iPhone 100% Unlocked " TurboSIM Card "
Using a Turbo-SIM " http://www.bladox.com/shop.php ", without any additional hardware, a SIM card reader/writer for instance, you can unlock your iPhone — any carrier — phone, SMS, GPRS, all functional on any GSM network. I just ordered my Turbo-SIM so I cannot personally confirm this method to work, yet. Although word circulating the virtual streets say it’s good to go.
Software you need:
http://www.iphone-hacks.com/download.php?id=30 — you need the binary, “turbo-app”
http://www.iphone-hacks.com/download.php?id=31 — you need the “applesaft.trb” file
First, your phone must be activated (with the AT&T SIM), jailbreaked, and with SSH and vim. Refer to previous tutorials to do that
- Download the port of Bladox utilities on your computer, extract it on your computer (you need the binary file turbo-app)
- Download AppleSaft 0.92 from Bladox, extract it on your computer (you need the .trb file)
- Turn on your phone with Turbo SIM + AT&T subscription
- Disable CommCenter - ssh to your phone, vim /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/
for example add it just after these lines, already present in the file
If you don’t like vim, you can do this modification on your desktop computer (iPhuc/iPhoneInterface getfile, modify the file, and putfile)
vim ultra light survival kit
i : insert mode
ESC : command mode (from insert mode)
dd : delete the current line (in command mode)
:w! : save (in command mode)
:q! : quit (in command mode)
- Copy turbo-app to your phone (for example in /opt/bladox)
- Copy applesaft.trb to your phone (for example in /tmp)
- ssh to your phone, set the executable permission to turbo-app (chmod
a+x /opt/bladox/turbo-app) and run it with /opt/bladox/turbo-app /tmp/applesaft.trb. It should take approximately 30 seconds and you shouldn’t see any error. Please panic if you see one
- Reenable CommCenter - ssh to your phone, vim /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/
com.apple.CommCenter.plist and delete the lines you added previously
- Go into Settings/Phone/SIM Applications/Apple Saft and choose Set
- Turn off your phone
- Turn on your phone with Turbo SIM + your subscription and test
Check back for a full report (and cleaner tutorial) once my Turbo-SIM arrives. Mad props to everyone responsible for achieving this unlock!
quick question. Will this method work with any empty sim?? I have a contact working at my local network carrier, so I can get an empty simcard.
This is NOT a full unlock, the phone itself is still locked, it is just a way of fooling the phone into thinking it has the AT&T sim in, the phone itself is still locked!
Plus there is already a thread for this, so look before you start creating threads!
YES. It works with every simcard, regardless if it's V1/V2/V3/UMTS or what so ever....

Do you guys actually READ the forum BEFORE you post? Just curious.
The Turbo SIM method has been discussed for a couple of days now in the Supersim section of the iPhone forum.
PLEASE: read first, post after. Otherwise we end up with the same stuff over and over again, flooding the forums with useless posts. Thanks.
