    Unhappy Please Help, At Incorrect SIM after anySIM and reboot

    He guys, I've been at it for a week now. Did the hardware unlock about 4 times, virginized, anySIMed, putty, apptapp, and everything else written anywhere.

    Now I finally have it, virginized, bricked, lockdownd, anySIMed up to the unlock.
    So I'm stuck at "unlock commands failed" and I can see modem version and IMEI and ICCID.

    Ever since the first hardware unlock when it showed error at minicom after the AT 0's commands, it seems the end is the problem. What can I do? Please help...

    What does the baseband have to do with it and how can I fix it?

    Thanks for the intention, (not for the tone) hadn't replaced lockdownd but now I did. Think I bricked it; it's lagging a lot and unresponsive, will try to get in restore mode.

    If anyone can let me know what happens in this final stage, and what could be wrong I would really appreciate it! I do have an IQ over 100) Thanks to all who made the app possible. Sorry on behalf of everyone, as most people only talk when the have trouble. If you count the downloads and compare it to the posts, it's probabbly a lot more.

    If this is bricked I'l probbably but another one and take this to the range

    Had you faux-activated your iPhone before trying the anySIM and lockdownd method?

    I haven't used anySIM, but when I first tried unlocking my iPhone and replacing the lockdownd file, I still had SIM error messages. I believe this was because there were (prior) activation records in the subdirectory where the lockdownd file was located.

    To be clear, I reached a point where my iPhone was unlocked, but I was having activation issues with the various different SIMs I wanted to use. The lockdownd replacement is a quick way to avoid having to re-activate your unlocked iPhone every time you change SIMs. Since I had faux-activated (and re-activated) my iPhone several times, I had several of these prior activation records lying around in my iPhone.

    So I deleted those prior activation records, then restored the iPhone, and then replaced the lockdownd file, and rebooted. This worked, and now I can swap out SIMs and the iPhone recognizes them immediately.

    Since you ran anySIM, I am guessing that you may have unlocked your iPhone, but are having trouble with the re-activations, so this may help.

    (I can't track down exactly what subdirectory the prior activation records are located, but I am almost positive they are in the same subdirectory where the lockdownd file is located -- if you can't find them, let me know).

    The prior activatioon records may exist in the following subdirectory:

    /var/root/Library/Lockdown/activation_records

    (i.e., they are not in the same subdirectory as the lockdownd file, but one directory level lower)

    This is from the following thread, which talks about activating the iPhone and You Tube back in the days before anySIM existed (so it assumed you had previously unlocked the iPhone, but still needed to activate it to recognize your new SIM): http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=5582
