Upgrade iPhone 3GS 05.16.01, 05.16.02 to iPad Baseband 06.15.00 [How-To Guide]

If you want to unlock iPhone 3GS baseband 05.16.01 or 05.16.02, you must first upgrade it to iPad baseband 06.15.00. After upgrading to iPad baseband, you can use Ultrasn0w 1.2 to unlock your iPhone. You can either use Sn0wbreeze 2.4b1 or Redsn0w 0.9.6b5 to upgrade your iPhone 3GS baseband to 06.15.00 but for some reason, upgrading my iPhone 3GS baseband 05.16.02 to 06.15.00 using Sn0wbreeze ended up in iTunes 1002 error.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: DO NOT use this guide as it is outdated. Use this guide to fully jailbreak and unlock iPhone 3GS baseband 05.16.02 on iOS 4.3.3.
Redsn0w 0.9.6b5 Upgrade iPhone 3GS 05.16.01, 05.16.02 to iPad Baseband 06.15.00 [How To Guide]
UPDATE#1: iH8sn0w has just released Sn0wbreeze 2.5.1 which allows you to upgrade to iPad baseband without any 1002 or other restore error. Just download Sn0wbreeze 2.5.1 from here and follow this guide to upgrade to iPad baseband (Works on iOS 4.3.1).

UPDATE#2: Downgrade iPad baseband 06.15.00 to 05.13.04 is very much possible!

iPad Baseband on iOS 4.2.1 Upgrade iPhone 3GS 05.16.01, 05.16.02 to iPad Baseband 06.15.00 [How To Guide]
Note: I used this method because Sn0wbreeze 2.4b1 was not working for me. It might work for you but as confirmed by Salracing and Radio, those iPhone 3GS users who have baseband 05.16.01 or 05.16.02 might get error 1002 while restoring custom IPSW made with Sn0wbreeze tool. Also Redsn0w will fail to upgrade your baseband to iPad baseband if your iPhone 3GS is running iOS 4.3 or iOS 4.3.1, it has been confirmed by Jhey and Marcel. Keep in mind that upgrading to iPad baseband may cause you to lose your GPS functionality and downgrading iPad baseband back to 05.16.01 or 05.16.02 is also not possible for now.

    Hi, is there currently an unlock for the iPhone 3gs 5.0.1 with baseband 5.16.05?

    •  
      Patrick2 years, 9 months ago

      Hi,

      Unfortunately there is no unlock solution for baseband 5.16.05. Your only option is to install iPad baseband and unlock.

    Hi all, I am trying unlock a 3GS to use on t-mobile, currently it’s jail broken on iOS 5.0.1(9A405) w/ baseband 5.16.05. I have installed ultrasn0w 1.2.5 from Cydia, and found out the 5.16.05 is not supported. Can I install the 06.15.00 baseband w/ iOS 5.0.1 ?

    •  
      shawn2 years, 9 months ago

      OK, I have serial xx935xxxxxx and read that it ok to flash Baseband 6.15.00 (ipad) being it is older the xx136xxxxxx, but there is a possibility that the GPS will stop working and a fast battery drain. Has anyone done this and what are your results? thanks.

    nguyenw2 years, 10 months ago

    Hey guys. So right now, my 3GS is on 4.3.3, ipad baseband 06.15.00. I’ve read over at modmyi that it’s possible to upgrade to iOS 5 untethered. Is this true? And if it is, can you post a guide/give me a link to a trustworthy guide?

    Thanks in advance.

    •  
      Jacklord2 years, 10 months ago

      @nguyenw Hi,

      As of now, no untethered jailbreak is available for the iOS 5. But based on the progress of the dedicated members of the jailbreak community, hopefully it comes before the year ends.

      We will make sure to provide a guide as soon as it comes out though. ;)

      •  
        nguyenw2 years, 10 months ago

        @Jacklord If I upgrade to iOS 5 and don’t care about jailbreaking and unlocking (for now), will my phone still work? I tried to upgrade to iOS 5 Golden Master but it didn’t work so I had to put it back on 4.3.3 and 06.15.00.

        If it does work, can you tell me what I should keep in mind while doing it?

        Thank you.

        •  
          Jacklord2 years, 10 months ago

          @nguyenw Yes, 3GS is still supported by iOS 5 so you can upgrade with no problem. If you are relying on a baseband unlock, you must first preserve your baseband by using Sn0wbreeze or Redsn0w (Mac only) to create a custom iOS 5 IPSW which you will use to restore.

        •  
          nguyenw2 years, 10 months ago

          @Jacklord I tried to use Sn0wbreeze to create the custom iOS 5 IPSW (which to be honest, I’m not exactly sure why I’m doing this.) But I get a 3194 error right when SHIFT+click in iTunes to restore. Any idea?

          Thanks Jacklord.

        •  
          Jacklord2 years, 10 months ago

          @nguyenw HI,

          Try resolving the 3194 error with this: http://bit.ly/qVGQaq

          If not you can try updating to iOS 5.0.1.. You are creating custom IPSWs so that you can preserve your current baseband.

    Thanks pramod for the quick answer. So there isnt a way to restore with a custom IPSW of IOS5 using sn0wbreeze and itunes ?

      Nope. All those cached TU SHSH blobs are useless.

    Jason2 years, 10 months ago

    If I have an Iphone 3gs with 5.0.1 on baseband 5.16.05. Now I know that to unlock I have to go to BB 6.15 and revert to Ios 4.3.3 (or something like that) I also read that after I can this I can also downgrade again the BB from 6.15 (ipad) (see article http://jaxov.com/2011/04/downgrade-ipad-baseband-06-15-00-to-05-13-04-baseband-possible-confirmed/) But my question is after all this and that I am on iOS 4.2.1 and BB 05.13.04 can I upgrade to IOS 5 and keep that BB ??? I think there is a way with Sn0breeze. Thanks for the help ! :)

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 10 months ago

      Yes you can, but unfortunately you can only update to iOS 5.0.1 at the moment & Ultransn0w isn’t compatible with iOS 5.0.1 yet.

