Fix iPhone 4 / 3GS Side Switch Vibrate Issue After iOS 4.3.3 Jailbreak

Hello Jaxov, I just recently jailbroke my iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3.3 using Redsn0w 0.9.6rc14. I got the Cydia, Wi-Fi, 3G, and other features working. Days later, I have noticed that there’s something wrong with my side switch (mute) switches as it vibrates randomly. Now my question is, can I re-jailbreak using other jailbreak tools in order to fix this bug? Also, will I be able to downgrade the baseband of my iPhone in order to unlock it? Thanks in advance.

Hello Devon, Yes, you are right, there was a bug on iOS 4.3.3 untethered jailbreak payload. Stefan Esser (also known as i0n1c) have confirmed it that once you jailbreak your iPhone on iOS 4.3.3 using Sn0wbreeze, Redsn0w, or PwnageTool the side-switch of your iPhone will vibrate randomly when you try to toggle it from silent to ringer or form ringer to silent mode. And to fix this pesky bug, of course, you will need to fix it using the latest version of jailbreak tools. In your case, since it was jailbroken using Redsn0w 0.9.6rc14, you should use Redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 (for Mac Os X and Windows) to fix this issue. You can follow this tutorial on how to use Redsn0w rc16 to jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 but you will need to skip steps number 1, 2, 3, and 4 since you are already o iOS 4.3.3.

On the other hand, for those who rely on Ultrasn0w unlock, you should jailbreak your iPhone using PwnageTool or with Sn0wbreeze 2.7.1 in order to preserve the baseband of your device. You can follow these tutorials on how to use PwnageTool jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 on Mac or Sn0wbreeze 2.7.1 jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 on Windows.
