iOS 4.3.1 + bb prevention + new TinyUmbrella + you


First off I want to congratulate @i0n1c on his magic. Great job bud!

One question I've been getting quite often is "Will TinyUmbrella prevent iPhone 4 baseband updates for X version?" The simple answer to this question is: Yes. TinyUmbrella will, as far as I can tell, ALWAYS prevent iPhone baseband updates for the iPhone 4 GSM. This is due to a flaw in the way Apple tried preventing unauthorized baseband installs. They introduced a baseband shsh but unwittingly (or on purpose I don't know for sure) put into place a means for us to restore a firmware and prevent the bb update by merely ignoring the bb shsh request.

Now, that said, iOS 4.3.1 seems to have some kind of incompatibilities (the only notable one was mentioned by @musclenerd warning ultrasn0w unlockers to wait until a fix is pushed for 4.3.1 problems). This is likely why those of you that updated to 4.3.1 using TinyUmbrella are seeing oddities ie. One signal bar wherever you go. Hopefully, the incompatibility can be patched in the iOS layer allowing those of us that do not rely on unlocks to keep the old baseband as we all usually prefer :)
