ICCID. Whatever I'm trying to do (for example ./tool --activate a.plist), it says: "Could not retrieve the ICCID (make sure the SIM is inserted)".

    Basically, looks like my iPhone doesn't see any SIM card inserted. Doesn't matter if SIM is in or out - iPhone behavies the same. PLEASE HELP !!

    I couldn't do any of last steps:
    • Generate a new activation plist.
    • Activate your iphone
    • You will feel awesome!•

    I don't feel awesome Any ideas? Please !

    What do you mean by restore? Restore fresh firmware via iTunes to 1.02 and start over whole process?

    I had the EXACT! same issue. No sim was seen. I was able to go through the activation but with the warning. I restored which fixed the MissingSim but then I got a MismatchedICCID warning when activating with my own sim.

    Some have said that it may be due to the method of activation before starting the hack. It has also been mentioned that if you use the "lockdown" method of activation that it wil work.

    Which method did you use to activate before the hack?

    I am curious if there is something that can be done after the restore to bring back the unlock hack.

    Cracker's instruction says:
    • Jailbreak your iPhone using iNdependence or Brickr
    • Activate your iPhone using iNdependence or Brickr (or Iasign for PC)

    I'm Mac, I used iNdependence for Jailbreak and iActivator for activation as I was getting -402653165 error with iNdependence. For this first activation before hack I used final SIM card (not AT&T). I wonder if that matters...
