    Default To Virginize?

    I have an original 4gb iPhone that I have unlocked with every update since 1.02 (mostly with ziphone). I am pwned with 2.1 and original BL 3.9. I am having issues with edge/grps working intermittently and incoming calls where the phone doesn't ring and the call goes straight to voicemail.

    My question is this, if I have done the upgrades and pwned/bootneutered the phone, would virginzing and starting over help anything?

    Thanks for any help!

    Thanks for the detailed instructions Alvink83, I don't know if this matters but I did just about every software jailbreak/unlock from 1.02-1.14 and then 2.0-2.1. In Pwnage Tool there is an option to "Enable Baseband Update". If this was selected, is it still necessary to go through these steps to virginize the phone?

    Thanks!

    You have been at 1.1.4 unlocked. That was working, right? So you should go straight ahead to 2.1, no need to virginize.
