Hi guys!

Sorry to bother everyone. I have 5.1.1 installed with baseband 1.59.00 preserved from using redsnow.

To jailbreak I need to use absinthe 2.0.2 and it will maintain my baseband? then I just use ultrasnow to unlock it?

I would like some clarification since I travel a lot and want to be able to use other sim cards.

Thanks for the help!

Absinthe doesn't do anything to your BB.

You can jailbreak it.

Only thing is that Ultrasn0w isn't updated yet so you might get stuck on the 1 bar cosmetic issue.

Thanks for the clarification TriJetHero!

the 1 bar, is that only cosmetic? ie, I still have my normal speeds?

Isn't the 1 bar cosmetic issue a byproduct of the NO_BB iPSW, and not of unlocking the device. OP should already have this issue if he's installed the NO_BB iPSW using RedSn0w, right?

Everything is working well for me. I just jb this evening and did the unlock. The only thing is I see no bars now rather than just the one. I can still make calls so I'm assuming its a cosmetic thing?

Mine Themeit app still isn't working. I've reinstalled numerous times and nothing. Is there anything I can do to fix it or just wait? Are you on 5.1.1 firmware using absinthe 2.0.2?

Icons

Thanks for the help with themeit app. Mine still isnt working and I also used a mac to jailbreak mine. I did read where they have issues with it on 5.1.1. I guess I will have to wait for it to be fixed.

But on another note. I did say I was new to this, so I was wondering where to go to get better icons from. I didnt know there was this much to know and do with jailbreaking a phone. Im just getting started and having a blast. I will take any and all info anyone wants to give me. Thanks again

You can download the actual icons and install them onto your phone if you know where the files should go. You can use OpenSSH or iFunbox to do this.

The other option is to use Winterboard and download themes from Cydia. Even if you go this route, you can still change plenty using iFile or the method above, so don't think that you have to stick with just the theme as downloaded - you can even customize that!
