Using AT&T SIM with iPhoneTool - restorable?
Basically, I signed up with AT&T a couple months ago, before I bought an iPhone and was using a HTC 8525. 1 1/2 weeks ago I purchased my iPhone. I wanted to use it with my current contract, but not be forced to pay for the iPhone data plan @ $60/month vs my current plan which is $39/month. So I just needed to be able to activate my phone with the AT&T SIM from my 8525 phone. I used the following method to activate it:
After installing the active AT&T SIM from my 8525 into the iPhone, I successfully activated it using the above method. Then I used iNdependence_v1.2.1a_bin.dmg to jailbreak it, but nothing more. Once I returned it to the jail, my iPhone began to work with the SIM from my 8525. After which I installed AppTap.
I am currently running firmware version 1.0.2 and have never attempted to update to 1.1.1 as I would wait patiently until I knew what the outcome would be first.
At this point, I just want to put the phone back to the original out-of-box state and update to 1.1.1 and activate with AT&T. The 3rd party apps are not important to me (after trying many) and I now think having the iPhone data plan would be fine.
Seeing how I never actually unlocked the phone, I should be able to restore to the original out-of-box state, right? Can anyone help confirm this ? I just don't want to risk bricking my iPhone if this isn't going to work.
i did that i only used ibricker and it bricked mine up so i wouldnt do anything :| right now i am tryin to viring ize my phone been trying for about 2 hrs almost 3...
As long as you didn't "touch" the baseband, you should be fine.
I would however do a full 1.0.2 recovery (instructions in the forum) to make sure you put your iPhone back to a "virgin" 1.0.2 state before updating.
I can't give you a 100% guarantee that you won't have problems after updating to FW 1.1.1 but chances are pretty good that everything is going to work fine.
Just make sure you NEVER EVER used AnySIM or something similar because if you have a modded baseband fw, you very likely won't be able to use your phone after the update to 1.1.1.
I appreciate your help. My baseband shouldn't have been changed as I didn't need to since I'm with AT&T. However, this is my Baseband version: 03.14.08_G
Is that right/ok?
Thanks again! -Bob
