No bars without yellowsn0w ?
Not sure if this has been discussed, my search didn't return anything relevant...
So i have a 16GB 3G iPhone with AT&T here in US (New York).
Its currently running FW 2.2 with the 02.28 baseband and i've Jailbroken it and installed yellowsn0w. Not that i really need it or anything, since i AM using AT&T, it was more of an academic exercise. To see if i can do it, i guess.
So i did it and everything is working great.
Now, lately i was trying to run Super Monkey Ball but it kept crashing and i thought that maybe i'm running too much stuff and there's not enough memory. So i started unloading stuff that i'm not actively using: vsftpd, syslog writing to /var/log/ and such.
After a while i installed the yellowsn0w toggle for bossprefs and decided to turn it off (temporarily). When i bounced the phone - i got no bars and my phone number stopped showing up in iTunes. Weird, i thought, and enabled yellowsn0w again and bounced the phone. Everything back to normal when it came back up.
So my question is: is this a normal behavior for a Jailbroken phone? I did use some sort of a custom ipsw file (i think) when jailbreaking it. Does this behavior go away when using normal firmware?
Anyone else seen this behavior and can enlighten me?
Thanks in advance,
