    So I am going to ask a somewhat stupid question, so please no flaming.

    I am JB on 4.0.1 with the 1.59 baseband. I want to update to 4.1 but not sure on updating my BB. I know Pawnage Tool is coming out Sunday. If I went ahead and updated to 4.1 and took the BB update, would that help with reception issues? I have poor reception where I work and would like anything that would help with it.

    I did see that musclenerd may be working on an unlock (even though I don't need one right now).

    Any one that had an iPhone 4 and did the BB see any improvements in reception?

    I don't think the baseband really plays a part in reception. I could be wrong but I strongly dont believe updating your baseband will make a difference.

    Same, got great AT&T service at home and everywhere around home. At work, where I spend 75% of my time is where the reception sucks. Then again it was the same for T-Mobile so I've accepted that I work in the middle of where nobody wants to be and no carrier cares to improve reception in this spot :/

    I work in the middle of a decent size city (100k+) at a university of over 6k students, so you would think I would have good reception. I get better reception when I am on the highway heading home than I do at work. Not Apples fault. I called AT&T about it but I don't think they ever did anything.

    I wouldn't upgrade the baseband either. Where I work, had same issue. Cell phone repeaters were installed and that fixed the reception issue.

    Well I went ahead and upgraded to 4.1 and Jailbroken with Greenposi0n. I did notice this morning that the modem firmware was still at 1.59. So I guess the BB didn't update.

    If you had TinyUmbrella running, that is what prevented BB from upgrading.

    Well that explains it then cause I had to use Tiny Umbrella to kick it out of recovery mode to get the update to finish. I tried several times to get it to finish but kept getting error 1004 so the last time I tried it I remember reading somewhere that Tiny Umbrella would kick your phone out of recovery mode and that did the trick.

    Yeah, the 1004 error is exactly what you wanted, followed by kick out of recovery as you did. Now you are all set with jailbroken phone and carrier un-lockable BB too !
