Hello! I'm trying to flash iPad baseband so I can unlock my phone. Problem is, every time I try it, I get error "iPad baseband failed" on XP, or redsn0w just crashes on win 7. I managed to jailbreak phone without selecting iPad baseband option, but it's not really useful as I can't use my SIM card. I also tried disabling antivirus/firewall. I have iPhone 3G What should I do?

What antivirus did you disable? Also, you should be using redsn0w 0.9.14b2 for an iPhone 3G.

9.14b2 did the trick! Thanks guys, you rock! While I'm at it, for some reason I can't connect to router. I get Unable to join to network. I even tried disabling security. What am I missing?

Unplug the power to the router for 30 seconds. Sometimes they just need a reset.

@spockers I completely forgot MAC filtering is on /facepalm Thanks anyway!

Use redsn0w 9.14b2. After successful install iPad baseband, do downgrade baseband on another run.

Are you using the latest version of redsn0w? Since it's a 3G you have another option, Sn0wbreeze! Download it and the iPhone 3G 4.2.1 iPSW. Create an iPSW with sn0wbreeze and make sure you select install the iPad Baseband and restore with it using iTunes (After placing it in DFU Mode).
