On your phone, go to Settings>General>About>Modem software and tell us what it says.

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
