    Default 3G 2.0.2 boot in verbose mode??
    Anyone know if we can set the 3G, 2.0.2 to boot in verbose mode?

    I like the look of this when it is booting up.

    In the 1.1.x days you could open Terminal and enter nvram boot-args="-v" and then whenever you booted up the iPhone it would be in verbose mode.

    I know you had to have BSD installed for this to work.

    I try entering this command in Terminal now and I get an error saying "Error (-1) setting variable - "boot-args".

    Any suggestions?

    anyone?

    as far as im aware, u cant boot into verbose mode since 1.1.5 and 1.1.4

    seems they changed sum file access.
    i imagine it will be able 2 soon

    theres a program called 'power tool' which has the ability to boot verbose on 3g and 2.0.2

    but its not been enabled yet

    its not a file access thing. apple patched up the ramdisk hack (used in Ziphone, iLiberty, etc) by not letting iBoot (the main bootloader) accept arguments. this includes the "boot-args" argument. the only way to change this would be to patch iBoot to accept arguments which is a bit out of our league.
    hit thanks if thanks are due.

    No. Boot arguments cannot be enabled, and the bootloader has become mostly read-only. You'd have to do a very complicated ramdisk upload to patch it so that root could change arguments.

    yeah I got that too. If you login as root (using 'su' command) it won't give you errors, but it won't work either

    When asked what he would say to the columbine killers, Marilyn Manson said, "I would say nothing to them. I would listen to what they have to say, because that's what nobody else did" from the movie Farenheit 9/11
