    I need to know where I can DL the OS X .deb file for the fix because my wifi(greyed-out) has been dead for almost a month! I've installed the blacksn0w.deb with iPhoneExplorer rather easily.If anyone with the same dead wifi unrelated to the recent blackra1n JB just post a request here and I'll explain the steps I took to JB and unlock.

    hello guys, yesterday i updated to 3.12 and jailbreak it with blackra1n and then used sn0w. i dindt use aptbackup so all my apps downloaded from installous and cydia are now gone, well they still on my itunes but not on my iphone. my second problem is that the iphone screen is darker then before, how do i fix that? thanks!

  • Dusty

    Maybe there might be an RC4 release from GeoHot to fix all these problems, that is if he decides to… So far from comments with these fixes, everything seems to work good!

  • Sukisszoze

    Get and install “App Sync” from cydia and iTunes should reinstall those apps for you

    Thank to point it out. I was wondering why I could not lookup an adress in Maps, using facebook app,… while talking on phone.
    And my GoogleSynced just stopped push for 5 days now.
    Just installed Push Fix. Hope this can fix Gmail push.

    Anyone noticed a ridiculous slow performance using edge network to surf or data access after jailbreaking to 3.1.2. Before my jailbreaking, it was alot faster, but now seems very very slow.

  • djelimon

    Thanks did not notice anything but did the fixes and everything works

  • markkle

    I did this fix but still my YouTube reports that it “Cannot connect to YouTube” when that app loads. Can anyone guide me in the right direction to fix this. THX

  • deadbydawn87

    Go to settings and then notifications, note all apps that use push. Uninstall said apps, reinstall pushfix, restart phone. Worked for me.

  • Edge

    Yikes! If possible, I highly recommend just using the official SIM of the phone (activated or not) while doing the upgrade. This will avoid any issues, and enable actually push notifications. Please note that the Push Fix above will not enable notifications, and you'll likely receive other people's notifications.

    Reset Network Settings does not fix my WiFi Problem. With BlackRa1n my WiFi works for a day or two and then it just does not find any networks anymore. Restore OS, it works right away and keeps working. I use RC3.

  • sodasado

    i cannot fin pushfix in cydia source now. how to do other??

  • Harry Z.

    Usually youtube don't work because your date is wrong. Try changing your date.

  • lixpas

    I found out that the GPS problem was caused only by balckra1n jailbreak. I restored my iPhone and GPS was working fine, but right after the jailbreak it wasn't working anymore.

    Only thing that helped me with non-working GPS was complete restore with PwnageTool.

    Here is link to Windows jailbreak: http://www.redmondpie.com/jailbreak-and-unlock-

    And MacOS jailbreak: http://www.redmondpie.com/jailbreak-iphone-3.1….

    For whatever reason Push Fix is no longer available at both Rock and Cydia. It is still available at a different source under sinfuliphone.com

  • Tim

    I just followed all the steps in the “fix my everything”. I got to step 8 and i cannot find step 8 “pushfix in search” please help me out

    Thanks

  • Al

    Instead of searching at the source of: http://cydia.iphoneil.net , you need to add the source: http://www.sinfuliphome.net, that site still have the push fix copy.

    Be aware that by applying the aforementioned Wifi fix you can get your iphone stuck in the boot loop, as documented here:

    http://modmyi.com/forums/general/701356-blackra

    I did and it was a pain to get things working again. I suspect that the main reason for getting stuck in the boot loop was having a password on the phone. I was able to restore the phone using SHSH from Cydia and 3.1.2 firmware using a similar approach to this guide:

    http://digiex.net/computing-section/guides-tuto

    Afterwards I removed the password, jailbroke and unlocked the iphone, applied the wifi fix and all is well. This is all on iPhone 3GS with 3.1.2.

    So here is my advice and a list to follow. Make sure that prior to hitting “Reset all network settings” you:

    1. Do a fresh sync with iTunes
    2. Backup your SHSH to cydia, can't stress how important this is.
    3. REMOVE PASSWORD LOCK ON YOUR IPHONE -> VERY IMPORTANT!!!

    Good luck!
