      Geo rocks, 3gs 3.1.2 BB 05.11.07 straight out of the box on o2 jail broken with Blackra1n yesterday, unlocked today with blacksnow everything working as it should, no network problems.

      Just a quick update on my post above, noticed this morning that wi-fi was droping in and out, reset network settings as was suggested, rebooted the phone and it went into a continuous reboot cycle, itunes was not noticing the phone at this point, managed to get the phone into recovery mode and did a complete re-install, have now used Blackra1n & snow to re- jailbreak & unlock it's been almost 8 hours and the phone seems to be behaving it's self

      hey guys, I'm still running OS 3.0 and have an important question before I update:

      If I do this upgrade, will I still be able to native tethering like I can on 3.0? I had read that Apple had disabled native tethering in OS updates after 3.0, so I've refused to update (I don't want to lose the apple tethering, which is much more stable than apps like PdaNet). It's just too much of a blessing to lose because Apple/AT&T decided they didn't want it.

      If anyone can give me insight with regards to native iPhone tethering with this update, I'd greatly appreciate it.

      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.
      instead of reseting the network settings just restart ur iphone, same thing happened to me

      It's not quite the 'battle' you seem to think it is. I have the greatest respect for the Dev Team and their work as you know - but Geohot has asked me to provide support for BlackSn0w as well.
      Just because I'm a Dev Team fanboy does not mean I can't be a Geohot fanboy as well.

      They both have done more for me than I can ever do in return.

      Please
      I already was jb by blackrain but removed it after install. I went to cydia and added blackrain.com as a source. Then downloaded blacksnow. I did not reinstall brn to get the icon on the iPhone. I only installed BSW thru cydia. Am I unlocked? Was there another step needed with a icon or something? Thanks

      If you have an iPhone 3GS with iBoot-359.3.2, Blackra1n RC3 can only perform a tethered jailbreak. This means you need to connect your iPhone 3GS (only new iBoot) to your computer and use Blackra1n everytime you boot.

      if you were already on atnt with there plan and you wanted unlock just to be unlocked in case you need it in the future will this mess up your service

      My Wifi problem starts after I restart my iPhone. No wifi so I go to setting->Wifi where it briefly searches at "choose a network" then is unable to finding anything?

      Any idea's how I can fix this as it's doing my head in and I've tried it 5 times. BTW Installed Unlock direct from Blackra1n if that helps.

      Cheers in advance anyone
