    Anyone know if we can set the 3G, 2.0.2 to boot in verbose mode?

    I like the look of this when it is booting up.

    In the 1.1.x days you could open Terminal and enter nvram boot-args="-v" and then whenever you booted up the iPhone it would be in verbose mode.

    I know you had to have BSD installed for this to work.

    I try entering this command in Terminal now and I get an error saying "Error (-1) setting variable - "boot-args".

    Any suggestions?

    anyone?

    as far as im aware, u cant boot into verbose mode since 1.1.5 and 1.1.4

    seems they changed sum file access.
    i imagine it will be able 2 soon

    theres a program called 'power tool' which has the ability to boot verbose on 3g and 2.0.2

    but its not been enabled yet

    its not a file access thing. apple patched up the ramdisk hack (used in Ziphone, iLiberty, etc) by not letting iBoot (the main bootloader) accept arguments. this includes the "boot-args" argument. the only way to change this would be to patch iBoot to accept arguments which is a bit out of our league.
    hit thanks if thanks are due.

    No. Boot arguments cannot be enabled, and the bootloader has become mostly read-only. You'd have to do a very complicated ramdisk upload to patch it so that root could change arguments.

    yeah I got that too. If you login as root (using 'su' command) it won't give you errors, but it won't work either
