Thread: Downgrade 3G Baseband from 2.30 to 2.28

    mate you're really something.....
    I'm trying to tell you that it worked for me and trust me this phone hasn't been unlock by orange, let me be more explicit I SAW THIS POST AND DECIDED TO TRY ALTHOUGH BL VERSION WASN'T A MATCH, before I copied the files I removed the sim with the xsim turbosim what ever it's called (because it didn't work without it), did all the steps in the guide, restarted, installed yellowsnow restarted and put the sim in without turbo sim and it works, not once in this process did iTunes start soo instead of being such a "know it all" try to figure out why it worked and duplicate the result

    Yellowsn0w does not and can not work with BB 2.30.03.
    I don't know what you've done but if your phone is reporting BB 2.30 YellowSn0w aborts.

    Dear Bul3ang31,

    Thanks for sharing your success story unlocking your iphone.
    I have iPhone3G 2.2.1 with BB 2.30.3 with universal Sim v6.20.

    I'll appreciate, sharing the tools and procedure how to unlock mine.
    Thanks in advanced.

    [Edit]OK - Just checked - that model is locked to orange Romania BUT they offer an official unlock.

    This phone has been unlocked by orange and has nothing to do with yellowSn0w or the Boot Loader.[/edit]
    Now only if there was a policy like this in the UK

    Remove your god damn IMEI number before it gets blocked! And I don't believe you.

    so if some countrys allow the iphone to be unlocked why is it that we (US, other places) cant trick the iphone into thinking its form that place and have itunes just unlock it?

    that would be great.

    But impossible.

    I believe the imei is sent to Apple (via iTunes) and it needs to be on their database of unlocked phones.
    The Dev Team do not believe it is possible to hack this.

    Unless if you could get iTunes to re-direct to a bogus list which contains your own IMEI.

    I really think you should read up on this - iTunes has to send back an encrypted key based on your IMEI (if I understand correctly) so a bogus list wouldn't work.
    The Dev team have explained in some detail why they believe it is not possible and, with all due respect, I think they have probably considered all possible work rounds.
    There is always a possibility that they have missed something but....

    Will this work if I jailbreak using QuickPwn in Windows?

    Thumbs down Vague Statements
    Why between now and then someone has to post a reply and be not clear about his successfull story, or is it a place to show off.

    IphoneNovice, if you have iPhone 3G with 2.2.1 with BB 2.30.3 noway on earth quickpwn can make it run, unless you are not on earth, or you can submit your proof here.

    So universal Sim and Quickpwn do unlock iPhone you don't have to use both at same time.

    this thread is about downgrading baseband from 2.30.3 to 2.28.
    i dont think quickpwn can downgrade baseband for iPHone 3G, if you know how please teach us.

    Will what work?

    Walidn, I meant that to even downgrade using the method on this post I need to have a jailbroken, de-activated phone right?
    To jailbreak, I have been advised to use QuickPwn, and obviously to use the phone I'd need to use a universal (piggyback) sim. \
    But after jailbreaking is there any hope that if i have the correct bootloader I might be able to use this to downgrade and use my phone without a turbo sim?

    I just want to clear something up... There is no way to unlock an iPhone 3G BB 2.30.30 with a BL 5.09??? We are still waiting, correct?

    When will you illiterate americans understand that "persay" is not a word?

    "Per Se" is latin, and it's raped into "persay" because you can't pronounce it correctly.

    Sigh, kids these days...
