Default Any ideas on how to downgrade baseband from 05.14.02

I've got an iphone 3G that the previous owner decided to "accidentally" update to 4.1, even though I explicitly told her not to...

anyways, I have baseband 05.14.02 and I need to downgrade by whatever means necessary. Any ideas?



P.S I can't wait until the 4.2 iOS is released so that the dev team can give us the unlock!

Cant be done, basebands dont go backwards, even if you move back to 4.02 or some such.

Just going to have to wait a couple more weeks for the 4.2 jailbreak and carrier unlock sorry :(

That's what I was afraid of...

I already tried loading 3.1.3 and 4.0 to no avail.

Alright whatever... Just gonna be without a phone for a few days.

I'm pretty sure you can unbork it if you tried hard enough. Its not like you shorted the board or something.

A quick update: 3G and 3GS now have unlocks available for firmwares up to, and including 4.2.1. iPhone 4 firmware 4.1+ is slated as 'soon to follow'...whatever that means haha.

You can find them in the usual locations; iphone-devteams website.

If you are not already jailbroken, you can use Limera1n. The procedure is fairly straightforward.

To unlock, there is a nifty new exploit for iPhones with basebands 05.14 & 05.15. It involves upgrading to an iPad baseband (06.15) using the PwnageTool.

Read more here.

I you do go through with it, please post your impressions/experience. I thought my iPhone was a goner (I have a thread here relating my water + iPhone experience) but it turns out after multiple resets the phone works perfectly still. I have succesfuly jailbroken using Limera1n but have yet to test this new unlock.

Cheers!

Edit: just saw that there are risks involved, including losing GPS.

I did it on my old 3G for the guy who bought it from me (He updated like a 'tard).

It works perfectly with the 6.15 baseband firmware. No GPS issues on his phone. Unlocked from rogers to Bell, working 100%
