Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

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?
