    Default Thought Id share this discovery on signal strength
    Just done a re-install of 3.1.2 on my wifes 3G. shes on Orange so Ive gotta unlock it.

    attempt 1: created custom FW with Pwnage (used this on her old 2G for many installs without issues)

    installed the FW and restored everything ok, noticed that the signal strength was 1 bar at best sometimes 2 bars, but mainly NO SERVICE.
    Strange as she had full signal befor the reinstall.

    attempt 2: download official 3.1.2 FW and install (all fine)

    download Blackra1n RC3, run this, jailbreak successful, run blacksnow - successful.
    Signal strength back to full

    Im not sure why Pwnage would affect the signal strength, could be something to do with loosing the carrier logo, I dont know.
    but if anyone has poor signal on a PWNED iPhone i would suggest trying Blackra1n and see if it makes a difference

    Blackra1n at the moment is actually making my signal worse. It didn't for my last iPhone but for this current one it is.
