iTunes Carrier Update Error – Fix

I’ve been having this really annoying error lately ever since that carrier update that Apple released to add support for AT&T’s new microcells. The exact message is this:

iTunes could not update the carrier settings on your iPhone. An unknown error ocurred (0xE800003D).
iTunes could not update the carrier settings on your iPhone. An unknown error ocurred (0xE800003D).
This little guy

Having finally decided today to google around and figure out what the devil was wrong, I stumbled across this (coral) forum thread on macrumors and found that the problem is caused by the AT&T Carrier Logo package. The problem is that the carrier update doesn’t recognize the altered carrier settings. The solution is to uninstall that package via Cydia, sync with itunes and apply the carrier update, then reinstall the package. Boom, done.

  2. Many Many Thanks. Been messing with this sine yesterday afternoon. I removed the custom att logo and the update went perfectly.

  3. This saved my neck. Thanks. I was going nuts trying to figure this out, and it just so happened I had installed the custom logo in Cydia.

I have tried the 5.0, 5.1, 5.5 and the new “stealth 6.0” Im freakin going insane!!! Does the phone need to be connected to wifi? thats the only thing i havent tried. Any help would be appreciated!!!
