    You need to create a custom firmware of 4.3.3 from either snowbreeze 2.7.3 or Pwnage tools 4.3.3.1.
    Update your itunes to the latest
    Use the pwned dfu mode from Snowbreeze , Pwnage tools or Redsn0w RC16 to get your iphone into this pwned dfu mode.
    Run itunes : shift + restore to this cfw of 4.3.3 which is already placed on your desktop.
    Once you have restored, go to setting > General > modem firmware : let us know if you have the unlockable baseband.

    What do you mean by not working, have you cooked the firmware .

    You have to give a little more detail about not working. I can't help you if you don't describe current status.

    Now run redsn0w RC15 or 16 , browse to stock 4.3.3 fw. Check only the box : set iphone into pwned dfu. Once this is completed, a message will appear saying : dfu done and your screen is black.
    Run itunes and shift + restore to cfw of 4.3.3

    You can run redsn0w RC8 to hactivate it. You need to browse to stock 4.2.1 when running redsn0w.

    Run redsn0w again but this time choose tether boot.

    Once you have tethered boot it, you can run GreenPoison RC 6 over your current jailbreak to go untethered jailbreak.
