    Hello, I have attempted to Jailbreak my iphone 3gs

    But I mistakenly put the ipad baseband on my phone 5.0.1 OS

    My iphone 3gs is not compatible with the baseband I put on mistakenly

    Obviously now my phone will not work correctly nor will it work at all... I turn it on get the apple logo and then plug into itunes... After this my phone just turns itself off..

    I am not writing here to show off my problem I am hoping for a clear solution explained easy.. I am not good with phone jailbreaking etc.. This is not the type of thing I follow up on... Although if it is a hard job to do then for what ever help I get I will try and keep in contact with that person, and Pay for said help, It won't be much money of course I am only a student

    Although I will try to donate/give as much as I can,

    Thank you for posting

    I am sorry if this has already a fix and I have not noticed it.

    First find out if your 3Gs is new or old bootrom. (google helps :p)
    puttin 6.15 on a 3Gs new bootrom kills it. the BaseBand is F'd up. it isnt completely bricked, but its pretty much useless

    if its old bootrom, you should try and hold home + power for 10 seconds to see if it boots up fine, if not...
    use pwnagetool/sn0wbreeze to make a custom IPSW that you will need to restore to in iTunes

    You pretty much fried the radios.
    Nothing u can do now to fix it besides bringing it to Apple and play dumb.

    1. Find out whether your phone is made after week 35 in 2011 by looking at the 3rd (year), 4th & 5th (week) digit of it serial number. If it is prior to to that then,

    2. Jailbreak it, then install ultraslow to unlock it. By doing so, you can still use it with AT&T sim. This is the only way to work around your issue. without installing ultrasn0w, your phone will not recognize your AT&T sim.

    As report continue to come forth, some 3GS iPhone as early as week 28 are reported as having their cellular radios killed by installing the iPad baseband.

    Many 3GS phones are new bootrom but were manufactured before the 28th week of 2011. They can handle the iPad baseband.

    Those made week 28 or later cannot

    Only the 1st five characters of the serial number are important.

    First 5 digit is 84949, is that 2009 week 49?

    And I should be able to install iPad BB?