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      Yes it will work for you as well. Just make sure that your pointing Redsn0w to a stock iOS 4.3.5 instead which is still a tethered JB. Use Redsn0w 0.9.9b8. I hope your aware of all the risks & forever consequences of updating your BB for an unlock.

  •  
    Albert2 years, 11 months ago

    Pramod
    Im still confuse about the process ( guide ) it says that is for 4.3.3
    Make sure your iPhone 3GS is running iOS 4.1 or iOS 4.2.1. If you are on iOS 4.3.1 or iOS 4.3, use this guide to downgrade your firmware to iOS 4.2.1
    is this means that I need to Download stock iOS 4.1 or iOS 4.2.1 IPSW for iPhone 3GS.
    then redsn0w ?????
    thanks again for your reply
    Albert

    •  
      Pramod2 years, 11 months ago

      Nope. Make sure you point Redsn0w to the iOS version that your currently running & proceed with the instructions. Keep in mind not to check the Install Cydia option if your already jailbroken & your good to go.

    Hey Pramod,

    Just wanted to update you on my issue with iPhone 3Gs and updating to the new iOS 5. I went into Apple today and they replaced my iPhone 3Gs even though it was 1 year past it’s warranty.

    They were very helpful, I have learnt- leave unlocking/jailbreaking to the professionals.

      If your talking about downgrading the BB, you cannot downgrade it unlike the iOS if updated. Updating the BB is a forever change.

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      Not only it causes heating / battery drainage issues, but it also wrecks your GPS functionality probably forever. (Google it in more detail if you wish to)

  •  
    Amy3 years ago

    Sorry I meant I was advised to get it Factory unlocked. I haven’t done this yet, will probably go in tomorrow to get that if there is no other way of fixing this. Putting in another SIM is still coming up with the same error: There is no Sim card installed in the iPhone you are attempting to activate.

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      You might want to first take it to the Apple Store to get it checked irrespective of the warranty. Listen to what they have to say about this issue & then decide. Just a suggestion. :D

    I did put a SIM card in the iPhone. It’s O2 which is originally what the iPhone is locked too. My SIM is a standard O2 card.

    Amy3 years ago

    Hi everyone,

    I did post a while back regarding issues unlocking my iPhone 3Gs. Since going in circles, trying all the different suggestions I went back and saw a few different shops to get advice. They all advised me not to unlock/jailbreak iPhone 3Gs as it will mess up the hardware. My best option was to have paid £45 to get it factory unlocked.

    I stupidly updated my iPhone 3Gs to the new iOS 5 software. Now my iPhone comes up with the error: There is no Sim card installed in the iPhone you are attempting to activate.

    I did research all night on google with many other people with the same issue. Apparenty if your iPhone was JB, it would mess up your iPhone if updating to iOS 5. This is very frustrating as I can’t go to Apple and I feel I have just broken a perfectly good iPhone.

    Any suggestions? Currently people who are still in their warrently have received a new replacement iPhone from Apple. My warrenty has expired :(

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      You need to atleast pop-in a SIM into your iPhone to activate your device with iTunes. So put in a SIM card & hook it upto iTunes. That’s it !! It has got nothing to do with the jailbreaks / replacements / warranties of your iPhone.

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      You need to get to the iPad BB if you want an unlock for your device. Make sure that your already aware of the risks / consequences of doing so. If you would still like to update your BB, you can use the latest version of Redsn0w.

    Hi, i have a similar situation with an 3GS with iOS 4.3.5 and baseband firmware 06.15.00, actually the phone is in tethered mode, because itunes give me an 1015 error.
    It’s the only way to boot the device.
    So i used redsn0w every time, with just tethered boot option.
    I start the proccess with an iOS 4.3.3 and modem firmware 05.16.02 and now i’m in this situation. i have cydia and repo666 for ultrasn0w 1.2.3 but when introduce a SIM the phone give me an INVALID SIM information. Any suggestion or other type of information about?

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      Nope, it does work with the iOS 4.3.5 as well. Make sure that your using the latest version of Redsn0w for that which is 0.9.9b4 for updating your BB on 4.3.5.

    Hi I just brought a used(one month) iphone 3gs.
    from the person i brought it he said you can unlock it. But as i am new i install itone and by mistake i update it. to 4.3.5 and bb 05.16.02. aafter searching i see this site that pramod helping everyone.
    i want to know few things from him
    if i update my bb to ipod can i also come to the same state as i am now? like no jailbreak nothing.
    and i also read it lost gps. one of my frnd said that after jailbreak it i can isntall tomtom gps and use it without internt. can i use this too?
    waiting for your reply

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      No, you cannot because if you want an unlock you obviously need to JB your iP3GS as well & unfortunately, the only way to get your iP3GS unlocked is by updating your BB to an iPad’s BB. Make sure that your aware of the risks of updating to the same (Google it) first & ONLY then proceed with the update. About TomTom GPS, I guess so you can use it offline even now, but it would still require a GPS connectivity to know where you are right now.

    I tried following that tutorial but when it comes to restoring the iPhone on iTunes by selecting the custom ipsw, I get an error saying “The iPhone could not be restored because the firmware file is not compatible”.

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      Well that’s because you have downloaded an IPSW file that’s meant for some other device model & is incompatible with your current iPhone model. Download the right one from here http://bit.ly/kjLNRn.

