    jailbreaking 2 phones and have had problems with both.

    First is a 3g 8gb downgraded to firmware 3.1.2 for 3.1.3 and after using blackrain the signal is lost and carrier setting have gone.

    Second is a 3gs 16gb running firmware 3.1.2 and after blackrain it works but everytime phone turns off it goes to recovery screen.

    Help would be much appreciated

    The 2nd one is easy - it's a tethered jailbreak. You'll need to run Blackra1n every time you reset it.

    I recall seeing a fix in a thread for the no signal issue, but don't recall what it was. I'm sure you can find it by searching.

    Was the 3G unlocked or just jailbroken?

    Do a search for "tethered jailbreak"!

    If this is a new 3G[s], then it can still be jailbroken or unlocked, but you just can't ever let the battery die, or reboot the iPhone when the iPhone is not near a computer.


    The phone is new. Apple updated the hardware on newer models. Ultimately, when you get the "Connect to iTunes" message, DO NOT RESTORE.

    Connect the iPhone to the computer, spend 30 seconds, run Blackra1n RC3/4, RE-jailbreak, and that's it.

    It takes less than a minute.

    ALSO, being that this is a new iPhone 3G[s], that requires a tethered jailbreak, I also suggest getting a battery case.

    A good one is "Case-Mate Fuel" (google it) but it's ugly as sin. It will however, act as a case AND a charger. Or you could go to BestBuy an pick up a "InCase PowerSlider" case.

    That, and a car charger. That way the iPhone never goes off. If you have a laptop, that's ideal/superb.

    Let me know how that goes.
