so stuck, read so many guides on jailbreaking and unlocking. Successfully Jb my ipod touch 4 on 5.0.1 so not totally new to all this. I have a new iphone 4 boxed locked to another network and no original sim (or any way to get one, foreign phone and unknown carrier bought off ebay)
Bought a gevey turbo sim. Need to unlock for all networks obviously but every single guide i have seen/read relates to a phone that can at least get into the settings to activate 'airplane mode' after inserting gevey sim and dialling 112. doesnt work, and the guides seem to be for a phone that once had its original sim installed and been synced with itunes at least once.
Is it wise to attempt a jailbreak on a new boxed phone without original sim?
I have managed to avoid making pointless attempts in frustration i just need some advice on how to get a new iphone running without an original sim or losing baseband.
Really appreciate any advice anyone out there can give.
I have got a brand new boxed iphone 4 from ebay and it is locked to another carrier, still waiting on the seller to get back to me on the original network. Either way it looks like i will have to somehow activate it and unlock for all networks.
The problem is I can't sync to itunes so I do not know the firmware (does it even have any if its straight out the box?).
Can I jailbreak and unlock without ever syncing with itunes? Upoload custom firmware maybe??
All and any suugestions welcome!
