Thread: Blacksn0w sucks ...

  1. #1
    Default Blacksn0w sucks ...
    I travel to Europe a lot and I have a European prepaid data SIM in addition to my US ATT SIM. My 3Gs 3.1.2 05.11.07 was unlocked with blacksn0w and I had countless problems with Wifi, No Connection and total freezes on Apple logo. I had to completely re-install 3 times this year alone. After the last re-install I decided to only jb with blackra1n as I'm not going to Europe for a while. For 2 month now my iPhone has been operating flawlessly, so all the problems I had must have been caused by the unlock with blacksn0w. Is redsn0w a better solution for unlock?

    Redsn0w is a jailbreak tool only. Blacksn0w is the only program that unlocks 5.11.07

    I don't see how Blacksn0w would affect your phone's performance... it would be the jailbreak. You should probably get your terms/tools straight before claiming something like that :P I love Blacksn0w.

    I have been through this now a couple of times (i.e. reinstall), and after jb with blackra1n the iphone works fine. The problems start once I unlock with blacksn0w...

    Which process are you getting blacksn0w from? Directly from Blackra1n?

    When you restore are you setting the phone up as new? If youre restoring from back up, thats not always gonna eliminate the problem.

    BlackSnow RC2 fixes some of the problems with BlackSn0w ( but it's not available from BlackRa1n)
    As with all of geohot's work, it will work for the majority of people but he doesn't fix problems, RC2 was not done by him but he's quite happy that others have helped fix it.
    He is, without doubt, a genius but his solutions will never be as well supported as the Dev Team's work.
    For the vast majority of people BlackSn0w works fine, if you have problems then try RC2.

    I always downloaded from blackra1n and thought I had the best and latest - I did not know about RC2. I will certainly give it a try. THANKS!

    blacksn0w rc2 still isnt good enough, because i used that and my tmobile carrier always drop to no service. or a flat bar for signal.

    You did remove BlackSn0w before installing RC2? Have you tried a hard reset?
