I have received quite a number of comments and email from T-mobile users about jailbreak issues when they’re trying to jailbreak iPhone firmware 2.1 with QuickPwn.
Issues reported include:
- Not able to get past the emergency call screen
- Have a tmobile carrier in the upper left corner with full bars
- Only see the emergency call screen
It seems the above issues are particularly for T-mobile iPhones. For other SIMs, I seldom heard of the problems. Thanks, Guy Wire who pointed us to a possible solution for these T-mobile issues on Jailbreak. Quoted from the source, here is the suggested fix:
-Using Itunes 8 download the 2.1 restore file, or you can dl it from a third party as long as it is the correct file.
-Next uninstall Itunes 8
-Next install Itunes 126.96.36.199
-Next locate the iTunes Library.itl file and DELETE IT (other wise Itunes 7 will not open)
-Next INSERT YOUR TMOBILE SIM before doing the restore
-Next restore your firmware to 2.1 in the manner shown in the quickpwn instructions
-Next continue to follow the quickpwn instructions exactly
As the author pointed out, you may not need to downgrade iTunes. The point here is you should INSERT YOUR T-MOBILE SIM before doing any firmware restore.
As I’m not a T-mobile user, I cannot test out the solution. If you have tried the above solution, please leave comment and share with us your result. This would be great for others who are still stuck with these issues.
