    Alright guys, here is my story

    I wanted to update my iPhone 4 to ios5 but I was using gevey sim, so i needed to preserve my baseband in order to get gevey work on iOS5. I did my no bb ispw with redsnow and when i tried to restore i got many many errors and i was trying to find the solution for many many hours, but at least i stuck on super recovery mode that nothing worked to get out of it. Finally, i gave up and let iTunes officially update my iPhone to ios5 - success, then using tiny umbrella i tried to downgrade to 4.3.3 - success, right straight away i tried again to update to ios5 with preserving my bb and.. - success! Unfortunatelly gevey sim didn't work, so i got really mad that i lost so much time and did nothing, so i downgraded it to 4.3.3 again - success, but gevey sim still didn't work and then i saw that I'm running ios5 baseband - 04.11.08, yes i found a problem why my gevey doesn't work but how to fix it?

    P.s. Every time I was/am trying to downgrade/restore to 4.3.3 i get iTunes error (1) at the end of restore, but i googled it that when it happens i need to jailbreak it and bypass that error. Yes, that way works, but i was thinking if i am missing the last part of restore, i mean baseband restore/downgrade? as, if i am right, the title on iTunes status bar saying "restoring baseband" is at the end of the whole procces, anyway i can't find the way how to avoid getting that error, so please, any ideas?

    The reason Gevey did not work because your baseband has been upgrade it to 04.11 which is OS5 baseband. So, even you have successfully downgraded your phone to 4.3.3, your baseband can't downgrade and therefore, Gevey did not work.

    You mean there is no way to downgrade the baseband?

    You are correct. There is no way to downgrade baseband. Otherwise, we all have downgrade our Iphone 4 to 01.59 baseband where we can unlock it with ultrasn0w. :D

    I think you can put your phone on your local Craigslist and i am sure there will be buyer for it.

    Good luck!

    Oops. If that the case, I don't think you can sell it at all in your local market. However, you can sell in on Ebay. :D

    As for this phone in the US, it worth from $250 to $350 in my local Craigslist depending on its condition.
