Hello everyone. I have an Iphone 5 unlocked with a GEVEY SIM, running on IOS 6.0.2. It will be safe to Jailbreak my phone? Will the GEVEY work after the Jailbreak? Thanks.

Of course :). The jailbreak is different from unlocking.

I konow that. Do you konow anyone who has an Iphone 5 unlocked with GEVEY and updated to IOS 6.1? It is safe to update to 6.1 ? I'm not sure how this GEVEY SIMs work. It will need a reprograming for the new Baseband from IOS 6.1 ? Thanks.

Hi. I made the Evasi0n jailbreak on my Iphone 5 decoded with Gevey and it works perfectly. How did you made the jailbreak? With the sim inside? I did the jailbreak with the sim inside. One thing i can tell you for sure. The Gevey sims are very sensitive. If you take it out too often, you may damage it. It happend to me. Try a new Gevey. The jailbreak dose not change your Baseband, so it should work.

It freezes at startup, so you don't get the home screen? It happend to me. Hold down the Power button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears. If this dosen't work, repet the process and while the phone is starting hold down the Volume + button. It may be something incompatible installed from Cydia. Try this method a few times.
