Exclamation [Q] Can't change MID again

Hey guys! I was hoping I could get some help here, I would say I have moderate experience in this area but..

I was changing my Model ID. I got the ENG H-BOOT zip and edited the android-info.txt to my own device. I noticed some things different from the last time I did this. Instead of the fuzzy grey screen it actually had the bootloader showing up. It was the ENG bootloader and was a low version H-BOOT. I then issued the command:

Code:
fastboot oem writemid PN07120
after that I changed my CID and then proceeded to use the BrightStar US RUU for the Developer Edition. It told me:
Code:
FAILED (remote: 41 model id check fail)
Realizing my mistake, I made the zip again with the eng hboot and replaced the necessary variables. ie. modelid: PN07120 but when I try to flash it in RUU mode it still gives me the:
Code:
FAILED (remote: 41 model id check fail)
I keep on trying different combinations but to no avail.

I'd be very grateful if anyone could lend a helping hand.
