      And as for the WiFi issues, I have a spare 3G lying around so I restored it fresh to 3.1.2, ran Blackra1n to jailbreak and then ran Blacksn0w....

      WiFi is fine and so is everything else

      Sorry Im kinda new to this unlock/jailbreak thing, but i know of blackrain and redsn0w.

      So this app will do both UNLOCK and Jailbreak in a single application ?

      most of what I read are user caused problems for the most part. You've been doing a great job King, that's why I left you be. You only pissed off a few people so far. lmao

      No. BlackRA1N does the jailbreak. BlackSN0W does the unlock.

      Make sure the permissions are set properly for what your copying over.

      Thanks for the clarification man.

      And blacksn0w is expected to be better than redsn0w's unlock due to ?

      Thanks

      If I am already unlocked with ultrasn0w with BB 04.26.08 and FW 3.1.2, the only real difference so far would be the carrier logo thus no real point in upgrading to use Blackra1n/Blacksn0w?
