I am trying to restore my iphone 3gs to 6.1.2 so I can jailbreak and upgrade (I am currently on 5.1.1). When using redsn0w to do the restore, I get "waiting for device" for a long time and then an error message that says "Couldn't restore: Unexpected error (2831)". When researching this, I have discovered the fix is to allow redsn0w to upgrade my baseband during the restore. I am currently on baseband 06.15.00. What would be the disadvantages to allowing redsn0w to do this baseband upgrade?
