    I care! I keep the dev-team page open every day waiting for these. BTW, BiteSMS and iBlacklist alone are worth the Jailbreak, plus it's fun to know you can SSH into your phone as God intended.

    I do SSH and change my root just for peace of mind but really the only reason I JB anymore is for tethering. No tethering = No Dawgs on my laptop at work.

    Somewhere down the line, one of the jaibreaks for one of the OSes involved grafting on the iPad 6.15 baseband, which, it turned out, messed up the GS's GPS. The baseband can't be downgraded, short of physically replacing the baseband chip.

    Musclenerd said he had plans to work on a downgrade solution, but that was a year ago. :tumble:

    Secure Shell - how we log on to unix - replacement for telnet if you remember that!

    DBD - yes, (free) tethering - couldn't live without it!

    I don't unlock so I usually don't give a shit about this stuff but I do remember that iPad trick. I just looked and there was an unlock for whatever baseband was active in 5.1 on the 3GS. I'm sure the same will happen with 5.1.1 . Just upgrade and unlock??? They usually upgrade the baseband with each ios upgrade, right???

    I'm pretty sure the downgrade of the 3Gs 6.15 baseband will never materialize, in part because it's so tough to crack a baseband downgrade, and in part because of insufficient interest in working on that (the jailbreak gurus feel they have bigger fish to fry).

    I just read something about doing a stock update to 5.0.1 and then re-applying the iPad baseband using redsnow and all location services will work. Like I said, I don't unlock (especially since you can now officially unlock through your carrier) so I really don't know what I'm talking about.

    A lot of people say it works :dontknow:

    You need to deactivate and reactivate after applying the changes or some shit. Good luck.
