I had a brief moment to try it last night but the MCC/MNC # was not listed in the directory so I created the folder and created the symlink myself like how the readme said but when I would open the folder assuming it would direct me to my custom carrier bundle instead it would open and show my custom carrier.bundle with a broken icon and say it can't be found if I try to open it...when I tried ln -s again it said there was a link already (command I put in - ln -s custom carrier.bunlde 12345) <--example) I was already in that directory as well prior to inputting that but should I try a complete path i.e ln -s /System/Library etc etc?

Did you start FirldTest, the hidden app as described in post 1 of this thread, what were the values?
Did you create the standard carrier bundle? If so, dont open it, it contains all the stuff you need.
Just please answer the questions above and I will guide you all the way.
1. T-Mobile US
2. MCC = 310
MNC = 26
and yes standard carrier bundle that I was going to manually ssh in
You probably do have the *_custom.zip. Unzip it and open the folder.

Look for 31026 (looks like a folder). If its there, just rename it to old_31026.
Quit the SFTP program.
Start PuTTY (Win) or Terminal (Mac) and SSH into the iPhone, then
cd /System/Library/Carrier\ Bundles
ln -s TMobile_US_custom.bundle 31026
replace with your bundles name.
Restart the iPhone and you should be set.
One more note. When creating the custom bundle, you filles out all the mandatory fiels (marked with *), right?
I just went through this. Do it as Vokspost described it to you.
- Copy the custom bundle folder (after you unzip on your PC - copy the folder that is right above the readme file) to your /System/Library/Carrier Bundles
- There will not be a 31026 folder the /System/Library/Carrier Bundles directory. But best to make sure.
- ln -s <the folder name that you copy to the iphone> 31026
BTW, this is how I created the bundle
Bundle name = TMobileUSA (the pink box)
Account URL = My T-Mobile = http://www.t-mobile.com
Carrier name = T-Mobiile (the cyan box)
Service name 1 = T-Mobile Assistance = 611
Service name 2 = Directory Assitance = 411
Service name 3 = Voicemail = 123
Supported SIM = 31026
First character = T
Now you can click at the bottom to create the bundle. It will create TMobileUSA_custom.zip for you
hquest, volkspost, dtube - Thanks for the help everything is good to go now :) I doubled checked my orignal steps multiple times but who knows, either way I am good now. Thanks
"No SIM" message
I tried building a custom bundle for TIM (Brazil) with MCC/MNC 72402 without much luck.
I tried using Pwned 2.0.2 with custom bundle and scp'ing it myself. I also tried building my own bundle from scratch using plutil without any luck.
Is there anyway to debug or check out log files to see what's going on?
The manual (SSH) method worked like a charm here. Created a PWN version and a Manual one... tried the PWN method first, but it didn't work. The "Carrier Settings..." issue remained, when hooking up the iPhone to iTunes. Tried the manual (SSH) way after that, after a clean PWNage retore w/Cydia and Installed, and it worked perfectly. No more error when hooking up iPhones to iTunes, so all is good.
It would have been a lot easier if the PWN version w/the T-Mobile fix had worked. It (the T-Mobile Bundle) did show up in the packages and I did select it, but the subsequent restore didn't take. It occurs to me now that it might be due to *not* including Cydia or Installer in that PWNage build... which would mean no BSD subsystem. Maybe this is what kept the PWN method from working?
Thoughts about this Volkspot?
There is a good chance that this is the reason. For making all this work with the pwn bundle a script is executed at the first launch of the iPhone after applying the custom firmware. This relies on some BSD functions. Have never tried it without selecting Installer and Cydia, so yes, this is probbly the reason.
