    Hello,

    I have a locked iPhone 3gs. Its not AT&T

    My baseband is 05.13.04
    My iOS version is 6.0.1
    Its a new BR

    I don't think I can unlock the version 6.0.1 so I have decided to downgrade it.
    I just found the only shsh blobs saved for the current phone are for the versions 5.0.1 and 4.1.
    So I tried stitching 5.0.1 IPSW and 5.0.1 SHSH and tried restoring it with iTunes in pwned DFU mode. It threw and error 1600 which means its not in pwned DFU even though it is in it.

    Can anyone please help me in fixing it?

    Why dont you just buy an imei unlock for it for $2-3 on ebay and be done with it?
    It will be forever unlocked and you dont have to worry about basebands, shsh blobs or anything like that.

    Well then, at least you have an unlockable baseband. To unlock, first you would need to jailbreak. The jailbreak will be a tethered one because your 3GS has the new bootrom.
