I want to ask about how to upgrade the baseband from 05.15.04 to 6.15.00. Because everytime I use redsn0w 0.9.15b3... It wouldn't upgrade it. It would still stay at 05.15.04. I even flashed it so many times in a row and I still can't upgrade it. I even tried downgrading it from the current baseband to 5.13. Still no result.

Reason to upgrade was so that I could downgrade immediately to the 05.13 baseband.

Any alternatives or further instructions?

We could address this problem but then again there is an alternative. Download the latest sn0wbreeze. Create a Custom iPSW using sn0wbreeze and make sure you check the option to install the iPad baseband. It will give you a iPSW and prompt you to enter PWNed DFU mode. Do so and your device should be all black. Open iTunes and it should state that your device is in recovery mode, press ok. Hold shift and press Restore. A dialog window should appear, then go to the place where your Custom iPSW is. Click it and press ok. It should then restore your device and have installed the iPad baseband.

Same problem here. 3g is jailbroken with redsn0w 9.15.b3 but the ipad bb won't take. I'm on a mac, so I can't use sn0wbreeze. I've also tried Pwnagetool 5.1.1 with these instructions: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=13000 But I get the "wrong firmware bundle" message.

I just want to unlock the 3g. Any ideas?

iphone 3g baseband can be updated .....download Redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 then download the 4.2.1 IPSW point redsn0w to the IPSW you just downloaded CLICK next check install cydia and update to ipad baseband and thats it!!!

( if your already jailbroken just select update baseband like I did and deselect the rest )

sorry for the late reply especially reV17's reply.

Here's what I did:

  • update to 4.2.1 via itunes
  • turn off the phone
  • snowbreeze it so it can have ipad baseband
  • install custom firmware (not gonna state instructions how since everyone should know it)
  • then restore via itunes
  • get redsnow ready and use the 3G jailbreak method.
  • downgrade baseband via redsnow
  • ???
  • profit.

Everyon wanting to unlock your iPhone 3GS, here's the method. Restore to iOS 6.1.2 using itunes, then follow this tutorial.

Part 1: Determine Eligibility

  1. Find your serial number (Settings -> General -> About -> Serial number)
  2. Go to this website
  3. Carefully enter your serial number
  4. Click 'Laat de informatie zien' (Show the information)
  5. Look at the lines "Production year:" and "Production week:"
  6. Compare your numbers to the information below

Production year is 2009 or 2010: You have an eligible device. You may proceed to Part 2.

Production year is 2011: Look closely at the production week. If your production week is 33 or lower, you have an eligible device. You may proceed to Part 2. If your production week is 34 or higher, STOP! Do not proceed to part 2, your device is not eligible.

Production year is 2012 or 2013: STOP! Do not proceed to part 2, your device is not eligible.

Note: If your device is not eligible and you still need an unlock, you need to buy a cheap IMEI unlock from a site like this or this.

WARNING: Do not proceed unless your device is eligible! Doing so will brick your device! If you have any question as to the eligibility of your device, join our IRC channel at irc.freenode.net #jailbreakQA and ask if your device is eligible.

Oi meu nome é Wislley Egon Peguei um 3G importado de um cliente que não tava pegando operadoras, só funcionou assim: Baixei e o firmware 4.2.1 original Apple;

criei um custom firmware com o sn0wbreeze v.2.9.5 (Só funcionou com essa versão) que achei no 4 sharing e durante a criação do firmware habilitei a opção de incluir baseband do ipad 06.15.00 logo na opção de na opção de expert > Unlock

Depois de criar essa custom firmware assim, coloquei o iPhone em dfu pwned, fiz uma restauração no iPhone pelo iTunes usando o custom firmware que o sn0wbreek criou, blz, iphone atualizado com a custom, mais ainda na tela preza.

Dai coloquei o iPhone em DFU e usei o Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 e selecionei o firm custom e depois em jailbreak marquei cydia, incluir ipad baseband e segui.

quando o iPhone ligou, já ligou com a basebando 06.15.00. dai no cydia intalei o ultrasn0w e pronto!! Funcionando uhuuuuuu!!! Só escrevi aqui porque apanhei muito pra fazer pegar....
