Step Twenty Nine
You should now backup your iPhone unlock ticket in case this method is ever blocked. You can find instructions on how to backup the unlock ticket here.


IMPORTANT:
If push notifications stop after this process, you can restore then with the Clear Push utility in SAM, followed by connecting to iTunes.

Your phone will work normally with your SIM card and that SIM card ONLY since we have tricked iTunes to think that ICCID is one of the intended carrier's. The phone can be rebooted and connected to iTunes freely without losing the "unlock", at least for now.

A big thanks to Loktar_Sun and Laforet for their contributions!
