Poor Signal strength since 2.0.1 (PWNAGE)
I got a brand new 2G from T-Mobil and did the unlock and jailbreak with PWNAGE 2.02 / FW 2.0.1.
Since then the carrier signal is very poor with my prepaid card. I took my old 2G and did the same procedure but have the same poor carrier signal. With poor I mean 0-2 Bars. If I open the settings, the bars grow up to 4/5 bars until I close the settings.
So this poor signal quality is confirmed on both of my 2Gs with different carriers. If I put these SIMs in an SE K800i I have full 5 bars. With 1.1.4 the signal quality was much more better!
Any idea what causes the poor signal after pwn?
Best wishes, Birke
EDIT: Another thing to mention:
If I activate the airplane mode and switch back to normal mode the signal strength is perfect. It has full 5 bars. But after aprox. 1-2 minutes the signal strength decreases to 1-2 bars and will stay with this poor signal.
If I do the game with the airplane mode again, it will have again full 5 bars until the 1-2 minutes are over and it decreases again to 1-2 bars.
This is on both of my 2Gs! This happen with different carriers / SIM-cards. Other phones like my K800i has always full 5 bars. Every time.
I think it is only a software problem, but canīt tell if Apple's FW 2.0.1 or PWNAGE is crap.
Should I try to use the 3.9 Bootloader instead 4.6? Erasing Baseband?
The best version / unlock I ever did with the 2G was ZiPhone 3.0 with 1.1.4 FW. The signal was always perfect and the UI never as slow as now. (Sorry that I have to say that, but it is true.)

some people have the same issue, including myself.
Thank you for your reply GTx08!
I have no problem with my WIFI! My carrier signal is weak.

sorry, misread. Try doing another restore with a new firmware version from pwnage or winpwn.
I did some restores to 2.0.1 already. The problem is still there. On both of my iPhones.
I had the same problem for 2 days. I started receiving calls reliably again after selecting T-Mobile as my carrier. It was set to automatic before. I am a T-Mobile subscriber. When the iPhone did a search it came up with T-Mobile and AT&T.
Now search doesn't return, but my signal strength is good any way and my phone rings when someone calls. The improvement is either due to the carrier selection change or the lifting of the cloud cover created by tropical storm Fay here in the southeast US.
