    Default TurboSIM troubleshooting

    Trying to make a nice single thread to sum up the different issues

    New way to enable/disable CommCenter

    Note that, to superscede older tutorials, CommCenter should be disabled and enabled with the method given below rather than by modifying the files - this way, you don't need to reboot, and it's faster (thanks iZsh).

    If you like GUIs, you can use UICtl too, available at http://iphone.natetrue.com/UIctl/


    disable CommCenter : launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist

    reenable CommCenter : launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
    Starting up aka the new foolproof tutorial

    REVISION 5

    Brought to you by iZsh, Zf, and all unfortunate testers and contactless souls of #iPhone-TurboSIM

    Follow carefully these simple steps in the given order

    - Make sure CommCenter is not disabled (otherwise there won't be any way to know if the contacts between the TSIM and your SIM are correct, and major frustration ensue)

    - Insert your TSIM and AT&T SIM (some tutorials state that you can program your TSIM with a non AT&T card in the iPhone, but this does not work)

    - Check that you don't get a "NO SIM" message. If you do, then you have either bad contacts or a broken TSIM if you were not careful enough. Open the tray very carefully, readjust, replug until the "NO SIM" message disappears.

    - If the AT&T SIM inserted with the TSIM has a PIN enabled, disable it now, or you won't be able to program the TSIM

    - Check if you see the "SIM Applications" menu entry in Settings / Phone. If you don't see it, you'll have to reset your TSIM (see the paragraph "reseting the TSIM from the iPhone")

    - Disable CommCenter and run turbo-info, which should display your TSIM kernel version and serial number, not just "No Error". If you don't see something like that, consider it didn't work

    Kernel Version 1.2.7.0
    Serial Number xxxx-xxxxxxxxx
    OK. No Error
    - If turbo-info did not work, try to run iZsh Turbo-smsreset http://iphone.fiveforty.net/wiki/ind...Turbo-smsreset and run turbo-info again

    - If turbo-info still doesn't work, cry for help on #iphone-TurboSIM

    - Otherwise your can program your TSIM as expected :

    - Install AppleSaft : if applesaft.trb was uploaded in /private/var/root that's

    Code:
    turbo-app /private/var/root/applesaft.trb
    - Reenable CommCenter

    - Reboot

    - Go into the AppleSaft menu in Settings / Phone / SIM Applications, choose Set, it will print some number, then choose Accept

    - Ok now it's done, but stay calm, you don't want to break the TSIM that close to your goal

    - Open the tray carefully and replace the AT&T SIM by your own subscription, align it carefully with the TSIM and plug back the tray. If you see a "NO SIM" message, realign carefully. Did I mention carefully ?

    - Reboot

    - If an "incorrect sim" appears use iASign method to activate (for mac: iASign.mac --automatic iPhoneActivation_private.pem if the .pem has been installed)

    - Try to make a call and receive a call. If you don't have anybody to call, don't ask on #iphone-TurboSIM

    - Enjoy your functional iPhone thanks to Bladox and all the community

    Reseting the TSIM from the iPhone

    This assumes AppleSaft is not "blocked" with a bad "set" command. In this case, see the next paragraph.

    - Check the SIM PIN menu in Settings/Phone and enable it with 1111

    - If the menu is grayed, remove the TSIM, put the AT&T SIM alone, and enable the SIM PIN to 1111, then put back the TSIM and AT&T SIM together

    - When the phone requests the PIN, enter the TurboSIM PIN (written on Bladox package). A message will come up saying that the PIN is incorrect, but the PIN attempts should not be
    decreased.

    - Reboot

    - Check the SIM PIN menu in Settings/Phone and disable it

    - Check if you see the "SIM Applications" menu entry in Settings / Phone. If you don't see it, go cry on #iphone-TurboSIM

    Recovering a second "set"

    If you press "Set" on AppleSaft a second time with your real subscription attached, you're basically toasted, and have to reset your TSIM.

    To do that, insert your TSIM + any SIM in another phone

    Enable the SIM PIN on that phone and power cycle

    When the phone requests the PIN, enter the TurboSIM PIN (written on Bladox package). A message will come up saying that the PIN is incorrect, but the PIN attempts should not be decreased.

    Put back your TSIM + AT&T SIM in the iPhone and reprogram it

    turbo-info displays the current version of your TSIM. It's a nice way to debug potential problems before really programming it.

    It's located in the same archive

    Well, this tutorial covers the AppleSaft application, which is the easiest method and requires an AT&T SIM.

    If you don't have an AT&T SIM, you'll have to go the ISA way, which means programming the TurboSIM on another phone, so this is not covered by this tutorial as most people will be able to use the first method.

    In the second case, you don't need to have an AT&T card. Use any ICCID you like (such as your own subscription ICCID), and enter the IMSI in the following format 08 39 01 14 10 xx xx xx xx replacing each x by an hex digit between 0 and F.

    I've never seen this - could be everything from a bad download to a broken Wifi connection.

    Can you retry with the iPhone connected to its dock, then check your Wifi connection, then if it fails restore and try to reinstall the binkit/SSH with a different method ?
