How To: Enable LTE on iPhone 5 for T-Mobile

 

UPDATE 3/31/13: Now a super easy way to install. Just install the CommCenter Patch and the LTE enable from out repo. This will be a better solution for people who want to enable LTE on their unlocked iPhone 5. Not only does it save people the time and hassle of having to go into the iPhone’s system files, but it also creates an automatic backup of the original carrier.plist should the choose to revert.

Here are the steps to follow:

1. Open Cydia
2. Tap “Manage” and then tap “Sources”
3. Tap “Edit” then tap “Add” and put the following URL into the text box: http://v.backspace.jp/repo
4. Once the URL is entered in tap “Add Source” and allow for it to download all of the repo’s info and packages.
5. After your iPhone has refreshed, tap the v.backspace.jp/repo field or go to the search bar and find the package CommCenter* patch…
6. Once you have found it, install it and then reboot your iPhone once completed.

7. After the iPhone has restarted, open Cydia once again.
8. Tap “Manage” and then tap “Sources”
9. Tap “Edit” then tap “Add” and put the following URL into the text box: http://beta.leimobile.com/repo/
10. Once the URL is entered in tap “Add Source” and allow for it to download all of the repo’s info and packages.
11. After your iPhone has refreshed, tap the LEIMobile field or go to the search bar and find the package LTE Enabler for T-Mobile…
12. Once you have found it, install it and then reboot your iPhone once completed.

13. After the iPhone restarts, allow it to acquire signal and display the T-Mobile logo then go to where you edit the APN settings (Settings –>General–>Cellular) click reset network settings. Once that is done, enable the LTE toggle and you’re good to go. The APN to connect to T-Mobile LTE is fast.t-mobile.com and the apn for Internet Tethering on T-Mobile is pcweb.tmobile.com

 

Update 3/28/13 Part III: Updated the main file to fix a calling issue as people were still reporting it. ISR for LTE wasn’t enabled. The Phone, rather than connecting to the strongest signal for voice, remains connected to the LTE tower during calls and reduces call quality. The latest fix enables ISR. Just follow the instructions below the red text to install the latest version.

 

Update 3/28/13 Part II: Everyone Just follow the original instructions below the red text to install the new files over the previous ones. There should now be 4 files instead of 3. We added a carrier.pri file.

 

UPDATE 3/28/13: THE text in RED is instructions ONLY for people who installed the initial fix we released. If you are brand new or unsure proceed with the 15 step instructions below the RED Text

Users have reported bad calling quality, inability to make/receive calls, and downgrading to 4G HSPA+ while on a phone call. We did take note of the issue and took a close look at the LTE coding. VoLTE (Voice over LTE) was enabled by mistake but has been fixed in this updated version. Please follow the below instructions to fix this issue. If you have any other concerns or problems please leave a comment below.

1. On your iPhone please tap this link: http://iphone2.googlecode.com/files/T-Mobile%20LTE%20V2.zip
2. Tap “Open in iFile” and once in iFile tap “Unarchiver”. A new version of the “Overrides_N41_N42.pri” will appear.
3. Tap the clipboard icon at the bottom and tap “cut”
4. Now tap “done” at the top and tap the house icon at the bottom then tap “Library”, then tap “Carrier Bundle.bundle” (the one with blue text), and then tap edit at the top again and tap the clipboard icon. Tap “paste” and it will auto inject the updated carrier file into the carrier folder. Be sure to chose the overwrite option.
5. After this has been done, exit iFile and reboot your iPhone. That’s it!

Did this fix your issue? Please let us know below in the comments section.

START HERE Manual method: 

So you purchased an unlocked iPhone 5 before T-Mobile released their new version of the iPhone 5 that supports 1700mhz. This could be the AT&T model or the officially unlocked version sold by Apple. Please understand that if you have a Verizon iPhone 5 you will not be able to connect to T-Mobile’s LTE network. It does not have the correct LTE band. Currently T-Mobile only has a few cities listed that have support for LTE and they are upgrading towers all year long.

