I downgraded from 3.0 beta 5 and downgraded my baseband perfectly with this app on firmware 2.2.1! Awesome thanks!

If this only would work on 5.09. DARN!

Y'all are getting WAY to caught up on this serial number thing. WOW! Just download the app and run it. It takes 1 minute and you'll know what your bootloader is.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

5.09 was released specifically to stop this working!He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Guys... can anyone tell me the address to add in the bigboss repo? Id like to try this but thus far no ones given any helpful info.

If you want to know what boot loader you have on your phone, maybe you should take the time to, oh I don't know.. READ post 1?
We almost need a mini dictionary attached to threads like this which defines firmware, baseband and boot loader. People interchange these terms far too frequently.
By the way KUDOS to the programmers who made this program. It really simplifies things.

Used it and it worked like a charm. Lucky to have a 5.08 bootloader.

So I'm assuming if one were to download this and upon trying to run it it crashes, that means that the bootloader is 5.09+ ?

For those of you who are having crashing issues please confirm you have already downgraded your firmware to 2.2.1 and are downloading this from Cydia. (as opposed to on 3.0 beta on downloading from icy).
You can always download and run the "3G Baseband downgrader" app as an alternative. If it runs and says "failed" at the end you'll know you have the 5.09 or higher bootloader. I have tried this method dozens of times and it doesn't do any damage.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

I officially love this app. I had a relatively new iPhone that had the newest bootloader on it and could not be downgraded, and I was stuck on one of the 3.0 basebands. I had that iPhone swapped out at the Apple Store today, and the manufacturing date on the replacement was Week 17 of 2009. Sure enough, it had 2.2.1 and the 02.30.03 baseband on it. On a whim, I decided to run this downgrader anyway as I knew the replacement phones were usually refurbished and I could potentially have an older motherboard with the 5.08 bootloader on it(a very slim chance yes, but I figured what the hell). I loaded up the downgrader and stood in total shock as it showed me what my bootloader was...5.08. I was able to downgrade successfully and now have the 02.28.00 baseband. @#$% YEAH!
For anyone who has had their iPhone replaced by Apple, you may want to check your bootloader as you could get lucky like I did. I can post a screenshot if anyone wants showing that I do in fact have a Week 17 of 2009 iPhone with the 02.28.00 baseband. I'm pretty sure this would only be possible on replacement units from Apple but it's still better than nothing!
