Will there be a new version for iOS 4.2.1? Or is the 4.1 ipcc compatible with 4.2.1?
I'm running iPhone 3G iOS 4.2.1 jailbroken with 06.15.00 baseband unlocked on T-Mobile USA.

iPhone Model: iphone4 running 4.0.2
Carrier Bundle Used: T-Mobile Legacy, standard works too
Voice Plan: Family Time 700 (Old plan)
Data Plan: Blackberry Unlimited (BIS - not the enterprise one)
SMS: Pay per use
Time with T-Mobile: 5 years
Last Plan Change: 2 years ago
Problem: I can see TMOBILE service on the PHONE setting screen. Seems to work for phone call, but I cannot get DATA/INTERNET to use on the safari. If I reboot, I get invalid SIM after REBOOT. I will need to remove UltraSn0w, and reset network. Then reinstall Ultrasnow to get it working again. But Data never work.

Ya but what was the last firmware and Pwnage Tool Creamsn0w worked on?
12-01-2010, 10:11 AM #1852
Maybe I'm doing this wrong?
Here is what I did in the exact order ( I tried to do this 3 times and exactly the same result):
- Remove SIM card
- PwnageTool 4.1.3: create ios 4.1 and keep BB 1.59
- PwnageTool 4.1.3: ENTER DFU mode
- Tiny Umbrella 4.21: start TSS with SHSH for 4.1
- iTune 10.1: shift-restore, select custom ipsw ios 4.1+keep BB1.59
- restore done, restart IP
- run setting, setup WIFI
- run Cydia, update Cydia, reboot IP
- run Cydia, install UltraSn0w, reboot IP
- run Cydia, install openSSH
- ssh to IP and put CommCenter deb package in /private/var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall (need to create Cydia and AutoInstall directory)
- restart IP twice (per commCenter patch note)
- run this on itune: iTunes.exe /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1
- run itune, shift-update, select t-mobile_us__standard.ipcc
- restart IP
- PUT in SIM card (t-mobile), No carrier (just empty with 1 bar)
- SETTING/GENERAL - reset network
- Tmobile carrier show up, EDGE data does not work
- restart IP
- Tmobile does not show up, No carrier (just empty with 1 bar)
- reset network will make it work again.
* I can repeat the whole process or just the network reset to get voice call. But no data
Any help appreciated. Sorry for the long post. Just want to provide all the info I have.

I was going to change the carrier.plist to see if I can try different settings. But I see this in the directory, why do I have different bundle for Carrier Bundle vs Operator.bundle? Maybe this is the core problem that somehow the system is not reading the Carrier ID correctly for tmobile SIM for 310260 so it is UNKNOWN.bundle instead of using the IPCC I installed? but I don't understand why the OPERATOR bundle get it right.
lrwxr-xr-x 1 mobile mobile 46 Dec 1 21:14 Carrier Bundle.bundle -> /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/Unknown.bundle
lrwxr-xr-x 1 mobile mobile 42 Dec 1 21:32 Operator Bundle.bundle -> /var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundles/310260
I tried to manually repoint the link but it changes back to the UNKNOWN after reboot.
Just to confirm, I restored the iphone4 again and go through the process once more, that UNKNOWN.bundle is what I use for Carrier only.
If I put the SIM back to my iphone 3GS, I will get BOTH carrier and operator on UNKNOWN carrier and voice+data both work without any APN info for the BIS plan. So, I know the SIM card and my plan works.

Both Carrier Bundle.bundle and Operator Bundle.bundle should point to the T-Mobile bundle. You can clear out the contents of /var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundles/ and delete Operator Bundle.bundle and Carrier Bundle.bundle and unzip the Payload directory of the IPCC into /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone. It probably won't make a difference, but it won't hurt trying.
Lastly, do you have any Cydia crapware installed?

I have a iphone 3gs also unlocked so I know the SIM/plan works (same SIM that is cutted to the size and I use an adapter to go between. I also try pwnageTool that do not activate on the custom IPSW and then install and use my original ATT sim card to activate the phone. the att account is disabled already but it can use to activate the phone. I will get a the phone is activate message and another message saying data is not activated.
I think the iOS is trying to get something to activate the account for voice and data and put some kind of signature, maybe?
This last time of the restore and setup, since I use ATT to activate the phone, the carrier bundle looks like it is LOCKed on the ATT 310410 bundle and operator change to unknown when I put the Tmobile SIM in.
lrwxr-xr-x 1 mobile mobile 46 Dec 1 22:07 Carrier Bundle.bundle -> /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/310410
lrwxr-xr-x 1 mobile mobile 42 Dec 1 22:11 Operator Bundle.bundle -> /var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundles/Unknown.bundle
I have just restored again and only use the hackivation/openssh/ultraSnow.... this time I put in the tmobile sim card after ultrasnow and there is no carrier bundle but operator bundle is there
lrwxr-xr-x 1 mobile mobile 42 Dec 1 21:32 Operator Bundle.bundle -> /var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundles/Unknown.bundle
I suspect something is LOCKING or stopping the carrier bundle being setup or changed or read entirely.
Thanks for your help and willingness to check on this for me.

You can try browsing the Hackint0sh forum. More advanced users hang out there. Maybe, you'll find something relevant.

I read through a lot of posting... and I come up with a solution/workaround.
I restored to ios4.1 and then install openssh+ultrasn0w without sim card.
I put the tmobile sim in and operator bundle is created, no carrier bundle. I manually created the link for the carrier bundle, like to the unknown bundle. I took the sim card out and shutdown.
I power it up then and both the carrier and operator bundle stays, I can now put in att sim or tmobile sim, it will always use the unknown bundle for carrier. I see operator bundle change between 310410 and unknown. Just the carrier bundle do not change. But the unknown bundle allow me to edit APN. I tried epc.tmobile, wap.voicestream, both work.
I have a working phone for voice and data now, but I cannot change the sim card. If I change sim card, I will need to do a reset network.
Something is wrong but it is usable for now. I wonder what other people has and if anyone have this issue. Or they always have the same SIM card so it is not a problem.

However, the problem is the carrier bundle is not switching. I suspect it is stuck at the first SIM CARD I put in. So, when I unlock the phone, it has NO bundle. So, the SIM card in the first time after unlock and first reboot cannot find the carrier. I can reboot many times and it will not pick up a new carrier bundle (by a link on the /private/var/mobile/Library directory.
So, my solution is to create that link to UNKNOWN bundle the first time it creates the operator bundle (that points to UNKNOWN) and let it locks there.
I have try to do the same with patched commCenter and the IPCC you created with the same manual link method, but then I only get voice and as soon as I rebooted, the second reboot will lose the carrier again since the link for carrier will not stay.
This is a new iphone 4 I have just got as a replacement for a broken one. It comes with 4.0.2 BB 1.59 when I get it a week ago. My original iphone 4 has 4.0.1 and used the PDF hack/unlock and it was working beautifully. So, is my iphone 3GS with 4.0.1. I suspect something is different on the iphone or the IOS combination.....
If there is anything you would like to know about the phone, I can get you any info you like. But at least I found a way to get it to work for both voice and data (for now).
By the way, for whatever it worth.... I have the Tmobile BIS plan, unlimited BB message over the web and internet (not the enterprise BB plan). It seems to only work on APN with epc.tmobile.com. If you are creating future IPCC bundle, you may want to add one more for BIS plan. It will help a lot of BB conversion.
