Try again if you can. There was a method to download the iPad BB separately and install it from the local copy, but I can't remember which utility did it

    Not sure it matters as long as it 'one at a time'. Hope it works

    thanks Mes. I think is was Pwned Tool that allowed you to install the baseband from a local copy... I'll report back...

    There is no need to install Cydia if you already have a custom firmware created. It will install Cydia automatically.

    Report Time!

    So, it all went pretty damn well, considering. I got 06.15.00 BB on there with redsn0w, had some problems locking up on the apple screen afterwards. Wasn't able to put the custom firmware on there via DFU mode as I was getting error 1600 from itunes. Put it in restore mode (holding down the home key while plugging in, letting go of home once the itunes logo came up on the iphone) and loaded the custom firmware - that worked!

    I left my old and expired AT&T chip in there most of the time. Said "waiting for activation" alot. Once I installed ultrasn0w, I popped my local Panama carrier's SIM in and, voila! Worked just fine with a custom IPSW without Hacktivation necessary. I assume that PUSH messages and the like will all come through ok?

    Seems that the only GPS data I'm getting is via the cell network - I don't get a fix if I take the SIM out (I do get one with the SIM inserted). So, I figure my GPS is kaput. Oh well.

    Thanks to everyone here who helped out in the process!

    Hi again folks,

    So, when I built the IPSW, I checked the Multitask checkbox. I'm on a 3G, and it seems pretty slow in general. I'm thinking it might be because I'm loading it down with the multitasking, and perhaps I should only selectively multitask with backgrounder. Is there a way to turn off native multitasking, or would I have to flash it with a new custom IPSW without multitasking?

    thanks!

    As most members will tell you 4.2.1 is pretty slow and runs like crap on a 3G. You're better off going to something like 3.1.3 as iOS 4 in general wasn't really meant for a 3G.

    I found rejailbreaking works. Just make sure the multitasking feature is not selected this time. Yeah multitasking has been a huge issue with the 3G as it really wasn't meant for it but give it a try and see if it works for you.

    Springtomize (a paid Cydia app) has an option to enable/disable multi-tasking
