    so starting from a never unlocked/jailbroken 3gs with firmware 4.3.5 and baseband 5.16.02,

    the order to do things in is (on a mac)

    1. use redsnow and the STOCK 5.0.1 firmware to make a custom IPSW

    2. use itunes and restore using the custom IPSW

    (like the iClarified tutorial here

    3. go back to redsnow and select "Jailbreak and install Cydia"

    (like the iClarified tutorial here

    4. This is where I'm "stuck" (i haven't touched my phone, but i'm wanting to make sure i have all the right steps before i back myself in a corner).

    to UNLOCK the phone, i should use ultrasnow, BUT it seems like ultrasnow version 1.2.4 is NOT compatible with baseband 5.16.02. (

    Is there a way to unlock the phone using the original baseband from my iOS 4.3.5 that i've preserved using redsnow?