      Create a custom 4.1 IPSW & restore to it in a pwned DFU mode. Use Sn0wbreeze http://bit.ly/rq4MtY to create one & restore to it as instructed in the topic page.

  •  
    Amy3 years ago

    Pramod thank you for all your suggestions. Unfortunately I tried the SHSH thing you mentioned but that froze my iPhone and won’t work.

    Overall, from someone quite a newbie to this, I think Jailbreaking and Cydia rebooting has messed up my iPhone. My Safari doesn’t open up anymore. I have given up as I don’t want to mess up the iPhone anymore.

    I went in and spoke to someone in a shop specialising in unlocking iPhones, they told me they are still waiting for the right software and it may take up to 2 months. I think I am just going to wait and leave it to a professional.

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      Mhm, it means that your on an iOS version much higher than 4.3.3? That’s why I believe the same guy to whom you showed the iPhone to mentioned the same.
      What was it again? You didn’t mention that in the previous reply here. If your able to tel me what iOS version is it on, I could help you. You definitely need alot of patience for this. :D

    I have got Iphone 3GS 4.3.5 Base Band 5.16.02. I tried to downgrade it to 4.1 and was successful. Now i have IOS 4.1 with baseband 5.16.02. i Tried to change the baseband to 6.15.00 but the Screen is struck in “Fetching Ipad base band” for quite a long time.(More than 20 mins).

    Please advice where i have gone wrong.

    Thanks in Advance.

      Pramod3 years ago

      Yes, because it depends on your internet’s connectivity speed as to how long would it take to actually download the necessary iPad BB stuff off the Apple servers. You might want to switch over to a faster internet connection.

    None of that looks or sounds familiar, so no I don’t believe I saved the SHSHs. Would there be a way to check? When I attach my iPhone in recovery or DFU mode and use TinyUmbrella nothing appears in the “All Saved SHSHs” box.

  •  
    Marcus Cameron3 years ago

    Yes, I did click the install Cydia option even though my phone was already jailbroken, that was so stupid. And now, in trying to fix the problem, I bricked my phone, and it only goes into recovery mode!!! I should have been so much more careful. I am getting error 1015 when I try to restore iPhone through iTunes, because it needs to update from 4.3.3 to 4.3.5, and of course it won’t let me, given I changed firmware to iPad 06.15.00 in my attempt to unlock the phone.

    I tried option clicking restore to restore to a 4.3.3 .ipsw file I downloaded but the error message says that “this device isn’t eligible for the requested build”.

    I realize I screwed up big time, if you have any ideas at all about what I could do I would be so so tremendously appreciative.

    Modem Fireware: 06.15.00 and I have the iPhone 3GS. Sorry I dont know what BB stands for.

    My iPhone is jailbroken, I just want to unlock it now so it runs on all networks.

    •

      Did you tick mark the Cydia option again even when it was already jailbroken?
      What you can do right now is to use iFaith http://bit.ly/qIa3E7 & save your current 4.3.3 SHSH. Next, use the saved SHSH to create a signed IPSW http://bit.ly/krAj38 to which you can restore to. Redo the JB ONLY via Redsn0w & then complete the unlock procedure by installing Ultrasn0w from Cydia. Read this http://bit.ly/lAcuoN.

    Hi guys,

    I tried all the methods of jailbreaking using redSn0w but after installing Cydia my iPhone 3GS will not restore on iTunes.

    I then used this site http://www.UnlockiPhoneTool.com which claim to unlock all latest firmware. I paid $24.99 and the site claims they have a live 24/7 chat help and a contact number. This is not true so anyone wanting to go use this site, please don’t!

    I seem to install Cydia fine but once I have to reboot my iPhone it goes back to restore and now my iPhone refuses to restore at all. Initally when I installed the jailbreak using redSn0w, everything was fine but my iPhone was still locked to one network.

    Please, please can someone help me.

    •  
      Pramod3 years ago

      That’s right !! All these sites that claim to JB & unlock your iPhone are all scams to lure people into it.
      Which version of iOS are you on / tried to jailbreak your device with? What are your iPhone BB / model specs? Do you rely on an unlock? Please explain.

  •

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Read my previous reply. That’s the ONLY way that you can currently unlock your device. You must be willing to take the risks of updating to the iPadBB.

  •  
    vasant3 years, 1 month ago

    hi
    i just updated my ip3gs from 3.1.1 to 4.3.5
    i tried redsnow 0.9 8b7 and install cydia then tried ultrasnonw but its still showing sim failure what can i do.pls
    give any idea..

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Why did you do that? :S
      By doing so, you have now lost both your jailbreak & the ability to unlock your device. Restore your device back to iOS 4.1 custom IPSW first & then update your BB to an iPadBB to complete the unlock. Use Sn0wbreeze http://bit.ly/rq4MtY to create one & restore to it to jailbreak your device. Make sure that your aware of the risks of updating your BB to the iPadBB first & then proceed if you really want to using this post here. (GPS loss probability, battery drainage issues etc..)
      Always avoid updating your device until you have confirmed that a JB / unlock works absolutely fine on it.

    Silverang3 years, 1 month ago

    I recently upgrade my 3GS from 3.1.3 to the latest 4.3.5 with baseband 05.16.02 and only realised i cant unlock the phone. I had jailbreak it with redsnow but is boot tethered right now. I dont have any saved SHSH because i update straight from 3.1.3. Does it means i cant downgrade to other firmwares? What can i do to unlock the phone as well as jailbreak it again? Your help is very much appreciated… Thanks!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 1 month ago

      Yes, that definitely means that you cannot restore/downgrade to any other iOS versions for which you do not have an SHSH saved. Also, Ultrasn0w wouldn’t be able to unlock your device past 4.3.3 since it still has compatibility issues with 4.3.4 & 4.3.5. The best thing that you can try doing is to restore to iOS 4.1 custom IPSW because for some reason Apple is still signing it for the iP3GS. So grab it while it lasts. Before you proceed, see if Cydia is listing iOS 4.1 here http://bit.ly/qS5bjW as well.

    thanks

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      By locked to iTunes screen, what exactly do you mean? Recovery mode/Emergency Call screen? Error 1015 shows that you have already updated your BB to an iPad’s BB. Did you try doing that?

