    My iPhone 4 is currently on 5.0.1 with the original modem firmware 01.59.00. I need this for the unlock, out of the States and without the original AT&T sim card.

    Is it possible to upgrade to 5.1.1 with a custom ipsw as per iClarified tutorial(redsnow) and than jailbreak with absinthe 2.0.2 and unlock?

    Thank you!

    you can upgrade to 5.1.1 while preserving BB with redsn0w.

    only thing is that Ultrasn0w is not updated yet, could be that you have the 1 bar cosmetic issue.

    I was trying to avoid using redsn0w for jailbreak, didn't want a tethered one. I guess I'll wait and look for options.

    Thank you guys!

    You can upgrade to 5.1.1 using a NO_BB IPSW created using Redsn0w. After that, you can Jailbreak using Absinthe and then install Ultrasn0w.

    ultrasn0w 1.2.5 is not compatible with 5.1.1 yet.
    you will have to download ultrasn0w fixer first from cydia in order for your phone to get any service.

    Any updates in this?
    Maybe a link to the correct vers, since its been a while now?
    I also got the Iph4 5.01 bb 01.59, last time i used Redsnow, but my experience is that the best jb solution changes for each update in firmware...

    If you expect to use Ultrasn0w, your only option on an iPhone4 is to keep 1.59.xx

    Keeping or preserving baseband is only done for purposes of a software unlock.
    For an iPhone4, the only software unlock tool that is applicable is Ultrasn0w.
    And it only unlocks 1.59.xx baseband.

    My answer was spot-on and I though it was worded accurately. :)

    Yes, i'd agree you have forgotten
    And if you read my responses, Ultrasn0w is the tool that provides a software unlock.
    It does not make any changes to firmware or software.
    For that one uses a combination of iTunes and Redsn0w

    Good luck, I'm out of this thread.
