^that is NOT where they are. MMI does not host custom firmwares. Use google to find them.

Those are the stock Apple firmware links. You definitely don't want to use those by themselves.

This is on an original bootrom 3GS on 3.1.2.
With this RC2 release, I power cycled my phone approximately 25-30 times and I had one instance of messed up WiFi. I rebooted (WITHOUT resetting network settings) and WiFi came right up. I also soft rebooted around 10 times during those 30 boots and none of them resulted in dead WiFi. Sometimes I left the phone off for 5 seconds, other times 10 minutes. This was a HUGE improvement for me.
RC2 adds support for 3.1.3, you can't argue that. Whether it fixes WiFi is still open to debate as no one really knows what causes it. It should be obvious that the settings files are getting corrupted and that is why the reset network settings fixes it. It should also be obvious that something in blacksn0w is causing CommCenter to become corrupted as it rarely happens without blacksn0w (although it IS known to happen).
Here is a description of the other fix msft.guy did besides fixing the string that it searched for to locate the area of memory to patch.
Among other things, blacksn0w patches this instruction:
MOV R0, R5
This stored the result code in R0 and then returned from the subroutine. R5 (and thus R0) contained 0 if it failed a signature check and 1 if it passed.
Blacksn0w RC1 patches the instruction to:
MOV R1, #1
This was supposed to set it to always return successful, however it stored 1 in the wrong register! R0 was left with whatever unknown value that it had from instructions prior, including a call to _CFRelease. It's value was completely unknown and probably random. My analysis is that this random return code may have been causing problems.
msft.guy patched it to :
MOV R0, #1
which is the proper instruction, given the code in question.

They aren't selling unlocked phones, they didn't understand their source correctly. They are selling phones without contracts...big difference.

That's exactly what I'm saying.

This is still VERY buggy. I installed this version of blacksn0w on TWO 3GS's. On both of them they were at 3.1.2. I restored both of them with custom 3.1.3 from PwnageTool. I installed this version of blacksn0w off of pushfix's repo and it seemed to work fine. When I rebooted both of them, the signal wouldn't come back. To get it to work again I had to uninstall blacksn0w, reboot, and then reinstall blacksn0w. Simply reinstalling blacksn0w wouldn't work.
Oh, and of course both 3GS's are confirmed old iboot so that's not the issue.

It is the most stable of any version of blacksn0w to date. If you aren't on RC2 Final, get it and let me know. For some users who consistently lost WiFi, it is working every time.
This version is probably as good as it's ever going to get.

You updated to the official 3.1.3 instead of a custom firmware using PwnageTool right?

I got this iPhone replacement When my other one froze and all it was kill the battery. This one came with 3.1.2 but updated when I turned it on to this 3.1.3 05.11.01

@hanley...you did the update so you're screwed until a new unlock is released for the 5.12.01 baseband. Never do updates through iTunes!!!