Now that you have an unlocked AT&T model A1428 or an officially unlocked model A1428 you can proceed to follow the instructions below to load a custom carrier file onto your iPhone and enable LTE. This will only work on A1428 model iPhone 5’s.

This is the guide to enabling LTE on your iPhone 5 model A1428 for T-Mobile.

1. Open Cydia
2. Tap “Manage” and then tap “Sources”
3. Tap “Edit” then tap “Add” and put the following URL into the text box: http://v.backspace.jp/repo
4. Once the URL is entered in tap “Add Source” and allow for it to download all of the repo’s info and packages.
5. After your iPhone has refreshed, tap the v.backspace.jp/repo field or go to the search bar and find the package CommCenter* patch…
6. Once you have found it, install it and then reboot your iPhone once completed.

7. After the iPhone has restarted, open Cydia once again.
8. Search for iFile. The free version includes basic features. You will want to purchase it to take advantage of all of the features.
9. Once you have found it, install it. No reboot is required, though you can do it just to be on the safe side.

10. Once iFile has been installed, close Cydia and click on this file from your iPhone and click “Open in iFile”
11. Once you’re in iFile tap “Unarchiver” and 3 files will show up above T-Mobile LTE.zip
12. At the top, tap “edit”and tap the dots with a check mark next to carrier.plist, carrier.pri, overrides_N41_N42.plist, and overrides_N41_N42.pri
13. Tap the clipboard icon at the bottom and tap “cut”
14. Now tap “done” at the top and tap the house icon at the bottom then tap Library, then tap Carrier Bundle.bundle (the one in blue), and then tap edit at the top again and tap the clipboard icon. Tap “paste” and it will auto inject the carrier files into the carrier folder overwriting the other files. (you may want to make a backup of these files in case anything goes wrong or we have a backup below.)

15. After the files have been placed, exit iFile and restart iPhone. After the iPhone restarts, allow it to acquire signal and display the T-Mobile logo then go to where you edit the APN settings (Settings –>General–>Cellular) click reset network settings. Once that is done, enable the LTE toggle and you’re good to go. The APN to connect to T-Mobile LTE is fast.t-mobile.com and the apn for Internet Tethering on T-Mobile is pcweb.tmobile.com

 

Here is a link to the original file in case you run into any issues. Download the original carrier file here. replace carrier.plist with the file you just downloaded. You also need to delete any overrides_N41_N42 files and the new carrier.pri included in the Release 2 bundle that were placed in the Unknown.bundle carrier bundle.

If you run into any problems please leave a comment below. A rare issue that happens is that is doesn’t work while the apn settings tab disappears. A simple fix to this is to go into var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundles/overlay and delete any and all files in that folder and then restarting the phone 2 times. The first reboot you need to let it acquire signal. It will take awhile but will eventually acquire it. After the signal is found it will say T-Mobile 3G and then this will be where the 2nd reboot must be done. After the 2nd reboot it will acquire signal faster this time and display T-Mobile 4G. Once you see the 4G icon that’s when you know it has worked. But this is a rare occurrence but should be a disclaimer and this fix should be available to the people that install it.

 

 

[Thanks Joe Brown! for the initial fix! Thanks Sky Zangas for the Debian Package!]

  1. mattt says

    Quick question, would this get 4G on an iphone 4s with firmware 5.x ? also is there a speed difference between 3g and 4g?

        • mattt says

          got it! I just did a speed test between 3g and 4g and they seem to be the same when comparing my iphone 5(4g) vs a friends 4s(3g) on tmobile.

          • Joe says

            The iPhone 5 will actually gain a little bit better speed than the 4S as the 4S only supports a max of 14mbps down and the 5 supports 21mbps down. They are connected, though, to the same network but we implemented the HSPA+ icon to say “4G” rather than “3G” as HSPA+ is a 4G network standard.

      • De1968kjl says

        If I am on ATT, can I install this tweak to use t mobiles frequency, while still remaining with ATT? Thanks for the hard work!

