I have been researching and researching and i have yet to find the specific answer to my problem so im finally posting this after hours of looking. If this question was answered already I apologize.
I currently have an iPhone 4 4.2.1 with the baseband 3.10.01. I was wondering if the gevey sim will unlock my phone (for t-mobile) if i update to 5.0.1 while preserving the baseband with redsn0w?
On the applenberry website it says "•Works on iOS 4.1, 4.2, 4.2.1, 4.3, 4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.3.3 and (5.0, 5.0.1 with PRESERVE BaseBand 4.10)". Im just confused if it only unlocks the phone with the baseband 4.10 or if its 4.10 and below.
And also i believe that the gevey sim is the only option in unlocking this phone. ultrasn0w isnt compatible am i right?
Can anybody clarify this for me? Again if this is simplier than it is and im only thinking to much into it i apologize. I just want to make sure im not making a mistake in updating my phone.

Yes Gevey him will unlock your current baseband, if you want to go for 5.0.1, you must have 5.0.1 shsh blob and must restore to stitched ifaith custom firmware to preserve your current baseband for Gevey him unlock.
