Download TinyUmbrella and connect your 3G, if it gets recognised, click on it in the left pane then under 'general' tab look down to see what firmware version it has and what baseband version it has, also get the bootloader version which is next to the baseband#

It doesn't do anything on the iphone, it's just a way of getting the required information from the iphone, to hopefully move forward without making an irreversible error......but I feel if it's been restored it will be on 4.2.1 and have the 5.15.xx baseband already.

Get the model# as well and run it through google to try and pinpoint it's origin

How did you restore to 4.1 if you don't mind me asking?.......I don't think you are listening to anything I'm saying.
