Thread: Unlocking 3g 5.14.02?

  1. #1
    Default Unlocking 3g 5.14.02?
    Other day my iPhone 3g 4.0.1 just randomly decided to put itself in recovery mode. Me being stupid and not messing with jailbreak/unlocking for a year or two I stupidly updated to 4.2.1 with iTunes, and now my baseband is at 5.14.02. I already looked, and I have a bootloader of 5.09 so Fuzzyband isn't gonna work. Is there any way to downgrade/unlock my iPhone BESIDES upgrading to baseband of the iPad 6.15?

    Thanks

    No. To unlock, one software choice exists ... installing the iPad baseband + ultrasn0w. The gavey SIM is a hardware/external option with some reported success .... only with an iPhone 4

    If it's an iPhone 3G you should check the bootloader version. If it is 5.8 you may downgrade the baseband to unlock. Check with F0recast from iH8Sn0w.com

    Please stop perpetuating the 3G/3GS Gevey myth. There is no reported success on those phones. Every person *who actually tried it* on this board clearly reported the Gevey does not work on 3G/3GS. Gevey does reportedly work with iPhone 4 on this board. But I haven't seen anything for 3G/3GS.

    I think it's just a misunderstanding. Right Mes?

    As of recent you are correct, Gevey is only meant for iPhone 4 in regards to unlocking on iOS 4.

    +1. Without the correct adapter it's next to impossible to make the latest versions work. Guess they dropped standard SIM support altogether.

    Even with a home-made adapter, fake Gevey Pro didn't work in my 3GS at all even though I know the phone could see it (ICCID being read).

    My guess is the Gevey is able to execute non-standard code in the baseband's native OS, which is different between the iPhone 4 (ThreadX) and 3G/3GS (Nucleus).
