Few questions: 1- does it works with a 3GS runnig the iPad modem firmware (06.15.00)? 2-if so, does it keep this firmware or change it? 3-does this fix the broken GPS on the 3GS running the iPad firmware? 4-this is a tethered jailbreak, right? Thanks a lot!

It keeps the base band currently installed, and yes it is compatible.

Lucky you...i have a problem, i did everything just like you said it, but when it starts to install the new firmware on my iphone 3gs, the bar on the itunes and on the iphone starts to fill, going through several phases, but then, in the end, it stops, and doesn,t move anymore, almost as if it was crashed, and then i have to unplug everything and reboot the device... any help on this subject??

I have a problem. My 3gs was unlocked, jailbroken to 4.2.1 baseband 6.15.0. When I got to the end of this 5.0.1 jailbreak I got stuck in recovery mode after custom restore with a message referring to error 1600. Any ideas? Looks like a mess to me

make sure in tiny umbrella the "set hosts to cydia on exit" is unchecked.

Solved my problem by switching to latest releases of redsnow mac, 0.9.9b9d (there are newer ones than that now I think) That got me back into jailbroken phone, once back with Cydia I then had to unlock with ultrasnow, which gave me back access to my sim.

I tried the redsnow 0.9.9b2d but i made my custom ipsw and then when i try to go to itunes and do the update with the custom firware NO_BB it just freezes almost in the end of the process and it fails to install....i already tried the same with the latest versions of redsnow and pwnage tool and it happens always the same. I have a 3GS with 4.2.1 unlocked with ultrasnow

It is running really slow so i want to restore, jailbreak using greenp0ison, and unlock with redsnow, will this work for my baseband and jailbreak. please someone leave a reply or inbox me I really need to know. I ca get people to do this but i dont trust them nor do i want to pay for it when i could do it myself.
