Camera Roll Empty After Jailbreak?
@planetbeing: “Camera roll will be empty if the jailbreak is incomplete. Rerun the app once to fix, and then another time to complete jb.”
iPhone 4S Software Unlock
If you don’t have a carrier unlocked iPhone 4S, you might want to keep your iPhone 4S in software unlockable condition in case of international travels:
- iOS 5.0 users should stay with it
- iOS 5.0.1 (9A405) users should stay with it (Baseband / Modem Firmware 1.0.13)
- iOS 5.0.1 (9A406) users should revert to 9A405 version of 5.0.1 right now because Apple is still signing both versions of iOS 5.0.1 at this time. That allows baseband downgrade to a “safer” 4S unlock BB / Modem Firmware. Guide coming soon.
You can find your version number by going into iPhone
Settings > General > About, and look at Version
There is no iPhone 4S unlock right now, but if you stay with the recommended iPhone 4S baseband you have a much higher chance of getting software carrier iPhone unlock.
