Install iPad baseband with redsn0w 0.9.15b3. Install ultrasn0w and ultrasn0w fixer to unlock.

Yes, you should install the iPad baseband and then downgrade the baseband to 5.13 (still unlockable but also enables GPS), both with redsn0w. See my detailed answer here, just deselect cydia if you already have it.
