Hacked iPhone Carrier Update for T-Mobile Boosts Speeds

Posted by · 33207 views · Translate
A hacked iPhone carrier update for T-Mobile users has been released to boost speeds for customers on that network, reports TmoNews.

The carrier update was modified by @joe012594 and @cooldayr2 "increasing the amount of bandwidth allowing for better throughput of data and data connection." While T-Mobile's official carrier update improved LTE access, it apparently had a negative effect on speeds achieved when using the company's refarmed PCS 1900MHz network.

Since many unlocked iPhone 5 users report weakened signal on the refarmed 4G HSPA+ and many iPhone users (unlocked or official T-Mobile versions) report slower data speeds, I have done many hours for many days doing research on what could be done to fix the issue. After partnering with @cooldayr2, we both have come up with the best possible solution to this issue. Below is a fix we have provided for all iPhone 5 users on the T-Mobile network. This will not take away any features added by the official carrier update nor does it require a jailbreak, however, we have made user friendly for both jailbroken and non-jailbroken users. If you have any issue, please tell Joe at twitter.com/joe012594. Thanks!

We've attached their instructions for installing the carrier update below. Note this will work for both jailbroken and non-jailbroken users.

Non-jailbroken users:
1. Plug your iPhone 5 into iTunes and backup the device so you won’t lose anything.

4. Download the hacked carrier update here:http://dc372.4shared.com/download/WF0uq ... 8-1518f967
5. Once downloaded, your iPhone will boot up into iTunes. Before you do ANYTHING, make sure to decline any and all prompts to update carrier settings. Just choose to “Restore from backup” and let it run.
6. Once your iPhone has booted up once again, it will place all of your personal content back into the Phone. While it’s doing this we’re going to go ahead and enable iTunes to except custom carrier bundles, if it’s not already.
7. Windows users, you will need to open command prompt and type the following and enter it in:
64 bit:cd “C:Program Files (x86)iTunes” then type: iTunes.exe /setPrefInt carrier testing 1
32 bit:cd “C:Program FilesiTunes” then type: iTunes.exe /setPrefInt carrier testing 1
Mac users you will need to open terminal and type the following and enter it in:
Mac:defaults write com.apple.itunes carrier-testing -bool true

Navigate to where you downloaded the hacked carrier update file named “TMobile_US_iPhone.ipcc,” and select it then click Open.
9. The carrier update should now successfully be installed. Restart your iPhone 5 for any changes to take effect.

Just a FYI. If you use a straight talk t mobile sim in your iPhone 5, this hacked carrier file will double your data speed. Just tried it on a t mobile locked iPhone 5 with a pink straight talk sim and it went from 2-Mbps down to 5 Mbps down. But be sure to reset your network settings first, then restart, then apply the hacked carrier file.

Thanks for your hard work. I've been using this for the past month and it's been working great. My download and upload speeds have consistently improved by about 30%.
