How to jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 (and fix problems). iOS 7.1 is not jailbreakable, except an unsupported tethered iPhone 4 jailbreak.
Restoring or updating will update your device to iOS 7.1 and remove your jailbreak. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 7.1 to 7.0.x.

Okay, as you have a higher baseband...the only way to achieve an unlock is to install the iPad baseband & then install ultrasn0w

the iPad baseband has alot of CONSEQUENCES, read them here (you lose GPS, etc,etc)

In order to install the iPad baseband, you need your 4.3.3 IPSW + redsn0w 0.9.6rc18


  • open redsn0w
  • browse for your 4.3.3 IPSW
  • Select next
  • Select "Install iPad baseband" & "Install Cydia" -- only install cydia if you haven't
  • select next, connect your device...follow redsn0w for DFU Mode
  • once in DFU mode, redsn0w will install the iPad baseband
  • once the process is done, install ultrasn0w using cydia and reboot
  • done, you're unlocked...

But if you have any of those basebands then why would you need jaibreakme

(07 Jul '11, 13:07) venusanann ♦ venusanann's gravatar image

baseband preservation mode -- 99% chance. lol

(07 Jul '11, 13:08) raviraj jailbreak guru ♦ raviraj%20jailbreak%20guru's gravatar image

Baseband preservation mode is pre jailbroken

(07 Jul '11, 13:09) venusanann ♦ venusanann's gravatar image

nope, there's three modes -- Simple, Expert & Baseband preserve only...

(07 Jul '11, 13:10) raviraj jailbreak guru ♦ raviraj%20jailbreak%20guru's gravatar image

That's pointless, so people are gonna use baseband preserve only and then use jailbreakme?

(07 Jul '11, 13:12) venusanann ♦ venusanann's gravatar image

1% chance..

(07 Jul '11, 13:12) raviraj jailbreak guru ♦ raviraj%20jailbreak%20guru's gravatar image

whats the point of that, does baseband preserve only option require restoring to custom ipsw?...the 1% I was referring to was an iphone4

(07 Jul '11, 13:13) venusanann ♦ venusanann's gravatar image

it's just like a custom one. (you need pwned DFU etc)

(07 Jul '11, 13:15) raviraj jailbreak guru ♦ raviraj%20jailbreak%20guru's gravatar image

so why not just use simple/expert mode and job done

(07 Jul '11, 13:16) venusanann ♦ venusanann's gravatar image

I would do that, don't know what's running in OP's mind.

(07 Jul '11, 13:17) raviraj jailbreak guru ♦ raviraj%20jailbreak%20guru's gravatar image

not alot

(07 Jul '11, 13:19) venusanann ♦ venusanann's gravatar image

But it isn't gonna do anything for you, if you've used jailbreakme then your baseband is 99% not unlockable

You have to be on 4.3.x to use jailbreakme, so to get there you've either used baseband preservation firmware, in which case you're already jailbroken, or you're on stock firmware, in which case your baseband isn't unlockable.............the only exception to all this is an iphone 4 updated/restored using TinyUmbrella
