    Upgrade iphone4 4.01 with tinyumbrella to 4.1 and 01.59.00 baseband are preserve, but when I try to restore it again with the same 4.1 ipsw without tinyumbrella, I cannot upgrade the baseband to 02.10.04 , strange.
    This happen last Fri before the limera1n.

    Edit: correction on the baseband version #

    I'm confused. 1.59.00 is an iPhone 4 baseband version while 5.14.02 is a 3g/3gs baseband version. 2.10.04 is the iPhone 4 baseband on firmware 4.1.

    Second, why would you ever want to upgrade the baseband? Having an unlockable baseband will rase resell value and lets you use other carriers if you are traveling. Upgrading the baseband won't speed things up, fix bugs, or introduce new features. The new baseband is solely to block ultrasn0w.

    I just want to test out tinyumbrella before I take the iphone4 back to apple store for an exchange, but after sucessfully upgrade to 4.1 with the preserve baseband 01.59.00 , I want to put it back to ios 4.1 with the correct baseband 2.10.04.
    Dunno, maybe a bug in tinyumbrella.

    i don't think semaphore (author of TU, aka @notcom) would consider this a bug :D

    Anyway, if you're really set on upgrading baseband why don't you try downgrading to ios 4.0.1 and then doing a non-TU 4.1 restore? do you have shsh's for this?

    Alternatively, you could say (at the apple store) "yeah i remember i got an error at some point, durrrrrr" and play dumb about the baseband version (if it even comes up). I doubt they could tell or prove you're lying (or care?).

    Also, if you have 4.0.1 shsh's or 4.0.2 you could put it on that and and the old baseband would no longer be suspect...


    And remember, the less info the better. You don't need to spill out the device's life story for the "geniuses"

    Not sure if this helps, but my experience has been that when I close Tiny Umbrella, it automatically changes my hosts file to redirect SHSH requests to the Cydia server. Presumably, this would have the same effect as using TU. Have you checked your hosts file to see if it redirects traffic destined for gs.apple.com?

    Thanks for all the input, I already exchange my ip4.

    Untrue. Apple's sole purpose for releasing baseband upgrade is not to block Ultrasn0w, it's primarily to give better reception, less dropped calls, work better in conjunction with whatever AT&T network upgrades are taking place, get better signal using less power, etc. Blocking Ultrasn0w/locking the phone to a single carrier is secondary to these things.

    LOL I said this so many times, People thinks that Apple whole engineering team is working just to Block the small % of people that Jailbreak and they expend all the testing time and R&D just to mess up with a few :rolleyes:

    Have there been any reports of what changes were made in the 02.10.04 baseband and whether or not people using it are noticing better reception?

    As for why I'm interested, I have no use for the unlock since I use AT&T and I currently am experiencing dropped calls. The only reason I have for keeping 1.59 is that I do not want to hurt my chances of being able to jailbreak in the future.

    Sorry, I don't have those details. Apple doesn't give release notes for baseband updates, either, so it's anyone's guess.

    Remember, baseband updates will only hurt your chances of being able to unlock, they won't have any effect on your ability to jailbreak.
