    When I mod my iPhone, I put my SIM card into another stable phone (just in case it dies and I need a phone), and inversely when I mod that phone.

    Both times I tried the MMS mod, I didn't see the camera icon in Messaging, even when I rebooted. Now that it's happened to me twice, I assume the problem is you need a SIM card in the phone.

    Nope. The problem is that the iPhone needs to reconfigure itself for the new "situation". Normally there is no standard way to do it. Some things will be reconfigured on a reboot some will *not*. In particular things that are related to the cell carrier will not be reconfigured.

    What happens is that the iPhone saves the identification of the "current" carrier. If on the next restart the carrier is the same, several reconfiguration steps are bypassed.

    The only way to force a reconfiguration is to insert a valid SIM card of an alternate carrier, wait a while for the reconfig, then return to the original SIM card. This will cause 2 reconfigs and works.

    This is well known since fw 1.1.2, but very few people understand why. The reason is simply: Apple did not designed the iPhone for people to change the SIM card and swap operators. That said, the configuration code tries to persist some configuration state information to avoid doing things twice. So, to make the iPhone aware of some changes (like APNs, MMS settings, etc), the only thing I know to work is the old SIM swap routine.

    Ok, this is a minor release; and maybe the last one, provided no bugs get reported. Changes:
    - attempt to solve APN type-mask in a less intrusive way
    - better(?) automatic installation script
    - (minimalist) documentation included

    People happy with the last version of the patch shouldn't be bothered with this update.
    The md5sum of the archive is d18a9811bdaecd86818dfee9129f1027
    Unzip and make sure you read 00README.txt twice, before you attempt anything.

    More info can be found here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/f207/76038-11.htm#post468787 and here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/f207/76038-13.htm#post470015, although may be slightly outdated now.

    Thanks a lot, it does work. But there is a bug in the readme, the BT patch need to have file named fixed.

    Other than that you are the man!

    It seems that your patch also fixes the battery drain with the mms patch. Do you use another method to enable mms than the original mms patch?

    Initially, MMS is enabled for all devices. But then, CommCenter goes through a series of initialization routines. M68 (aka iPhone 2G) init disables MMS, while MuxerApp init does not. The original mms patch just chooses MuxerApp instead of M68. In other words, it performs initialization pertaining to other kind of hardware. However, there were two concerns: 1. I really don't know what MuxerApp hardware is; 2. there are a few more differences between M68 and MuxerApp init.

    So, yes, trying to minimize side-effects, my patch takes a different approach: it changes MMS disabler into Tethering enabler during M68 init. It should be cleaner, as it uses the routine designed for iPhone 2G.

    I don't really know if battery drain was caused by something MuxerApp init does (or doesn't do). But I am glad my version of the hack fixed your problems -- if that's the case.

    After testing your patch 24h I can confirm it's solves the battery drain when MMS is enabled.

    Just a guess: Maybe the MuxerApp tries to do things the 2G doesn't support. It keeps trying, and the battery drains faster.

    Also tethering works perfect with usb & bluetooth.

    Thx!! Really a nice patch!

    I just did a complete wipe on my phone and applied your patch, and gosh..its the end all be all fix! =) A2DP, MMS, Tethering (USB and Bluetooth), and all of them working perfectly in one fell swoop!

    One quirk I have though, how can we enable data usage? I'm a bit unclear as to what plist values to edit to allow tethering data usage in the settings, and the tethering session usage in realtime as you're tethering (next to the text where the status bar is glowing blue). If anyone could clarify where I can obtain that, it'd be most ideal! Otherwise, many thanks for a very solid patch that makes what the iPhone 2g should've been.
