The iPhone Dev-Team plans to release an improved iPhone 3GS baseband downgrade today, reports MuscleNerd.

The original release of RedSn0w to downgrade iPhone 3GS devices on the 06.15 baseband was unsuccessful for some devices.

After day of debugging why reverted 3GS had no service, found it was blocked for unrelated reason! OTOH I figured out how to change IMEI

Other than that testing hiccup, the revised payload seems fine...will release improved downgrade later today. Happy 4th of July!


You can find instructions on how to perform the baseband downgrade here: Windows, Mac.

Would I be able to restore the phone to an Apple firmware after downgrading the baseband?

can someone explain why people need this? i've bought a bunch of second hand 3GS's (to use as unlocked travel phones), and since they are over 2 years beyond the initial contract they can all be unlocked at the cell provider. phones that are out of contract should always be able to be unlocked since your initial tie to that company is over. please someone motivate why this is neccessary. thx.

Those who have flashed iPad Baseband, doesn't have GPS capability.. If you are unlocked, to get back GPS. Also not all iPhones are unlocked.
