You can definitely unlock it with the iPad baseband if you need to. But on the slim chance it has 5.8 bootloader you can downgrade baseband with those.

    When i use redsno0w 0.9.6b5 to jailbreak and unlock my phone. how should i go about it.

    Should i select these:

    Install Cydia
    Install Ipad Baseband
    Just enter pwned DFU Mode right now

    ....and would it o.k. if i selected Enable Multitasking as well?

    Then i'd continue and restore with the custom firmware created by redsn0w, right?

    Thanks

    Use redsnow 0.9.6rc8.
    Point it to a regular 4.2.1 firmware.
    Choose to install cydia and the iPad baseband (stay away from multitasking, it will slow down your phone big time).
    Follow instructions for entering DFU.
    Let redsnow do its thing.
    Open cydia, install all updates, reboot, then install ultrasnow.
    Done

    No. The 05.15.04 baseband still isn't unlockable. The only way to unlock it is by implanting the iPad 06.15.00 baseband, destroying the GPS permanently and will require a lifetime of custom updates (ie: no option to "virginize" your phone).

    It's a heavy decision. I wish people would be clearer about it.

    I think you mean 5.15.04 is not unlockable.

    Double checking......Still no unlock available for 4.2.1 with 5.15.04???
    I am beginning to assume that no one is working on it and it won't happen. Seems everything is aimed at the iPhone4 and later basebands.

    Do you think this unlock is not likely to happen?
    Was there some reason why it seemed more difficult..or just all effort went to other things?

    I'm not sure we will we see another unlock at this point. Especially since apple is selling them unlocked in the US now.

    And what about now, is there any way to downgrade to 3.x.x, that would be even better...

    PS: My bootloader is 5.8M3S2.

    iPhone 3G can always downgrade to 3.1.3. With that bootloader you can also downgrade your baseband with fuzzyband.

    3.1.3 is as good as it is gonna get on a iPhone 3G speed wise.

    A quick google of "how to use fuzzyband" should bring up a tutorial on downgrading your baseband if you want to do that.
