    Default Capturing 3GS iBEC and iBSS with only a T-mobile SIM

    iClarified has posted the following:

    How to Capture Your iPhone 3GS iBEC and iBSS (Mac)

    How can I properly perform this if I have a 3GS with only T-Mobile service at the moment... I can put the phone into DFU mode and get that portion of the steps done (iBSS) but not the beginning part (iBEC) as my phone is unactivated... any thoughts? Can I use someone else's AT&T SIM to perform this?

    Thanks for the clarification. I just want to be prepared for the JB and then the Unlock.

    Smile

    Easiest way is

    put the device in DFU

    open a terminal and type in the following :
    while sleep 1; do cp -R /tmp/PersonalizedRestoreBundle.* ~/Desktop/; done


    then do the otion-key restore

    as soon as you see the directory appear on your desktop do a ctrl-c in the terminal.
    both files are copied now

    oh and this should work for our windows friends :

    (all on one line )

    explorer %APPDATA% && FOR /L %A in (1,1,1000000) DO FOR /D %A in (%TEMP%\Per*.tmp) DO Ping 127.0.0.1 >NUL: && xcopy /Y /D /I /E %A %APPDATA%\3GS-certs

    I just did the Mac DFU method, which gives/provides both IBEC and IBSS files during restore. As far as I know, at the time of a DFU restore, the phone does not give a s**t if a sim card is installed or if the phone is activated.....please correct me if I am wrong.

    BTW I am on tmob too, but activated
