    Hi everyone,

    I am from India, receently I brought a iPhone which is I guess SIM locked. Coz everytime I enter my Indian SIM it says Invalid SIM. Now kindly excuse me, but I am kind of complete n00b when it comes to unlocking, jailbreaking and wat not related to iPhone.

    What I want to know is how to make my iPhone work with Indian or for that matter any SIM. I have not done anything with it other than installing some apple apps.

    I have checked the version of it from Setting >> General >> About and it says Version 4.1 (8B117) and Modem Firmware as: 5.14.02.

    Would appreciate of someone can tell ot guide me to a place where I can find all the necessary info regarding evrything.

    A step by step guide on how to make it work will also be appreciated.

    Thanks,


    P.S. Mod, if this is not the correct section for it then plz move it to whichever is right place.

    You should be able to jailbreak/unlock if you have the original iphone 2g. If you have any other iphone, you can't unlock the phone until they release the newest ultrasn0w in a couple weeks. You can jailbreak the phone most likely though depending on the type of phone you have. Worst case scenario, you just wait a couple weeks for the newer jailbreak/unlocks come out.

    Greenpois0n, limerain, blackrain(older), and pwnagetool are tools used to jailbreak the phones. ultrasn0w is an unlock tool. You cannot have an unlock without a jailbreak.

    Ohk. Is there any other unlokcing utility available other than ultrasn0w? :hmm:

    And I came across 2 solution for 4.1 Jailnreaking (greenpois0n & limerain) for windows. What is the difference bewtween them? What should be preferred? And why?

    They do the same thing. It is all up to the user on preference.

    There is no unlocking facility for your baseband (Modem firmware) at present. No way to downgrade it either. There is no date for release of a new tool (best guess would be a couple of weeks when 4.2 is rumoured to be coming out). The various sites on the internet that claim to be able to unlock your phone are scams and they cannot unlock your phone.

    Same problem, 3Gs (MC143C), just upgraded to 4.1 (8B117), and then did jailbreak with limera1n. Now, the phone is dead and can't use it

    Wonder how and when an unlock for 5.14.02 bb will be available.

    Cheers

    musclenerd has stated that the unlock for 5.14.02 will come a day or two after the official 4.2 update is released by apple. Supposedly apple will release that update on November 9th, or 12th.

    You need to jb with redsn0w 0.9.6b6 since it has the iPad baseband installation in it. You can then use ultrasn0w to unlock. You must use redsn0w on a pc. You can also use it on Mac.

    Hi Jedeoki, with this method (upgrading to iPad baseband), if you have an old bootrom [iBoot-359.3], would you get an untethered jb/unlock? Or will it be tethered for both old and new bootroms?

    If you are on the old Bootrom, then you can use fuzzyband downgrader. Jailbreak and run fuzzyband. It will tell you if you can downgrade or not.

    Always remember to save your SHSH using Cydia or TinyUmbrella also!
