I tried your method after numerous attempts and finally got it to recognize the SIM but it will not access the internet without wi-fi? Did you have this problem and if so how do I fix this???
tried_several_methods - May 18, 2009 at 2:35pm
I tried several different ways to make my unlocking work. Here is what I did (on my 4th iteration) and it ONLY deals with removal/placing of sim cards 1) Shift+Restore method WITHOUT ANY SIM CARD 2) Place desired sim card in Only AFTER: Shift+Restoration is done AND you close iTunes follow the all other steps as written above. great work. cheers.
earthsprez - May 25, 2009 at 10:25am
you my friend are the man. i use quickpwn like ten times now and not once could i find out what the f i do with the sim cards. your method worked like a charm. i kept putting the tmobile sim in after the process was done and it was telling me unreconized sim. putting the 3rd party sim in after the restore but before quickpwn is genius
bhunesh - May 18, 2009 at 5:29am
I realy need help here.I have real problem here. I jailbroke my 2nd generation Iphone with quick pwn I used the bootloaders and the framework was up to date. Everything went through fine until I opened Cydia. There are no I repeat no package in Cydia. What did I do wrong???? Please be gentle I'm fairly a newbie, so I dont understand tech language. Help I've done everything I can think of. BTW if I placed this in the wrong thread please tell me where I'm supposed to be.

I download it like hundred of times and still can't see the frikin box. I,ve done this before but this time the files are .dmg even says that is for windows (iPhone1,2_2.2_5G77_Restore,iPhone1,2_2.2.1_5H11_Restore). If some one is kind and could send me a real restore for QuickPwnfor Windows
Eugene - May 17, 2009 at 4:56pm
Done!! The problem was that windows convert it automaticly ito .zip. easyiest way.. Downloadit thru FireFox.
sangrail85 - May 24, 2009 at 7:24pm
its easy.. just change the extension file from .zip to .ispw... cheers
Biggie - May 12, 2009 at 10:18am
I had one problem: Itunes didn't restore and update the first time. I retries and it worked perfectly . EXCELENT Tutorial . Thanks!
Lauren - May 9, 2009 at 7:44pm
great tutorial. an important thing that i think should be mentioned is the CLOSING OF ITUNES after doing the restore, befor estarting quickpwn. also, i too ran into the error with the sim card being different. i did what one someone did before. pretty, much, i had to start from the step of restoring the phone to the 2.2.1 software on itunes. i did this with an att sim that was used in the phone before starting the process so it could be recognized). then, as soon as i disconnected from itunes i put in the t-mobile sim. i did quickpwn steps with the t-mobile sim card and then the phone was ready to go! thank you for the great tutorial
charles - June 2, 2009 at 7:23pm
i was curious when you restored in itunes what version were you using? 8.0 or 8.1?

sam tubman - May 7, 2009 at 3:39pm
do you have to use the original sim card when updating (restoring) the iphone and trying to activate it? as i only have an o2 sim card and not the original sim! please help thanks
paui - May 10, 2009 at 3:40am
no. once you're done upgrading the fw itunes, it will lead you to app store and, naturally, it won't recognize your sim card. eject your iphone from your itunes, close itunes, and run quickpwn. just follow the instructions on this site. :)
suchard - May 3, 2009 at 8:04am

Alexander - May 1, 2009 at 1:38pm
NEW SIM CARD DETECTED Message EMERGENCY CALL ONLY screen??? I KNOW HOW TO FIX THIS ISSUE!!!!!--- Okay there are some people saying to switch SIM cards before QuickPwn. LISTEN TO ME AND YOU WILL HAVE YOUR PHONE UP AND RUNNING. Okay, During STEP 2 have your ATT sim card in your iphone when you hit your SHIFT RESTORE. While your computer is extracting the file quickly place your T-Mobile SIM CARD. Let your iphone restore while your t=mobile sim is in the iphone. Continue to follow the instruction listed above and trust me IT WORKED FOR ME!!!
Frank - May 1, 2009 at 9:25am

hi niall, i have the same problem. when i connect to i tunes it says SIM not supported. How do i unlock my phone from this stage. pls pls help if you got the answer and fixed your iphone. regards nabeel
nabeel - April 22, 2009 at 11:51am
hi, I have unlocked my iphone after a very long time. Try downloading Ziphone GUI 2.5. You need to downgrade your bootloader baseband which can be found under advanced features. let me know if you got it. For the amount of irritating days i spent trying again & again , i think I can write a book by now!

I noticed when I upgraded itunes this morning they are on version 8.1, will this matter if I am upgrading from 2.1-2.2? Or should i wait for dev team to put out a new update before i screw up my phone?
kw - May 30, 2009 at 12:29am
