Don't trust the 4.1 update floating around on the web...

    After I updated, I found my iPhone 4 lagging around after using the camera app.

    Then I realized that my baseband was still exactly the same as before: 01.59.00

    What is going on with this? I plugged my iPhone in and restored it back to 4.0.2 and it worked without a hitch. I seem to remember previous iPhones not easily restoring to older firmware.

    Same here. Here's the MD5 of the 4.1 update I downloaded for my iPhone 4:

    That's my point! Why didn't my baseband update?

    Guess I'll be waiting for the real thing next week.

    Thats a wiser move.
    Maybe you downloaded a beta and not the 4.1 GM?

    Have you by chance logged SHSH on Sauriks server? If you changed your host file to point to his server then the baseband will not update, allowing you to revert to older firmware. Just change your host file back, update, and the baseband will update.

    I bought an expired bag of potato chips once at the grocery store. Obviously that means all bags of chips at all grocery stores are expired or defective. Uh huh.

    What?
    That would have nothing to do with updating the baseband.
    Where do you get this from?

    I've never jailbroken or unlocked this phone. I have no idea what you're talking about with host files and stuff.

    The file said 8B117. Also, I had the HDR option in my camera app. As far as I know, even the beta updated the baseband and did not have HDR in the camera app

    Did you Option+Update? If so, try Option+Restore next time and you'll probably get rid of the issues you're having.

    *Note: I did Option+Update and have no problems.

    COMPLETELY WRONG.

    Firmware updates baseband on newer phones.

    SHSH allows downgrades (if new baseband is compatible with older firmware).

    You get what you deserve. Sorry - but if you can't wait a week - that's just sad. It's a WEEK.

    Kindly back off. Check the site title. If you're interested in rumors it's fair to expect interest in early access to software releases too. I don't see the OP pissing and moaning that it didn't work; he's just asking a question.

    Then I misunderstood. Was under the impression this preserved the ability to unlock. If the baseband is upgraded then you can't unlock. I guess this only preservers the ability to jailbreak.

    I know very well what SHSH's and Sauriks server do.
    Just never heard that editing your hosts to redirect to cydias server would ever preserve a baseband after a restore or update. Still not sure how or why it does it but I heard a few claim that it does. Still not positive on that claim though.

    Well sorry for me being practical and logical. If you're going to download a file which you "accept" at face value versus waiting for the official release - of course there's a possibility of not getting the actual file.

    This same "logic" some of you use is why Windows people get viruses in the first place. Don't open/download files you don't know are genuine.

    I guess some members of the mac community are too trusting/naive/whatever to think for a second that a file they downloaded might actually not be what it says it is.

    WOW.

    I guess we are in the same boat and you may very well be right. I edited my post to reflect that I may have misunderstood.

    Yeah I've decided to wait, its only a week I can wait that. If it was longer I might have considered it.

    No Problem. Easy to admit fault in my logic when speaking with people who know how to be right, and not be a dick about it. Cheers mate.

    Why would you not wait, in the first place :confused:
    The risk of bricking your phone over something that wasn't officially released is not something that I'd consider.

    What's the over-exaggerated "WOW" for? You've been here for how long? I fail to see how this could surprise you. I also have a hard time understanding why the things other people do with their devices bothers you so much.

    Bricking hasn't been a possibility since the 1.x.x days.

    Okay, I admit I was excited to try out HDR. Jeeze, sue me.
