Ok, so NO downgrading the firmware will not downgrade your baseband. You will need a copy of redsnow rc18 and a copy of your current firmware which you can get here Since you are already jailbroken and you dont want to restore to a newer firmware (i assume) you will just need to run redsnow (as administrator, and if on vista or 7 in compatibility mode....check the FAQ) and once it has succesfully identified your ipsw and you select new or old bootrom, ONLY CHECK INSTALL IPAD BASEBAND, leave everything else unchecked, you need to make sure your computer has a stable internet connection for this. once redsnow finishes its thing, open up cydia and search for ultrasnow and install it....after respring you should be able to pop your sim in and be good to go.

the other option you have is to use snowbreeze and create a custom 4.3.3 ipsw. make sure to choose expert mode as you will need to double click the unlock tab and select ipad baseband and one of the other tabs and select "hacktivate" as you dont have an official sim card.

feel free to ask questions, but there is no need for another post

Thank You Friend,But I am ready to restore to a new firmware(new IOS version>4.1) and jailbreak(again) and Unlock it( so that I can use the latest OS supportive apps). I prefer untethered jailbreak(but need not be necessary) Is their any possibility to go( for a newer version of iOS than 4.1 and then jailbreak it again and then unlock as I've saved shsh blobs??If YES or NO then can you please provide the Links+Complete Procedure from where I can download IPSW firmware file and the Jailbreak tool link and the unlock procedure Link.Please Deleted the new post

If your answer is NO then I'll follow the steps you provided before.

The only option you have is upgrade to the ipad baseband, you CAN upgrade to future firmwares but you need to build custom firmwares with pwnagetool or snowbreeze to do it. I dont think gevey sims work in 3gs, unless there is some kind of adapter, i will let our other members clarify that one EDIT: Also some countries and carriers will officially unlock the phone for you for a fee......where are you and what is your original carrier?

ok so if you want to go up to 4.3.3 use the "snowbreeze method that i have up top....it will be the easiest for you i imagine. Download the 3gs 4.3.3 ipsw from the link ^^^ and go to the snowbreeze link i have up there and download the latest version of snowbreeze. The instructions are pretty simple to follow, just make sure you use expert mode and select install ipad baseband under the unlocks category and select hactivate under the general? category. Snowbreeze will create a custom ipsw for you that will have the ipad baseband installed and will jailbreak your phone as well. You will then have to put your phone into pwn dfu, it should also walk you through that procedure. Now you want to open up itunes, it will see your phone as being in restore mode, good. you want to press and hold the SHIFT key on your computer and select the restore option, this will open up a browse menu, and you need to select the custom ipsw that snowbreeze made for you and press ok. hopefully you come out with no errors and you will just need to install ultrasnow make sure to back up your phone before doing any of this....

sorry it just takes time to type all that haha, you could also just restore your phone to stock 4.3.3 then once you are on the emergency screen use redsnow with your 4.3.3 ipsw (read how to find it in FAQ) make sure that install cydia and install ipad baseband are both selected and go from there.

And to @spockers if i got any of that wrong please edit me or correct....

Thanks again friend. With my baseband version05.14.02 can I still go for 4.3.3?Is it Safer? I know DFU mode.but what is "pwn dfu"? Will this new jailbreak be untethered and does it have the restrictions like Ipdad baseband(in previous meth0d). Any drawbacks/Disadvantages from 4.3.3, so far? Thanks again

(29 Jun '11, 22:03) f0rtun3 f0rtun3's gravatar image

both of the options i have given you are going to upgrade your baseband to 06.15 which will kill your GPS and you will only be able to restore/update with custom firmware, and you can never go back down to 5.14.02, but you cant unlock your phone unless you go to 06.15. PWN DFU is what you need to get your phone into to restore to custom firmware, snowbreeze will go this for you at the end of the building process, redsnow and iReb will also do this for you. No drawbacks to 4.3.3 and both methods are untethered.......and look more complicated when written down than they actually are lol

(29 Jun '11, 22:10) therealcmac therealcmac's gravatar image

If the results are same with both the options, then I'l go with 1st method(redsn0w). " You will need a copy of redsnow rc18 and a copy of your current firmware which you can get here" If i am not wrong i need to download 4.1 firmware file..right?

(29 Jun '11, 22:18) f0rtun3 f0rtun3's gravatar image

well if you are going to move up to 4.3.3 firmware you can just plug into itunes and do a plain restore. this will leave you at the emergency call connect to itunes screen, just close itunes and start up redsnow. you can find your 4.3.3 ipsw that itunes already downloaded here

Where does iTunes store firmware ipsw files it downloads? Depends on your OS, the locations are as follows.

On Windows XP: C:Documents and Settings<user>Application DataApple ComputeriTunesiPhone Software Updates\

On Windows Vista/Windows 7: C:Users<user>AppDataRoamingApple ComputeriTunesiPhone Software Updates I would move the ipsw to the desktop just to make it easier. you are going to want to check both INSTALL CYDIA AND INSTALL IPAD BASEBAND.

(29 Jun '11, 22:29) therealcmac therealcmac's gravatar image

haha, yes that would do it, i would just replace the 4.2.1 with 4.3.3 and use redsnowrc 18 istead of that one.
