Hi - first post, be gentle, here goes
Completed jailbreaking my 3GS with evasi0n 6.1.2 and have been trying unsucessfully to unlock it using Redsn0w_win_0.9.15b3
I used a page at Redmond Pie - "Downgrade iPhone 3GS / 3G 06.15.00 To 05.13.04 Baseband For Unlock And Working GPS" and have done everything step by step and keep coming up against the error "Failed to decrypt kernel"
The current baseband is 05.16.08
The ISPW file is iPhone2,1_6.1.2_10B146_Restore
I used DFU mode to find the Bootrom is 359.3.2 so I chose 'New Bootrom'
I followed advice to run Redsn0w as administrator in XP sp3 compatibilty mode. When I point it at the ISPW file and press the Jailbreak button I get the 'Failed to decrypt kernel' and so never get to the 'Downgrade from iPad baseband' stage
I've searched a lot before coming and asking, but kind find any helpful advice - am I doing something stupid?
