How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi Folks,

I've successfully JB'd my 3GS on iOS 5.0.1 using redsn0w 0.9.10b1. I've installed the iPad BB and ultrasn0w 1.2.5.

Every so often my cell and wifi networks will turn off and then back on again (the status bar says "searching..."), and this sometimes happens many times in a row before stabilizing for a while.

Anyone else experiencing this strangeness?

So, folks, is there any way to fix this issue so that 3GS owners can use location services? thanks!

I have had my 3GS on 6.15 bb for almost 2 years. Location services work when your connected to wifi, and your cell data can triangulate your location using cell towers, but that is as good as it gets. No fix yet, been waiting patiently for a while.

thanks david. I had a 3G whose GPS was rendered inoperable due to the 6.15 update, but I suppose this is a different problem.

Because you have location services on. Location services + 6.15.00 = baseband crashes (searching)

My impression was that this was only a problem with new bootrom 3GS's. My 3GS is from week 26, so it's an older bootrom. Please correct me if I'm off.

i fix this by long time ago, by restore to stock firmware, jailbreak + install ipad bb, unlock using ultrasn0w.

What do you mean by "restore to stock firmware"? Anyway, you're just talking about re-installing 06.15.00. I've already done that, and it didn't help.
