hey guys...i have two 3g phones, mine and my gfs...anyways i updated, rejailbroke and unlocked mine without issue using an unactivated att sim without issue...but i'm having some trouble with my gfs phone...i took me three restores/jbs to get the "activation" message from att sim...after i got it all working i keep getting some "cannot to connect to itunes error" saying it can't connect to the phone, don't remember the error code off hand...and the phone went thru a 100% battery in the matter of 8 hours standby, no usuage...i watched it go down 4% in like 10 mins....my question is, could it be maybe ipsw related? i used the same exact files when i did my phone and nothings wrong with mine at all...she's never had this problem with her phone before...only after we updated it the 3.0.1...any suggestions?

EDIT: didnt realize you are looking for.9 only. You shouldnt have an issue with .9-1. Like Confucious said, this is a very small percentage of people who have the problem. But if her phone is running fine on .9 then there is no need to upgrade it
08-06-2009, 04:13 PM #383
I did in fact add the repo address and only .91-1 is available for me. I know confucious gives very good advice and is probably spot on that .91-1 works for the majority of people unlocking.
Although I still see a significant amount of people complaining on ultrasn0w's site. As said .9 works fine for my girlfriend right now (she is still on 3.0). If I took the step to upgrade her to 3.0.1 and have to use .91-1 ultrasn0w though her sim (China Mobile) could be one of the unlucky ones that have service and wifi problems.
The best thing I can think of really is merely to wait or hear from anyone else having success on .91-1 with China Mobile. So even though there's a risk, even in Beijing, of her being on 3.0 I'd rather not throw her service ability down the drain til a fix is out.
Edit: joining the editing party hahah I appreciate your responses still

Options that I turned down to stop draining the battery (still battery drains like hell after the upgrade to 3.0.1), and yes I always setup my phone as a new phone.
Wifi - Ask to join Networks - Off
Carrier - Manually Selected the Carrier (Not Auto)
Brightness - Lowered and kept to Auto Brightness.
Push Services - Deactivated.
Anyone else here noticed the faster loss of battery with 3.0.1?

Hey MR117 do you have a 3Gs or a 3G? macbook pro? which model? new osx update? Thanks for the info
08-07-2009, 04:09 PM #387
3G. 24" iMac, last year's model (so some of the new fancy stuff in Snow Leopard won't work).
This was a no-brainer (trust me!). I even did it again today - was screwing around with Cydia last night, it got funky, so I tried to reinstall it (as per a suggestion I found here), and knocked it into a cocked hat. Wouldn't load, or would try and fail. Finally restored to 3.0.1, then did the redsnow thing again. Interestingly, THIS time ALL my hacks were removed. Took only a few minutes to JB (the 3.0.1 obviously took longer - as did putting my music and photos back in; the rest of the re-sync goes quickly). Then it was back to Cydia to reinstall all, probably took less than an hour.
Why, what is your problem with the process?

I had a feeling it did it just as I was trying to re-install it (my Changes was giving me nothing). I got half-way through the process and it went to Home screen. After that, I couldn't get it to work at all. This morning, same thing. So I reinstalled and after I did, it worked fine. Bad timing, too much fooling with it, on my part.
Thanks for the update. I couldn't find any info doing a Search re it being down, including on its site on the web, which I couldn't access last night but could this a.m.

So I just jailbroke my 3G 3.0 firmware last week. If I update to 3.0.1, it sounds like my phone will restore and I will have to jailbreak it again. Is this correct? And if so...what happens to all of the stuff I downloaded from cydia, things I have in winterboard, and the awesome White Apple theme I finally got finished??
08-08-2009, 05:51 PM #391
Makes no sense to use 3.0.1 really, just stay where your at. Only a SMS fix and Cydia will have one available soon anyway.
If you update you will lose all your 3rd party apps and jailbreak/unlock
08-08-2009, 05:56 PM #392
however there are two apps you can use to backup your cydia apps called pkgbackup and aptbackup. pkgbackup (from what i've heard) works better but it costs $2 (i THINK).I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

Ok sounds good. So Cydia will put out the 3.0.1 update at some point? I'm not too concerned about updating, but wondered what happens when you do. Thank you!

There's a page on Cydia that says Saurik is working on an SMS fix though no further information is being released.

Ok, so a guy i know updated his 3G to 3.0.1, and well... he just did not understand... Is there a way i can down grade? Can I try to stuff 3.0 with pwnage back at it? Does not look like the baseband got updated... Sorry to ask this question.. I know it may sound dumb.. From what I can tell you can do some **** with 3.0.1 but I would like to put it back to 3.0
Thanks for your support.New unibody Macbook Pro, the jacked Model.. Iphone 2G, and 3G, 3G's, And 4G.

Why would you like to go back to 3.0? 3.0.1 is exactly like 3.0 except it fixes a vulnerability in which someone could hack your iPhone by sending you SMS messages.
Just stay on 3.0.1.
Just JB with redsn0w and give it 3.0 when it asks for the ipsw

Hey all, I wanted to thank everyone who helped me with my firmware download problem (I hit the thanks buttons too), now my new problem (and I hope this isn't a post that should be somewhere else) anyway since I've upgraded and jailbroke, I cannot theme my keyboard, no 5 row qwerty, no 3g storm, carbones ice keys, itoons keyboards, emoji, none work at all. I've gone into settings and made sure they are on in my international-keyboard settings, had them at the top of my winterboard, and at the bottom, what am I doing wrong? Are they not compatible w/ 3.0 yet?

Don't believe winterboard works with keyboards yet on 3.x
