To restore it has an example.. Do i have to do the same for each comand line.. If its the same lines that would back up and restore. They should have the restore commands complete. Its pita to do on cell..
You can do it from a command prompt on your pc. You don't have to do it from a terminal on your phone. With you phone booted up and connected to your pc's usb. Just issue the command:

adb shell

Then follow the rest of the commands, one line at a time with a return after each command.

You'll need adb on your pc. Google 15 second adb install xda.

The beginning of your post is way too funny. Thanks for taking your time to make it easier for people.
I used the OTHER Original thread and although it wasn't as informative, it was very easy to do.
I did mine in the first go, but I did not dump the original EFS. No big deal.
I also turned SHA256 back to ON before you Flash another ROM and Modem. Not sure if it was needed but I did it anyway.

You need the Proper stock rooted ROM and Radio for THAT OTHER phone, however the procedure itself is not much different.

Thanks! After spending almost a week trying to get my unlock code from AT&T I unlocked my phone in about 20 minutes. The only issue I encountered, was that unlocked phone would not reboot - rebooting resulted in the phone just sitting there forever with the black screen. Reflashing ROM fixed that.
