      It's GeoHot so I'm sure he'll hack the next firmware too, right(?)
      Look what came about by holding off on the untethered iPod touch 2G jailbreak: an untethered 3GS jailbreak! (for the time being). When the 2G untethered was released, 3GS' were already in production. Now I might have to whore myself out to AT&T in order to use version 4.0...

      I just unlocked my 3G 8GB for t-mobile using blacksn0w. Now I can send texts but can't receive and also can make calls but cannot receive? I tried to reset the network settings and restarted the phone.

      Any ideas on how to fix?

      Thanks in advance.

      so w/the newly shipped 3GS iPhones out now w/the new bootroms.....can they be jailbroken with this new blackra1n or not? regardless of what firmware they come with, can they be jailbroken? i'm on at&t so an unlock isnt needed, however, can they also be unlocked w/the new bootrom?

      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?

      worked great!

      only glitch i encountered was that on win7 premium with my 3G, upgrading from 3.0 to 3.1.2. I selected Cydia, Rock, and sn0w, and it hung up on sn0w for a while, so I closed blackra1n (hit the home button) and opened it again, selected only sn0w, and it worked fine.

      thanks Geo!

      try a fresh install of your firmware 3.1.2 using DFU mode then install back blackRa1n to jailbreak & blackSn0w to unlock. This works for me!

      Cheers!

      It's partially down pretty much nationwide. If you're having issues with T-Mobile right now after upgrading/whatever, it's a coincidence right now. Don't do anything yet.

      Look at that Geohot crashed TMobile with his unlock lol.


      (Confirmed here in Twin Cities TMobile is down. Several co-workers are not getting service on any of their phones.)

      As of now Geohot does not have a support forum.
      When he does have something set up I will help there. In the mean time the Dev Team have kindly offered to let me support Geohot's work on their blog at Dev-Team Blog - Baseband reprieve Thay see Geo's work as complimentary not competition, I hope everyone else does too.
      I am going to sleep now but hope no one has any probllem until the morning.

      Night all.

      GeoHot ! A donation is on the way!

      In the UK 32Gb 3Gs 3.0.1 on Vodafone

      Upgraded to 3.1.2 in iTunes, phone rebooted all OK, all contacts, sms, music, photos all intact

      I was suprised it booted up and didn't need activating / hactivating, everything worked except phone

      Ran Blackra1n, then ran Blacksn0w and rebooted

      Tethering options still there and worked first time,this was posted via Tethered connection as a test

      GeoHot, you are THE man!!

      Network Issue! T-Mobile has an outage right now. Just got off the phone with them regarding it. None of the 5 phones on our plan can make outgoing calls. But mind you they have been unlocked with Sn0w since 12 pm and were working fine up until an hour ago. Don't worry, just a network issue

      does unlocking the new firmware even do anything special for tmobile users? I mean does it make surfing the web faster or something or its pointless? Because then u can just continue using pwnagetool if the beseband version dosent do anything special...?

      No, there is nothing special. This is more for users with an upgraded baseband who need an unlock
