Ok theres either 2 things that happens with all these phones that keep messing up.
1st, I suggest doing this unlock on 1.0.2.
If you have No IMEI, No Firmware, No WiFi, that means you probably erased your baseband, then some reason turned off the phone.
I fixed someones phone today that had 1.1.2 OTB, was giving me the Repair Needed, No IMEI, No WiFi, ect.
I downgraded to 1.0.2. I jailbroke/activated it with iBrickr and activate.bat.
I then installed the all the required stuff iBrickr makes you do to install Applications. Once I was done with that, I installed BSD Subsystem and Mobile Terminal vt100 from my PXL files.
I then uploaded the "bootloader downgrade zip pack" I had downloaded from the official i.unlock.no thread. I uploaded all the files into my /usr/bin folder.
I went to Terminal vt100 on my phone and typed:
launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist (capitalization does matter, so just do it.)
If it doesnt say anything, then it should have worked.
chmod +x bbupdater
2 things can happen. 1) it will ask if the com is being run by another program. or 2) it will ping the baseband and work (if it says it cannot find the baseband, thats fine, that means you already erased the baseband.)
If it says the com is being run by another program, turn off your phone. Start it back up, and then try bbupdater -v again. If it still says its being run by another program you need to manually delete the file from your phone. I was having this problem where even by unloading it, it still wasnt working properly, and that caused ienew, iunew, and bbupdater -f and -e not to work properly.
To delete the file, the easiest way is to simply run iDemocracy with your phone plugged into the comp, click File Browser, and just go to the directory (System/Library/LaunchDaemons) and delete the file (com.apple.CommCenter.plist). Once you delete the file. Restart your phone, go to Terminal, and try bbupdater -v again. It should work now.
From there on is sorta self explained on the other guides. Type in terminal
chmod +x ienew
chmod +x iunew
ienew will then run, may take a few minutes, if it says anything like already being erased, thats fine whatever.
Now its time for the testpoints/iunew. Type in:
sleep 20; iunew
This will give you 20seconds to setup the test points before iunew runs. Obviously if you are fast enough, can save yourself the time sitting there and change the number to 10 or something.
If it says something like "please connect test points" you didnt get the test points correctly. So do it again.
If you were having the hang at "Spamming AT" that should be fixed now because of you deleting the com file and erasing the baseband.
It show now ask you to hit any key and enter to download the nor file.
hit any key and hit enter.
It will say "downloading nor", just let it sit there, it sometimes can take up to 10mins from what Ive seen. Dont rush it. Just let it go.
After its done you will need to upload the baseband back onto the file.
So if you downloaded the bootloader downgrade package like i said, you will type this.
bbupdater -f 111.fls -e 111.eep
This will take awhile, maybe another 10mins. Let it sit for atleast 10mins. If nothing looks like anything is happening, meaning it just froze after you hit enter and nothing else happened underneath it; just let it sit there for 5-10mins, then if still nothing, hit the home button. For some reason this happened to me, and after i hit the home button after a few seconds, it refreshed itself and everything seemed fine. It of course took me home, and then i went back to terminal, typed in
and now it was able to successfully ping my baseband and tell me I had 04.01 firmware and 3.9bootloader.
This is just a rough post of what everyother guide tells you to do. The main importance is if you are having the "did you erase the flash first?" or "is this com being used by another program?" you need to delete the com.apple.CommCenter.plist file, and restart your phone. That solved all my problems.
huh?When i tried the tutorials it looks very easy at 1st but when im in the middle of my process it makes me nervous coz we dont have full conffidence when ever pipol around here are getting messed up with there phones specially the baseband area. im goin to withdraw my HW procedure before anything else happen.
ill just have to wait for the Latest Software Unlock
Happy with my Turbo sim
I cannot restore 1.0.2 because iTunes freezes on "Waiting iPhone"

If that doesnt work. Try turning the phone on/off. Restarting your comp, changing usb outlet. If all else fails, if possible, simply try it on a different computer.
For some reason on my personal computer I cannot restore this one phone from 1.1.3 to 1.1.1, it just gives me the 1604 error. But if I go on one of my other back up computers it will work.

iTunes gives me always the same error (1011).
I tried with 1.0.2, 1.1.1, 1.1.2, 1.1.3 firmwares.
Both DFU methods (trough iBrickr and manual) gives the 1011 when trying up/downgrade.
How can I put the Phone in Restore mode ?
(sorry for my english)
I have followed your guide on your website, but no luck.
I have no error messages during the process, bbupdater -v gives me 3.9BL, and anySim ran fine, at the end it said, that the phone is unlocked, but it isnt, something went wrong...
I can't use my SIM, all calls fail, I can see my carrier name in the upper left corner, but no calls go out, no calls come in (if I call my SIM from an other phone it doesnt ring, I can leave only a message.)
I have tried it with two phones already, no luck. The phones are fine, wifi is working, IMEI is correct, BL is 3.9 (reported by bbupdater -v and bbinfo), carrier is detected, but the no calls in/out.
What can be the problem?
Because bbupdater and bbinfo both reported 3.9BL, I will try a 1.1.2 restore, than DFU and back to 1.1.1 and baseband downgrade. I hope it will solve this issue.
I wish your process would work because it would speed up the whole process!
On the second phone I tried to run Baseband Downgrade, but no go.

Did your phone work directly after running bbupdater -f 111.fls -e 111.eep and unlocking with anySIM? Because someone told me that even though phone appered to work, and anysim unlocked fine, and sim-card was accepted, but he didn't get signal. But when he restored to 1.1.1 again, he got signal.

restoring with 1.1.2, and back to 1.1.1 and doing baseband downgrade and restoring again with 1.1.1 and running anySim (again with successfull unlock message)
did not solve my problem.

I followed the procedure and I got till i got the message:
