I tried to download baseband from 6.15.0 (old BB) as the signal was dropping alot. I did redsn0w -> jailbreak -> downgrade from ipad baseband. I got an error "Error! Please reboot the device into normal operating mode then perform a clean "Slide to power off", then try redsn0w again"

You need to slect ipsw. If you are running iOS6, select 6.0 ipsw, not 6.0.1 nor 6.1 nor 6.12.

Hi amar611, can you please tell me how you got your phone working again. I am having the same issue as you. What do you mean restored to 6.1.2, selected 6.0 ipsw?

Yes, download 6.1.2 open redsn0w -> extras -> even more -> restore -> select 6.1.2 ipsw. Put the device in dfu mode. Once the restore is completed. Put your device in dfu mode again. open redsn0w -> extras -> select ipsw -> select 6.0 ipsw -> recovery fix.

start your device with an att sim.

Once your device is ready open evasi0n -> JB Open cydia -> install ultrasn0w

reboot your device with your sim card

Thanks Amar. At the end of this process, what was your baseband? Hopefully, I don't need to install ultrasn0w as I have bought sim unlock on ebay.

Hi Amar, I tried earlier but redsn0w does not accept 6.1.2, only 6.0, is there an update in redsn0w?

(06 Mar '13, 10:32) sandkuma002 sandkuma002's gravatar image

use the latest redsn0w. it worked for me. My redsn0w version is 0.9.15b3

I remember having this issue when the downgrading baseband was first available. If I remember it correctly, even though the 3gs was already on iPad baseband, I had to upgrade to iPad baseband. Then, I performed the downgrade immediately afterward. Good luck
