Hello and Great news for all you Rebellers

We have collected very good Feedback from all beta testers for v64 of the rebel sim firmware.

V64 Beta can now be downloaded by all users To Try in the Rebel Sim Firmware Download Section

As you know thier 1000’s of types of network simcards designs in use worldwide.

The Rebel Simcard has provided support for more network simcards from around the world which can renew network simcard keys in the iphone 3G.

No other unlock simcard that is software upgrable like rebel simcard exits that provides thier users with the Free updates and with World First Solutions.

As users of other unlock simcards are aware of problems where renewing of network simcard keys is not possible and they need to take out the network sim place in  a 2g phone to get network back and then place thier network simcard back in the iphone 3G.

This process of manually having to obtian network keys in another phone and then placing back in the iphone 3G can be quite a pain staking task and now 90 percent of rebel sim users do not need to do this.

Rebel Sim added the network renew function back in the v57  and v61 firmware  and have extended the support for renewal in v64

This mean that being a rebel simcard user you are able to travel freely without the need to worry like other unlocking simcard users who dont have the peace of mind like you do that if your network is lost when using rebel simcard then it can be regianed automatically or by using the air plane mode on/off or a reboot of the iphone 3G at most.

We do have another firmware in beta testing the v71 which can Renew the Network if lost without the need to power on and off or use air plane mode on and off. As soon as we have enough feedback from the beta testers that the firmware has good compatibality all around the world we will release this for all users.

For now all Offical Beta Testers can Access this from the downloads section here

These are instructions on how to jailbreak and Activate your 3G iPhone to the 2.1-2.2.1 iPhone firmware using QuickPwn for Windows.

We always advise to use itunes to Activate you iphone 3G.

However many users who have purchased an iphone 3G from another country and do not have the orignal network simcard cannot do this on itunes online.

This Tutorial can Activate a non activated iphone 3g and also can jailbreak using the same method.

Step One

Create a folder called Pwnage on your desktop.

Download the following files and place them in the Pwnage folder you just created:

QuickPwn-225-2.zip

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO UNLOCK:

2.2.0 (3G): iPhone1,2_2.2_5G77_Restore.ipsw

FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT WANT TO UNLOCK:

2.2.1 (3G): iPhone1,2_2.2.1_5H11_Restore.ipsw

Extract the QuickPwn-225-2.zip file to the Pwnage folder.

Step Two

Connect your iPhone to the computer and launch iTunes.

Select your iPhone from the list of devices on the left. Now hold down shift and click the Restore button. Restore is preferred as it won’t create any wasted space on your iPhone.

Navigate to the Pwnage folder on your desktop and select the firmware ipsw. Click the Open button to continue.

Step Three

Once iTunes has finished updating your iPhone to the desired firmware you may launch QuickPwn.exe from the Pwnage folder on your desktop.

Step Four

Make sure you iPhone is connected to the computer and click the blue arrow to continue.

Step Five

Click the Browse button to locate your iPhone firmware.

Step Six

Select the firmware ipsw from the Pwnage folder on your desktop then click the Open button.

Step Seven

QuickPwn will check to make sure the ipsw is valid. Click the blue arrow button to continue.

Step Eight

You can now select whether to Add Cydia, Add Installer, or Replace Boot Logos. Select the ones you would like to perform then click the clue arrow button

Step Nine

QuickPwn will now ask you to confirm your iPhone is connected via USB before continuing. Click the blue arrow button to proceed.

Step Ten

QuickPwn will now automatically put your iPhone into recovery mode. Once its in recovery mode you will be prompted to: Hold the Home button for 5 seconds, Hold the Home and Power buttons for 10 seconds, then release the Power button and continuing holding the Home button until your iPhone is in DFU mode.

Watch the prompts carefully and follow along.

Step Eleven

Once QuickPwn detects your iPhone in DFU mode it will begin the jailbreak process.

Step Twelve

Once jailbreaking is complete QuickPwn will inform you that it was successfull.

DFU means Device Firmware Update. If a restore using Recovery Mode doesn’t work you will want to use DFU Mode as a last resort. When placing your iPhone into DFU Mode it does not load the OS before attempting the restore



To put the iPhone into DFU mode so you can do an iTunes firmware restore follow these steps:

Step One
Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your Mac.


Step Two
Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.


Step Three
After exactly 10 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.


The iPhone screen will remain black like this:


NOTE***: It may take a few attempts to get your iPhone into DFU mode. Generally, I hold down both buttons then release the Home button just before I think the Apple logo would appear. If you are still holding both buttons down and you see the Apple logo you are holding them down for too long!

Solutions Point Limited, UK today introduces its flagship product, Rebel Sim card which can bypass network locks on all mobile phones.

Rebel Sim card has been released today by Solutions Point Limited, UK, they claim this product to be in the line of those smart technological solutions who will bring a revolution in the mobile phone unlocking industry, it would revolutionarise the way people use their mobile phones, by bringing in options which were not possible before.

Rebel Sim card can bypass network locks on almost all phones available in the market till date, and it would also support 95% of upcoming phone models out of the box, without making any changes to Rebel Sim card.

Rebel Sim card is used in parallel to the existing sim card as its only 0.10mm thick, therefore can be inserted along with existing simcard in any of the mobile phones available throughout the world.
It can also be removed easily, without causing any damage to the phone and the phone does not lose its warranty!

Rebel Simcard is the World’s first sim card which is fully compatible with UMTS technologies, which means users will get the same quality of service as they would get with a fully unlocked phone.

Rebel Sim card is transparent to the mobile phone, it does not interrupt in any of the existing features the simcard or the mobile phone has to offer either it be emails, Wifi, Bluetooth, 3G, GPS or any other service, rather it enhances the existing features with its proprietary menu which gives the user a whole lot of control over how Rebel Sim card functions for a particular mobile phone.

Rebel Sim card is backed up by experienced and highly skilled development team along with hundreds of beta testers throughout the world, who test Rebel Sim card on almost any new phone which is released in any part of the world.

Rebel Sim card also has a STK menu, Apart from giving better control to the end user on the Rebel Simcard features, This menu enables it to run high security applications like banking services, transactions etc, moreover it enhances the existing network simcard by adding more features to it, like Value Added Services, Telecom applications, Logos, Ringtones etc. This makes it a one and only choice for MVNO’s who are trying to discover new lands and increase their market share.

However the technology behind bypassing of network locks on a mobile phone looks rather complex and is no way a game of a common man, but by bringing the ease of use and simplicity Rebel Sim card provides to unlock a mobile phone to common people who know nothing about this technology, depicts a fine example, how difficult things can be made so simple by people who are behind such technologies and are working hard and writing new rules of the game
