    Lightbulb 2 nearly identical iPhones. Different behaviour.

    I thought I might share my experiences here as it may help the team/other stabilizing their solution. At least we'll find out if somebody else shares my experience.
    (I also reported this here: http://report.yellowsn0w.com/index.php)

    As mentioned in the title I have 2 iPhones that I had sent to myself from the UK after yellowsn0w was announced. (One for the wife and one for me.) Let's call them phone A (white) and B (black).
    Both are locked to O2.uk, are 16GB in size and came with FW 2.1 OTB.
    Phone A was upgraded to 2.2 with a custom ipsw to leave the BB (02.11.07) intact in preparation for New Years Eve.
    Phone B was left as is as to follow the process for Phone A, after that was working.
    When the dev team announced that YS would support (only) BB 02.28.00 I restored Phone A via iTunes with an official 2.2 ipsw and quickpwned it. (pity as I lost all my settings, but the BB had to be upgraded) Installing YS 0.9.4 I discovered that it didn't work.
    Hours of experimentation (including fidlding with the command line) later I decided to give phone B a shot and restored it to 2.2 and quickpwned it. I installed YS 0.9.4 and was happy to find out that it worked with all carrier cards that have (German: t-mobile, e-plus, vodafone, callmobile).
    However none of these cards would work on phone A.
    Refusing to believe that this would be caused by the phone color I decided that it must have something to do with the custom ipsw upgrade.
    So I tried to downgrade the phone to FW 2.1 and 2.0 both with the result of error 1013 regardless wether done in DFU mode or not. (Yes, I know this wouldn't downgrade the BB but I wanted my 'canvas' as clean as possible). Back up to FW 2.2 I had the same result: YS didn't work for me. The legit o2.uk card would be recognized though.
    To put the long story short I played around with this quite a lot (intaller, cydia, CLI, SIM change back and forth) but didn't come to a sensible result.
    Phone A was not working and phone B worked like a charm.
    A couple of minutes ago I installed YS 0.9.5 via Cydia (on installer it reports as 0.9.4) and now it's working for both phones!!

    I assume that a lot of people may have the same issue as I did. It may be that the starting configuration (and not the phone color) is affecting the outcome. Did you guys start from 2.2 with BB 02.11.07 (or earlier) or another configuration? and did it work?
    @Mods: Could we have a poll on this?
    @dev team: I am happy to provide any dump or log you may be interested in. As said CLI doesn't scare me... ;-)

    So far it's ~50-50 but the sample group is quite small.

    Come on guys! I'd like to see at least 50 voters here to see if this has something to do with the initial FW.
