    My phones been acting wonky, so I restored it and tried to take it back to the Apple store for a replacement.

    Problem is the stupid MMI app that changes the Carrier name stayed there so they knew my phone was jailbroken.

    Now I want to rejailbreak it and fix the carrier name but I can't seem to find any information on Jailbreaking a 3G S with 3.0.1. Purplera1n is not working anymore and information that is out there seems to be buried beneath hundreds of pages of useless information.

    I just want to get rid of the stupid custom carrier name and get a new phone. How do I get rid of it?

    PLEASE HELP! URGENT.

    My phone basically doesn't work. Wifi is dead and there is no 3G or cell signal in my area.

    Also, when redsn0w asks for the ipsw file, give it 3.0
    It won't remove the patch or anything...

    The Video I watched said I download the 3.0.1 so I did (via safari) and that didn't work because safari sucks balls and automatically decompresses files. So now I am doing it via Firefox. But I should be downloading the 3.0 and not the 3.0.1? Where do I find that?

    Ok It's not working. RedSn0w won't recognize the firmware bundle. My phone is essentially dead. I don't know what to do.
