Thread: Access root when not jailbroken

  1. #1
    Default Access root when not jailbroken
    I have an AT&T iPhone 4 and bought a unlocking SIM card but it did not work. Asked why and was told to edit something in the root directory. However how do I access root directory on a non jailbroken phone??? Cannot jailbreak when it is not activated!

    An unlocking sim for a iPhone 4...sounds like you got scammed.

    It'd have to be a universal activation SIM to access the springboard. But an "unlocking SIM", ditto with x98car. Doesn't sound right.

    Edit: or use AT&T SIM
