    shady_jd1511 years, 9 months ago

    How about the iPhone 2G. I want to upgrade to 3.1.2 and jailbreak using blackra1n. And than unlock by installing ultrasn0w. Is that possible? I’m on 3.0 now it doesn’t seem to be working so fine. So I want to try 3.1.2. Would doing so lock my iPhone? Baseband is already 04.05.04_G and I read somewhere that ultrasn0w only works with 4.28 something abseband.

    Any help would be kindly appreciated.

    If you have already jailbroken your phone then install fuzzyband (via Cyndia). That will check the bootloader and determine if you can downgrade the baseband from 05.11.07 back to 04.26.08. Basically, bootloader versions 5.08 (aka 5.8) and lower have are able to be used to downgrade the baseband; however, 5.09 (aka 5.9) and above this is just not possible.
