    I searched on the web and all the tutorials are for American carriers but there is not a generic explanation of the process. I patched the commcenter, installed ifile, and now? All i know is my carriers apn is antel.lte, so, do i copy the 41 & 42 files from Att, Telcel or whomever in the world that has Lte enabled and change the apn line?
    Btw, for some odd reason, I found 2 bundle folders for my same carrier Antel with different names...

    You might need to call the carrier to activate lte on your plan

    I ve seen that thread long ago and you can see that nobody responded me. I cant find a tutorial on the web and it seems it is very simple.

    Ok here what worked for me on iPad mini and iphone 5 which were on iOS 6.
    (Translated from my post at http://forum-iphoneaddict.fr/topic6580.html)

    1. Install CommCenter patch versie 6.1r1-13
    2. With ifile, navigate to /var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundle.bundle/
    3. Click on Carrier.plist and chose to open with the property editor (backup this file first)
    4. Click on + and add a key named Show4GSwitch, of boolean type
    5. Save and put the switcher of this new key on green.
    6. Delete the folder named Overlay in var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundles/ (backup the folder first)
    7. Reboot
    8. Reset network settings
    9. Reboot again and the LTE switch should be available in the settings.

    Please let me know if it works.

    You mean to erase 2 files called: overrides N41 N42 plist and pri?
    When adding that key, i didnt find at the ATT bundle for example where it says Show4gswitch. So where do I have to add it?
    On the only other one tutorial I found on the web, for doing this outside the US was in Sweden, and it says to copy: overrides N41 N42 plist and prifrom another bundle and add our apn but the weird thing is that if you copy from another bundle, it doesnt come with the apn from that other carrier...
    C`est rare que à la France tu dois le faire aussi pour ton carrier...

    Try to follow the steps.

    And no don't delete these files. The only thing you have to delete is the folder overlay. It will be recreated after last step.

    In France LTE setting was not pushed on iOS 6 for Bouygues. As I wanted to keep the jailbreak, I found this patch.

    And what if I install on my PC the iPhone Configuration Utility and then connect the iphone to the computer? Will this program install the new and updated carrier bundle from my carrier Antel?
