iPhone Dev-Team Addresses 3.1 Jailbreak Problems

Posted September 17, 2009 at 9:46am by iClarified
The iPhone Dev-Team has posted some updates to their release of PwnageTool 3.1 for the iPhone 2G and 3G.

Unlocked users on the 3G will probably notice that the name and/or logo of their carrier is missing, but they still have full bars and a signal. So far this seems to be purely a cosmetic issue and it doesn’t impact your signal or coverage. We hope to have this issue “fixed” when we release the 3GS compatible version of PwnageTool.

As of 3.1, the *.ipcc carrier bundles are signed, and you can no longer force tethering capability simply by crafting your own bundle. The good news is this obstacle can probably be overcome by virtue of the jailbreak. But so far that extra hack is not part of the PwnageTool custom IPSW creation.

You can find instructions on how to use the new PwnageTool to jailbreak your device below...

If you don't want to install a whole prefs app, use MakeItMine. Just search it in Cydia. Mine says "Not AT&T".

With Supreme Preferences 3.0 you can add the name of the carrier.