    • Joe says

      This enables LTE on T-Mobile for the iPhone 5 so you will be able to see much faster data speeds than on HSPA+. 🙂

    • Joe says

      No, this is only meant for the iPhone 5 model A1428. Please do not attempt this on any other other device. Thanks.

  2. says

    hello, good work ! i have a question

    if i have a1428 from att fully unlocked , i can use this patch to join LTE from Cosmote Romania ? or i must do another settings ? in my country only a1429 works with LTE , but my a1428 not 🙁

      • says

        So I don’t know why but the LTE toggle is now gone, it just shows a 3G toggle now. Any ideas on why that is? I redid all the steps and its back now, but is there a permanent fix? also is there a way to keep T-Mobile manually selected so it doesn’t drop back to edge? the area i’m in only supports 3G on 1900MHz, but the speed test are consistent with my one S, any help is appreciated

      • Saoneniner says

        Hi Joe I successfully installed your Tweak on March 29. Is there any benefit from me applying your new release from the 31st

  3. Mike Lawrence says

    I have a new local carrier (Eastlink) that uses the 1700MHz band; any suggestions on what I’d need to do to modify this patch to work with this carrier instead of T-Mobile?

    • Joe says

      I don’t know anything about the Carrier so I couldn’t say nor could I support it by making a custom version for that carrier. You can try downloading the files to your desktop and editing the apns and the mms settings and see if that works but do this at your own discretion.

  4. Saoneniner says

    I wanted to revert back due to poor battery life on LTE (not currently available in my area) but now NOTHING is listed in carrier bundles (the blue file is gone). HELP PLEASE 🙂

    • Joe says

      Got to the directory System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/Unknown.bundle and delete the 4 files you put in it. Once that’s done, put the backup carrier.plist we have provided in the tutorial into the unknown.bundle folder and then follow the steps in the last paragraph of the tutorial to complete the process of reverting back. 🙂

      • saoneniner says

        Joe, Thanks for the quick reply!! What is the path for the unknown bundle that I need to paste the backup into. I am stuck with no data, APN editing etc….Phone displays 3g but no data…. Thanks Again!!

  5. Saoneniner says

    More specifically, /var/mobile/library/carrier bundles now only shows a folder named “Overlay” Everything else is gone. How do i get back my carrier bundles list?? thanks!!

    • Joe says

      You will want to go to System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/ Unknown.bundle and delete the existing carrier.plist, carrier.pri, overrides_N41_N42.plist, and overrides_N41_N42.pri files. nce that’s done you will drop the new backup carrier plist we have privided into the the same unknown.bundle folder you just deleted the tweaked LTE files from. 🙂

  6. David says

    Dose this work if I have the normal 70$ a month plan ? I have a jai broken iPhone 5 and thinking about makeing a swtich ?

  7. Kathy says

    Hi, I installed and it worked, but due to safe mode problems, I decided to uninstall. However, I no longer have Carrier bundle.bundle and so can’t put the backup file in it. I have read all comments on this post and tried everything (multiple times) that you have suggested to others with a similar issue:
    * I removed T-MOBILE MMS FIX prior to installation of LTE fix, and it remains removed.
    * I have gone over both the 2nd to last and last paragraph under the graphic multiple times, without success.
    * Unknown.bundle is present in System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone.
    * I’ve tried typing in the correct settings into APN settings, and they disappear on reboot (and often don’t even hold after leaving the APN settings).
    Can you please tell me:
    1. How do I get Carrier bundle.bundle back? Is this a folder I can create in iFile myself?
    2. What belongs inside of Carrier bundle.bundle, specifically, are there files other than carrier.plist, and if so, can I get those files from you or some other location?
    The other symptoms my phone has which are related to the uninstall:
    * 3G shows in the status bar, but I have no data connection. Same is true when I force Edge only. [Both 3G & Edge worked before install]
    * Message app opens white/blank and immediately closes.
    * Phone is receiving calls (thankfully 🙂 ).
    Can you give me some other guidance? Thanks!
    As an aside, I am also wondering if, perhaps, there might be two errors in the backup file (line 26 missing integer, line 490)? I have already tried it both ways (what I downloaded, and having fixed these lines), again without success.
    Thank you for any help you can provide.