    DArren3 years, 3 months ago

    could i get in trouble for comfirming this? if it is…. and yes it was call/messages

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 3 months ago

      Nope. Your not in any trouble or anything. But you really might want to find out why the IMEI was blocked in the first place. Contact the person from whom you had brought this iPhone from & ask him the details. Its usually because the iPhone was reported stolen/missing.

  •  
    DArren3 years, 3 months ago

    Hey guys i have a iphone 3g 32gb i have ios 4.1 with ipad baseband now i used ultrasn0w to unlock which worked so i have carrier and signal but it still wotn use the phone capabilities.. pls tell me why?

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 3 months ago

      What phone capabilities are you talking about? Can you explain? If your not able to place a call/send messages, make sure that your IMEI isn’t blocked by your network. Call up your official iPhone carrier and confirm this first.

    A website or something

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 3 months ago

      Sorry we won’t. And to know why its illegal and how he police might know, Google it up. Hard to explain it here. Probably the closest analogy and easiest for you to understand - Why is unauthorised change of vehicle VIN illegal ? Its the same.

  •  
    Matty3 years, 3 months ago

    I’ve got the same problem it’s coz the network have blocked the phone from the back so whatever sim u put in you will never receive signal only thing u can do is change the imei.

    I need to know how to do this???
    Any ideas

    •

    think that my dock connector is faulty, i can no longer charge the phone. I’ve tried a new cable and a different computer/itunes account. How do i go about fixing this?

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 3 months ago

      Get it fixed by showing your iPhone at an Apple retail store as its a hardware related issue.

  •  
    Vickie3 years, 3 months ago

    itunes is not recognising the iphone at all, the computer will not recognise the phone either. This all happened after i ticked the option to update ipad bb. The unlock process said that the phone is not in DFU mode and closed the programme. New at this sorry!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 3 months ago

      Follow the steps mentioned on Step 11 to know how to put your iPhone in the DFU mode. You must keep in mind that the timing is important here. So make yourself ready to perform the next step before you finish the previous one.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 3 months ago

      You need to update to the iPad BB if you want to get yourself unlocked as 05.16.02 is not supproted by Ultrasn0w. Have you done that yet? What error is iTunes returning?

    ok i recently got my moms old iphone, and i restored and updated it to 4.3.3
    i then jailbroke it with redsn0w but my firmware thing is still 05.16.02
    i looked into it and apparently, it should change itself when your jailbreaking it.
    i really need this phone soon, so help would be amazing.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 3 months ago

      You’ll need to tick the Install iPad BB option as well while using Redsn0w to get your BB upto 06.15.00 to get it unlocked. Since now your already jialbrokeen, rerun Redsn0w, but this time tick only the iPad BB Update option and continue. Make sure your connected to the internet as well while running it.

  •  
    lowie macarasig3 years, 4 months ago

    hi, i have an iphone 3gs ios 4.3.3. i used snowbreeze v 2.7.1 for jailbreak which is very easy to use, then i installed baseband 6.15.00 because the default baseband of ios 4.3.3 is 5.16.02 which is not compatible for ultrasn0w 1.2.3. with the help of redsnow 0.9.6rc16, i choose ipad baseband on the checkbox. its done and its now unlocked!!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

      Awesome !! Though you could still complete both the procedure in one shot by using Sn0wBreeze alone w/o the need for Redsn0w. Also, you could have used the latest 2.7.3 version of Sn0wBreeze as it fixes more iOS bugs. But that’s OK as long as its running fine for you.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

      Are yout trying a T-Mobile SIM? You’ll need to switch OFF your 3G in that case since the iPhone’s h/w doesn’t support T-Mobile’s frequency. Once OFF, you’ll then be able to get the GSM signal at full bars.

  •  
    Sarath3 years, 4 months ago

    i just updated the Iphone version to 4.3.3(8J2) and my phone showing modem firmware as 05.16.02. i did jailbreak through redsnow and able to see Cydia on my phone, but wifi is not connecting to run ultrasn0w. After reading above history i assume because of my firmware its not connecting. So now i need to upgrade my firmware to 06.15.00 inorder to connect wifi properly to install ultrasn0w in cydia.Please let me know if my understanding is correct or not

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

      Nope, its not correct. Your BB/Modem FW will only matter when it comes to the topic of unlocking your iPhone so that it can be used on a different carrier. Even on 05.16.02, your Wi-Fi & BT should be still working as good as new. Since your Wi-Fi isn’t, I would suggest you to take it to the nearest Apple Store and get it checked because chances are that even if you update to 06.15.00, your Wi-Fi will not work even then. So take it to them before your update to 06.15.00 to preserve your warranty as well.

  •  
    machine3 years, 4 months ago

    So there is no hope for an actual 05.16.02 unlock?
    And no word from MuscleNerd? on downgrading from iPad baseband 06.15.00 to older baseband, even though he said that it was “99% doable”

  •  
    roni3 years, 4 months ago

    Hello i’ve updated the baseband to the one you told us to with the ipad process, yesterday it said no service and when i put in the original sim it worked. However, today even the original sim it has service but no bars where as the other sims which should be unlocked still remain with no service. I’ve tried 3g turn off/on… Airplane mode on/off… and network settings reset. I have also installed UltraSn0w correctly… it still doesnt work any clue?

