Thread: Patch CommCenter & T-Mobile US Enable Carrier Bundles

  1. #1
    Default Patch CommCenter & T-Mobile US Enable Carrier Bundles for 4.0-4.2.1 EDGE/MMS FIX
    Patch CommCenter & Enable Carrier Bundles - THIS WILL WORK FOR ALL IPHONES IOS 4.0 ++++ to 4.2.1

    Okay this works perfectly for me and many of the other iPhone4 I did. Works thanks to wortel & Spookyet

    1. Reset network setting / reboot
    2. SSH your phone to var/mobile/ - place wortel commcenter patch in there
    3. install it via mobileterminal or iFile( i use ifile) "dpkg -i xxxx.deb"
    just use ifile it much simpler haha - REBOOT PHONE
    4. Enable plist editing by running - GOOGLE THIS and just copy and paste command line into cmd or console
    command promopt -> CProgram Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe" /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1

    Detail steps from rinnycoop121 - Thanks!

    Make sure to you have iTunes running and your phone connected to PC while doing this procedure

    Click the Windows Logo/Start Button
    in the search box type cmd

    once you see it in the list
    right click on cmd and select Run As Administrator.

    once the Command Prompt Opens you will see it says


    you type cd/ and hit enter

    now you will be at the C: prompt

    now type the following command

    cd Program Files (x86)iTunes then press enter

    now you should be at

    C:Program Files (x86)iTunes

    OK here is were you get commcenter patch to work
    "Again make sure you are running iTunes and your phone is connected to PC"

    with you having C:Program Files (x86)iTunes type this command

    iTunes.exe /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1
    and press enter

    nothing will happen
    "Meaning nothing will change on the screen and no conformation will be displayed"

    but if you go to itunes now and hold shift and click Check for Updates you will now be able to select the file you want

    goto iTunes hold shift and click on Check for Updates a open file dialog window will come on the screen.

    Browse to the folder where your carrier files are

    on the bottom-right of the open file dialog window you will see a drop-down box "File Type Box"

    you need to change it from ipsw to ipcc file type and you items will show up now

    after selecting the file you want you will see a loading screen that last for less then a second then leaves

    and that is it all should be done now.

    let me know if you need anything else

    5. Install T-Mobile Bundles ( i use legacy since i use web2go and most compilable with MMS from all phones) 4.2 ippc 4.1 ippc 4.0 ippc
    6. Connect iphone4 -> itunes -> shift + check for updates --> choose the carrier bundles you want
    7. reboot iphone4 -> take out sim --> place back in --> wait for signal

    EDGE WORKS 100% MMS works 100%
    Thanks again spooket and wortel!!
    Once again this is for iPhone4 only
    for iPhone3GS/3G easiest solution is to just use sinfuliphonerepo "tmo is04 mms fix" - that works 100%

    TO FIX THE EDGE/MMS NOT WORKING AFTER REBOOT - JUST GO TO YOUR T-MOBILE STORE AND GET A NEWER SIM CARD - THE SLIMMER ONE WORKS THE BEST! - tried it and rebooted 5 times - edge/mms still works 100% - seem like i got better signal too! lol.

    You should post the command to type in terminal to install the deb as many people might not know it (dpkg -i) and mobile terminal isn't available/stable on iOS4 so a windows solution would be putty and terminal for mac

    i can confirm this works.


    Iphone 4, jb, unlocked and working on t-mobile USA.
    t-zones, $5.99. I loaded t-mobile standard

    just wanna make sure.....

    If I currently don't have any DATA PLAN with T-Mobile. I cannot use this method, right?
    I tried to follow every steps in this instruction, but never got MMS work

  9. #7
    u still can. just make sure u enable cellular data. and make sure u don't have any other "fix" installed. Use legacy it works the best!

    Have you guys gone to Cydia after installing the patch?

    It says a half installed package is installed and wants to remove a comm center package...

    Any ideas??

  11. #9
    ok... so i did this a couple of nights ago to my iphone4 and my brothers iphone 4.. for some reason this morning my brothers iphone said to reinstall it.. but only gave the option to unstall.. I uninstalled it and reinstalled manually through SSH.. Any idea why it did this?

    and if we cant reboot, does that mean no turning the phone off at all? how about when rock has to reboot the phone because something requires it? then we have to reinsert the sim again?

  12. #10
    thanks, This worked for me.

    iPhone 4 w/ jailbreakme,ultrasn0w.
    I used an At&t sim card to activate first.
    $5.99 unlimited edge plan, so I used Standard bundle
    MMS works too.

    So there is no other way to having to re-insert the SIM after reboot ? Like a software solution ?


    I came across this

    for those of you, whose edge isn't working, are your notifications off?
    I tried with Notifications on, and edge still works after reboot (no need to reinsert sim)
    Now it seems that having notifications ON somehow helps to always keep the EDGE connection active, even after reboot.
    Everyone with edge problems should try turning Notifications on.

    does doing this enables cellular data network tab?

    cause if it does, i patch my commcenter and added a carrier bundle but the tab didn't show up

    Guys, you don't have to ssh into anything. Just install CommCenter No Sig 4.0 from Cydia, reboot, and install the ipcc.

    can i do this if i currently have NO EDGE PLAN with Tmobile?
    if this works I am planning to add the 9.99 a month EDGE plan to my iphone 4.

    so which ipcc file should i use? the standard one or the tzones one?

    Have you tried receiving MMS from other carrier beside T-Mobile? I can receive only from T-Mobile but can send anywhere. When i receive from ATT or Sprint I get an error due to resolution issue. let me know.


    by the way, i did not patch ComandCenter or install any MMS Fix packages. I just manually input the settings.
