    I tried to downgrade my 3GS baseband to use ultrasn0w and unlock it. it was on 6.1, so i followed the tutorial using 6.0, but then it got an error towards the end, i rebooted then it was in a constant recovery loop (connect to itunes) so i tried again, failed. tried 5.1.1, failed, so i tried recovering through itunes, but i kept getting the 3194 error (ive deleted the host line) still get the 3194 error, tried installing 6.0 with redsn0w upgrading the baseband to see if thats helped, i got a "missing keys.plist" i tried doing the fix for that but i just get the "error, please put phone into normal mode"

    have i busted it and its unrecoverable?

    PC or Mac? Try recovering through iTunes from a different computer.

    You are not suppose to update to the iPad baseband if you have the new bootrom 3GS

    I'm not sure what the exact problems are at the top of my head but if I do remember correctly, flashing the iPad baseband on the new bootrom 3GS messes something up

    Edit: I'm not sure if you made it clear or not, but have you tried to restore to 6.1.3? (Or any other firmware that you have the shsh blob for)

    is there anyway to unbrick it from the upgraded flash?

    and yes ive tried to restore it to 6.1.3 but itunes keeps giving me 3194 error, even after ive deleted the line in Host file, and i currently done have access to another pc

    New bottom is not the determining factor. Many new bottom 3GS can safely be flashed.
    Determining factor is date of manufacture, must not be after week 27 of 2001

    managed to fix the issue.

    I downloaded ifaith, attached the blobs to iso 5.1.1 and shift+restore through itunes, without getting the error

    thank god, thanks for the help :)
