    I have a 3GS old bootrom that's running the 06.15.00 baseband. I have now factory unlocked this phone thanks to AT&T's new policy, so I would like to restore the phone to factory settings.

    However, it seems that I can't do the normal restore anymore, and I have to use custom firmwares. But, custom firmwares strip out the baseband when updating.

    Am I forever stuck on 06.15.00?

    I have bootloader 06.04 on iOS 4.3.3, so FuzzyBand doesn't seem to work.

    You cannot, you're stuck with the ipad baseband.
    Fuzzyband is only for the iphone 3G, not 3GS.

    And FuzzyBand only works on about 10% of the original, 1st issue 3G devices.
    Plus, I believe it is not compatible with iOS5 firmware

    Bummer, thanks. Couldn't find any posts on the Internet about this newer than about October 2011, but I kind of figured the lack of posts meant the status-quo was still true.

    Oh well, I guess it's factory unlocked in case it is ever possible to update the baseband normally.

    I guess MuscleNerd's tweet:

    @Kamiela2010 the downgrade potential from 06.15 remains (in my mind) 99% doable, but other things always seem to preempt working on it

    never got worked on... tweeted April 2011.

    Yes, hopefully we will see something in the future.
    There's many people stuck with the ipad baseband. A downgrade would be nice.

    Actually they did try it ... Unsuccessfully.
    All attempts so far (that I am aware of) resulted in fried cellular radio. :(
