Here is my history,

I was trying to unlock S5830, so I rooted and placed a custom rom (MaclawStudio ROM Final 3), kernel 2.6.37.6-maclawstudio.

I found my unlock key and when the phone asked for it, I went head! Problem is that I cant get any network service. And I know that the unlock key was correct (tryed two methods a hex method and an app method).

So I'm trying to go back to the stock rom, with odin 4.38 (w7 compatibility (im running w8.1 64x) and with admin rights) one package.

But my laptop recognizes the phone except when in download mode. Can anyone help me? I just need to really unlock the phone... thanks ppl.

Sadly Samsung drivers and odin doesn't work well on Windows 8 atleast for Galaxy Ace. Try flashing stock rom on a Windows XP or 7 pc. It should work. Hope I Helped
