    Default Pwnage updates baseband, wifi weak range/signal on 2.0+,

    I have an original iphone 1.02 that has been updated to all recent stable firmwares since I purchased it. I have had no problems whatsoever with the device, but I noticed that once updating to firmware 2.0, my wifi signal is cut in half. I have never been sure if it was the phone or the firmware that was causing the issue, but today I decided to downgrade back to 1.1.4 to see if the wifi increased. Surprisingly, the wifi is now as strong as ever, and I've concluded that it's either a 2.0+ issue, or a baseband issue after I re-installed 2.1 and was having the same problems immediately upon re-flashing. Can I update to 2.1 through pwnage and keep my old baseband intact to test? Pwnage has the option, but even though I leave it unchecked, bootneuter still performs the update. Can kiphone work while on firm 2.1?

    Thanks,

    kk

    I used kiphone to downgrade from 2.1 to 1.1.4 as well, but I'm specifically asking if I can use kiphone from 2.1 firmware and stay on 2.1 firmware, but use the baseband from 1.1.4. I'm not sure if that's what you meant in your reply, but I'm just clarifying. Will it mess anything up? Will 2.1 still work with the old baseband? I appreciate your reply. Thanks.

    Did you virginize your iPhone's baseband/modem firmware before updating to firmware 2.1? Please check here for your references.

    Hi alvink83,

    I just took a look at your tutorial and I've never used "The Virginizer" before. Looks interesting. Can this run on 1.1.4, or do I need to downgrade further? Any baseband? Thanks very much for the link, I hope it works.

    Regards,

    kk

    The virginizer only can be run on firmware 1.0.2 or 1.1.1. All you need to do is downgrade your iPhone and run the virginizer. Then, update to firmware 2.1 again. It's recommended to run on firmware 1.0.2.


    Cheers~~

    Happen to have a quick tutorial on downgrading 1.1.4 to 1.0.2? ;P. I'm finding a lot of 1.1.4 to 1.1.1 or 1.1.3 to 1.0.2, but nothing for my specific firm. I would assume that I just need to DFU and then restore to 1.0.2, but I know when I've downgraded from other firms, there would be an error since the baseband is not what it's expecting. Any help?

    Thanks again.

    Actually you can refer to the link I posted above. You need to use iTunes 7.5 or lower to restore iPhone to 1.0.2.

    Cheers~~

    Well... after virginizing etc. I still have the same issues. Maybe it's not the way it's hacked after all, and apple broke wifi in their latest baseband or firm 2.0+. If it's working properly in 1.1.4 then the device is obviously capable of achieving the same results in newer firmware. I did notice though that 1.1.4 drained the battery quite a bit more than 2.0+. Maybe decreased wifi range is how apple has increased the battery life?

    If that is the case, you should go back to firmware 1.1.4. You will lost the advantages of firmware 2.x.
