How to downgrade iphone 3gs ios 6.1 baseband 5.16.08 to 5.13.04 for unlocking

Accidentally updated to iOS 6.1 and found out your iPhone 3GS is locked or stuck in recovery mode? This is a proven working solution. Be warned though, it may take you some time if you’re new to jailbreaking.

However, it’s still possible to unlock your iPhone by updating the baseband to 6.15.00 and then downgrading to 5.13.04.

  • Baseband version 5.13.04 allows you to unlock your iPhone 3GS with ultrasn0w.
  • Baseband 6.15.00 is an iPad baseband which can break your GPS.
  • In order to downgrade to 5.13.04, you must update it to 6.15.00 first. Unfortunately, there’s no direct way of downgrading it to 5.13.04.
  • If you’re stuck in recovery mode, most likely you already have baseband 6.15.00 installed and iTunes won’t complete the restore.

 

Part 1: Downgrade to iOS 4.1

1. Backup your contacts, photos, apps etc. (probably not possible at this stage) Remove your SIM card.

2. Download iOS 4.1 firmware for iPhone 3GS or from here.

3. Download redsn0w 0.9.8rc18 for Windows or Mac.

4. Download latest version of TinyUmbrella from here.

5. Remove iTunes and install iTunes 10.4.1 for Windows (32-bit) or Mac.

6. Put your iPhone into DFU mode. See YouTube video here.

7. Launch iTunes, connect your iPhone, hold down the SHIFT for Windows or Option for Mac while you click the RESTORE button in iTunes and select the iOS 4.1 firmware file you have just downloaded. If you get an iTunes error 3194, read here on how to fix it.

8. The restore will end with error 1015 and recovery loop on the iPhone, this can be resolved using the “Exit Recovery” button in TinyUmbrella.

Part 2: Installing iPad baseband 6.15.00

9. Start redsn0w 0.9.6rc18.

10. Browse for the iOS 4.1 firmware you just downloaded.

11. Select ‘Install Cydia’ and ‘Install iPad Baseband’. Warning: installing iPad baseband will break your GPSif you have the new 3GS made after week 28 of 2011, it does not support the iPad baseband. We will downgrade to 5.13.04 later for the GPS fix.

12. Follow on screen instructions to put your device into DFU mode to begin the jailbreak.

13. When the process is done, you will find that your iPhone is now jailbroken on iOS 4.1 with iPad baseband 6.15.00. To make sure you can always go back to iOS 4.1, launch Cydia and select ‘Make my life easier.’

14. Now download redsn0w 0.9.14b2 that can downgrade iPad baseband to 5.13.04 for Windows or Mac.

15. Launch redsn0w. Go to Extras > Select IPSW button in redsn0w to point to the original firmware you downloaded in Step 2.

16. Do a controlled shutdown of your iPhone (“slide to power off”).

17. Return to the first screen and click ‘Jailbreak’. Check the ‘Downgrade from iPad baseband’ checkbox, uncheck Cydia and click Next.

18. Redsn0w will start doing the downgrade and you will see ‘Flashing Baseband’ screen on your iPhone with the Pawnapple icon. DO NOT INTERRUPT your iPhone while baseband flashing is in progress.

19. When done, your iPhone will reboot itself and you will now have iOS 4.1 with baseband 5.13.04 that can be unlocked with ultrasn0w.

20. You may want to update to iOS 5.1.1 which has untethered jailbreak and can also be unlocked with ultrasn0w 1.2.7. Use this tutorial here (it’s for baseband 6.15.00 but will work for any baseband). You can install iOS 5.1.1 only if you have the SHSH saved on Cydia or locally.

If you’re happy with iOS 4.1 and would like to unlock it, read on…

Part 4: Unlock with ultrasn0w

21. Launch Cydia from Springboard (home menu).

22. Search for ultrasn0w on Packages in Cydia. If you cannot find it, add new sources by typing ultrasn0w repo:

repo666.ultrasn0w.com (with zero, not o).

23. Install Ultrasnow 1.2.7 1.2.8

24. Reboot your iPhone.

25. Turn off 3G and insert your SIM card. It should pick up your mobile signal.

Jailbreak: why iOS 6.1.3 on iPhone 5 came up short and why Apple wanted it to

iphone5prev

Anyhow jailbreakers will end up back in this scenario again when 7.0 arrives, and again with 7.1 after that. While the feline and rodent diversion between Apple and jailbreakers typically winds up with the hackers getting their direction, now may be a great time for the jailbreaking group to ask itself for what reason its arrived on Apple’s “foes record” and what it may have the capacity to do regarding getting Apple to back up from its current rationality of making new iOS overhauls as troublesome to jailbreak as could be expected under the circumstances.
