    Default How to use turbosim to use my bricked Iphone?

    Ok I have a Iphone that was V. 1.0.2 and it was unlocked using a free unlock program. I then stupidly upgraded to V. 1.1.1 which of course bricked my phone! So my question is will downgrading to V. 1.0.2 and then using a turbosim get my Iphone working again? Also what are the steps I need to do to use my Iphone with turbosim and T-mobile? I have Already downgraded to 1.0.2 and ran AppTapp. So whats next? do I have to gain access to a AT&T sim to get this to work or do I just need turbosim?

    thanks so much in advance! I cant deal with having a 500.00 brick just sitting on my dresser! I hate my T-Mobile Dash and want my Iphone back!!

    As I understood you already have mastered the first steps to get your Iphone back to 1.0.2.
    When you are activated and jailbraked your remaining problem is the baseband update. Because of this your phone is not working anymore. But you know this already...
    When you managed to get a TurboSIM Card:

    Connect to your iPhone via SSH
    (I'm using Win SCP for PC or FUGU for MAC)
    Download turbo-cable-utils-iPhone-0.7.0-rev1.tar.gzhttp://www.gofilego.com/?fileid=71ae...3da7541ee37ae8
    (much thanks to Zf_)
    Unzip it, and place the entire content of the folder bin-iPhone into the iPhone's /bin directory.
    (You can remove the bins after you're done if you want. Ignore the folder patch.)
    Give executable permission to these files. Chmod +x , or chmod permission to 0755 if you're using a client like WinSCP
    Download applesaft-0.92.tar.gzhttp://www.bladox.com/pub/applesaft-0.92.tar.gz
    Unzip it, go to the bin folder in the file you've just unzipped, and you will find the file applesaft.trb
    Copy applesaft.trb into your iPhone's home directory (/private/var/root)
    Disable CommCenter ( make File not executable)
    Download and/or open the file /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist on your iPhone
    Add Disabled just above the text
    Save file and/or upload it back
    Restart iPhone

    Now we've got all the software part settled, lets move on to some hardware fixing:
    Cut up the AT&T SIM until it fits the TurboSIM nicely. It is ok to cut a tiny bit more so that they'll fit nicely.
    Repeat the above process with your own SIM card (the one you wish to use with the iPhone)
    Insert the AT&T-TurboSIM combination very gently back into the iPhone.
    Be extra careful! The TurboSIM is notoriously brittle, and will crack if you use too much force!
    Open up an SSH command terminal and enter the following command: turbo-info
    You should see a summary and OK
    Next, enter the following command: turbo-app /private/var/root/applesaft.trb
    You should see a reply with OK
    Enable CommCenter
    Download and/or open the file /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist on your iPhone
    Remove the text Disabled you have added previously
    Save file and/or upload it back
    Restart iPhone

    Now we've finally gotten the difficult parts away! The rest should be easy:
    Go to your iPhone Settings menu > Phone. You will now see a new option SIM Applications
    Select it, then select Apple Saft, and then Set
    Remove the AT&T-TurboSIM combination (gently), and insert your own SIM-TurboSIM combination (again, gently)
    Congratulations! If you've done everything correctly, it works now!
    To enable EDGE on your iPhone now:
    Go to your iPhone Settings menu. You will now see a new setting for EDGE
    Enter your carriers APN and/or username and password (consult your carrier if unsure)

    I grabbed this tutorial from another forum, but it is identical wiith the http://iphone.simbunch.com/turbosim.php?type=applesaft tutorial

    The best thing is to use this link for your needs.

    Good luck! And be careful with your simcard, there are only a few millimeters left to the chip when you are cutting out the plastic!!
