    Default [1.1.2 OTB] UK o2 and tesco pay as you go sim cards not working!

    Ok i have downgraded to 1.1.1 and jailbroken 1.1.2. all the 3rd party apps work but the phone says my sim card is invalid with both 02 and tesco sim cards!. I followed the guide perfectly.

    Any ideas?

    It all depends on which guide you followed. You need to bypass the activation by installing the modified 'lockdown' file. Believe me it works I have done it over a dozen times.

    ahh that would make more sense. I did not download a modified lockdown. Just the standard 1.1.2 Jailbreak package.

    Where can i find this file?


    I followed the [OTB] 1.1.2 UK iphone tut which is sticked


    I bought the phone on ebay and it does not have the ORGINAL UNACTIVATED sim card will this have anything to do with it?

    no, sim shouldnt make a difference
    you need to ssh onto the iphone, then replace the lockdownd, its here:
    usr/libexec/

    heres the lockdownd:

    replace the $ with an s

    then restart phone

    stoke1863 Once you have got hold of the modified lockdown file, you also need to download a copy of WinSCP and follow these instructions.

    1. Open WinSCP and enter the IP address of your iPhone with username "root" and password "alpine"
    2. In WinSCP, keep hitting the top folder in the dierctories until it brings you to the directory with the "usr" folder in it
    3. Open the "usr" folder and then open the libexec "folder"
    4. There will be a folder called "lockdownd" in there, rename it to "backuplockdownd112"
    5. Now, get the new lockdownd you downloaded it earlier and upload it to this folder
    6. Right click on the new lockdownd file and click "Properties"
    7. In the bottom half, make sure that all the R's and all the X's are ticked and NONE of the W's are ticked, it should say "555" underneath
    8. When done, exit WinSCP and restart the iPhone

    If you did everything correct above then your iPhone will restart and go to the springboard, you will have Installer and SSH Icons on your desktop.

    Now you need to put in a Pre-Pay O2 Sim or an O2 sim that did not come with the iPhone

    grr still no luck. Here is my procedure.


    1) i have 1.1.2 iphone that is saying my sim is not compatable with my sim card (on all 3 sim cards o2 that came with iphone. o2 PAYG and tesco PAYG)

    2) put the iphone in a restore state open itunes and press restore.


    3) downgrade to 1.1.1 by putting the phone in restore state opening itunes holding shift and then fidning the 1.1.1 resore file.


    4) use ibrikr to kick the iphone out of recovery state.


    5) Add jailbreakme as a favourite and download appsnap. (sim card still not working at this point

    6) iphone now is activated at 1.1.1 (sim still not working) download that tweak for 1.1.1 from installer

    7) Upgrade to 1.1.2 in itunes


    8) use jailbrake.jar (install ssh) i get an error saying the phone is not connected (it is) i press ok but the program still jailbrakes my iphone.

    9) the program says it worked and my iphone resests three times. I can now use the iphone but it still says all three of my sim cards "incorrect SIM This iphone must be used with an approved SIM"


    The box i had was 02 branded on the back is there a way to check what country my iphone is from? Maybe the ebay seller stitched me up?
