Sorry, I have been offline for two days. Vodafone Indias MCC/MNC should start with 404... as far as I know. As Speedy said, you first have to find out your MCC/MNC, then create the custom bundle for it. The Readme will tell you what symlink you have to look for.

---------- iPhone 4 factory unlocked, iOS 4.3.1, jailbroken
iPad Wi-Fi + 3G (1G), iOS 4.3.1, jailbroken
there is a new package in cydia called APN Editing, which makes this whole process very simple....no need to go for this custom bundle at all...after upgrading to 2.1 i installed this package and was able to edit the APN Settings. It works for all jailbroken phones..
can't restore 1.1.4
i have unlocked iphone 1.1.4, i tried to restore it using "iPhone1,2_2.1_5F136_Custom_Restore.ipsw" on iTunes 8 and am getting an error "The iphone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occured (5)." and i only see on the iphone plug and itunes icon. please guys tell me how do i fix it. Thanks
Thanks for that info, however the purpose of creating custom carrier bundles is entirely different.

This is a wrong thread to ask such questions. FYI, your phone must be pwned before restoring custom firmwares.

just wondering if you know of anyone who has had it work, or do i need to go in via ssh and add the bundle manually? any tips are appreciated...
thanks in advance,

XML versus Binary for iphone 3G FW 2.1
I might have a solid explanation to why, since FW 2.1, carrier bundles are not working that good.
In a previous thread I posted:http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=53023 , I reported:
Apparentely, the iphone 3G, specially since FW 2.1, does not support the XML mode, which was not the case for the previous version of the iphone!
I discovered that by trying to replace the /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj/SpringBoard.strings. I first converted the SpringBoard.strings in XML, did some changes and then replaced the original binary one with the modified XML one: it did not work!!!!!
Then I converted the modified XML one in a binary form : and IT DID WORK!!!!
My conclusion is that the 3G iphone, specially since FW 2.1, DOES NOT SUPPORT the XML form, contrary to the previous version of the iphone!!!!
My conclusion is that all plists inside the carrier bundle, should be converted to binary mode to be fully functional!!
use the link http://iappcat.com/plist/bin2xml to do so.
Just my 2 cents.
PS : anyone could tell me if that works??
where are the plist files located ?

thanks for your tips docomar; unfortunately it didn't seem to work. question: is there any indication as to the success of creating the binary file? each of the files that i covert at iappcat.com comes back listed as an ascii file, which leads me to believe that they are not converting properly.
looking into converting them myself with plutil now...
Conversion from Binary to XML or from XML to Binary
Normally, at least for me and a lot of others, when you use http://iappcat.com/plist/bin2xml :

I hope that is clear enough!
PS : They are converting pretty well : I never had any problem converting with
