Unhappy [Q] No Lockscreen/Power Menu, Amongst Other Problems...

Okay, so I've been pretty flash-happy the past few days, especially with the release to UCLD2 and stuff, but after the last few flashes I've noticed that I've lost my power menu and my lockscreen does not activate. I've already searched around and tried many methods of fixing it, but I may have been digging my hole deeper...
I've tried pasting keystr into /efs/imei, but no for some reason when I try creating a file in /efs/imei in Root Explorer it doesn't even show up...
I also tried using the terminal method, but whenever I type the line "echo -n ON > /efs/imei/keystr" it returns an Input/Output Error.
I'm really confused on what to do, files seem to be not appearing where they should be and I'm kinda worried, I like this phone so much! If anybody can help me out, I'd be greatly appreciated, and I can provide any files/info that is needed.

sorry x, I think ur wrong on this one. I had the issue and it was very frustrating. OP, I recommend the following. Odin back to stock and root 2.3.5. Then use the keystr method from within root explorer. Make sure it sticks then flash ics

That was from the note radio when that happened to you?

I had flashed the note radio, since I was having trouble with UCLD2... That's probably what did it. I'm gonna give icenight's method a shot and see how it goes.
