Successfully 1.1.2 OOTB by SuperSIM, but questions
Hello SuperSIM guru
I can successfully unlock OOTB 1.1.2 using SuperSIM following this thread http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=2215; thanks a lot to the guys for those efforts.
However, I have something to ask just want to make it clear because I try to do something different from the thread in order to make it 'cheap'. If I can find some solution out I believe we can do this method < $30.
First, I can get cheap SIM Card Reader from local accessory shop; not big deal, cost ~$7-8, but it can do only the scanning and playing around the contact number, SMS, etc. I can use it to find IMSI, ICCID, and my Ki successfully. However, no PIC programming capability.
The next to get rid of is the once-use programmer. The SIM Card Reader + IC Prog cannot detect the blank silvercard so I make the simple one of Dex's silvercard programmer http://users.net.yu/~dejan/. I struckled for a while during attemps to unlock but eventually found somewhere telling that Dex's programmer cannot work with IC Prog. I then did this; just do PIC programming using IC Prog + Dex's programmer. Even I used the configured HEX files to do this I cannot successfully unlock. Then I turn to just put the PIC programmed silvercard into the SIM Card Reader and connect to SIM EMU again. When I read directly from the silvercard this time SIM EMU can detect the card, but all fields are empty!!!!!. My hope was enlightened and I put every numbers in again and directly write to card, not to the files anymore. After that is the BINGO; I can unlock.
I review back to my process and see that even the Dex's programmer is cheap like nothing and it's clamed not work well with IC Prog but I can finally figure out to make it done. Now when it's the time for the others they just encounter how to make the Dex's programmer by themselves. It's not for Mr.Joe Somebody.
That's my first question... why can't we use the same SIM Card Reader to do PIC programming through IC Prog?????
Do we really need a programmer that work with IC Prog?????
What's actually this SuperSIM method do? Is it just a simple multiple SIM in one card method? If it is so I can find a lot cheaper dual SIM kit (need to cut both SIM cards). Is there any switching mechanism inside SuperSIM????
