Ok here is how to make the above work on t-mobile! [note this may work for other providers however I have only tested it on t-mobile USA]
Make sure Data Roaming is turned on and 3G is OFF then go into Cellular Data Network.
From here enter in the following
MMS Proxy 126.96.36.199:8080
MMS Max Message Size:
MMS UA Prof URL:
Now reboot your iPhone and you are good to go!!! You will now have a little camera icon next to your message window on the sms/mms application.
AS ALWAYS TRY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!! THE CHANCES OF SOMETHING GETTING MESSED UP WHILE DOING THIS ARE VERY VERY SLIM HOWEVER IF YOUR PHONE BREAKS ITS NOT OUR FAULT!
Ok this is a quick and simple one… Follow yesterdays post for jailbreaking and then you can move on….
- Ensure you have upgraded to iPhone OS 3.0
- Jailbreak your iPhone 3G using redsn0w or PwnageTool (this will also install Cydia/Icy)
- Run Cydia or Icy
- Please add the repo repo666.ultrasn0w.com to Cydia or Icy. That last “o” is actually the number zero “0”! If you use the letter “o” you’ll get an error.
- Search for ‘ultrasn0w’ in cydia or icy and install ultrasn0w
- Reboot your iPhone 3G
- T-Mobile USA users should disable 3G before using ultrasn0w
Thats all there is to it! Now one minor issue I noticed. The phone may drop signal and regain it for the first 5min or so after unlocking. After that everything will work like it should.
One perk is if you were using a turbo sim like I was you may see better signals I know I did
Ok you non iPhone users are gonna hate me becuase the next few posts are all iPhone related. I promise I will get some non iphone content up soon..
On with the post
Jailbreaking your iPhone 3G Firmware 3.0 [may work with other iphones besides 3gs however I dont know for sure]
TRY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!! THE DEV TEAM WORKS HARD TO PREVENT BRICKING HOWEVER IT IS STILL POSSIBLE. IF YOUR PHONE BREAKS ITS NOT OUR FAULT!
Now that we got that out of the way the steps….
- Update your iTunes to the new release
- Update your iPhone to firmware 3.0 like any normal person would.
- Once updated find the ipsw file that was loaded onto your iPhone [On vista it is located in C:\Users\LOGIN_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates/]
- Download Redsn0w HERE [dont worry its safe :)]
- Extract redsn0w and run the program. Simply follow the instructions and you will be done in no time
- Go get a pizza or drink its gonna take a while….
- Enjoy your jailbroken iPhone!
Thats all there is to it your results may very. I had to do it 3 times before I got it done right but if you keep trying it will work
Ok so I bought a turbosim off of ebay for $8.20 [link] and it got here today. Speedy shipping so that made me happy. Once I got it within 2min of sitting at my desk I was recording a video and testing the card out. Now I have had it working for a few hours and all seems to be well so far so I am calling it a success.
If you want to unlock your iPhone I suggest grabbing one of the sim cards at that ebay link above and trying it out. If you have success be sure to let us know 🙂
BE SURE TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS WHEN YOU GO TO INSTALL IT FAILURE TO DO SO MAY CAUSE YOUR PHONE NOT TO WORK AND YOU WILL HAVE TO TRY AGAIN!
WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMANGE TO YOUR DEVICE IF YOU BREAK IT THEN YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN.