    • Joe says

      1. To get that folder back you need to navigate to System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/Unknown.bundle and delete the four files you put in which are carrier.plist, carrier.pri, overrides_N41_N42.plist, and overrides_N41_N42.pri. After these files have been deleted you will want to inject the backup file we have provided in the tutorial for users who would like to revert back. Once all of this has been done, please follow the steps stated in the last paragraph of the tutorial. Thanks 🙂

      • saoneniner says

        Hi Joe, I deleted the files but I still do not have the folder described in step 14:

        “14. Now tap “done” at the top and tap the house icon at the bottom then tap Library, then tap Carrier Bundle.bundle (the one in blue), and then tap edit at the top again and tap the clipboard icon.

        How do I get this back? I will take the shorter battery life. Now I have no ability to edit APN, get data or MMS messages. How can I get back to the blue carrier bundle file??

        • Joe says

          You can repeat the tutorial and get the LTE package back and turn the LTE toggle off to save battery or revert back. When I said read the last paragraph in the tutorial I didn’t mean the actual steps. We have a disclaimer at the bottom of the article with trouble shooting steps that helps people with issues such as yourself. To revert back please do what I satated before and then follow these steps:

          Go into var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundles/overlay and delete any and all files in that folder and then restarting the phone 2 times. The first reboot you need to let it acquire signal. It will take awhile but will eventually acquire it. After the signal is found it will say T-Mobile 3G. This is where the 2nd reboot will happen. Once the iPhone has rebooted it will aquire signal much faster this time and now be reverted back to it’s original state.

      • saoneniner says

        SUCCESS!!!! Battery drain was NOT related to your Tweak….Followed your instructions, re-installed the tweak, EVERYTHING is working and back to normal!!! Thanks for your guidance!!!

      • Kathy says

        Hi Joe, Thanks for your quick reply. Unfortunately, I still can’t get stuff working again. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?

        Here is what I did:
        1. Went to System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/Unknown.bundle and deleted the one remaining file from the original injection and attempted re-injections, carrier.plist (carrier.pri, overrides_N41_N42.plist, and overrides_N41_N42.pri had been deleted previously) [some tries, I then rebooted, other tries did not]
        2. Injected backup file by: clicked link to “download original files”, choose open in iFile, chose unarchive, tapped edit, checked carrier.plist, tapped clipboard, chose cut, chose done, went back to System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone/Unknown.bundle, tapped edit, chose paste, chose done
        3. closed iFile, rebooted
        4. went into iPhone’s Settings app, to where I enter APN settings, and reset settings
        5. rebooted 2x
        Notes:
        A. At each step, never anything in var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundles/Overlay .
        B. Also nothing in var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundles other than Overlay folder.
        C. At end, nothing in Settings app APN settings. Tried setting, and they disappear.
        D. I also lost “Internet Tethering APN” settings when this all happened, and this is missing still.
        —- Still no Carrier bundle.bundle in blue
        —- iPhone status bar still showing 3G when wifi is off, but no data connection exists (same with Edge)

        Questions:
        What to do differently? Do I need to remove CommCenter patch? Do I need to reboot (or not) somewhere? Did I miss something you wanted me to do? I’m really stumped!

        Thanks!

        • Kathy says

          OK. Finally got Carrier Bundles.bundle back and with it came my Internet Tethering options and Personal Hotspot. Not sure exactly what I did differently, but it finally worked. Thanks for your help!

  8. Chris says

    Just a heads up. For those who cut their sims and only see 4G on their phone 5. Make sure you get a new nano sim from tmobile store. After replacing it I can now see LTE on my iphone. Thanks for this how to 🙂

  9. thomas says

    hey seen youtube vdeo on the LTE. so my apn is fast.tmobile and i seen the youtube video epc.timobile.? is there any differences?

