After the introduction of the new GEVEY Ultra SIM Cards, we received a lot of reactions of readers who wanted to know if they could use GEVEY without jailbreak. The answer is simple: Yes, basically you can use GEVEY without jailbreak, but not in every case.
The site of Applenberry states that a jailbreak is not needed to use one of the Ultra SIM cards. That is basically true, but only in the case if you have an original SIM card to activate your iPhone, or your iPhone is already activated.
Ok, sounds great, but if you don’t have your original SIM at hand, you are forced to jailbreak your iPhone before you can use your brand new GEVEY Ultra SIM. When you perform a jailbreak, you actually hacktivate your iPhone as well. Hacktivation means bypassing the emergency call screen and getting access to the Springboard apps.
If you don’t have access to the settings-app from your springboard, you cannot put your iPhone in Airplane Mode, which is necessary in the process to use your GEVEY Ultra SIM.
Using GEVEY without Jailbreak Only Possible If:
- If you have an original network-card, you can use GEVEY without jailbreak
- If you don’t have an original network-card, you must jailbreak your iPhone first.
Important News About GEVEY Ultra 5.1:
The recently announced GEVEY Ultra 5.1 is not working anymore. Apple fixed the bug GEVEY was using. GEVEY stated on his blog:
Unfortunately, the GEVEY™ Ultra 5.1 for GSM iPhone 4 will no longer unlock the iPhone 4. The unlocking mechanism used in this model was based on Loktar Sun's discovery of an Apple server logic error that took advantage of an ICCID bug to unlock the iPhone modem firmware. On April 27, Apple fixed this bug.
Apple N Berry, LLC is accepting returns for all GEVEY™ Ultra 5.1 for GSM iPhone 4 purchased on our website. Customers who haven't received their shipment yet will automatically receive a full refund via their payment method chosen during checkout.
Important to know also, is the fact that the other cards still work. This recall is ONLY for the GEVEY Ultra 5.1 for the iPhone 4. With the other cards available from the site of Applenberry, you can still use GEVEY without jailbreak.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
