    Go to the download tab on the site and git either of them three firmwares. Make sure it's the one for ya phone. Open iTunes put us phone into dfu mode and shift restore and point it to the firmware ya downloaded

    I tried as you suggested. Through iTunes I tried to restore to iPhone2,1_4.2.1_8C148a_Restore.ipsw which is the good session according to tinyumbrella records. However, iTunes reached a 1013 error. I opened tinyumbrella and kicked it out of recovery, but it stayed in recovery mode.

    I hashed out # the gs.apple.com on the hosts file and tried again, still no good.

    So, what is the process for restoring, do you need to change any settings, start TSS or something? Is it possible to do a similar downgrade restore through redsnow?

The latest one 5.1.1 or an earlier 4.2.1 good version?

    And I think this phone has the new bootrom, does that means the baseband is permanently corrupt now?

    Thanks.
    When I say Bricked I mean the phone isnt usable do to the imei missing, bluetooth missing or showing zero's, etc. (same as the pictures in this post)

    Manually select 5.1.1 as assuming thats what software version your on if you have a 3GS or 4.2.1 on a 3G. The new bootrom does not matter however if your phones serial number is later than week 34 of 2011 then unfortunately theres nothing you can do. This is for people you have older serial numbers (like the picture) but still experienced the corrupted baseband.

It can be fixed. Heres how we have fixed several. Follow the directions exactly.

    -Get the phone to power on, which it will be very slow, searching for network and constantly rebooting
    -Once on slide to power off (very important)
    -Use latest version of redsnow and manually select your ipsw (it wont do it automatically for you on a bricked phone)
    -Go to jailbreak, tick off install cydia and install ipad baseband

    After reflashing the baseband your wifi, bluetooth, imei etc. should all be back to normal. For some reason a portion of the downgrade or upgrade to ipad baseband doesnt work which causes this issue however reflashing it has always solved the issue

    THIS WILL NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM IF YOU TRIED FLASHING AN IPAD BASEBAND ON A NEWER IPHONE 3GS WITH THE NEW NOR CHIP
    man, i did as you say but i got a message that says: panic, we are hanging here. what can i do?thanks

    Sorry to hear about that bud, if you have the newer 3gs, you can hopefully get a warranty replacement

    Apparently, this no longer works as I tried exactly what is described regarding 4.2.1 as well as 5.1.1. Using 4.2.1 i got errors when attempting the base band upgrade causing the process to stop, then was met with no BB UPGRADE when using 5.1.1 as the ipsw reference. I din't believe Apple is signing 4.2.1 any longer which accounts for the iTunes error when attempting a restore in iTunes.

    Believe me, I was hoping this would work as I have no WiFi, no IMEI or Blurtooth or for that matter ANY BB reported under settings.

    Default Replace baseband chip.
    I think that the only solution is to replace the baseband chip. has anyone done it succesfully? I found one baseband chip at ebay ($18) but i dont know if any works for my 3gs, 2009 week 24. Thanks!

    is the IMEI or bluetooth showing?

    have you tried to restore it back to 5.1.1?

    you should at least try to restore it to see if it fixes the missing elements

    no you should stay away from iOS 6, it will update your baseband which thus will lose the unlockability to use another carrier sim
