    Thumbs up How I fixed WiFi erratic, Cydia and SSH after Pwnage 3.1.2 on my iPhone 2G
    Hi Folks.
    I can´t guarantee is works for everyone, but here were my symptoms after I upgraded to FW 3.1.2 on my iPhone 2G using WinPwn(QuickPwn):

    - Cydia didn´t worked - Opens windows, and closed suddenly. Same thing with Cycorder and Terminal (SSH for iPhone)
    - Icy works, but with late packages - very old versions.
    - Erractic Wifi (sometimes worked for 5 minutes, sometimes for 5 seconds, sometimes doesn´t even shown SSIDs Networks)
    - SSH trials over Wifi (while it was working), using puTTY Terminal provided a error with dyld, on _login package and freezed (dropped connection). Connections using WinSCP however, worked fine, and I was able to browse my iPhone.

    I searched for several forums to compile what I here propose - and worked fine fine for me:


    1) Open Icy
    2) Go to sources and remove as a repository
    3) Close Icy and reboot your iPhone (Power Off cycle, or Reboot using package)
    4) Add as a repo again.

    This process refreshed the cache and versions, solving the old package availability. Prior to that, my OpenSSH package was on version 0.4xxx, which caused the dyld _login error, trying to access over puTTY due to lack of library.

    5)Enter on Icy 1.4xxx and find the OpenSSH package on version 0.5xxx (updated). Install and exit Icy.


    After OpenSSH update to 0.5xx, you must connect using Wifi. This was a tricky task, due to Wifi erractic behavior. I´ve tried several recipes, looking for a consistent workaround. What worked the most was 1) Reset Network Settings, 2) Enter Airplane Mode and 3) while in Airplane mode, activate only Wifi. This lead to a status where you have no phone service, which in the end, is good as we´re trying to fix over terminal and don´twant anyone bothering us with a call
    Whenever in Wifi config settings screen, you can see your Wifi networks, reconfigure your SSID Password to your router, and login immediately using puTTY using your iPhone´s IP over SFTP.
    As usual, login as ´root´ and password ´alpine´ standard procedure. It took me more than 5 times to get access, probably due to erractic Wifi behavior, but I finally got access to the terminal prompt.

    Then follow these steps to reinstall cydia and update library
    1) Remove outdated Cydia application by typing: 'apt-get remove cydia' and confirmation phrase.
    2) Refresh entire library by typing ´apt-get update´ and see your library refreshing
    3) Reinstall Cydia by typing ´apt-get install cydia´ It will reinstall and add the apt7 library, which I believe was key to move forward.


    Here were when my Wifi became stable. Cydia identified 36 packages to update !!! Hopefully some of them fixed the Wifi preferences and priorities - I really don´t know exactly what happened, but as you´re stuck as I was, there´s nothing really to lose if you got till here. \o/

    Hope it helps !
