      Hey Alex,

      Unfortunately, there is currently no way to downgrade the baseband from 02.30.03 to 02.28.00.

      You will need to wait for the Dev team to unlock baseband 02.30.03 or magically figure out a way to downgrade the baseband.

      Hello, I have a brand new iPhone locked to Fido which has never been activated so it probably does not have Baseband 2.30.03. I have never connected this iPhone to iTunes. Can someone give me specific instructions on how I should activate it so that the baseband stays preserved and I can run yellowsn0w to unlock it. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      turbo sim is that the best way to unlock the 3G iphone, better then software unlock ????

      Turbo sims generally suck and are completely unrelliable so how you can recommend one over a software unlock beggars belief?

      hey guys! as many as you i'm super bummed that i can't use my iphone - after upgrading without reading the WARNINGS.

      i found this website that claims to have a software (for 29.99) that can unlock any iphone version including 2.2.1. has anyone used this type of software... i've been iphone-less for about 4weeks and i'm about to go crazy. desperation is starting to kick in, and just might try this sites product.

      any advice before i give it a shot???

      hi j valdes

      i bought software from a site for 19.99 when 2.2 first came out. the software provided only jailbroke the firmware for 3g iphone and the unlock software was for iphone 2g. i think its a scam.

      i've currently got 2.2.1 and im, using a turbosim until trhe dev team can unlock 2.2.1.

      hopefully they will do it soon.

      thanks for the reply Ricky!

      i had a turbosim card and it was so useless! sometimes it would work and sometimes i had no reception what so ever. so right now i'm back to my old dash tmobile phone. which feels so weird after having the iphone for so long.

      Hey guys i just found a way to downgrade the new 2.2.1 firmware. I just did. I had to restore my phone last night and by mistake the new firmware was installed in my jail broken 3g. and this is what I did.
      download an older version of the firmware (2.0.1) for example, you also need the last version of quickpwn. once you have this open itunes and open quickpwn, and on itunes while hitting "Shift" click restore and look for the older firmware you downloaded; and while itunes is getting the info to get stared go to Quickpwn and run it with the same firmware you downloaded, BOTH PROGRAMS HAVE TO BE RUNNING AT THE SAME TIME. after this quickpwn is going to procced to jailbrake.

      I completely and totally screwed up my iPhone - can't even downgrade it to 2.2. or restore the 2.2.1 firmware with 02.28.00 baseband. So I'm stuck with the 02.30.03 baseband. Ew.

      So is there any news if the Dev Team is working on updating YellowSn0w so it will work with firmware 2.2.1, baseband 2.30.03.?

      Please help!

      I upgraded and unlocked my iPhone 2g to firmware 2.2.1. Now everything works fine but the rightone is very low and during any conversation I can't hear the other side due to low volume . I tried the iclarified source in the installer for volume booster application but it doesn't show in the installer. Can any one give me a alternative way or help me fix it.

      ****...im confused
      that means i cant unlock my iphone??

    • iPhoneHacksiPhoneHacks Posts: 2,315

      iPhone firmware 2.2.1 update consists of the OS update as well as a modem firmware update (02.30.03).

      Dev Team's software method to unlock iPhone 3G works only with modem firmware 02.28.00 which was bundled with iPhone firmware 2.2.

      So if you want to unlock your iPhone 3G, you should preserve the baseband using PwnageTool which is only available for Macs.

      If you have already upgraded to modem firmware 02.30.03 then currently there is no way to unlock your iPhone 3G.

      This isn't applicable to 1st gen iPhone, you can use the latest tools to unlock it.

      hahahaha.. i just sold yesterday my iphone with 2.2.1 firmware, and 2.30.03 baseband... I have a friend who has this super kung fu software (i forgot what that $hit called) to unlock the phone. I Jailbroken the phone (using that software), worked fine (i can call home), installed those free apps i found over **** sites, attempted to unlock the phone... seems to worked fine...rebooted again the phone...and BAM !!!

      i got my self an i-phone touch..!... it worried me sick...

      then..I grab me a shirt, went to the mall and sold the phone/touch to some unsuspecting nerd... told the nerd that it got the latest cydia apps and all those BS sales pitch.. the nerd paid up front...

      Got home... called my friend... and yelled at him..!

      "you *#@*$* idiot..." i almost got killed by your super kung fu software...

      he answered back... "dude... did'nt i told you to read the fine print..." it said.... APPLE OWNS YOUR A$$..AND YOU'LL NEVER GET AWAY WITH IT $HIT.."

      HAHAHAHAHA.. it really happened.... Now i use my old phone... an ericsson... hehehehehehe
