Never post your IMEI number online buddy, remove it now. I could easily have reported it as a stolen device and have it blacklisted, or, as it is a valid IMEI and I even know what device it is meant for, install it on another device that has been blacklisted.

I'm now starting to bang my head against the wall. I ave just bought an Orange locked I9305 which I only wanted to unlock to use on another network. Unfortunately I couldn't unlock it as it came with 4.1.2. I read that I had to downgrade to 4.1.1 which is where the problems started. I followed the instructions at the start of this post and made a backup of my IMEI / NV Data which went well. I then installed Odin and tried to install
Product Code: GT-I9305TADEVR (4.1.1) (EE UK)
PDA: XXALI5
PHONE: BVALI5
CSC: EVRALI5
Released: 17/09/2012
from the Pre-Rooted / Original Stock Odin Packages! thread.
I thought this had gone well but it got stuck rebooting at the Samsung screen after the start up swirling screen for at least an hour. I then tried to install the
Product Code: GT-I9305TADEVR (4.1.1) (EE UK)
PDA: XXALK3
PHONE: XXALK2
CSC: EVRALI5
This also got stuck and after another hour I tried to install a stock rom from http://samsung-updates.com/ which was I9305XXALI5_I9305EVRALI5_I9305BVALI5_HOME.tar.md5
This worked and it installed 4.1.1 but when I went to unlock the phone it didn't have any of the menus and when I checked the IMEI it said null / null.
I then though that this isn't too bad as I can just restore the IMEI but when I tried to connect through QPST it sees the port (Com3) but cannot see the phone so I cannot do the restore.
I have tried re-installing QPST after deleting anything in the registry that mentions it, I have re-installed the samsung drivers, I have flashed Param_Bin_I9305.tar.md5 with odin, have rooted properly as there was no superuser app with both busybox and I9305 clockwork mod. These worked ok as I was able to install triangle away and use it and have supersu in my apps.

Does anyone have a clue as to what I can try next as thinking of going back to HTC as I have had there phones since windows and never had a problem rooting and unlocking them

I finally sorted it as it must be a problem with the Pre-Rooted / Original Stock Odin Packages. I finally got it to work by flashing a different kernel, I then unlocked the phone to any network and flashed a 4.1.2 Pre-Rooted / Original Stock Odin Package where it lost all its IMEI again. Flashed a new kernel and all working as I wanted it too as it's now unlocked on 4.1.2.

Has anyone else experienced problems where it states backup failed due to, "SPC given could not unlock the phone. The phone will not respond for 10 seconds."? Thanks everyone.

The command in the keypad doesn't work & I'm using CM 10.1 unofficial build so no root-issues AFAIK.

oh and here is the result of the first step...just so if it has anything to do with the error on 2nd step:

I get the same issue with my unrooted stock SGS-I9305.

First I thought it was because KIES was still active in the background, but after killing KIES, all ADB sessions and uninstalling the drivers / ports via Device Manager, exiting (and killing) the QPST Server / Service and then retrying all the steps from page 1, I still get the same "No Phone" in the QPST application and EFS Explorer crashes when I click on "Connect".

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
LV.
