    Default [1.1.2 Refurb] TurboSIM issues

    Hy guys,

    I am from Germany and I am beginning to get really nervous here. I went thru this tutorial:
    http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=17738 (Windows)

    three times and the whole thing just doesn't work. Here's what's happening:

    - after doing the "SET" step with TurboSIM everything seems fine.
    - I insert my Callmobile card (kinda reseller of T-Mobile) and still everything looks beautiful.
    - the phone recognizes the new card and joins the Callmobile network (no PIN required)
    - I can even make a call and aslong as I am talking I stay connected to the network
    - after some seconds it just stops (no bars on the upper left), says "NO SERVICE" and joins the network again
    - the joining of the network happens three times and then it stops with "NO SIM" Error although the Sim is still inserted in the Turbo SIM

    - so when I just plug the card out and reinsert it, everything just starts anew. connected and then not connected...
    - since I have right beside my loudspeakers I even can hear that specific GSM background noise during the whole time of the network join and getting locked out - you all know that sound, don't you?)
    - the weird thing: Apple Saft shows me under "exploited" Game Over
    - and after the "NO SIM" message I cannot join the "Settings -> Phone -> Sim Applications Menu" The Sim Applications Menu is disappeared
    - The modem firmware is 04.02.13_G
    - I cannot see an ICCID in the about menu

    Can anybody explain what's going on? Is the Turbo Sim defective, is the modem defective? Wholy crap...

    Any help appreciated, Thanks in advance...


    P.S. Could it be that T-Mobile began to check for IMEIs beginning with 01 and just throwing them out of their network? Anybody else having that experience with Callmobile or Debitel on a T-D1 based subscription?

    The "Game Over " message could be an old AppleSaft version (... there are like 4 0.92 floating around, try this one -> http://dl.free.fr/j67v9txZ9/applesaft-test-reset1.zip <- it is the latest one. really) which Apple changed the way AppleSaft was detecting the bug (but the bug still exists).
    After NO SIM, yes, Sim App menu is lost, as your phone thinks you have no sim, so no sim apps
    And what is your Bootloader version? (search for bbupdater -v, there are tons of posts about where to get it and how to run it)
    Finally, I think ICCID is got from TurboSIM -- at least, is one of those info stored on my TurboSIM.

    Error: Failed to initialize comm layer:  (is it open by another app?)
    Done

    this is the answer having the original AT&T card in it.
    do i need to unload the comm center first? Ah yes... sorry...

    Code:
    # launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
    # bbupdater -v
    Resetting target...
    pinging the baseband...
    issuing +xgendata...
        firmware: DEV_ICE_MODEM_04.02.13_G
     eep version: EEP_VERSION:208
    eep revision: EEP_REVISION:1
      bootloader: BOOTLOADER_VERSION:3.9_M3S2
    Done
    #
    Well: bootloader 3.9, right? I'd better throw that TurboThang into the next dustbin ;-) Means I can use the AnySIM way of life, right? Nevertheless, why doesn't the Turbo way of life work? Wrong version? Why can I lock into the network and will be thrown out of it just some minutes later? And If am talking to someone I will be kept on the network! This is really weird shit.

    I think I will go for the forth downgrade and full unlock inside of 1.1.1 and then updgrade to 1.1.2.

    Sounds to me like it might be poor sim contact, mine was behaving pretty similarly when I first put it in, the TSIM had too much wiggle room and easily lost contact, I put in a little bit of blutac to wedge things in place, and been fine since.

    this applesaft also shows "Game Over " and after doing it again and again (6times in total now) including the strip on the back to reduce the wiggle. but wiggling was never a prob for me. I felt like the space was kinda narrow to get it in...

    but I didn't felt like this was a wiggle problem anyway. since when I am talking the connection stays upright... funky isn't it?

    let me know if you got further ideas.

    kind rgds, xi

    seems like this is a TurboSIM issue. Unlocking on the normal way just works...
    see here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=18132

    Thanks anyway, xi
