    No need to start 2 threads on the same subject

    Absinthe won't work on 6.1.3

    First you'll need to tether Jailbreak the phone with redns0w, during the jailbreak process your phone will be activated as well so you can complete the setup process (selecting language, country etc)

    After that we'll take it from there

    you will also need to download iOS 6.0 ipsw for the 3GS model that you have and go to extras -> select ipsw after you have ran redsn0w

    yes i did all that. what im stuck on when do i do just boot? Ive got as far as the bundles and the pineapple but after that booted i cant get on wifi and firmware is not recognized. Do i do just boot and go in the turn off mode 10 secs? Im just not sure when to do this so i can use wifi.

    What's the baseband of the 3GS? 6.15.00?

    You have to do the "just boot" every time you start up the device since its a tethered jailbreak

    Go to settings -> general -> about -> modem firmware

    Is that 6.15.00? If yes, downgrade the iPad baseband using redsn0w

    Try and do a "restore" to 6.1.3 and then jailbreak. It's generally not a good idea to "update" if you're jailbroken

    In other words you tried to install the iPad bb on an incompatible 3GS and you fried all it's radios.
    Sorry for the bad news but there's nothing you can do to reverse that.
    Next time be more careful and ask questions before you attempt anything you're not familiar.
    If you have posted the first 5 digits of your serial we would have told you if it's safe or not to flash the baseband.

    What are the first 5 digits of serial number of the phone? Only phones made before week 27 of 2011 can upgrade to the ipad BB

    Serial number is 84052. running 6.1.3 dont see firmware yet no wifi. But im on. if i got a plan on this (service) would it work? How can i get wifi? Should i reset erase all data and settings and try again? Keeps rebooting to apple logo then its on. And keeps saying searching as before would usually say no service which is better

    If you are jailbroken you can't do a erase all content and aettings.

    You have no wifi because you BB needs to be reflashed

    Your 3gs is from week 52 2010, you can flash the ipad bb on that 1 without problems:

    use this tutorial, also use the older redan0w version mentioned in the tutorial

    If this does not work try again.

    If your device is jailbroken, this may result in you having to restore to current firmware (unless you have saved complete iOS6 SHSH)

    Flashing the BB is different than flashing a firmware! Make sure you only select downgrade BB during the BB reflash with redsn0w

    Just to confirm, which firmware are you now on?

    Don't rush and take 1 step at a time

    Absinthe 2.0.4

    Redsn0w is not updated for 6.x you need to make it think you are on 6.0

    Download the 6.0 IPSW from here:

    http://m.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=750
    Now first go in to redsn0w extras/select IPWS and select the 6.0 IPSW
    no go back to main menu and hit jailbreak

    Select the install ipad BB

    after it has succesfully installed(verify on device) repeat the process but now select the diwngrade option, that will install the 05.13.04 BB
