    I installed 5 beta 7 following your previous video and everytging was fine, just that my iphone oouldn´t recognize my SIM card (from another carrier) and even if I have jailbraked my iphone several times successfully.

    Now Im back to 4.3.3 and my SIM card still fucked up. Is good that it s up to US to follow this in our own risk.

    How to fux this? I´m still checking several videos trying to find out the way to make it work.
