    hi,

    i have jailbreaked (or jailbroken) my iPhone 5 (cdma & GSM) with taiga which has the iOS version 8.1.2. I hoped that the jailbreaking removes the branding of the carrier.
    Everytime when i try to insert a sim card from another carrier the iPhone restarts the activvation process, and when i remove the sim card the activation screen disappears and the normal start screen returns.

    Can someone help me?

    best regards,
    momo

    Jailbreaking alone does not carrier "unlock" a device.

    And there are no more software unlocks either.

    Why did you think jailbreaking your device would unlock it?

    If that were true there would be a lot more people jailbreaking their iPhones.

    No, you assumed wrong.
    Jailbreaking and unlocking are 2 different things.
    There hasn't been a software unlock via jailbreak in over 4 years now.
