GEVEY Supreme Pro Plus for iPhone 4 – Review

by Mahesh Kukreja · 46 comments

in Apple


Previously, GEVEY and GEVEY Pro were available for unlocking iPhone 4. They provide a tethered solution for unlocking iPhone 4. Later, GEVEY Supreme Pro Plus was released which was supposed to be an untethered solution for unlocking iPhone 4 on basebands 02.10.04, 03.10.01 & 04.10.01. My Twitter friend, @hiteshagnani got lucky to lay his hands on GEVEY Supreme Pro Plus sims. He also provided me a review of the sim, and here it is..

GEVEY Supreme Pro Plus

As you know we were told that we don’t need to dial 112 for Gevey Supreme and it was also mentioned on the package, but that is not true. Here are some facts about GEVEY Supreme

1. You need to dial 112 for the first time followed by the same GEVEY procedure, and by first time I mean when you insert your sim card for the first time. You’ll need to repeat this 112 procedure when you replace the sim card with some other sim

2. If on reboot the network doesn’t show up, you need to reboot your iPhone

3. After reboot you need to repeat the 112 procedure and after NETWORK shows up, DIAL *000 and hang up

4. After dialing *000, your iPhone will get Network every time after REBOOT (Wasn’t mentioned by the manufacturer)

5. This is how it works it does give you Untethered Unlock. These were some untold facts about GEVEY Supreme Pro Plus

About the network:

Gevey Supreme gives a stable network

About GPRS:

The manufacturer mentions the need to dial *112 for GPRS to work. But I didn’t find a need to do that for GPRS. All I did was switched on Data Roaming & Cellular Data Network and it worked.

About Verification:

It comes with a Serial key on packaging which can be verified on gevey.us

Conclusion:

GEVEY Supreme Pro Plus is bit Supreme than the Original GEVEY. Though it’s not from the manufacturers of GEVEY & GEVEY Pro, it works & is reliable. Unlike Rebel Micro Sim, it serves the purpose of Untethered Unlock for iPhone 4.

GEVEY Supreme works on iOS 4.1, 4.2, 4.3.3 on basebands 02.10.04, 03.10.01 & 04.10.01 respectively.

How To Buy GEVEY Supreme Pro Plus?

If you are from India & want to buy GEVEY Supreme Pro Plus, you can contact @hiteshagnani on Twitter. He’s has got a wholesale lot directly from Gevey.us, the original manufacturers of GEVEY Supreme Pro Plus. The price is Rs. 2000 or about $40 USD. I’ll be getting my review copy of GEVEY Supreme soon & I’ll try to post a video demo also. Stay Tuned till then!

So you’re stuck on activation screen. You need original carrier’s sim to activate, or you must build custom firmware via sn0wbreeze & select “hacktivate” option.

Yes it can, but you must create custom iOS 5 via sn0wbreeze.

Hi,

I’m also getting the same error while trying to upgrade to iOS 5.0.1. I think Apple’s servers are down. Try again in some time.

Have tried to jailbreak my IPHONE4 by creating custom firmware via snowbreeze, but i am getting an error message on my Itunes that “The Iphone “IPHONE” could not be restored. An unknown error occured (3194)”

After which i have tried working out by updgrading my itunes to latest but still am getting the same error.

Please HELP!!!!!!!

Reply

Admin November 19, 2011 at 5:31 pm

If you’re trying to upgrade to iOS 5.0, you cannot do so because Apple has stopped signing iOS 5.0. Now you will have to create custom iOS 5.0.1 and restore to that.

Sanjay November 19, 2011 at 7:19 pm

I am trying to create custom firmware IOS 4.3.3, as i am having Gevey supreme pro & i am the above mentioned prompt while trying to restore, can you please guide me further on this

Is there any alternate method to unlock iphone without getting the 3194 error????

I have tried greenpoison but its not working, with snowbreeze i am getting 3194 error ???

Please help

Thanks

You need shsh blobs of 4.3.3 if you want to restore to iOS 4.3.3. Were you on jailbroken 4.3.3 previously? If yes, add the following line to your hosts file & then try restoring to 4.3.3

74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

Reply

Sanjay November 19, 2011 at 11:17 pm

No my iphone was never jailbroken its factory locked

I need to jailbreak it as i dont have the original carrier sim

74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com line is already present in my host file

Please provide any other alternative

Reply

Admin November 19, 2011 at 11:46 pm

If it was not previously jailbroken, you cannot restore your iPhone to 4.3.3. Which iOS are you now on?

Sanjay November 19, 2011 at 11:54 pm

dont know how can i find it?

its factory locked

its asking to insert an valid sim

Reply

Admin November 20, 2011 at 12:46 am

Ok, so now you must create custom iOS 5.0.1 using sn0wbreeze. You can search for the tutorial on this blog. I’ve already posted one. And while building custom iOS 5.0.1, you must select hacktivate option. Then restore to this custom iOS 5.0.1 using iTunes.

After the restore, your iPhone will be havktivated and it won’t ask you for any sim.

Sanjay November 20, 2011 at 12:47 am

i hav created custom firmware to jailbraek so that i can unlock my Iphone 4 using gevey sim supreme but m not able to do so as i m getting the above mentioned 3194 error also my host file has above mentioned line even have tried upgrading my itunes but that doesnt work as well

Plz suggest other method

Reply

Admin November 20, 2011 at 12:52 am

You cannot restore to 4.3.3 now. You must build custom iOS 5.0.1 & remove that gs.apple.com line from your hosts file before restoring to custom iOS 5.0.1.

You’ve listed the price as Rs. 2000/-, but on eBay, it’s available for as less as Rs 397/- , such as here:http://www.ebay.in/itm/Newest-Gevey-Supreme-Unlock-Sim-iPhone-4-Upto-4-3-3-/260828800957 Do you think it’s reliable? I’ve already bought a Gevey Ultra that fails to work in either auto or manual mode, i don’t want to waste any more money.

Admin December 16, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Hi,

The post is old, hence prices are not updated. That Gevey on eBay is probably cloned one. But it’ll work though.
