Enable MMS on 3.1.3
« on: February 26, 2011, 09:04:26 PM »
Below is a step by step guide on how I activated MMS and Video messaging on my 2G while running 3.1.3.

I decided to post this because for the past two weeks i have been scouring the internet for help. After many failed attempts this is what worked for me and maybe it'll answer many questions.

MY biggest problem that i had was that i was able to send pictures on 3.1.2, but could not receive due to a "Size or Resolution Limit", i still cannot get MMS to work on my phone under the 3.1.2fw.

Here is what i used:
Windows 7 Laptop
Iphone 2G Model A1203
Itunes 10
redsn0w 0.9.4

Files Needed:
iPhone1,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw------- I'll explain why
redsn0w 0.9.4
IOS boot loaders 39 and 46


First - I forced an upgrade to 3.1.3 through iTunes.
This caused my Jailbreak and Unlock to go away(Expected)

Second - Opened up redsn0w selected the 3.1.2 ipsw firmware.

For some reason the 3.1.3 would not read. I downloaded multiple files from different sites and they all did the same thing. I kept getting the file is not recognized error. Remember you will still have 3.1.3 but for some reason using 3.1.2 will jailbreak it and unlock it too. Don't ask me why, but it just did

Third - Completed the Jailbreak and Unlock through redsn0w (There is plenty of guides on that, so no need to add that information.

Fourth - Open Cydia and do all the updates

Fifth - Add the fallowing repositories to Cydia
Smart-Mobile.com
xsellize Repo
http://apt.thebigboss.org/repofiles/cydia/ ---- This one should be installed by default, if not just add it

Sixth - Power down phone after the repo's are installed and restart Cydia. I did this because for some reason the repo listing did not update until after the restart.

Seventh - Search and Install packages in this order.
>>>>>Activate MMS (2G) 3.1.3, found in Smart-Mobile repo
>>>>>Activate MMS Video 2g/3g, found in Smart-Mobile repo
>>>>>T-Mobile US Carrier, Found in BigBoss repo (This adds the MMS settings)

Up to this point is where i was stuck because the Camera button would not show and it did not matter how many times i would restart the phone the button would not show up. I had and was able to manually change all the MMS settings under the Network Data, but none of them would do anything.

A this point if the camera button does not show up try and re-install the "Activate MMS (2G) 3.1.3" a couple of times, re-starting the phone after each time and try to send message and see if the camera button shows up. It took me 4 times for it to show up.

Now that i had the button i still could not receive pictures because of that annoying "size or resolution error".

After looking through multiple forums, i assume that the error might be the different phone models, which would explain my some people can activate it easily and others have problems.

What i used to fix the problem was a fix in the XSellize repo called T-Mobile iOS4 MMS Fix and choose the one that says U.S.A only

After this is done walla, it now should work. If MMS settings dont work, uninstall file and install a different one from a different repo since there are multiple ones available. Some of them say ATT/tmobile carrier bundle or Carrier Bundle, but they all do the same thing, but might have different codes, since T-Mobile have 3 different APN's and a couple Proxies

On the pictures below you can see that the phone camera now has a "Camera/Video" switch witch i never saw before

GOOD LUCK MESSAGE ME IF YOU NEED HELP!!

IF You have problems take screen shot and send it to me. To take screen shot hold Home and Power/Sleep and the same time (Only works on 3.1.3)

Did you check messages part of Settings app and make sure MMS is on?

I added the leimobile repo and downloaded the simple mobile mms fix and it worked.  The same fix works for AT&T, but you have to go into the network settings and delete all text below wap.cingular.

Also, make sure MMS is on by going to Settings > Messages > MMS Messaging.

add this repository in cydia: beta.leimobile.com/repo

install the "simple mobile mms fix"

restart the phone

go to Settings > Messages > MMS Messaging (on)

go to Settings > General > Network > Cellular Data Network

Under MMS the apn should say wap.cingular

For all the lines under that delete all the simple mobile settings.  Once you do that, AT&T settings will automatically pop up.

Restart your phone, and voila!, working MMS on AT&T.  Let me know if this works or not.

Which version of iphone are you using?  And what carrier do you use?

And have you tried doing a reset? (hold home button + power button until phone turns off and turns back on)

<Sun Feb 27, 2011 1:59 am> [hr:4qvwt8gy][/hr:4qvwt8gy]

Also, I would uninstall any of the above fixes and then reinstalling one.  If you install more than one they will interfere with each other and will not work...

i am in the same boat. Have a 2G and cant get MMS to work.

there are two things that dont add up,

1) there is no package "Enable MMS 2G 3.1.3"

2) the toggle under Settings-messages to turn on MMS never appears.

is there a way to download older versions of whited00r.  i had MMS working on this phone when i had whited00r 3.4.1

This may be redundant, but I couldn't get MMS up and running either. I have a 3g. I tried downloading the patch from the repos that have already been listed and never could get the MMS "on/off" button to show.

On my iPhone 3G with 3.1.3 and Whited00r v4.2 (Full) The only way I could get MMS working with T-Mobile was by installing http://www.sinfuliphonerepo.com in cydia. After installing search for MMS & Tethering Settings for T-Mobile. Install this package, reset network settings and reboot. I can now send and receive pictures and text from any carrier.

Quick question. DOES anyone have AT&T that has WORKING MMS? I don't just mean working as in you have the camera button. But working as in.... You can send and receive MMS.

IF SO I need to know your APN settings PLEASE.

Never got MMS working. Obviously the APN settings I have tried (tried lots) haven't worked. >.<
