    it should wokd fine with 1.00

    I did 2 turbosims with applesaft, it is important to make sure you cut the sim card enough for good contact, and i also had two add a little piece of paper in with one of them to make a better contact... one worked straight up, the other i had to try about 7 or 8 times and finally putting some paper...

    i thik the aT responses come from the turbosim, so i think the tsim is ok, it is just this bad connection thing... keep trying it, just be careful when inserting/removing the sim tray as it can damage the tsim if it scrapes it too much. do it slowly

    No, it wasn't a bad connection, there seems to be another problem. I'm using FW 1.01 with both phones, so maybe THIS is the problem?!

    I plan to do a full recovery (maybe even using FW 1.02?) and try again with Applesaft (I won't try ISA again, it really didn't seem to work for me at all and I followed all steps very correctly, incl. disabling the CommCenter).

    The Turbo SIM isn't the holy grail we all have hoped for, I'm afraid. Maybe this method can be improved with updated Applesaft/ISA binaries but right now, I encountered too many weird issues with my german T-Mobile and Vodafone SIMs, so I'm not sure this method is really realiable.

    I had this issue last night.
    The only way past it for me was to put my TurboSIM and **ATT** SIM in and run turbo-info, turbo-app /var/root/applesaft.trb with the ATT SIM inside,
    then, run applesaft.
    Click "Set"
    and with the phone still switched on, swap the ATT SIM for my own SIM.

    Hope this helps.

    Do you mean that you repeated the Applesaft install/setup?
    What about the CommCenter? Have you disabled/enabled it again too?
    Not sure what you mean, thanks.

    hey 997TT, I did two phones with 1.0.1 already so that ISNT the problem...

    I used applesaft on both as I considered the method easier than having to invert pairs and stuff to get the right numbers read by ISA...

    Also, I kept trying it, always taking care to remove the turbosim very slowly in ordr not to scrape the solder off it...

    are you able to run turbo-info without errors? if it errors on turbo-info it is probably a contact thing... mine was (and I was almost blaming the turbosim), i ended up being succesful when I put a piece of paper more or less over the little open area of the sim-tray, about .5cm wide, and going from side to side, so if I looked through the simtray "hole" it showed the paper was covering it. This was the only way to get contact, and after this it all went smoothly...

    (the first phone had gone 100% smoothly)... I guarantee you it was very frustrating and very scary, but it worked in the end. TSim is fragile and isnt a "pop-and-go" solution, but once its inside its fine really... I guess that in theory we could even use more functions of the TSim (like secure sms)

    Hi Guys!

    Did the same thing last night...

    To summarise...

    ISA method did NOT work... got the AT errors as described.

    Applesaft method worked absolutely fine!

    This was on an iPhone that has NOT had the firmware upadated!

    Hope that helps

    I just (accidentally) updated one iPhone to the new FW 1.0.2.
    Here's the funny part: it works better now with the TurboSIM than before.
    Vodafone Germany, no more "no service" or "SIM not found" messages but maybe the time is too short to evaluate if the problem really went away.

    Also "funny": iTunes shows my Vodafone phone number now but even funnier, I suddenly have access to the Vodafone SIM services which didn't work before with the TurboSIM (new menue, I can choose from services like news, etc. and the SMS arrives without any problems).

    So to make you guys understand what happened (the knowledgable already know, nothing new): I have a "virgin" iPhone now with the latest 1.0.2 Firmware, activated automatically through iTunes (GoPhone contract but surprisingly the activation didn't take even a second this time, last time with the AT&T SIM it took a couple of minutes). The iPhone is NOT jailbreaked, no SSH, no sftp, nothing. Just the TurboSIM with my Vodafone Germany SIM and everything seems to be running smoothly and better than ever before. I have also EDGE (some cities have EDGE service from Vodafone), data transfer, YouTube, everything is working just fine. Wow.

    How I "accidentally" updated to the new FW? Simple: I was playing around with iTunes and forgot that the iPhone was connected. So I started the update procedure and unfortunately once it starts... A regular update didn't work, I had to completely recover the phone since the update process showed an error (very likely due to the installed SSH, etc. stuff).

    I'm happy now but I'm afraid I want a certain ringtone on my phone, so I need to jailbreak it again.

    hi m8, one question: when you updated the firmware I suppose you had the TSim/Voda in right, not your AT&T gophone sim?

    I want to update but I wonder if I need to put my ATT sim card in or I can leave the turbo in after the update. My question is for the initial sync, since I also use a valid AT&T card (similar to what itunes would consider a gophone I guess), but I want to make sure it wont screw up by sensing that I'm not actually on an att card...


    PS: I'm starting to doubt how much apple is wanting to shut out the hackers... honestly if they wanted they could have sent out a fix for the IMSI exploit in this patch, they could also have changed the jailbreak methods to disable them... all this development might be good as opposed to bad, for them!

    EDIT: also, not wanting to go off-topic, despite apple getting revenue sharing from ATT, they are still conscious that this is in the short term, in the long term the iphone will need to be unlocked and widespread just as ipods are...

    997TT,

    I was getting the Communication Error, when trying to run turbo-info with the TurboSIM and my o2 SIM inside.
    CommCenter was already deactivated. The Phone was activated with iAsign.

    When I switched off the iPhone, and swapped my o2 SIM for the ATT SIM, it all worked smoothly.
    I was able to run turbo-info, and then turbo-app to upload applesaft.
