    is "Couldn't locate bytes to PATCH" ...

    your phone has already been unlocked. Just stop the Commcente, reflash the firmware (e.g. per bbupdater -e -f etc.), restart the CommCenter and re-run iUnlock_reloaded.

    that's all.

    Well, it seems that I am a little greenhorn on this. Can you be more specific on how i can reflash the firmware? What is bbupdater?

    If you get the "couldn't locate the bytes to patch" error and you activated with a different cingular/att sim, you need to do the following steps:

    1. Upload the following to a directory (I used /unlock):
    bbupdater
    ICE03.14.08_G.eep
    ICE03.14.08_G.fls

    2. SSH to the iphone (I need to install openSSH using ibrickr 0.8 and used putty as my ssh client) and yes you need wi-fi working.

    3. From SSH prompt type the following:
    cd /unlock
    chmod +x bbupdater
    launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
    ./bbupdater -f *.fls -e *.eep
    launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
    4. Exit putty
    5. Run anySIM from the springboard
    6. Run PCACAY Activate.bat (if I didn't do this itunes reported an invalid IMEI
    7. Reboot phone
    8. Optional: run iBrickr and remove openSSH and/or anySIM.

    I found all the files from other posts in the forums (yes including the .eep and .fls files)

    or you can use the mobile terminal app instead of ssh

    look for restore in a search for more info!
    good luck
