VERY UNLIKELY. What's more likely (sadly) is that you have a hardware issue with the SIM connections, or maybe the phone itself. Try carefully repositioning the SIM (and double-check it's round the right way!). Some people have reported that padding the SIM out with a few layers of tape helps it seat better, too. Check all the connections are clean and not damaged, too.

Hi Arr Too, thanks for your help, i'll try your advice later. The point is, i hadn't any issues, i put in my german sim, then entering the unlock code and then bad connection :D maybe the antenna itself is broken?! could that be possible? the phone was in use for 5 days before unlocking...without any problems

hey all, followed this post from the beginning and have to say: fantastic stuff!!

a big thanks you steven and everyone who contributed to the guide.

really struggled to find an easy to use guide that fully explained everything

found it hard to follow at first due to me being a complete newbie... :/

used this and installed the modaco 2.2 alpha3 (thanks btw paul!)

works like a charm!!!

thanks all!

When i did the TPT of the Hungarian 512Fix, in my phone there were no letters or anything just a black screen. (thought i should mention it for you to write it up there cause not everyone is getting what we see here in the video)

Interesting that could be 2 things.

1 - the hardware (TFT) makes a difference
2 - the updater software is different

I wounder if when you run it again it will show the text (if the update, updates the updater !)

I have added a warning that users may not see text

Hi arr too, you were right, was a hardware issue, tried your tape trick, now celly tells me no SIM inside, think there was a bad braze point, and now its a broken one :D but the important thing is, i know the problem, no more thinking about mistakes while flashing or anything.

*EDIT*
one of the golden pins was a bit out of shape, now the phone finds my sim, but still with connection problems.
can i check the antenna with a terminal code or whatever?

*EDIT2*
Settings -> About Phoe -> Status -> Signal Strength says: -99dBm 7 asu, the signal strength in the status bar says just one bar and no data transfer

Like to say thanks for the great guide i have used it twice now to do phones and it's nice an easy to follow, also like to point out one thing just incase it is an issue, the command line for the md5sum check & flashing clockwork states the img file is called "recovery_clockwork_2.5.1.8_blade.img" but the one i downloaded (from here) is different, the one i got is "recovery-clockwork-blade-2.5.1.8.img" not a big prob as i noticed it was different when checking my files so adjusted the it to match but just thought that someone who is new might not realise or struggle for a while with it so thought i would mention it :D

Anyway thanks again for the great guide :P