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

      Try a SIM of different carrier to see if its behaving the same way. You might need to keep your 3G OFF as well till you try getting a signal as well.

  •  
    Ian3 years, 4 months ago

  •  
    Ian3 years, 4 months ago

    Hi Pramon, may i ask you a question about the normal iPhone IOS update please. when the iPhone update it’s IOS through iTune, will the Baseband also get update too? my iPhone 3GS currently run IOS4.3.1 with baseband 05.16.02 which i can’t jailbreak it, because of the signal issue.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

      Yes Ian, if you ever restore using a stock IPSW firmware via iTunes, it’ll update your BB. This is important for those who rely on an unlock and must make sure that they always use Custom FW restores only. Your iP3GS has got updated to the latest BB version of 05.16.02. Unfortunately, this BB version cannot be unlocked via Ultrasn0w. You’ll need to update your BB to the iPad’s BB as that’s the only option left.

      •  
        Ian3 years, 4 months ago

        I know that, mate. but my question is what happen after I restored the latest stock IPSW firmware via iTunes, is my current BB version 05.16.02 will also get update too. if so which version BB would I get after the update. thank you!

        •  
          Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

          Its the same that your have right now, the one that came with the iOS 4.3.1. 05.16.02.

          •  
            Ian3 years, 4 months ago

            here is the error I have received now “the iphone iphone could not be restored. an unknown error occurred (1015).” and I’ve tried to resore to the stock iOS 4.3.3 still face this same error.

          •  
            Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

            That’s a mistake. You failed to mention to me that you have updated your BB to 06.15.00 since your trying to restore from the stock IPSW files of Apple. You cannot down this road anymore since you have updated your BB to an iPad’s BB. You’ll need to always restore using a Custom IPSW. Error 1015 shows a Baseband mismatch error. To understand how to update your iPhone using a Custom IPSW Restore method, download the latest version of Sn0wbreeze from here http://bit.ly/kOhAeX and follow this guide here http://bit.ly/mbFORU. Make sure you follow it closely and patiently in order to avoid an errors. :)

    Ridge3 years, 4 months ago

    Sorry if i am repeating a question that has already been asked. i have read the page and have trawled through various forums. I have unlocked/Jailbroke my iphone 3gs i.o. 4.3.3 using the latest version of redsn0w followed by ultraSnow 3.2.1 to baseband 6.15.00. the phone was previously locked on the orange network. since the update the phone now works with my vodaphone sim as it reads this as the carrier in the top left corner. i have no signal and cannot make/recieve any calls just keeps saying call/failed. i have tried aeroplane mode, turning on/off gps etc. Do you know how i can make calls?

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

      Ridge, Does your iPhone read the carrier signal of the SIM that’s inserted? Are you sure the SIM is working fine and it doesn’t have any issues? Also what about the coverage area of the network carrier your using? Let me know the details.

      •  
        Ridge3 years, 4 months ago

        Pramod,

        Yes it reads the carrier signal of each sim i have inserted i.e either orange or vodaphone in the top left corner however i do not get a signal for either just the name and no signal bars. Both sims work fine when inserted in another phone. i ran the field test and i get a reading of -113 signal test for both sims. it is not the coverage area either i took the phone out today in a completely different area and still the same results for both. any other ideas be greatly appreciated, im ready for pulling my hair out lol.

        •  
          Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

          LOL. :) Since your iPhone is detecting the carrier signal, its safe to assume that the unlock is running perfect. Since nothings wrong with that, what i would suggest you is to try to Custom restore your iOS, the reason being, I want you to try out the same on a fresh installation of your iOS on your iP3GS. Sometimes, the iOS is the problem. Go ahead and give it a Custom restore only (Else you’ll fall into a Recovery Loop if you do it the stock IPSW way). Use Sn0wbreeze & follow this guide here http://bit.ly/lujZTw to follow a custom restore procedure. Let me know what happens. :)

          •  
            Ridge3 years, 4 months ago

          •  
            Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

            Oops, no worries. Use Pwnage Tool instead. Download the latest version of PT from here http://bit.ly/kOhAeX and follow this guide here http://bit.ly/mO3uXj to get you started with the jailbreak and unlock. :)

          •  
            Ridge3 years, 4 months ago

            once i have built the custom ipsw using phwnage how do i go about getting it on the the phone. because i cant update it through itunes (i dont think) as i had previously used redsn0w to unlock the phone and update the baseband. will itunes work or should i install the custom ipsw through redsn0w

          •  
            Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

            Once you have created the Custom IPSW, you must use iTunes to Restore in a different manner. Redsn0w cannot be used. Folllow this http://bit.ly/mO3uXj. Good Luck. :)

          •  
            Ridge3 years, 4 months ago

            Cancel my last message the itunes restore worked fine with the custom ipsw created through pwnage and im still getting the same result arrrrrrrghhhhhhhhhh lol. the carrier name is displayed but still no signal :(

          •

            For notifications, Try out PushDoctor if SAM is troubling you. You can find the details on how to use it here http://bit.ly/k2vSGU. PushDoctor should get your PushNot up and running in no time.

            Wolverine3 years, 5 months ago

            Uninstall iPusher. Repeat step 15 here http://bit.ly/i7ceCI and then reboot your iPhone. After reboot, install iPusher and sync your iPhone with iTunes.

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 5 months ago

          Download iWipeCache and Remove Background SBSettings toggle. Whenever you put your iPhone in sleep mode or do not want to use it for long time (Before sleeping), run iWipeCache first and then use Remove Background SBSettings toggle.

