Thanks iClarified, iPhone Dev team, and everyone else! I just used this article, to upgrade two iPhone 3G (one on 3.1.2 and the other on 4.0.2) to 4.2.1 using a custom firmware created on a MAC and RedSn0w for Windows 0.9.6b6. Both updated successfully while retaining the 05.13.04 baseband and both have also been unlocked successfully. Thanks again!

The latest version of Redsn0w crashes for me. When I\'m on the ram-disk mode, then the program crashes (on window) and says the program stopped work.

Does redsn0w affect the baseband or should I use Pwnage to update to 4.1??

Hi, I followed this tutorial, and I keep getting a \"iphone could not be restored unkown error 6\" everytime and every time i restart the process and after deleting Itunes library and other custom ipsw files from my comp. I\'m on a Vista laptop, and right now I\'m pretty much out of ideas escept for maybe doing an official Itunes restore...Anybody encounter the same error 6 along the way and if yes, do the experts have any fixes???Thanks

Hello guys, is there a possibility for me to update my 3GS which is on 3.1.3, which i got recently (blackra1ned and relies on unlock), since its not a factory unlocked phone. Since i got it recently there was no ssh saved for anything later than 4.1. Which is the far more reason i need to be more cautious in doing the upgrade a problem free one. So will this work for my situation. Looking forward for an reply and thanks a lot in advance guys....!!!! :-)

I buy a iPhone 3GS and it comes with new baseband!!!@#@# If I use this Jailbreak with Custom Restore it will downgrade the baseband? Can I unlock or need to wait?
