11-04-2009, 10:19 AM #1Iphone 3GS Unlock w/Existing Jailbreak NO WIFI
Have no wifi after installing Blacks0w using Cydia. My iphone was already jailbroken using 3.12 custom ipsw when I installed Blacksn0w to unlock. After unlocking phone shows Wifi, AT&T Service and 3G, BUT AS SOON AS REBOOTING LOSES WIFI.
Realize the WIFI issue is noted on the Blackra1n site by Geohot, however resetting the network does not bring back WIFI.
I HAD TO RESTORE TO MY CUSTOM 3.12 IPSW IN ORDER TO GET BACK WIFI.
AND HAVE SACRIFICED THE UNLOCK I BELIEVE IN THE PROCESS.
I'M ON AT&T SO DON'T NEED THE UNLOCK NOW...WANTED IT FOR FUTURE.
IPHONE: 3GS W/Custom 3.12 IPSW / ECID hashes already on Cydia Server
Appreciate any help to unlock while retaining WIFI. Anticipate future updates will require custom ipsw so didn't want to jailbreak with Blackra1n.

your right on your explanation...
if you dont have cydia..
install cydia and goto manage
then click on packages
find blacksnow and click on it..
in the top right corner hit modify and uninstall blacksnow..
once done with the uninstall of blacksnow hit the home button
once at the home screen hold the power button and slipe to shut off...
once iphone is shut down hold power and turn back on...
then goto settings then wifi and connect to your wireless router..
once connected to wi-fi goto cydia and search and download rock app.(which is sapposed to be a easier cydia installing)
once rock is installed exit cydia and open rock
once in rock click manage and then manage sources..
then click edit then add, and add blackweather then click add source.
once source is installed search and install blacksnow
once blacksnow is installed from rock you shouldnt have a problem with your wifi... i haveent had one all night and i was at 4 diffrent houses that i use wifi at lastnight

Why I ask is, when I say "no wifi", actually I am unable to use my home wifi but every other wifi hotspot works. Strange. But if I reboot, I lose wifi altogether, then I have to reset network settings and reboot aagain to get wifi back ( again, works everywhere except at home).

ive rebooted my phone a couple times and it picks up as it should...

For what it's worth -- I have 3.1.2 3G[S] w/ Blackra1n and blacksn0w ... I occasionally do not pick up Wifi on bootup, but I've fouund I don't need to do the Reset Network Settings thing -- sometimes just rebooting fixes it. Can anyone else report this behavior?
11-06-2009, 06:59 PM #12
Does anyone know if the WiFi issues are caused by Blacksn0w or is it caused by the Blackra1n Jailbreak? If it's from Blackra1n jailbreak then maybe Jailbreaking with PwnageTool or Redsn0w and then Unlocking with Blacksn0w will solve this issue....

It is definetly related to Blacksnow. If I uninstall blacksnow I have no problems with my wifi.

Ok... I have an 8gb 2G and I updated it to 3.1.2 in itunes. Then I JB'd with Blackra1n. My wifi is greyed out and won't come back up. I've tried resetting network setting, rebooting, rejailbreaking, restoring again, resetting ALL settings, etc. Basically tried everything and wifi is still greyed out. So, without wifi I can't install Cydia and can't sn0w to unlock. What am I doing wrong. I've even tried shift+restoring with an activated 3.1.2 Custom Restore ispw, but it freezes halfway through the restore. Anyone have this problem or know what I should do? Thanks.

My wifi problem actually came around after installing bossprefs from cydia. has anybody else had that problem? and does anybody know of a way to fix this so i can use bossprefs?
EDIT: never mind its not just bossprefs. if i install anything off cydia is screws up my wifi.... even if i do the essential updates that cydia always has you do when you first install it.
