    hey there,

    so i thought i just throw this in here cause i don't feel like getting another account to comment on dev-team's blog.
    anyways, i successfully jailbreaked 3.1 on my factory unlocked 3G.

    but, instead of everybody else it seems, i don't have any problems with my carrier text/logo showing. it's there just fine.
    once again i'm on a factory unlocked 3G, restored to official 3.1 first, and then used a custom .ipsw to jailbreak.
    no carrier text/logo issues! it's shows up as it did before on 3.0.

    my thoughts on this:
    #1 maybe my carrier still shows up cause i'm using a non-official carrier, e.g. the generic carrier bundle (which contains NO logo files, but get's the actual text to show from the carrier)
    #2 before using a custom .ipsw i restored to the official 3.1, which means i'm on bb 05.11.07 (which is of course the luxury of a factory unlocked phone) - so maybe this is an issue due to pwnagetool preserving the old bb

    nevertheless, it's a minor issue, but i'm glad my carrier text still shows up :-)

    It's completely different on factory unlocked phones as they don't have a lot of restrictions now placed on locked phones.

    For some reason my wifi always comes up as SUPER slow on these speed test things... It never really is that slow & is faster than a couple that got like 6mb on the speedtest. Like I've said before ... my stuff are weird...

    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

    Default went from 3.1 back to 3.0 (2gen iphone)
    i like a big dummy upgraded my iphone (original 2gen = 1gen . . non 3g) to 3.1

    BIG DEAL right . . I dont hav a mac machine and was basically stuck bc i dont know anyone with one either and seem like my phone was doomed well I found a 3.1 restored firmware (the one you have to download to jailbreak your iphone) and restored my iphone after putting in DFU mode in tunes . .

    after itunes didnt recognize my sim . . (tmo user) I put in DFU mode again and retored to a custom 3.0 firmware . . it went through and then I used redsn0w win0.8 and jailbroke it and unlocked and back safe again. .

    maybe this nothing special but I couldnt find any info about downgrading from 3.1 or maybe everyone knows this but in case im not the only retard i thought I share this hoping it can hep someone who did the same thing . .

    aha. well, i never heard that it's completely different on factory unlocked phones, besides the baseband obviously. what other restrictions are there on locked phones?
    i'm not new to this and i just thought i let somebody know.
    and since posts on the dev-team blog get easily overlooked 'cause it's incredibly crowded, i decided to post here.
    i personally don't think it's a bug in pwnagetool, but if my information is not of any interest than i'm sorry.

    My 2G has the logo, my 3G does not.

    Pwnage Tool took about 30 minutes to find my IPSW. Played around with the Cydia Settings, trying to add some packages, but it ended up becoming unresponsive.

    Time to wait another 30 minutes. Will just leave everything the way it's supposed to be this time.

    ok, after reading through the 12 pages of this thread I havent really found what I'm looking for:

    would installing one of these custom FW's through iTunes jailbreak my phone?
    does it install cydia?

    the reason I ask is because I'm running on nothing but Windows machines so I can't use pwnage tool

    Anybody fancy pulling the latest carrier bundles from the iPhone and PMing them to me? I have a 3GS so can't do it myself.

    Cheers

    Question: Do we HAVE to alt+click on Restore, or can we just use Update? Don't feel like reinstalling everything.

    Winterboard issues were fixed as of this morning with a mobile substrate update by Saurik

    It is recommended to do a restore....if you care about your phone you will restore. It will save you a lot of hassles later on. A lot more than the small task of syncing your information again

    True. I'll give a "Update" a try and see how that goes. Everything is backed up just in case. Just takes a few hours to get everything back on there, then another couple of hours getting everything modded and set up the way I like it.

    Maybe a dumb question, but I want to get a 2G for my Dad and I'm wondering if the jailbreak and unlock will allow MMS by default? I'm almost positive his AT&T account has it on there I was just wondering if it'll work straightaway.
