If the baseband has been downgraded but no GPS or “no service”, try redsnow’s “Deactivate” option if you do not rely on using Ultrasnow anymore. So try that and see what happens, hopefully it will work.

Also worth re-installing mobilesubstrate as well.

How.....? That guide tells you what to do in case that happens, just follow what it says.

I know the guide tells you how to do it,I have tried but it won't work,I end up with no service and have to reboot and then just boot with red snow to get cydia to work :-/

Lemme look this up real quick. I'll see if I can find something...
I read something about there possibly being an error with Mobile Substrate, try uninstalling and reinstalling it and see if it does anything.

Ok,thanks for the help,I've tried reinstalling and no joy,it just shuts cydia down so I have to boot it just to get the unlock to work,if I don't boot it I just end up with no service,it won't even downgrade bb from 6.15 :-/

I'm looking into this a bit more. I'll be on Google for a while, I'll tell you if I find anything.

since you are already on 05.13.04, restore to a STOCK 5.1.1 preferable using itunes, and yes this will update your baseband to 05.16.05, then use redsn0w to flash to the ipad baseband along with selecting Cydia to be installed..
after it installs, install ultrasn0w and test your carrier signal out
then use redsn0w to downgrade the ipad baseband, but make sure not to select any other options in redsn0w

Tried and failed,it's now on iPad bb but when I try to downgrade with red snow it says connected device doesn't support untether,tried again and redsnow failed and shut down,going to try again tomorrow

Maybe you should try it on a different computer, it can make a big difference sometimes.

I have same problem, tried 3 different PC with Win 7 Ultimate X64 but NO luck, every time I tried, the bb still show 6.15 but it seems corrupted since keep searching signal even without SIM so I have to re-flash the iPad bb again. Does anyone downgrade bb to 5.13.04 from 6.15 successfully. Thanks in advance.
06-24-2012, 01:24 PM #18
I've see lots of people be successful with it. So yes, it works.
Tell us how it goes. Be warned that flashing the baseband takes a LONG time so be patient.

Here's how I did it, cant guarantee it will work if you try it, but you can if you wish:
Originally my 3gs was on a custom 4.2.1 (jailbroken) but no ultrasn0w installed. I used redsn0w 0.9.14b1 and selected only the Install Ipad Baseband. Once it was done, I selected only the Downgrade Ipad baseband. Once that was done, I installed ultrasn0w, inserted m t-mobile sim, waited for 2-3 minutes for "Searching..." and I got a signal
Be aware that musclenerd does indeed know about this issue and is currently trying to update redsn0w so it will fix this issue...

So did you install and downgrade iPad bb from fw 5.1.1 or 4.2.1? I used custom fw 5.1.1 but it seems corrupted iPad bb every time I did, even I re-download redsn0w 0.9.14b1 3 times. So I went back to fw 4.1, I was able to install iPad bb but cannot downgrade, it ran thru all steps, reboot then show bb 6.15 again then keep searching after install ultrasn0w. I guess I must did something wrong here. Any advice will be appreciates. Thanks.
