    Default [1.1.3] Edge, YouTube, and Nate's JB

    I softupgraded using Nate True's JB from 1.1.1 to 1.1.3 some time ago, I believe the very first night the JB became available. I had heard that people had problems with YouTube, so I checked my YouTube and it worked fine. I rarely use YouTube, so only tonight I realized that my YouTube works fine over WiFi but it does not work over Edge. When I try to play a video over Edge, I get the message "You need Edge or Wifi to play YouTube videos" or something like that. Note that as many others that used Nate's JB I don't have an Edge icon anymore, but I am pretty sure my Edge is working because I can browse the Web and download e-mails even if I shut down my WiFi.

    I searched the threads, and couldn't find anybody reporting this problem. Does anybody have it? Is there a fix?

    Thanks

    Olivephone,

    thanks a lot. Can you give me more details? What do you mean with re-initialise all your settings? Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings? Or only Reset Network Settings?

    And what is that 'works fine'? Only YouTube over Edge? Also the Edge icon? Anything else?

    Thanks!

    I am amazed that not everyone knows this!

    SINCE 1.1.2 the "E" does not appear if you do not have EDGE coverage in the area - it will still let you use GPRS (so slowed than EDGE) but youtube will only work with EDGE or Wi-Fi.

    Obviously if you are in an EDGE area and you have this problem then something strange is going on but if your area is NOT EDGE and you try and use youtube without wi-fi it will not work - likewise the square will be solid without an E in it.

    I have had some issues with the ZiPhone JB myself and that was fixed but a full settings reset - and it all worked so that is always worth trying.

    Personally I used iJailbreak on my other iPhone which was based on Nate's method and it works great!

    As we all know Nates method messes around with the file system on the iPhone so that iTunes rentals wont work BUT all third party apps will work!

    Hi Spinstorm,
    thanks for your feedback. Even if I do not see the EDGE icon, WeToggle tells me that EDGE is ON and that my iPhone has an EDGE IP address. This is why I am not so sure that I am not running EDGE.
    I am a bit reluctant to a full settings reset. What did you have to do after the full settings reset? And what did it fix?
    Thanks a lot

    I would add that I am not sure ANY services application on the iPhone differentiates between EDGE and GPRS - if EDGE is on it simply means EITHER will work depending on the service and you will still have an IP address if your not connected with EDGE but with GPRS... so unless your 100% certain your in an EDGE area it is possible that you simply thought you had it before when you didn't!

    As for what a reset does it deletes your favourites list and your wi-fi settings and your screen lock time and I imagine resets your ringtones.

    BUT they are all little things that you can change back so its not a big deal and it potentially fixes wierd problems like yours.

    I could not turn my speakerphone on or listen to visual voicemail messages - simply nothing happened when I tried to listen and the speakerphone "button" would flash and not work.

    I restarted the iPhone and it didn't help so I held down power and sleep until the Apple logo appeared (then letgo) to do a reset (or whatever you want to call it) and that did nothing either so my last possible option was a settings reset and that fixed the problem.

    I would also add that when I first jailbreaked my 1.1.3 OTB 16GB iPhone it would not play films/tv shows/videos in the ipod function or youtube and it was nothing to do with the activation of the phone - it simply didnt work - a full settings reset fixed that as well so it is definately the way to go.

    I suppose that if you are not on an iPhone network then you would have to re-enter your EDGE settings but other than that it should be fine! and will hopefully fix the issue!

    Well, you made a convincing case, so I did a full reset (which turns out is not that painful as I thought). At any rate, no dice. I still get the YouTube message and I don't see the EDGE icon. Could it be I am not in an EDGE area? Possible, but not likely. Since I did the Nate's JB I have never seen the EDGE icon. Is it possible that in the whole Westside Los Angeles there is not even one EDGE area? I am more inclined to think that Nate's JB either screwed up something in my machine that not even a full reset can fix, or that the bug that makes the EDGE icon invisible also fools YouTube into thinking there is no EDGE service.

    Any additional suggestion will be most welcome.

    Thanks anyway.
