I don't follow the 3gs much, but how are people able to update to 4.0 while still preserving their baseband? can't 3g users use whatever program 3gs users use?

    Baseband is preserved by using PwnageTool. Firmware bundles are hardware specific. 3G users could use this blacksn0w release, but first they need iOS 4 with preserved baseband. That is not possible for them yet.

    I hope and can't wait for an unlock for 5.12.01. I am with T-Mobile and would hate to transfer to AT&T politics!

    Ahh yes the joys of having 04.26.08 baseband on 3.1.3, LoL. Come on Apple, give us something thats worthy of a challenge. These custom firmwares are really getting boring now days.

    There will definitely be an unlock after iOS4 is released. MuscleNerd said that the same exploit exists in all baseband including iOS4 GM. So unless they patch it up by the time public release is made, we'll definitely see an unlock soon after.

    If they do patch it, then there's even less reason to not release :P

    Nothing to worry about if you're simply looking to jailbreak, yes?

    This is talking about 4.0 GM, not 3.1.2. Wait for the Dev Team to release Ultrasn0w for 4.0 and then update.

    so theoretically couldn't i restore my 3g to 4.0 (upgrading the baseband), use fuzzyband (hopefully it works on 4.0) to downgrade back to 05.11.07 (yes, i have the 05.08 bootloader), then use this unlock?

    it makes sense in my head but i'm a little nervous to try it


    EDIT: Too late to stop me now guys, I'm restoring to 4.0 now. I'll report back with what happens.

    Damn! I knew I forgot something.

    I restored to 4.0 and jailbroke with redsn0w, but now I'm stuck at the emergency call screen. I'm assuming this is because my 3g isn't hacktivated/legitimately activated.

    Is there any way to do this? I have an at&t sim, so maybe i'll try messing around with that to see if i can make something happen.

    grrrrrr i'm so close! i was able to properly jailbreak 4.0 on my 3g, but i can't get cydia set up. the icon is white and has no sources, so i added this ([url=http: // apt.saurik.com / cydia-3.7) and it now shows me that i have 5 upgrades. when i try to upgrade them, i get this error:

    http:// apt.saurik.com
    NetDB: Open nodename nor servname provided, or not known

    and it won't let me get past this. if only i could fix this then i could hopefully use fuzzy band and then this unlock!

    I've been using this unlock for the past 24-36 hours. It works great!

    However... I cant receive MMS after unlocking. :-( i keep getting the "The media content was not included due to a picture resolution or message size restriction" message. Is anyone else having this issue? If not, can you tell me EXACTLY what you did to not have it. I've tried all of the MMS settings, i can send but not receive.

    Did you update the Cydia Bundle before beginning the custom firmware process? Thats the only thing that i can think of that would've made a difference. I opened Cydia (WiFi), accepted the upgrades, added the repo, installed the UNLOCK, and i was in business.
