Unlock Failure: Couldn't locate bytes to pitch
Help! I've tried to run AnySim to unlock my new iPhone, but it ended with an unlock failure message. after that i couldn't repeat the process. firmware 1.02 with iTunes 7.4.
Zibri's part-time barrister
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.
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?
He means that u should do a virgin restore
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):
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:
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!
