    try restoring to 1.02 that sometimes works
    or
    put the app uictrl on the phone using ibricker its in the repository
    start app and load the commcenter

    or if neither of the above work

    search the forums for virgin restore and follow the guide
    involves manually flashing the baseband with .fls and .eep
    then reunlocking
    i would use fast-unlock.pxl
    http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=6637 this is the good guide

    question regarding the virgin restore
    when i restore it in itunes will it update it to 1.1.1 firmware because for some reason my itunes updated itself

    is there a itunes downlaod that is for 1.02??

    and also regarding the limit on unlock attempts what happens if i reached that limit is there a way to bypass it??

    ipsf is the only one sofar that resets the lock attempts

    when restoring hold shift(pc) or option(mac) and choose the following restore image

    restore by holding down home on the phone and connecting to the computer itunes will start and ask you to restore then hold shift and click restore

    I had this same problem. I successfully unlocked my phone with anysim the first time. Then I decided to restore my Iphone and start all over. Then I used anysim again, and It gave me that "cannot locate bytes" error. After a lot of figuring things out. I finally figured how to fix it. But this is only if you're phone was previously unlocked. Doesn't hurt to try it out, it's broke anyways right?

    Restore your iphone again, with Firmware 1.02.

    Jailbreak it with iBrickr if you're on a PC.

    Upload "lockdownd" to "/usr/libexec/"

    Restart iPhone. Hopefully your phone works now.

    you do not need to run an unlock after restoring 1.02 it will stay unlocked
