    Congrats to you

    Now that your bb gets stabilised , all future restore must be custom firmware so you don't disturb the Baseband.

    You cannot restore to 5.0 as apple stops signing this firmware , saving the blob will not help you to restore. You can only restore to custom firmware of 5.0.1 but Ultrasn0w will not unlock your ipad baseband. You might as well stay at 4.1.

    I downgraded a 3GS from 5.0.1 to 4.1 and did the Ipad BB upgrade. Ultrasn0w works fine. I get reception for T-mobile fine.

    Maybe the area just has bad reception?

    Okay I created a custom firmware with sn0wbreeze and installed iPad baseband and it will not unlock with ultrasn0w. If the baseband is the iPad baseband why doesn't it unlock?

    Okay so it would be nice to get a straight answer. Can iOS 5.01 be unlocked with the iPad baseband or not? I can go to 4.1 and unlock it but I'd like iOS 5. I am on iOS 5.01 with the iPad baseband but ultrasn0w does not unlock it. Anyone?

    No, Ultrasn0w will not unlock at IOS 5.0.1, this is my straight answer. If you don't believe me, go ahead and test it out.

    I have found that out. Right now I have a 3GS that's on 4.1. Hopefully soon there will be an unlock for iOS 5.x. So now I have the iPad baseband on it so is there a way to put it back to a 3GS baseband yet or not? If so can a Gevey SIM be used for it? Not a huge deal 4.1 isn't all that bad but I do like the iCloud on iOS 5.x

    Dude!
    Whatever you did throw it away!
    Read THIS COMPLETELY! Its not a direct step by step process! I have added some point intermittently as NOTE:

    Do a offical restore via iTunes at iOs4.1 iPSW
    kickout with Tiny umberella when it gets stuck with iTunes error!
    Do a JB via RedSn0w with Select ipsw iOS4.1 and make sure you turn on XP SP2 Compatibility mode
    After JB it will reboot!
    Install ultrasno0w
    Put your SIM!
    You will get the signal
    If not try installing SAM!
    If it stuck with that too!
    Do a JB again with same steps above when it now do SAM installation again!
    if you reboot it will get stuck with Connect to Itunes screen
    Now do a JB again with this RedSN0w MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service and now install ultrasn0w make sure you tick install Ipad BB so that your Bb gets stablized!
    Note: Still didnt get the SIM try Enable and Disable AirPlane mode!
    Also make sure you that you turn 3G OFF before inserting any SIM or when it trys to connect!
    After some successful calls enable 3G if you need

    Note: Never ever update through iTunes!
    Always wait for Custom Firmware Cookers to out!

    A million thanks to iYeow!

    Huh...really...Ultrasn0w supposedly doesn't support 5.0.1 regardless of the baseband.
