    Default 3GS 6.15 baseband not able to restore or turn on
    Here is the story:

    I used redsn0w with a brand new 4.3.3 iPhone that my friend just got from the apple store, because he bricked the other, but they were nice enough to give him a new one. I downloaded the 4.3.3 ipsw and selected the options install cydia and install the iPad baseband (he's on tmobile so he needs it unlocked). Everything went fine until we launched cydia and it kept saying it was preparing the file system, for over 20 minutes. So I shut the phone down and turned it back on.. same thing... Then i attempted to go through redsn0w again but only use the install cydia option. This seemed to go ok until the phone began to attempt to start and never started.

    Now the phone simply tries to boot but never actually does. It can still get into DFU mode.

    If I try to put a custom IPSW on it, I go through redsn0w to get it into DFU then go to iTunes, and iTunes does not let me, it gave me the 3149 error on windows and a generic one on my mac. I have tried to change the host file and that does not work. I am running Lion, but I have tried it on Windows 7 as well.

    I have also tried these methods:

    http://www.lovefortech.com/2011/05/1...ken-ios-4-3-3/

    http://www.redmondpie.com/downgrade-...utorial-guide/

    I tried to use tiny umbrella as well but it will not recognize the device or list any of its specs. When its in dfu i pressed fix recovery and at one point the phone gave me this screen: http://i53.tinypic.com/9u3oub.jpg

    I tried unchecking the set hosts to cydia on exit box and that did not make iTunes budge. I have tried this on windows and Lion.

    Do you guys have an thoughts or suggestions? Maybe I'm doing something wrong? If anyone has insight or solution to this problem Could you list it out step by step on what I should do? I just want to make sure I do this right if there still is a way to fix it.

    At the moment the phone is stuck on trying to boot over and over again.

    Put phone into DFU.
    Open tinyumbrella start TSS server.
    Shift restore in iTunes and select cust 4.3.3.
    Upon reaching error 1013 close tinyumbrella and iTunes and put the phone into DFU.
    Download and run fixrecovery43. (if your using windows make sure you have permissions).
    Job done!

    Thanks for the help so far!

    Here is the order that I did things in and what happened.

    First I put the phone in DFU without using redsn0w, turned on tiny umbrella and ran the server. Then i turned on iTunes and tried to install the custom IPSW, it gave me error 1600. I went on to use fix recovery43 and it seemed to do its job. After it was done the phone was still just trying to boot, but would not.

    Then I put the phone into DFU using redsn0w and repeated the process, except iTunes actually updated the phone. Problem is, it will not come out of DFU mode now. I tried to run fix recovery43 and it gave me this:

    "Hooking jump_to command
    libusb:error [darwin_transfer_status] transfer error: timed out
    Exiting libpois0n
    logout"

    i tried to go to DFU through redsn0w and did. Went to iTunes with tiny umbrella running its server and it gave me error 1600 again.

    Currently the phone is in DFU and will not come out whether i try to reset it or hold both buttons for 25 seconds+.

    Do this. Restore to a stock 4.3.3
    Will give u an error.
    Then run fixrecovery43.

    Or
    Instead of fixrecovery run redsn0w and install Cydia ..
    Will hacktivate it.
    If it works
    Follow this :
    Download SAM to Activate iPhone 4/3GS Officially on iOS 4.3.3 | Jaxov

    Then install Ultrasn0w.. Don do this if u used fixrecovery..


    Ps : I replied to the thread u made in other forum. Don pm me as I said there . follow this.. M sure it will work. It basically has to work.

    So I did the first one.

    I DFU'd it through redsn0w and then installed the stock operating system until iTunes gave me error 1015.

    Then I ran fixrecovery43 which seemed to work, but after everything was does it went straight back to DFU mode.

    This is the text from fixrecovery43

    If I attempt to press fix recovery on tiny umbrella it just stays on this screen: http://i53.tinypic.com/9u3oub.jpg and does not budge.

    I mentioned this on another thread with a similar issue. Try modifying the hosts.

    navigate to C: \Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ hosts
    and add this line at the bottom below the local hosts line:
    74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com

    Then redo the process

    I have already modified hosts

    Also, I am not sure if thats the proper way for it to function. But when the iPad base bands were installing the loading bar was about halfway and stayed there until the screen went black, so I am not sure if it crashed or what happened.

    Just trying to provide as much detail as possible.

    I think the problem is with u not having the blobs.. Do this.
    Download ifaith. Dump shsh for 4.3.3
    Make a signed ipsw with them.

    Restore.
    Then run fixrecovery 43 when u get 1015 . Let me know if it works.