  10. Joe says

    Very nice. Can’t wait till 4G LTE is available in my town. Then I can not only get faster speeds, but also begin work on the iPad version of this tweak 🙂

    • Joe says

      It may. I’ve heard Chicago has LTE spots that are still under testing but you can still connect to it. It’s worth a shot if you’re willing to try.

  11. Brian says

    I was wondering, I live in Hawaii and I’m pretty sure there isn’t any LTE here but it does say 4G but it still feels the same speed as when I had 3G. Is that normal ?

    • Joe says

      The “3G” icon had been changes to appropriately display 4G HSPA+ connection. It’s the same network but with the correct data icon.

      • Zack says

        Yes I have, when I click reset it puts it to etc.t-Mobile.com. I did all the steps exactly and did it on my sisters phone and had no issues.
        The LTE works for me but twice now it has switch from fast.t-mobile.com to the other setting. I had to type in fast.t-mobile on my own too because it doesn’t come up when I click reset

        • Joe says

          When this hack/tweak was in beta testing, I had the same problem with the old PANs sticking. The only solution that worked for me was what is mentioned in the last paragraph of the tutorial. If it doesn’t work for you then I am at a loss. All I can say is just enter them in manually and restart the phone. Hope this help 🙂

          • Zack says

            Thanks! I will do the last paragraph again. I guess if it becomes a problem, I can back this phone up to iTunes, remove the jailbreak/reset and I would be able to go back to the default settings and wait for the carrier update for it?

    • Joe says

      It will work on any iPhone 5 (A1428) but as far as the LTE goes, it depends on the city you live in. Check the list on the internet of the launched markets or call 611 and see if your area is launched yet. My area is about to be as I live near Dallas, Tx and LTE has been there for awhile now.

  12. says

    So this seems to work fine, however, I have to disable LTE (expected), go to carrier, disable auto, wait for Tmobile to pop up, select it, 4G shows up but then goes away shortly after. If I re-enable auto 4G comes back but eventually goes away. My area supports3G on 1900MHz and this somewhat fixes the issue of it going away quick but it does go away.

  13. Arram says

    So I finally figured out why it kept going to safe mode. Uninstall bitesms beta versions and install the bitesms public release of 7.4. Fixed it

  14. Joe says

    That’s what ISR in the new release was for. ISR finds a stronger signal, even if it means a non-LTE signal, and connect to it. If you are have inconsitanties like that, I would say the refarmed network is in your area but there are conflictions at the spot you’re located in.

  15. Joe says

    I don’t have Simple Mobile, however, on iDownloadBlog’s page covering this tutorial, customers on Simple Mobile said it worked for them. You can try it out and if it doesn’t work you can always revert back using our backup file in the tutorial. 🙂

  16. Jason says

    I thought the ATT and factory unlocked GSM versions work on Tmobile’s LTE out of the box? If so, why the modd above?

  17. swoosh0217 says

    I noticed when sending picture message, my camera is grayed out and I cant send any picture messaging. How do I enable my MMS and what APN should I put on the MMS?

    • says

      Install “LTE Enabler for T-Mobile USA” and reboot. After that go into Settings – General – Cellular – Cellular Data Network and the press reset settings at the bottom. After that reboot again and you will be good to go.

  18. CookieQ says

    My Carrier Bundle.bundle is missing. My 3G is not working now.. I tried to recover the original files but still not working..
    what can I do.. I am so regret.

  19. CookieQ says

    I think there was something wrong on my phone.. now, my Carrier Bundle.bundle is missing.. only Carrier Bundle (black) left.. And my 2G and 3G is not working now. I tried to recover files that provided on the website, but still not working. how can I recover my phone.

  20. Sam Dix says

    I’m as screwed as screwed can be. I’ve done this, it didn’t work after multiple attempts, and decided to undo it. But, I can’t. And now I’m so far down the rabbit hole I can’t see any light anymore.

    I no longer have carrier bundle.bundle. I no longer have unknown carrier. I no longer have any location to delete the files from and to restore the original carrier.plist. And I’m stuck with a 3G indicator on AT&T, and no actual accessible data.

