How to fix some mysterious problems.

I need to unlock my iphone but opening cydia and adding ultrasn0w i discovered that it is not compatible with my baseband. I guess my question is: Is there any compatible program or is this the only one, and if there is no other way then how do I change to a compatible baseband? I read that I should upgrade to 06.15.00 but will I lose anything important in the process?

Unfortunately if u can't get it unlocked officially then taking the (6.15) iPad bb Is the only way to unlock. But u do lose GPS function and there have been reports of faster battery drain.

I believe you can get redsn0w rc18 and feed it a 4.3.3 firmware (since it won't identify 4.3.5) and just flash your baseband. Afterwards ultrasn0w will unlock.

I have the same issue but I have no blobs for 4.3.3. How can I put the iPad baseband on this 3GS (old bootrom)?

Just point redsn0w RC18 to 4.3.3, even though you're on 4.3.5. it should still flash the baseband. And since you have an old bootrom you can use Redsn0w 9.9 to jailbreak untethered.

I Was able to jailbreak my 3gs 4.3.5 by using redsn0w 0.9.8b4 and loading IPSW 4.3.4, but still haven't been able to upgrade baseband 05.16.02 to 06.15.00 so I can unlock with ultrasnow, any ideas?

Use the latest redsn0w version 9.9b8.
