    Unhappy [1.1.2 OTB] [Problem Fixed] BL4.6 vs BL3.9 WiFi Signal difference?

    Hello everyone,

    I had the chance to test something, I own a 1.1.2OTB iPhone. I did H/W downgrade to 3.9 and it went pretty good, everything is working perfectly. Today, a friend of mine gave his iPhone to me. And that iPhone is 1.1.2OTB (just jailbroken with bl 4.6).

    I come to realise that, the wifi on h/w unlocked iPhone is lower than the jailbreaked BL4.6 iPhone. I moved from room to room in my house, and the result is always the same.

    I was wondering if this is normal? Can there be a difference about WiFi signal between BL4.6 and BL3.9...

    I belive I'd be finding about it myself after I preform H/W unlock on my friends iPhone, but it made me really curious.

    Thank you.

    (FIXED, PROBLEM CAUSED BECAUSE OF THE LOOSE MIDDLE BOLT!)

    Same here.
    With BL3.9 I'm getting 1 bar less of wifi signal.

    As BL has nothing to do with radios, and the rest it's the same as before downgrading... only thing I can think of (although I'm pretty sure I didn't) if is I damaged anything during HW downgrade.
    Maybe before the HW operations the shields were better? I don't know.

    BTW another thing I noticed is that the voltage of the batyery has increased from 4.140 v to 4.211 v.


    The rest is working as usual.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Chances are you damaged your antenna or your shields a little bit when opening the phone. That's what's making the signal a little lower.

    Apple
    sucks.
    Microsoft rules.


    TurboSIM-like methods? No way.

    - Unlocked Week 47 1.1.3 iPhone, baseband 04.04.05_G.
    - Bought in Minneapolis, MN;
    - Currently on TIM carrier.

    I'm not here to find help. I'm here to help others and give back what I've learned from Hackint0sh.

    FIXED: a simple mistake, I did not screw the middle middle bolt that connect to the antenna. Now works like a charm