          •

            ok i got both and will try them, does is also help the battery drain issue

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 5 months ago

            Remove BG apps helps because it removes all apps which run in background which sucks battery.

    Thx for answer me but while i am reading someone tell the gps will not work is that right ?

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 5 months ago

      Yep, upgrading to iPad baseband might lose you GPS functionality. In some cases, people lose GPS accuracy instead of losing full functionality of GPS

      Wolverine3 years, 5 months ago

      If on Windows, use this guide http://bit.ly/grQtBl and if on Mac, make sure you are atleast using Snow Leopard. Also if you have iOS 4.1 SHSH blobs, upgrade to iOS 4.3.2 and use Redsn0w 0.9.6RC14 to upgrade your baseband to iPad baseband. Once updated, restore iOS 4.1 custom IPSW with TinyUmbrella (SHSH Required)

    And one more mike when entering dfu mode try for the last part that is holding the home button try holding it for a longer period..

  •  
    John Brown3 years, 5 months ago

    Yeah encountered the same problem with mike… and tried to solve the problem using wolverine’s method… it worked… but u have to do it like one by one… because when i tried using redsnow to install cydia and downgrade the baseband on my iphone 3gs it got stuck.. so wat u should do is:-

    a) update your iphone through itunes
    b) jailbreak it using redsnow (install cydia only)
    c) use the redsnow tool again to downgrade to ipad baseband
    d) enter cydia and download ultrasnow for unlocking the carriers

    Based on my reading it claimed that the when u downgrade the baseband to ipad baseband your phone might loose its gps capabilities… But for me it works just fine with my 3gs…

    Things needed to do the steps above:-
    1) iPhone2,1_4.3.2_8H7_Restore.ipsw (stock firmware)
    http://bit.ly/hmTtsH
    2) itunes latest (updated)
    3) redsn0w_win_0.9.6rc14 (redsnow tool)
    http://bit.ly/f9BPDI
    4) the ultrasnow tweak is in cydia so after u have completed everything just download it in cydia and install to unlock ur iphone… TQ n have a nice day…

    Hi,
    I have Iphone 3GS with bb 05.16.02. If I upgrade to Ipad baseband,
    Will apple refuse service?

    Thanks,
    Acve

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 5 months ago

      You mean after upgrading to iPad baseband, will you be able to use your iPhone with any carrier? Yes you will be able to unlock your iPhone 3GS on iPad baseband with Ultrasn0w 1.2.1 but you MAY lose your GPS functionality.

      •  
        Acve3 years, 5 months ago

        I upgraded and unlocked. I followd steps given on this website.
        Fortunately, everything went fine
        and GPS WORKS!!!

        question is:

        Will apple know that i am using another carrier and will apple block iphone again?(means i will not able to us phone).

        Thanks,
        Acve

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 5 months ago

          No Apple will never ever block your iPhone in any case! However upgrading to iPad baseband have voided your warranty!

          •  
            Acve3 years, 5 months ago

            OK. Thanks

    Mike3 years, 5 months ago

    Hey Guys I need some help,

    I have an iphone 3gs with 4.3.2 and a baseband of 05.16.02. I tried jail breaking with redsn0w 0.9.6rc14 and iPhone3,1_4.3.2_8H7_Restore. What steps do I need to take for a successful jailbreak because this method is not working. I keep getting to the point where it says “exploiting with limera” and while im putting it into dfu mode the “connect to itunes” picture pops up. Do i need to change my baseband or something? I’m not real savvy on this stuff so bear with me.

    -Mike

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 5 months ago

      Just use Redsn0w 0.9.6RC14 http://bit.ly/f9BPDI to jailbreak your iPhone instead of following the above guide. Redsn0w 0.9.6RC14 will also help you to upgrade your baseband to iPad baseband without needing of downgrading your current firmware or other mess!

    luke3 years, 5 months ago

    hi i have just got a 3gs on baseband 05.15.04 and ios 4.2.1.

    i am not so keen on updating to the ipad baseband, i heard apple can detect it really easily and refuse to service it also how bad is the battery issue?

    how long do you think it will take for either my current baseband to be unlockable or ill be able to revert from ipad band back to an iphone one?

    also is there absolutely no other way of unlocking my phone in its current state? :(

    thanks for you help!!

    luke

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 5 months ago

      No one knows how long it will take by MuscleNerd to devise a downgrade method for iPad baseband. No there is no way to unlock your current baseband and YES Apple WILL know that you have upgraded your baseband for unlocking purpose. This will void your warranty unless there is a downgrade procedure. I have explained everything here http://bit.ly/hgfKdx

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 5 months ago

      Yep! Now you can use Redsn0w 0.9.6RC14 http://bit.ly/f9BPDI to upgrade your baseband to iPad baseband even if you are on iOS 4.3.2. Keep in mind that you MAY lose your GPS functionality in doing so!

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 5 months ago

            Gevey is for iPhone 4 and Ultrasn0w 1.3 will not unlock your baseband :(

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

          You MAY lose GPS. There are no battery drainage issues. People usually confuse battery drainage issue with iPad baseband where as the actual reason of battery drainage is faulty hacktivation which can be solved by using SAM.

    I know Dev-team is doing a great job. kicking iphones ass.

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

    Mick3 years, 6 months ago

    I had a jailbroken and unlocked 3Gs running 3.1.3 for a year with no push notifications. I tried to fix the push thing, and just like a lot of people here, I accidentally updated to 4.2.1 and now have baseband 05.16.02.

    I have all my SHSHs so I managed to revert to 3.1.3 and jailbreak it but the baseband is still 05.16.02. Haven’t been able to use fuzzyband to restore (obviously) and from what I understand my only chance of unlocking it right now is ugrading to the iPad baseband.

