    Default TurboSIM & 1.1.1 Compatibility - Definitive answer needed

    Was wondering if there's a definitive answer to whether of not the 1.1.1 update will be compatible for those of us using the TurboSIM unlock method.

    I have software unlocked my iPhone (original, complicated dev team method) but prior to that I was using the TSIM method (IMEI method). I still have the TSIM and am wondering if it's worth a shot applying the 1.1.1 update.

    One of the main problems is getting the phone reactivated after the update however there are some rumors on this forum of an activation method that might work with 1.1.1. See :
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/show...?t=8593&page=3

    I also don't know if it would be a good idea to relock the phone using Erica's method prior to attempting this. If the update bricks your iPhone by checking to see if the baseband has been modded then it would necessary but I don't know if it does.

    Anyone in the same boat as me and willing to give it a try or shall I be the first lamb to the slaughter

    I have a turbosim but have not upgraded to 1.1.1 yet. I activated legitimately originally so am wondering if I am better off in terms of upgrading. Anyone know if it should work if one originally activated via Apple/AT&T?

    Well I have a TurboSim unlocked phone which has never been software unlocked, so I'd say its baseband etc should be pretty intact.

    I'm not willing to try this update until more is known though, I really don't think you will be able to activate it once applied (even if the TurboSim might work once it is activated). Plus you'll lose all your 3rd party apps until a new jailbreak is found.

    Not worth it for me, but if you want to try I'll be very interested to hear how you get along!

    I would like to know as well.. although even if it works the loss of any 3rd party appz makes it not worth it in any way.

    The 1.1.1 upgrade returns the phone to an unactivated state, which means the phone wont work without activation.

    So until an activation bypass is achieved you wont be able to use the turboSIM.

    okay, what if u got the iphone and update it to 1.1.1 and have the orginal att sim so the phone still works.. But then you pit a turbo sim in there.. Will the sim still work? Like u get a new 1.1.1 iphone and sign up with att... Now that the phone is running, u cancel your att contract but before you do that, you run you turbo sim in it? Will that method work???

    no new jailbreak so you can't get the phone activated. but what about....

    activate the phone using a $10 prepaid AT&T sim and plug in the TurboSIM with your own provider SIM

    Just to confirm what others have experienced here - I have an TurBoSIM phone (which has never been unlocked using software unlock methods so baseband etc is in orginal form). I updated to FW 1.1.1 and low and behold - it asks for activation again.

    I connect to iTunes and it first used to bring up the AT&T phone plan select page to activate phone, now each time it simply says connot establish secure connection with servor plz check SSL and TLS or something is enabled in Internet Options in Control Panel (which it is).

    So - in summary, it's bricked until an activation bypass is found (i hope that the TurbOSIM will continue to work after that).

    Manj27:

    Was your iPhone a legit AT&T activation ? Or did you use one of the many activation hacks?

    I am wondering if legit activations need to reactivate

    Cheers