    I need help. Professional help. Lots of it. Immediately. I will absolutely throw a hundred bucks at whomever can fix this. I can’t think straight anymore, and I know I’m completely out of my league.

    tunabomber@hotmail.com. Just email me and help me.

    • iPhone5SF says

      Why you stuck on AT&T? It is for T-Mobile SIM card. If you see it carefully with ifile, carrier bundle bundle is not a folder, it is a short cut, if you put t-mobile, may be it will link to xxx/iPhone/unknown.bundle, if you put AT&T SIM card, it will links to xxx/iPhone/att_us.bundle, may be you modified att_us.bundle with t-mobile zip files.

      • Sam says

        And if that’s the mistake I made, so be it. But it’s done, and I can no longer get back to the starting point.

        Does anyone know if I update to 6.1.3, and then restore from iCloud, will that put things back as they should be, or will the iCloud restore restore the problem I’ve created as well?

        • iPhone5SF says

          Try to ask someone using iTools or ifunbox or ifile, find the att_us.bundle at var/mobile/library/carrier bundle/att_us.bundle, ask someone copy this whole folder and send to you, then you try to phase to your iPhone old one. I am not sure that it works or not. In concept, it should works.

          • Sam says

            I’ve already taken the chance of updating to 6.1.3, and I’m restoring from an iCloud backup from a day before I made these mistakes. While I won’t be jailbroken again for a while, I suspect this will give my phone back to me, intact and operational.

          • Sam says

            Okay, the restore did the trick. Too bad I won’t be jailbroken for a while, but I’m happy to have my phone correctly operational as opposed to having to take a hammer to it and get an Applecare+ replacement.

    • iPhone5SF says

      You cannot modified with AT&T SIM card, because it will link to att_us.bundle. With carrier bundle folder, there are a lot of worldwide carrier bundle. First, you must insert the t-mobile SIM card first. And then it will be jump to xxx/iPhone/unknown.bundle

        • Joe says

          Sam you kinda jumped the gun a bit. I sent you the files and it would have solved your problem but you decided to restore instead, which is fine, but you seemed like you wanted to keep the jailbreak. I myself had this same problem yesterday while in the car (no computer access) but I always keep a backup of the original files and once I put them in and did a restart, it worked just fine. It shoud also be a given that this is for T-Mobile users as it says T-Mobile and not AT&T. It does say for unlocked AT&T users but that’s meaning unlocked AT&T users who arenow using T-Mobile on their iPhone’s. Sorry you had bad luck with the tutorial and that you decided to restore but it’s not meant for AT&T users.

          • Sam Dix says

            Thanks for sending the bundle, Joe. I really appreciate your help, and I did jump the gun a bit. 🙂

            I went ahead with the restore as I really wasn’t sure how I’d get the files where they needed to go even if I had them. You were right that I wanted to keep the jailbreak, but I wanted my phone intact even more, so that impulse won. I’ve lived without a jailbreak before, and I can do it again.

            As for this not being for AT&T users, I understood that. What I didn’t understand was that these changes in the tutorial must not be made with an AT&T SIM installed. I was trying out the T-Mobile network with a prepaid SIM yesterday, and read about these changes, and thought that they might improve the experience a bit. My mistake was that I read about these changes and decided to make them when my AT&T SIM was reinstalled.

            I hope that this precaution might be added to the tutorial to prevent accidents like this from being committed by dopes like me.

  21. Sam Dix says

    I’m so far past screwed I miss being screwed. I can’t even see screwed from here anymore.

    I’m thinking the only fix that remains is to restore. However, I’m hesitant to, because if I’m wrong, and I restore to 6.1.3, I won’t be able to jailbreak, and thus will have no way to use iFile. Without iFile, if I’m wrong, correcting this will be impossible from that point.

    Again, tunabomber@hotmail.com. I have to know I’m at least on the right path if I restore. Otherwise, I’m suspecting a hammer and a trip to the Apple Store are my last resort.

    • Joe says

      Did you install the LTE package from Cydia or follow the tutorial? If so, then try restarting your phone once more. If that didn’t change anything follow the instuctins in the last paragraph.