    3 questions:

    – is there a possibility 05.16.02 will be unlockable anytime soon?
    – should I update to the iPad baseband will I be able to unlock it under 3.1.3 (jailbroken) or do I have to update to 4.x.x?
    – is there any chance I will be able to return to an iPhone baseband later on? (I know it’s not possible right now).

    Thanks.

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

      1. Nops! I personally do not think Dev-Team NCK method will be valid for iPhone 3GS. But still you can wait for another month.
      2. To upgrade to iPad baseband, first you must upgrade to iOS 4.1 or iOS 4.2.1 and then use Redsn0w 0.9.6b5 http://bit.ly/h9k0Kw. Yes you can downgrade back to iPhone OS 3.1.3 (Requires SHSHs) and unlock with Ultrasn0w.
      3. Forget this option. Dev-Team says that it’ll work on baseband downgrade method after iP4 unlock but i don’t think they’ll get time for that as iPhone 5 will be releasing this June and after iPhone 4 unlock, Dev-Team will get busy in iPhone 5 jailbreak and unlock.

    hi, iphone 3GS, on iOS 4.3.1, bb 06.15.00, ultrasn0w 1.2 and fixer, can get it recognise orange pay as you go sim but have no signal or no bars, when trying to dial get call failed, dooes same when on 4.1 firmware.

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

      Its true that Ultrasn0w fixer is not working for every iPhone 3GS user who is running iOS 4.3.1, but those who downgraded back to iOS 4.2.1 and used Ultrasn0w 1.2 finally made it. Another reason Ultrasn0w fixer fails is that 3GS users with iPad bb forgets to install Ultrasn0w 1.2 before installing the fixer. Also there are 2 fixers from different developers, you must try them both http://bit.ly/hY3x85

        What is your current firmware? Always check “Cydia” option when you use Redsn0w. It jailbreaks and hacktivates (Bypass emergency screen) your iPhone.

        •  
          salman3 years, 6 months ago

    Hi,

    I have iphone 3gs, initially I have IOS 3.1 installed in my iphone.
    Recently I have updated the IOS to 4.3.1, after updating it I noticed the firmware version 05.16.02.

    I tried to update the firmware(Install iPad baseband). It thows an error at Fetching iPad baseband files…. (ERROR : unable to fetch the ipad baseband).

    I am still stuck at single signal carrier and SIM network not detecting.

    Please help me out with a solution to come of this problem.

      Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

      First, you need to make sure you have active internet connection (No proxy enabled). Also if your internet connection is active, you need to wait for atleast 3-5 mins because it took me almost 2 mins on 2MB DSL connection. If for some reason Redsn0w fails to upgrade your baseband, you can always use Sn0wbreeze 2.5.1. Download Sn0wbreeze 2.5.1 from here http://bit.ly/hce8l8 and follow this guide http://bit.ly/ieiJis

        Hi Wolverine,

        Thank you very much for the quick response.
        Now I tried with disabling all the proxy settings. And I am able to download the patch from the server.

        Today I tried with two of possibilities 1.redsn0w and 2.sn0wbreeze
        1) Snowbreeze :
        1) Download sn0wbreeze2.5.1
        2) Downloaded “iPhone2,1_4.3.1_8G4_Restore.ipsw” (selected the new boot , my iphone has new boot rom).
        3) Successfully able to build the ipsw(sn0wbreeze_iPhone 3GS-4.3.1.ipsw).
        4) Moved to DFU mode and tried restoring with itunes(latest).

        *** Unfortunately I am getting an error called *1601*…. Unable to restore the iphone software.. So Sad to unsuccessful again. Following all the stuff mentioned in apple website (reboot the laptop/disconnected iphone/ etc..) Finally unsuccessful again.

        Then I tried with redsn0w too……..

        1) Here iphone got struck while rebooting the phone….
        It was long time waiting ….. so I rebooting the iphone manually….

        Please help me out for this problems to overcome …………. a

          MAdhav3 years, 6 months ago

          Hi,

          I was able to successfully update the baseband of my iphone firmware from 05.16.02 to 06.15.00. using redsn0w.

          But I still am unable to see the SIM cared and network carrier recognition in my iphone 3gs!!! (:

          I am sure updating baseband will not only solve this problem to identify the network and SIM, it require some more debug/bugfix in code to break this source.

          Please let me know if solution available.

          Thanks,

            You are doing everything fine. Just install Ultrasn0w Fixer after installing Ultrasn0w 1.2

            Wolverine,

            I did installed Ultrasn0w Fixer after installing Ultrasn0w 1.2 But carrier never detected. It always doesn’t show up the signal. (It shows just service unavailable)…

            Later I tried experimented more on this. I thought of reverting back the original baseband with itunes. Unfortunately I tried restored my phone with itunes, while restoring the framework it thrown an error “1401”.

            There after iphone rebooted and always stalled at itunes screen.

            Again I tried installing the ios(ipsw) using redsn0w, it failed at reboot screen, iphone will be stuck at updating Rom. And never comes back.

            Please help me out how can come out with this.

            I knew at present there is *NO* solution to come back to previous base band, But I badly need to use this phone for regular calls.

            Please help me out if any solution available.

            Also I got this phone from UK, and I am using this phone in India.
            Is there a way to return/find a solution from Apple?

            Please tell me at least one solution.

