    Default [1.1.4] No Wi-Fi, possibly greyed.

    Hi,

    I have consulted several threads on how to use Swifi and Bootneuter. However, there are things that are not clear for me and I don't want to mess up my iPhone.

    My iPhone has the following description:
    Firmware 1.1.4
    jailbroken, activated and unlocked w/ iLiberty+
    IMEI 01 147200 xxxxxxx
    Modem Firmware 04.04.05_G
    Wi-Fi: Not connected, "unable to join the Network" or it states it can't connect to the server.

    I can't download any application from the installer, including boot neuter because the Wi-Fi connection is not working. During my search in the forum, I was recommended to download a utility through iLiberty+ that reflashes EDGE/Wi-Fi/ and Bluetooth. I have used it twice after restoring with Firmwares 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 but I haven't recovered the Wi-Fi connection.

    Another recommendation was to download a payload to be used with iLiberty+ as well. This payload contains mainly a BSD subsystem, Bootneuter, Swifi, and Term-vt100. To be honest I am a bit hesitant to use this payload because the tutorials I found were a bit fuzzy, but the forewarning if done incorrectly was utterly clear: irreversible damage.

    I would deeply appreciate, if you could please tell me how to go about installying and applying that payload, and if possible how to get back my Wi-Fi connection.

    Thank you very much in advance,

    There is no such thing as a "possibly greyed". It's either greyed or not greyed.

    Sounds like your wifi is OK because you can turn on/off wifi and it can search for signal. Can you ?

    You need to check your wifi setup.
    can your iphone detect the wifi signal, can it see the SSID (wifi network name), can you join the network ?

    If the wifi network is encrypted, you need to provide the key and select the proper encryption method such as WEP, WPA, WPA2 and such ...

    Don't try to fix something that is not broken.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your answer : ) !!!

    I am glad to know that perhaps technically speaking the telephone may not be doing that bad.

    I go ahead to try to answer the questions that you ask:

    1. You need to check your wifi setup. can your iphone detect the wifi signal ??
    No, it doesn't detect "the little rainbow" or "the inverted pie" that is the sign of Wi-Fi.

    2. Can it see the SSID (wifi network name), can you join the network ?
    The network's name is not always detected by the iPhone in the settings section. When detected, it recognizes the network's name, and when one chooses to join
    the Network the iPhone is unable to join it.

    3. If the wifi network is encrypted, you need to provide the key and select the proper encryption method such as WEP, WPA, WPA2 and such ...
    I thought it was a problem with the encyption method, but as of yesterday, a password is no longer needed to access internet at my place. Even without the password the iPhone can't join the network, nor recognize the Wi-Fi little sign.

    This very morning, just "as a Miracle", the iPhone displayed for a sec "the little rainbow" after I chose the Network. The second after, the iPhone turned unstable and turned itself off. It looked for the iPhone, that doing that task, was something "very strenous" to do. As soon as it turned itself off, I tried to turn it back on. As soon as it rebooted and the wallpaper image appeared, it froze. I even wonder if 1.1.4 is the right firmware for this iPhone. Perhaps if I were to use it with the original firmware this iPhone came with, it would be more stable in this regard. However, for me it is hard to know the original firmware it came with because when my uncle gave the iPhone to me a month ago, (he got a 3G), it was already with the 1.1.4 firmware version. With the original firmware version, I would try iLibertyX instead of iLiberty+, (just a thought).

    Thank you once again for your help and support,

    hi all, this is my first post....:-)

    I to have unlocked my Iphone 8G with iLiberty+ and I also find it impossible to connect to my Local wifi.

    The iphone finds my wanadoo(orange) wifi connection and asks for a password.
    I key in the WEP number for it but it dooes not recognise it.
    I have tried to change the password setting on the iphone to WEP but there is no option for it in the wanadoo wifi.

    I can connect to unsecure wifi networks, but there are not many of them around

    many thanks

    John

    You have to key in the password with the right encryption method.
    If WEP does not work, then try WPA or WPA2, and etc ...
    The wifi on your phone is OK.

    @igmolinav,
    Based on what you answered, I think you can try swifi payload.

    - You use iLiberty, download the payload you need to local computer first. They are bsd, bootneuter, swifi, term vt-100.

    connect phone to computer. in iLiberty, you select jailbreak, bsd, and bootneuter, vt-100. (don't select swifi yet)

    - when done, turn auto-lock to never. run bootneuter and see what is detected on your phone.
    Report back.

    Don't hit flash, don't do anything yet.

    hi dtube, thank you for your swift reply.

    when i go to wi-fi networks, on the CHOOSE A NETWORK, my options are WANADOO-3ECE (my home network) which is locked but a signal is being recieved.
    When i touch the word WANADOO-3ECE, I am prompted with a password request. There is no option to change to WPA, WPA2 or WEP.

    When I touch the padlock/blue arrow I get IP adress options (DHCP/BootP/Static) which are all empty.

    If I ignore the WANADOO and touch OTHER NETWORKS, I am prompted for Network Name and an option of WEP/WPA/WPA2 security options. I have tried connecting this way but it still won't connect.

    I did once connect to an unsecure network easily.

    I have keyed in my WEP so many times that sadly I have memorised it :-(

    I know that it is something really simple (hopefully) but its driving me nuts because i can't use the installers.

    Many thanks and hope this makes sense,

    John

    key in your password/passphrase.
    hit the back button (upper left), don't hit join yet.
    now you should see the selection choice for encryption method.
    select the proper one and hit join

    my bad ...
    ignore what i said before.
    - under choose a network
    - click other
    - enter in the network name "SSID" as you see it when the phone detected it.
    - tab on security.
    - select the encryption
    - click back
    - join now
