hopefully tomorrow night this problem will be over!
Thanks Dev-Team Blog
I'd like to thank Dev-tem for their outstanding free job. Without them we would be lost. Now my iPhone mobile 3g 2.2 works with etisalat sustaining signals, all communication methods works....
ok, I just tried with an office colleague SIM since my new one is not yet received (provided by company...). and after 2 attempts, it worked and at last could place a call so I also confirm that it looks like the new SIM are compatible with unlock on contrary of old one (with old etisalat logo like I still have).
as it was not my SIM I couldn t perform all tests but at least I could use the phone this time.
will update next next once I have a SIM replaced.
at last the end of the Dark Tunnel.
ps: for having YS working I confirm the following method:
- all buttons OFF in bossprefs
- reset network settings (I found out that it is mandatory when you change SIM)
- in thermnal type yellowsn0w -r 2 at least twice so that the no network text goes to 4 bars
- airplane mode ON then OFF after 10-15s
- et voila!
I just returned from dubai yesterday, and they sell the Hong Kong version of pre-unlocked iPhone 3Gs there... So you could just jailbreak it with QuickPwn...
The Dev Team Solution does work, I have tried on three 3G iphones with 2.2 firmware and 02.28 baseband.
But the only flaw I have seen is, each time I reboot the iphone either by SBSettings or Manually, I have to always use terminal so to catch the signal. The steps I had to go through is this
a) Login as root either using mobiterminal (su) or by using Putty (Windows)
c) After it showed me the No Service sign, I had to wait till its back to no bars. Immediately I switchd on the Airplane mode, and after 10 secs switch off.
Now is there any way to avoid doing this again and again?
donnot use Terminal use BoosPrefs better. I've tried and now iPhone works fine.
Hai everybody, just to confirm that after running around dubai and abu dhabi yesterday and today i can confirm that my phone can detect back the signal in case i loose it ie in lift or certain area within uae.
Just one thing i notice that there is one time i cannot get back the 3g text, only edge text, however when i check through boss pref, both got the ip address and my map or mail working perfectly.
i did experiment by on off the airplan mode, if i did not off the 3g either in general setting or boss pref, the phone will only show search without catching any signal, however, if i off the 3g, i will get back etisalat signal. once i got the signal, i try to on the 3g, then the phone will start searching again.i have'nt try to leave the phone like this for a long time yet..may be other time.
off course this can simply can be resolved by reboot using boss pref, and on off the airplane mode.
may be just a small bug...hopefully can be fixed in the final version of yellowsn0w.
will do some more testing soon
ok guys, just downladed latest 0.9.6 and it is the best release ever. just after installing yS in cydia I got the network in 2s even without reboot, airplane or other joke.
at last everything fine!
I beleive my case is close and yours also!
yellowsn0w 0.9.6 perfect
After a lot of struggle with the initial versions of yellowsn0w I can confirm that i have unlocked nearly 50 iPhones now with 0.9.6 without a single problem.
No fancy steps required. I just did the following (Without any sim in the phone):
1. Update firmware to 2.2
2. Jailbreak with quickpwn
3. Settings>General>Network: Turn off 'Enable 3G' and 'Data Roaming'
4. Join a Wifi network.
5. Enter Cydia, first time it will reorganise.
6. Enter Cydia again (ignore update if you want, doesn't make any difference)
7. Tap Manage>Sources>Edit>Add http://apt9.yellowsn0w.com
8. Once Source is downaloaded, press done and install yellowsn0w from source
9. Shut down phone, insert 3rd party sim, start up phone, and within 10 seconds network shows!
Thanks to the Dev Team for their excellent effort!!
no more network since last night
Don t know if it is due to my sim repolacement but I have no more network since last night.

when trying to connect I get the following:
your selected cellular network is restricted. you can choose a different network in settings."
