    You can use Redsn0w 0.9.9b7b to jailbreak first and to update to ipad baseband.

    I got redsn0w 0.9.9b7b, now I just run it with update baseband and install cydia and that's it?
    After that I just unlock with ultrasn0w?

    What do you mean by: If you accept the risk?
    Is this method that new?

    No, it is not a new method.

    WARNING — YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE CONSEQUENCES OF UPDATING TO 06.15.

    1. There is no way to come back down from 06.15, and there’s no hiding the baseband version from Apple. You’ll be voiding your warranty in a very obvious way.
    2. If some future baseband comes out with a critical fix, you won’t be able to update to it if it remains down in the 05.xx sequence (then again, you wouldn’t update to it if you wanted to keep your unlock anyway).
    3. Starting with FW 4.2.1 if you have 06.15 on your iPhone you won’t ever be able to restore to stock firmware (it will fail). You’ll need to only restore to custom IPSWs (then again, if you’re unlocker you should already be doing that).

    Certainly don’t update to 06.15 if you don’t need to! Only do this if you need the unlock and you’re stuck on 05.14 or 05.15, and you’re willing to assume the above risks.
    Also, the gps won't work.

    Oh, yeah... I'm aware of those risks about voiding my warranty and losing the GPS. TBH I don't mind about losing the GPS or the apple warranty, so if after that all I must do is use redsn0w I think I'm good to go.

    I'll let you know if I have anymore questions. Thanks!

    Hi,

    Ok I have the same phone as above(3GS iOS 5.0 BB 05.16.05). What if I don't want to loose the GPS.
    I think GPS is very important and useful. How do I unlock without breaking the Gps?

    cheers.

    Sorry Piklishi. That's the only option.

    Well so far that's it ...but I have some hope, maybe we can get this done in a couple months. Some hard work and we can do it, go team go.

    Thank you guys, all of you who help in this forum.
