      and whats the verdict on the wifi problems for the new bootrom 3GS, old bootrom 3GS, and 3G iphones? is it user error? or do you really need to reset your network settings everytime to get your wifi to work when you reboot the phone?
      3rd time...anyone?

      You keep posting but do you read the thread at all?

      They all can be jailbroken, just any from week 40 and beyond has to connect to a computer each time they reboot or the battery dies.

      I think its time now for everyone to take a deep breath, walk away from the computer and iphone, get a drink of cold water, stretch, and start at page 1 and start reading. Most mistakes people are making is because they have just jumped the posts instead of calming down and reading carefully. Good Nite!

      Yes, if you have the new bootrom, you need to re-run RC3 Blackra1n everytime you reboot your iPhone

      Good news: carrier name is back, wasn't working when using the dev's team pwnagetool.

      Bad news: youtube is not working while on wifi... I'm sure it's an easy fix; Will find out and report back.

      Same here, youtube isn't working while on wifi. Is anyone else having this problem?

      Btw, I have a 3GS and if some reason after running blackra1n and sn0w, the wifi is missing, just reset the network setting, That should fix it.
      Just what I needed

      The iPhone 2G has a different mobile phone chip to the chip used in the 3G and 3GS

      It is not possible to use the baseband from a 3G or 3GS in a 2G iPhone.

      Can you specify exactly what you mean? You want the 5.11.07 baseband in a 2g?

      Anyone hav a fix for the post I had put on like 1 or 3 pages ago. Every time I load blackra1n it keeps getting stuck on "Entering Recovery" and nothing is changing like others said would work. Right now I will check if will work on doing this on my XP. If u don't know what problem I am having right now, it's a few pges behind this 1

      ^We gave you some things to try. Did you?? You need to run Blackra1n from a fresh 3.1.2 restore
