    hello folks,
    it's been a long time since i posted around here. so i was wondering if the iPad baseband on the 3gs can be undoable yet?

    i really like to get this thing back to it's normal self and update through iTunes again.

    thanks all

    No, there were a bunch of attempts to downgrade the baseband on the 3G and 3GS with the ipad bb but all ended up messing up the baseband permanently.
    So I think they gave up on it.

    Yep, all attempts resulted in a fried baseband chip which kills the cellular radio

    That sucks:(
    Do you see them coming up with anything in the future or will probably give up and move on to work on the newer iphone models and leave the 3G and 3GS behind?

    Honestly, with the new phones coming out (iPhone5 this year), the 3GS will be 4 generations old. I just don't see it being fixed (assuming it is even possible)

    Basebands can only be upgraded. They can't be downgraded, or replaced.

    As stated, this cannot be done to remove the iPad baseband. As of now, just as the warnings said, it is forever.

    Certain shops will replace the baseband chip for you, but they also have a possibility of destroying the logic board if done incorrectly.


    Ooh yeah I know, forgot to mention if he just wanted to update to 5.1 he could still do it by using a custom ipsw.

    Replacing the baseband processor carries its own set of issues. UDID is partly based on the IMEI and Mac addresses; various hardware IDa are dependent in unique baseband data too. Anything that depends on these IDs (like official unlocks) will not function properly.

    Depending if you have an old or new bootrom 3GS then yes it can. Sort of. You have to upgrade to the iPad baseband first and then downgrade the baseband. But your 3GS MUST be capable of upgrading to the iPad baseband. You need to triple check before you do anything with the baseband because if you mess up and try to put the iPad baseband on a 3GS that can't support it, you can fry your radio chip and effectively turn your iPhone into an iPod. Read the blog post regarding the baseband downgrade process on the dev teams's website.

    Exactly what bumpy said.
    Post the first 5 digits of your serial.

    Do not have the 3GS - it is the iPhone 3G.

    To clarify - update the iPhone 3G baseband to the iPad baseband and then downgrade using redsn0w and unlock using ultrasn0w?
