    anyone?

    vintera also found out that if the turbo app command responds with BAD FILE, it might instead respond with OK when addind verbose and baudrate parameters like below.

    turbo-app -b57600 -v /private/var/root/applesaft.trb

    BUT afterwards Applesaft CANNOT be found on the iPhone !!! he managed to use the applesaft on another phone, NOKIA, then, to program the turbosim, but this is no way to fit all.

    please help if you have any ideas.
    thanks

    Hi iMaso,

    I received the same Bad file response trying to programme a DUAL SIM card. I thought it is because of the DUAL SIM - not being a genuine Turbo SIM. But who knows?

    I still think that any cheap DUAL SIm with a chip 128K eeprom should work.

    So, I am very interested to know the answer to your question.

    Cheers!

    I am just wondering why the FXXK some people report that everything works perfectly with that turbo-app stuff and that some report that BAD FILE issue. And that all started at a certain point of time?!
    I also already wondered if there maybe had been a slight modification on the bladox turbosim in the meantime.....
    I searched google using "bad file" +"turbo-app", and almost all I found was just this thread and the other one with my tutorials. also "bad file" was reported when using similar tools for turbosims used in sony ericsson phones, but nevermind.

    ... could be 'cause there are, now, so many sources for those files and some of them may host corrupted (or altered) versions?


    I used the applesaft.trb dowloaded from Bladox's forum (sorry: don't have a link at hand right now) and... had no problem at all!

    that is in fact the point I believe
    when i "modified" MY phone, I used the link from my own tutorial. everything worked just fine.
    then, at a certain point of time, ppl started reporting they had this BAD FILE issue.
    so I downloaded again the folder with the turborev files FROM the link from MY tutorial, say, similar to the ones I used.....I checked it! all the modification dates are similar! all the kb-sizes are similar!
    I now wrote onto the 1st post of "my" thread that people who this error might occur to shall send me an email and I will send them the original files I used to hack my phone and turbosim, and if they will have errors with the ones they downloaded from the link in my tutorial BUT will succeeed with the ones I sent them by mail, then of course there definitely will have to be a difference. but if not, I am totally ..... I dont know. how can this be?

    WAIT!

    IDEA:

    to all of you out there having experienced either that BAD FILE error issue or the issue with SIM Applications not appearing on your phone:

    Are you for sure using an Original BLADOX TurboSIM? Or are you using another similar product or maybe a cheap fake which was only called TurboSIM by the one who sold it to you? Did you purchase the TurboSIMs at www.bladox.com?

    ... my two cents advice (for *your* own sake)... just drop it: these days 80% of wannabe unlockers simply *don't* read, 80% of the remaining... *CAN'T* read, 80% of the remaining don't understand what they read and 80% of the remaining can't understand what they read! Do you get the whole picture? :p :p :p

    You already wrote a great, step-by-step, tutorial for *Bladox TurboSIM* unlocking and it's there for everyone! Now... let's go out for a Mojito!
