How to fix some mysterious problems.

Earlier my phone (iPhone 3G) was frozen at lockscreen so I had to do a restore and update. The phone got updated to version 4.1.2 it also updated my baseband to 05.15.04. I tried to jailbreak it with redsn0w I restored my phone again to the firmware I downloaded for redsn0w and then when it was done I went onto redsn0w selected the same ISPW and then on the options I selected Install Cydia, Battery Percentage and Update to iPad Baseband. It then asked me to put my phone in DFU Mode which I did and then it began to jailbreak like normal. My phone rebooted whilst in the process of jailbreaking and flashed white and then to black (with a back light the phone didnt switch off) It said the jailbreak has been completed on redsn0w but my phone was just stuck at the blank screen.

I then decided to downgrade so I could try and jailbreak with I did that and it worked but then I couldnt get the unlock because I need the iPad baseband on my phone.

Is there any other way to get the iPad baseband because I have tried and tried with redsn0w to get it to work but nothing seems to be happening.

Any help appreciated, thanks.

You can find the iPad IPSW here:

redsn0w should ask you to locate the iPad IPSW before running...if you never downloaded this IPSW you need it to unlock using the iPad BB.

No it doesn't, Redsn0w fetches the required ipad baseband files and you point it at the firmware you have on your iphone, for Pwnage you need to have the ipad 3.2.2 firmware on your comp

Can i use that firmware in snowbreeze? and will it give me the ipad baseband?

I'm taking a guess that Sn0wbreeze doesn't support this process.

My bad about redsn0w fetching the iPad venusanann said your options are redsn0w or pwnage 4.1.3 unlock ed.

Yes it is, just pointing out your options to obtain the (dreaded) ipad baseband.

If you want to jailbreak with, download TinyUmbrella ((Google it)) and save your Devices SHSHs. If you see that you have 4.0.1 then download the firmware ((Google it)) and run a TSS server from TinyUmbrella. ((You'll have to restart iTunes when the TSS start runnning)) Shift click "Restore" and select your downloaded firemare.

Probably went back to 3.1.3 without shsh's

I wasn't able to get 3.1.3 on my 2G after I upgraded -,-

OP has an iphone 3G, but I thought shsh saving was only needed for ios4 for ipt2g as well, or has it got something to do with having to pay for the firmware upgrade at the time of release.

(22 Feb '11, 19:04) venusanann venusanann's gravatar image

Not sure, I only have 4 SHSHs, and their all 4.0 or above

but i need the iPad baseband

(23 Feb '11, 05:15) JCKH1 JCKH1's gravatar image

SHSH's only started when the 3gs came out, so from 4.* Anything prior to that you don't need anything special. As far as I'm aware anyway.

This explains it well, shows when your idevice type need to start saving shsh's -

Can you try it one more time with redsn0w running under Windows XP compatibility and run as administrator. to make it simple, only tick the update with iPad baseband and see how it goes.
