    I'm gonna introduce myself a little bit, first of all excuse me for my english I'm french, I'm happy to join this comunity it's my first message here I'm new in Apple I never had an iDevice(I love Apple it's quality stability easy to use and good looking) I'm gonna make an app with Swift (I'm coding a little bit) with an Hackintosh I'm trying to install Yosemite on my PC :p I'm also from XDA I loved to tweak my old Android devices and I hope I could do it soon on my iPhone but I'm having a problem to set it up, here it is:



    Does someone know a solution to this problem please :

    I recently acquired a simlocked unconfigured iPhone 4S, I guess it's on iOs 8 but I don't know the exact version, and I don't have valid SIM card to set it up;
    I searched a lot on Google but I can't find a way to set it up without SIM card. (I don't know the exact version and redsn0w.us says the software redsnow can't actualy jaibreak my phone)





    So I hope someone could help me... :(

    Thanks

    Hi


    Your going to need to activate the iPhone with a valid sim.

    Then the answers to your questions will be forthcoming.

    If you are on ios8, and on 8.1.2 or lower, you will use either Taig or Pangu.

    He cannot use taig or pangu unless he activates it first and gets into the home screen.
    Anything is hypothetical cause if he's on 8.2 or higher he's sol.

    Thanks you guys I found a valid SIM today and I also jailbreaked it using Pangu :)

    I'm looking for a way to unlock it but without success, I think I'll have to downgrade it to iOs 5 and use SAM :/

    You can't downgrade. It's not possible any more.

    That doesn't matter. Apple stopped using blobs and went to APTicket with iOS 7. Unless you have an iPhone 4 and not a 4s, you still can't downgrade. The 4 and below still can because downgrading uses a bootrom exploit. But that exploit was patched with the 4s and above.

    Negative.
    There is no way to unlock it via software hack.
    Even if you could (you cannot) downgrade, the SAM unlock exploit has been patched and disabled years ago.
    Your only options are an IMEI unlock or gevey sim adapter.

    Not even iOS 7, they would still have to be signing iOS 6!

    OP, if you try that it'll force your iPhone into a recovery mode and the only option would be to upgrade it to 8.3. There is NO WAY to downgrade an iPhone 4s. NO WAY.

    No.

    If just anyone could there would be widespread abuse.

    There is no imei changing unless you change the hardware.
    And no unlock.
    You should have researched all that before you got stuck with a useless device.
    And no downgrade and no icloud removal and no activation without a sim.
