LTE on Orange Switzerland

Orange announced it flipped the LTE switch to "on" in 10 Swiss cities, but sadly, iPhone 5 owners have to wait until apple releases a carrier update that enables our iPhone 5 to connect to it.
I didn't want to wait that long and here are the instructions I followed.
  1. patch the commcenter on your phone (to accept unsigned ipcc files).
  2. Enable iTunes to process ipcc files of your choice.
  3. Then follow instructions here to alter your orange ipcc file, I used the swisscom ipcc to alter mine. Or, download the file I cooked together here, and apply that. Reboot shouldn't be necessary but an Airplane mode on-off should do the trick.
  4. If you don't see a LTE icon on your phone, that probably means you are not in a LTE- covered area.
  5. Enjoy.
