    Default what exactly is tethering?

    i have no idea about this, what exactly is tethering?
    does it mean that i have to run blacksn0w every time i restart my phone?
    and if so, is there a way i can do this offline?
    the reason i ask is that when i lose connection and theres no wireless connection about, i cant download snow..is there any way i can have the snow package permanently installed on the phone?

    cheers

    steve

    Tethering means you have to run BlackRa1n every time you start your phone (not BlackSn0w) and BlackRa1n is a program you have already downloaded to your computer so you don't need a connection.

    A tethered jailbreak relates to the latest 3GS iPhone models made after late september that have an updated bootrom chip.

    This means that everytime the iPhone is restarted it refuses to boot until it is connected to a computer and the boot process is kickstarted via blackra1n.

    This is completely unrelated to your problem.

    There is also internet tethering where the mobile internet (3G/2G data) is shared with your computer so your iPhone acts as a modem.

    Again unrelated to your problem.

    It seems that when your iPhone loses signal, it does not respawn the blacksn0w unlock. This could be partly due to the way blacksn0w is implemented.

    Is this fixable in any way?

    Its strange that the phone loses connection after so long, could it be down to some kind of modem sleep mode or something similar? this used to happen on my laptop.
    The connection lasts anything between 1-3 hours before it dies :-(

    I did find some reference to the same problem occuring for some on t-mobile in USA.

    For ultrasn0w there is a sbsettings toggle to turn it on and off. It is also configured to respawn if the baseband is reloaded (for example turning airport mode on and off)

    I could not find a blacksn0w toggle in a cursory search of cydia. Think you had already tried the airport mode trick and it did not work.

    Have you tried fuzzyband?
    Have you tried running with 3G turned off?

    Hiya, tried with 3g on and off. Fuzzyband was unfortunately not compatible either..

    Ok so how do i get to run blacksnow again?
    i tried through the blackra1n app, but it always gives me an error saying that no connection is available.

    You said earlier that the connection dropped even when you were not using blacksn0w so it could be a hardware problem. Is your iPhone still under warranty?

    Also, blacksn0w is not designed to be reinstalled over and over again. This has been one of the causes for wifi stopping working. You need to restart the iPhone (or use airplane mode) to get the baseband to reinitialise.
