    Hi all,

    my problem is about the lost wifi ability on my 2.2 ysn0wed iphone.
    2 days ago while i was trying to update some apps from appstore(havent been using anything really just some useless action) i realised that the update process is stuck at the loading state. i ggled and read that the mobile installation fix for 2.1 prevents from updating. after a quick decision period i removed that fix and retried to update the useless apps. my phone got stuck for 30mins and then i manually rebooted. voila i had a silver apple logo that would not go away. damn i tried many things just not to restore , i replaced M68AP.plist thinking springboard app is messed and some tried different things i read online.

    none worked so i restored (like 10 times). now i have my iphone , yellowsn0wed. but wifi is not working anymore. my home router used to get along with my iphone(and my wife's too) but it s not going well anymore. my wife's phone is good at connecting to wifi but mine is not, so another iphone at 2.2 fw can connect. i tried wep and wpa, and no security. if there s a security enabled, entered password is never accepted. and if no security is enabled, then i get a 169.254.. ip, which is absolutely useless. i restored and jailbroke over and over again using the latest pwnage tool. i wonder what i am missing. can you please suggest any other software or solution ?

    thanks in advance.

    Did you try restoring to official firmware and trying the WiFi?

    Hmm, at this point I can 99% confirm it is not a software problem since you did all those restores. I'd take it in to an Apple Store and have them check it out. BUT make sure you do a clean official restore and do not jailbreak. Have them fix it and then go back home to jailbreak.
