    Default Help! IMEI 0049... after AnySIM 1.1 problem

    Hi, I'm going mad trying to fix an iPhone that has the cursed 0049.. IMEI.

    It's a US iPhone that came with 1.1.1. I've unlocked a few phones for friends/colleagues with no problems but, on this occasion, AnySIM 1.1 gave an error starting the commcenter. I re-ran it successfully but then noticed that the SIM was rejected and the IMEI changed.

    I've tried virginizing the baseband for 1.1.1, downgrading to 1.0.2 and virginizing, following numerous methods (from BigBoss, unlock.no), and even paying for IPSF (doesn't run because it can't see the license associated with the original IMEI).

    Reading a few threads on here, I'm guessing my seczone/secpack (I'm not sure of the difference) is corrupted. Is there anything I can do to rebuild it?

    Most folks I've seen with the same problem got it from upgrading rather than just running AnySIM.

    Can anyone help or give me hope? All suggestions welcome and appreciated.

    Run IPSF again without the SIM card in it - I know it says to run with the SIM but it works without and the phone transmits the true IMEI number back to their server for validation.

    Thanks for your reply but I've tried IPSF without the SIM (it actually says to remove it anyway) and it still won't work.

    I've read some people saying that their 0049 IMEI is only displayed with the SIM in the phone but, for me, I have 0049 whether the SIM is in or not.

    i think, if u install BSD systems from installer, it will repair the seczone, i read it somewhere...
    in my opiniion, u should shift-restore using itunes to 1.1.1, then jailbreak normally, then install the BSD subsystem, and BB downgrader..
    ull find the easy steps on how to do it on iphone.unlock.no under downgrading..
    ull need to restore>downgrade firmware 1.1.1> jailbreak>downgrade basband> restore>firmware 1.1.1>jailbreak> anySim..
    hope id helped u and urr doing fine.

    Where did you read that installing BSD subsystem repaired the seczone?

    Anyway, the phone in question has had 1.0.2 and 1.1.1 restored on it a whole bunch of times whilst I've tried different methods. Right now it has the BSD Subsystem on it and 1.1.1. Downgrading to 1.0.2, flashing the baseband, virginizing etc have not had any effect.

    Thanks for your suggestion anyway...

    Try revirginizing firmware 1.1.1 and then install AppSnapp through jailbreakme.com, unlock with SimFree 1.8. Check iphoneSimFree.com for more information. I got same problem at you and it fixed. Work on 1.1.1. Good luck!!!

    Good to hear that IPSF fixed your 0049 problem. I followed your suggestion but SimFree complains about not having a license (which I have paid for, and is linked to the phone's real IMEI). This happens with or without the SIM installed.

    Did your phone display the correct IMEI with the SIM removed or did you always see 0049?
