    ssia...


    Are there any users currently using the iOS5 beta and the gevey SIM? I guess if that works, then the final build will have no issues?


    I just started using the Gevey SIM after moving to London a few weeks ago with my AT&T locked phone.

    Really excited for iOS5 coming out in a few weeks, hoping I will be able to use it right off the bat!

    :D

    iOS 5 blocks the Gevey from what i've been told.

    If you update to official 5.0 when it comes out your gevey won't work any more.

    Maybe the Dev Team will update PwnageTool and that'll allow you to update while saving your baseband (that is if iOS 5 is compatible with the older baseband).

    We'll have to wait and see what the Dev Team does.

    That's what I was thinking.
    Using maybe Pwnage or Tinyumbrella you can maintain your older baseband gevey might still work with 5.0 but we wont know for sure for a while.

    I thought Jailbreaking was always better than vanilla iOS software, why would you upgrade?

    Because vanilla iOS 5 will bring a lot of changes that will make a lot of us happy with the phone without the need to jailbreak.

    I wonder what all these "unlocking" shops around here in the UK will do.

    I walked into a couple this past week asking if they could unlock my iPhone and they are like yes of course and go grab a gevey SIM off the wall.. for £40.

    I'm like yeah no thanks bro I'm already using one! hahaha


    But when iOS5 drops they are all gonna be screwed :p

    As far as we know the Gevey is not compatible with iOS 5 but the Dev Team is always full of surprises so who knows. :) I can't see them supporting the Gevey though.
