    Jailbreaking is easy, use absinthe 2.

    To use it abroad you need is an unlock, on your current BaseBand of 5.16.05 that is not possible, there is a workaround but that will only work on older 3GS's.

    For that you need to upgrade the BB to the iPad BB 06.15.0 first and than dowgrade the BB to 5.13.04 using redsn0w.

    Try reading up on it, use google and iclarified.com

    Explaining what you did before it broke would help.

    Before you try and install the iPad baseband, post your serial number if this is a newer 3GS
