    Default Vodafone + turbosim

    Hi all,

    I live in the United Kingdom and I got a Iphone from my cousin that I have unlocked and jailbroken to 1.1.2

    The Iphone is from week 42. The way i did everything went simply:

    1) downgrade to 1.1.1
    2) jailbreak 1.1.1
    3) install Oktoprep
    4) upgrade to 1.1.2

    But now when I use the turbosim with a vodafone simcard, it shows me "No Service" at the top. I had a look in iworld to see which countries were supported but I couldn't find the UK?

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    why would you want to use a turbosim?

    Because I thought it was needed to simcards outside the US and because the phone is from week 42 and not from 45 or above. How do I know what the original bootloader version is and can I use those steps in the link you gave me straight away from 1.1.2 or do I have to upgrade to 1.1.4 and then follow those steps?

    Thanks

    *EDIT: my bad, I read I have to update to 1.1.4 first. But I'm still confused about what bootloader I currently have and is it useful by following the step to downgrade the bootloader to 3.9 if I have an upgraded one?

    Hi Mikebuzz,

    well I did all the steps on the site you gave me and my iphone is now updated to 1.1.4 with the modem firmware: 04.04.05_G

    The thing is that I'm still getting "No Service" at the top, I tried a vodafone and an O2 card and they both show the same thing.

    Any more advice on what to do?

    Thanks

    Thumbs up

    maybe in ur case, u need to refurbish your phone to its original state, then follow my tutorial. If it doesn't work after this (and ive heard that ziphone unlocks for all cards, meaning international. So go ahead try this. and the name calling, not personal towards anyone lolol

    ps just to let u know ill be using a vodafone card over the summer in spain and that is why i unlocked it this way, to use with vodafone card. Now ive read somewhere that zibris unlock is full, supporting any sim card someone please correct me if im wrong...

    ANY VERSION --> 1.1.4 fully workin w/t-mobile edge settings
    u want to downgrade to 1.1.1 using ziphone?! WRONG

    do this ya douche. get yourself ibrickr , and put ur fone in DFU mode (hold power and home button, power first then home, and just count approximately 5 seconds make sure it doesnt turn off and keep holding the home button

    plug the phone in and have ibrickr detect it , doesnt matter if itunes is running also it wont bite. I brickr will ask u wat u want to do and click BEGIN DOWNGRADE TO 1.0.2. Next your screen will turn white, and ibrickr will instruct you to located 1.0.2.ipsw in the ibrickr folder (if its not there, which i think it should be, just download it @iphone-hacks.com. and just save it into ibrickr and rename "1.0.2.ipsw)

    Begin the downgrade (if it hangs out waiting for iphone which happens on fones week 47 and beyond, jump to step )

    Next after your done downgrading, and after ibrickr starts up the fone, your going to want to virginize your phone. You can do this by downloading newest version of iphone, and going to advanced prefs and click "virginize 3.9 baseband". THis will ierase your phone, and when it starts up itunes will tell u HEY YOUR NOT AN AT&T CUSTOMER?!?! GETTEM! this is fine

    now after this step, your going to want to go to itunes and shift restore yourself to 1.1.4, dont update because w.e. u downloaded b4 might stay on so its gay lol

    after youve succeeded in upgrading yourself to 1.1.4 run ziphone again, newest gui version, and click DO IT ALL this will unlock/jailbreak/activate your fone, and since its you virginize, it is BRAAAAAAAND SPANKING NEW KID! congratulations, you just laid an egg

    this is what i did , then add the source sleepers.net/iphone/repo.xml (bigboss repo) and install t-mobile 5.99 hack, assuming u have t-mobile. If not search around for w.e. service provider yu got and see if theres a fix

    other than that my fones working great.. except when i installed customize, somehow i found a tutorial and managed to get the 1.1.2 version on, it still was not working. all i needed it for was for hiding all the icons anyway. So install the app "poof" this will hide any apps on springboard, assuming u got summerboard installed. Then, install bigbossprefs to turn off ssh when ur not using it so it wont drain. I installed bigbossprefs because the app "services" was buggin out me like i would turn wifi and edge off and close out the application, then wen i opened it again they were on again UUUUGHHHH shoot me lol

    anywway hope this helps w w.e. ur trying to do.

    and admins by chance reading this and think its informative, give me sum rep power! i think i deserve it lol peace

    Thanks a lot for the explaination. I'm gonna try this one defininately and let you know if I succeed. By the way..i'm a bit confused on this bit:

    "then add the source sleepers.net/iphone/repo.xml (bigboss repo) and install t-mobile 5.99 hack, assuming u have t-mobile. If not search around for w.e. service provider yu got and see if theres a fix"

    I don't have t-mobile but I want the card to work on a vodafone or O2 simcard (UK). So do I still have to look for a fix or something or does the phone immediately detect the simcard after following all these steps?

    Thanks

    nah that bit is just for using the data browsing thing, like mobile internet, you can enter this manually in settings>network>edge> then just google gprs setting for <your_carrier_here>

    thanks alot
