Try to do the nv_data.bin method.
You won't find the md5 value in the log (Samsung patched that a while ago), instead, run this on a Linux machine (or in the Android terminal):
(cat nv_data.bin; echo -n Samsung_Android_RIL) | md5sum

I want to SIM-Unlock it so I can use any networks sim on it.
Samsung updated the efs in one of the 4.3 roms and above. Your 4.1 rom doesn't recognise it as the 4.1 rom cannot read a V2 efs and since you started out with a v2 efs you cannot do anything with Rom versions below 4.3.
Restore your original rom or install a custom 4.4 rom regain your imei and either pay for a code or contact your carrier. This app is useless in your case..

I actually went into my local town, went into one of those "phone unlocking/repair" shops and paid 15 to get it done. Was done in 30minutes and works beautifully.

Using GiffGaff on a Orange Samsung Galaxy S3 running Cm11.