            _Madhav

            The best solution is to downgrade to iOS 4.1 (Recommended) or iOS 4.2.1 and install Ultrasn0w 1.2 (No fixer required). This require you to have SHSH blobs for iOS 4.1 or iOS 4.2.1. Now if you do not have SHSH blobs, restore iOS 4.3.1 custom IPSW (Preferably made with PwnageTool). Once your custom IPSW has been successfully restored and your iPhone gets in recovery mode, run Redsn0w over it. I am not sure why you tried to downgrade baseband when you already know that downgrading firmware do not downgrade baseband. Lastly when your iPhone is (atleast) functional, wait for the official Ultrasn0w fixer by Dev-Team. No, there is no way to get a refund for this. Forget about it.

            Wolverine,

            First I thank very much for the dev team and for you for providing the information.

            Finally I have made ios signal/carrier ….. *** SUCCESSFUL ***.
            Jailbreak Breaking the ios 4.3.1, Baseband update from 05.16.02 to 06.15.00.

            I followed the procedure once again, it was succeeded now.

            Thanks again.
            _Madhav

            Thanks

    I have an iPhone 3GS running 4.3.1 with baseband 05.16.02.

    I have no means of downgrading to 4.2.1 as I have no shsh files.

    I am jailbreaking with redsn0w on a mac and I have two questions:

    Will I get the same 1002 error if try to I change the baseband to ipad with my current configuration, or is this a Sn0wbreeze issue only?

    if I change to ipad baseband, and the error occurs, will my iPhone be unusable or will I still be able to jailbreak as an ipad or something?

    Thanks,
    Andy

      1. Its the Sn0wbreeze issue only!
      2. No, you will never brick your iPhone. You can always try to upgrade your bb to iPad bb. Yes if it upgraded to iPad bb, you can still jailbreak it by restoring iOS 4.3.1 custom IPSWs only.

      •  
        Andy3 years, 6 months ago

        Thank you!
        Is there any other option to get around the 05.16.02 issue? with my current config?

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

          You can try to use Redsn0w 0.9.6b5 to upgrade to iPad baseband. See if it works or not!

          •  
            Andy3 years, 6 months ago

            ok. I was able to update to the ipad bb 06.15.00. and now I am still not able to unlock using ultraSn0w. Any ideas why?

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

            What is your current firmware? If you are on iOS 4.3.1, you need to install unofficial Ultrasn0w Fix from PushFix repo.

          •  
            Andy3 years, 6 months ago

            I figured it out… I had to use the “Ultrasn0w Fixer for 4.3.1” found at: http://djayb6.com
            now I am good to go :)

    yes i have updated to 4.3 (which now i know is a big mistake) and firmware is 5.16.02

    and i dont have shsh blobs :s
    please tell me how i can recover it or even downgrade my iPhone 3gs to 4.2 so that i can use my sim

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

      I am sorry AJ but without SHSH blobs, it is impossible to downgrade. To confirm if you have SHSH blobs or not, download TinyUmbrella from here http://bit.ly/gDFJ0K and click on Save SHSH button.

        This solution doesn’t work now… Our problem is at advanced stage :). So need a solution for changing the base band.

    Hey I have a 4.3.1 iPhone 3Gs, 05:16:02 I wanted to unlock but dont know how. ‘ve walked the time at various sites but no solution arrangement. Could you give some tips?

    Thanks.

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

      Use the above guide, i wrote it for the same purpose. Upgrade to iPad baseband and then you can unlock it with Ultrasn0w. You will lose your GPS functionality though.

      •  
        tan3 years, 6 months ago

        Is losing the GPS bad?

        •  
          tan3 years, 6 months ago

          And it will also have battery issues right? and this is what you said “this is why I would never recommend the ipad baseband on 3GS. I also got the battery drain issues. Battery holds with 3G activated 5-9h and the temperature of the phone increases dangerously. No Pushfix etc. did help.”

          •  
            Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

            Nops! LinKinParKeR said that. SAM solves all PushFix and battery drainage issues on all iPhone 3GS running iPad bb.

        •  
          Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

          Depends on how extensively you use apps which require GPS!

            HI All,

            I haven’t really tried GPS in it. But battery drain issue is exist in currently. I will workout with SAM solutions and let you know.

    HI,
    i have an iphone 3gs and recently i updated my iphone IOS to 4.3 with ultrasn0w..all went well but when i installed my sim, the searching for network goes for 15 minutes and later it says no service…my firmware is 5.16.1

    Could you please help with this?
    and i updated my iphone to ipad baseband

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

      You mean you have iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.3 with current baseband 06.15.00? Also do you have SHSH blobs of iOS 4.2.1?

    •  
      Madhav3 years, 6 months ago

      Same problem here…. Please help us…..

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

      @AJ: Sn0wbreeze 2.5.1 has been released. Now you can update to iPad bb on iOS 4.3.1 (Without downgrading to iOS 4.2.1). Download it from here http://bit.ly/hce8l8 and follow this guide http://bit.ly/ieiJis

  •  
    LinKinParKeR3 years, 6 months ago

    “Keep in mind that upgrading to iPad baseband may cause you to lose your GPS functionality and downgrading iPad baseband back to 05.16.01 or 05.16.02 is also not possible for now.”

    and this is why I would never recommend the ipad baseband on 3GS. I also got the battery drain issues. Battery holds with 3G activated 5-9h and the temperature of the phone increases dangerously. No Pushfix etc. did help.
    And Dev-Team etc. are not working on any solution right now :P

    If anyone got some solution(s) for this i would be grateful

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 6 months ago

      SAM solves all PushFix and battery drainage issues. Also, the battery drainage issues is not bcz of iPad bb, its because of the wrong (Inefficient) hacktivation method used by Dev-Team in Redsn0w 0.9.6b5. Sherif Hashim confirmed this fact on Twitter. Cheers!

          By Stand-By mode, did you mean Locking your iPhone or something else? What happens when you press the Power button of your iPhone once? Does it lock?
