Only the most recent iPhones (after week 41 or 42 of 2009) have been released with a new bootloader which requires that the iPhone be connected to a computer with Blackra1n to reboot if the phone happens to die or be reset for any reason. This is known as a "tethered jailbreak".

Since you got your phone when it was first released, it will have the old bootloader which has been cracked by Geohot (the developer of Blackra1n/sn0w).

Well the up grade went smooth but the carrier name is missing, now is there a patch in cydia for this or is their something else I have to do?

Install ultrasn0w. It is the DevTeam's unlocking solution, and it recently added a feature to reenable the carrier logo. It shouldn't hurt anything to unlock with untrasn0w, even if you are on an official carrier.

Did the ultrasn0w and still nothing, maybe its just one of those things, I use the at&t carrier hack and because of the missing carrier It doesn't show. So I'm just alittle disappointed. So I tried MIM and put my own personal carrier name, just doesn't feel the same:(
