    I tried the Ultrasn0w and did not work. Baseband is and was 2.10.04 so that has not changed.

    Tried turning off 3G but not give my bars back!

    Phone is working just fine so I guess not a big deal

    Turn off 3G then reboot your phone. Leave 3G off.
    That should fix it.

    The original GEVEY Ultra unlocks your GSM iPhone 4 and will work for iOS version 4.1, 4.2, 4.2.1, 4.3, 4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.3.3, 4.3.4, 4.3.5, 5.0*,5.0.1*,5.1* and 5.1.1* and must have modem firmware 1.59.00, 2.10.04, 3.10.01, 4.10.01
    So if you updated without preserving your modem firmware it may not be workable according to their site. An OS update to 5.1.1 on an iP4 would be 4.12.01

    *If you are upgrading to iOS 5.0, 5.0.1, 5.1 or 5.1.1 you will need to preserve modem firmware version 4.10.01 when upgrading. Note that we don't offer phone support for preserving previous modem firmware versions on iOS upgrades. This is recommended for expert users only!
    edit; I stand corrected by the info I quoted from Gevey site, Simon is one of, if not the best on this.

    Having 2.10.04 baseband is what is causing it. Having that baseband (or any baseband 3.10 or lower) on 5.X firmware will cause a signal bar display issue where it only shows 1 bar. It is just a cosmetic issue and will not affect your actual signal. Ultrasnow has a fix for this issue in it but installing ultrasnow "may" cause issues with using the gevey.

    I would suggest to just ignore it, your actual signal is fine.

    Same situation here as Simon said with only 1 bar being displayed is a GUI bug, same on my iphone 4 baseband 2.10.04.

    Just wondering if you have tried the WeeTrackData app yet? WeeTrackData has a built in signal strength meter that updates the signal strength in the WeeTrackData GUI for the iPhone in almost real time.

    Just a thought. Wish you the best.

    I have not seen that app but might try it. Like I said... It works fine so really not that huge of a deal. Let me know if you try and the results if you can!