      • Chris says

        Thank you it worked. I restored the carrier.plist and followed everything in the last 2 paragraphs and then installed the package from your source and now i see the 4G! You are a genius. Thank you.

        • Joe says

          Not a problem. Always here to help. We wanted to make this much more simpler for our users. Enjoy your LTE 🙂

    Ok guys’s, since a lot fo you are having trouble with the guide we decided to make things a bit easier for everyone. Verizon users, you are include in this now too! From your iPhone 5, install CommCenter patch from v.backspace.jp/repo. After that is done add beta.leimobile.com/repo.

    -A1428 (GSM) users, please install “LTE Enabler for T-Mobile USA”
    -A1429 (CDMA and European GSM) users, please install “T-Mobile USA Carrier Bundle”

        No, the Verizon iPhone will never be able to support GSM carrier based LTE, however, the package that we have available for Verizon iPhone users enables full functionality of HSPA+ and some other minor things. We didn’t want to leave Verizon users out of the loop so we encoporated all of the little goodies involved in the tweak, besides LTE, to be available for them as well. 🙂

          How about CommCenter patch, there are 6-7 files come with it, if I want to go back everything original. Can I uninstall CommCenter patch 6-7 files? And after installation of CommCenter patch, will it break the any security or safety of the iPhone?

          • Joe says

            Yes, once you uninstall the LTE package you can uninstall CommCenter patch and all of the files that came with it. No, there will be no security risks when doing so. 🙂

      Not too sure. T-Mobile did release LTE in NYC but the exact coverage is still unknown and they are rapidly releasing LTE right now. It’s worth a shot. Instead of the tutorial, please use the repo from now on and add beta.leimobile.com.repo and installe LTE Enabler for T-Mobile USA. Make sure to have CommCenter patch installed as well. Good luck! 🙂

        I tried adding the source in cydia nd it gives me an error it say patch couldnt be fetched or somting like dat

        • Joe says

          It might be overwhelmed right now. We just released this within the past couple of hours and people, especially Verizon users, have been waiting for this solution to be released since we put this tutorial up. Keep trying and it should work. http://beta.leimobile.com/repo/

      Odds are you will not see LTE yet but in the near future you will. If you don’t want LTE but still want to see when you are connected to HSPA+, fix MMS, etc I would install “T-Mobile USA Carrier Bundle”.

        • Joe says

          The you don’t live in a modernized market and will continue to see EDGE 2G. You won’t see HSPA+ nor LTE for quite some time. Only major markets and their suburbs are recieving LTE this year.

          • Joe says

            I know NYC has LTE. I just don’t know exactly which parts of NYC nor which suburbs have LTE right now. That’s a question for tech support as they can tell you.

          • says

            You will see HSPA+ 4G in NYC and in select areas LTE. LTE will be very spotty and you might not see it at all but you should have 4G for the most part.

    I was wondering, after I installed this, my YouTube wouldn’t load HD videos. Like even if I put it in 3G unrestrictor. Can I get some help on this ?

  24. Jesse Garcia says

    Everything went smooth but service is very choppy 4g. And The 3G has not poped up at all since I did this. Is that a normal thing ? It will now only show 4g.

    Can someone answer my question here. So I have a unlock/ jailbreak iPhone DID this and now getting LTE . Is there any different form the update? i kno i get to keep my JB but anything elsa different?

  27. jose says

    i did it on my iphone 5 on verizon and i get 4g but not lte also when you turn on lte on my says 4g why is that but is giving me a 16 kbps so i guess workes but is normal having the enable 4g instead of enable let? thanks

    • says

      Did you read the guide, it very clearly says not to do this on a Verizon iPhone 5. Please undo the steps as you are enabling a useless Radio and will never get LTE.

  28. says

    Hey guys is the commpatch necessary? I did install the carrier bundle, and see enable lte in settings as well as 4g next to tmobile at the top, do I need to install it or is not necessary, btw I did see a glimpse of lte but lte isn’t available yet where I am.
