    Using Absinthe, I was able to unlock my iphone 4S (9A406, firmware 1.0.14), however when I use the local Sim Card, it goes to the activation process and says that the sim card is not valid.
    On the iPhone it shows range (antennas) and 3G and also the Carrier has been updated from US AT&T to the local carrier. Do you think I need to do any additional setting?. I have already done 2-3 restarts to check if the problem gets solved..but did not.

    • JaeM1llz says:

      You will need to buy a Gevey Ultra S SIM card if you wish to unlock the phone and use an unofficial carrier.

      I too got struck in same place.. but mine is 9a405 and firmware 1.0.13.. let me also know if anything worked out 😉

  16. […] now be on a factory 5.0.1 firmware(or whatever firmware you downgraded to) and you can go ahead and jailbreak with Absinthe or jailbreak with Redsn0w, whichever tool you'd […]

  17. I read from this site that jailbreaking is on its way down mainly because there is no iPhone 5 jailbreak or even iPhone 4S jailbreak. (untethered I’m assuming theyre talking about) Then i went on and there is a post saying the same thing. It even had Cydia founder Jay Freeman in the comments saying this is the problem at the moment also.

    Then I see articles like this that clearly show there is a iPhone 4S untethered jailbreak. I don’t understand? is there something wrong with this jailbreak? Is it not complete or something like that? Why are sites saying there is no iPhone 4S jailbreak yet
