    Default iPhone 4 at 4.3.2 (8H7)

    Asking for some advice please, I am confused about under what conditions an iPhone can and can not be unlocked or jailbrocken.

    I have this iPhone4 that was recently activated with Rogers by someone else and it is currently at version 4.3.2 (8H7), the model is MC605C and modem firmware is 04.10.01
    I have bought it and followed the steps on iClarified "How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 4 Using PwnageTool (Mac) [4.3.2]" and after automatically creating the custom f/w and restore it via iTunes, the phone is working but with the sim card inserted, it is not recognized, it shows no provider, no tel number, nothing.
    If I restore it to factory, it works fine. I have tried twice to build custom f/w and no go with any of the versions.
    Can someone give me a hint or advice please on how to make this phone work with my own f/w so I would be able to use Cydia and other stuff?

    Did you use normal or expert mode in pwnagetool.

    In expert mode there is an option to activate - this must be off

    In normal/easy mode - pwnagetool asks if you can activate the phone normally via iTunes. I can't recall the exact wording of this question but - you CAN activate normally via iTunes and you should keep this in mind when you answer.

    The iClarified guide is more focused on people who need to unlock via ultrasn0w

    Thank you very much Olethros.
    After all this procedure, will I be able to use the phone with a another carrier, for instance when traveling to Europe and use one of the providers from there?

    The procedure I explained will only allow you to jailbreak and use the phone on your original network (rogers)

    As you have baseband 04.10.01, it's not possible to unlock via ultrasn0w.

    I am pretty sure Rogers offers official unlocking (probably for a fee based on how much time is remaining on your contract), right now - this is the ONLY way you can use your phone on other networks (eg Europe).

    There is always a chance that ultrasn0w will be updated to work with your baseband - it is extremely unlikely that this will occur before the release of the next iPhone in september/october 2011

    Thank you Olethros, you gave me so much useful info here!

    But that sucks... big time. I bought the phone from someone that activated the phone through Rogers so I have no contract with them in regards with this phone. I am not even sure if a Canadian company like Rogers would ever offer such unlocking service. No other options till fall 2011?

    Rogers does offer Authorized unlocking. Talk to the original owner of the phone and Rogers.

    Coming back after two months...

    My IPhone 4
    modem firmware is 04.10.01
    baseband 04.10.01

    I have read that there is an unlock now using Ultrasn0w. Is it true?

    Moreover, there are websites who offers unlock online for $25. I was asked to enter the phone's IMEI and I got the message the unlock is available.

    Or what is the proper procedure to unlock a previously Roger activated, please?

    This is NOT true. Ultrasn0w only unlocks iPhone 4 phones on baseband 1.59.00

    do not trust third party websites - especially those that only charge $25 - these are likely a scam.

    Talk to Rogers directly.
