    Unhappy HELP! (prob with iphone)

    dear folks,

    my bro bought an iphone fr e States few mths back, his friend managed to break code for him n been using it in Singapore.

    However, when last nite he did an data upgarde online n after that, his iphone cant read his sim card or rather any other sim card.

    Wonder if anyone here have e same prob or experiences to share? Really need to get his iphone working again cos he stored alot of work n important stuffs inside.

    many tks.....

    There was a lot of talk about how once you crack your iphone the last thing you should do is UPDATE as it turns your iphone into a use brick! You have to google for help...heard this is something you don't want happen to you. Apple did something with the update and incorporate some code that when enter a hacked iPhone will break the hack and disable the phone. This was sometime back that they did this. Not sure if anyone found a way to reverse it....have not follow the news for a while now...I know alot got burn when they try to update the firmware via iTunes.

    BTW, thats 2.0 firmware and its not for 3G phone exclusively. It is for all iPhones.

    Only thing he can do is to wait for a new version of jailbreak that works.... in order to use a non AT&T sim card, you have to jailbreak the phone. The unfortunate part of this is that the jailbreak usually comes shortly after a new firmware update is available. Unless you are a hacker who knows how to jailbreak the firmware, otherwise, you have to just wait for someone to release a new version of jailbreak.

    Its just sad that many people like to fix things that are not broken...

    i think that it is not wise to be discussing any forms of hacking or cracking
