Earlier this week a new version of redsn0w was released to improve the iPad baseband downgrade process. It now covers more NOR chips and is likely to downgrade all iPhones which were not supported earlier.
The downgrade process has also been made easier and more user friendly.
Here’s what the dev-team has to say:
Happy 4th of July! Today’s release of redsn0w 0.9.14b2 improves the iPad baseband downgrade and should cover anyone who couldn’t downgrade with 0.9.14b1. This version covers 3 different types of NOR chips in the iPhone 3G and 3GS (the earlier version covered only the most prevalent NOR chip). We’ve also simplified the process and added logging to help diagnose any remaining stubborn iPhones.
To downgrade you iPhone 3G/3GS simply follow these easy steps :
1. Download and run the latest version of redsn0w (0.9.14b2) for windows/mac.
2. Connect you device in normal mode and click on Jailbreak. Press Next.
3. Ignore the DFU instructions, if they appear. Let redsn0w identify the model and baseband version.
4. Choose the Downgrade from iPad baseband option and press Next.
5. Shut down your device normally and now put your device in DFU Mode.
Now, follow the basic instructions and you are done!
NOTE : iPhone 3Gs user please go through the warning in our previous post if you wish to update your 3G or 3GS to 06.15.00 for downgrading to 05.13.04 – Downgrade iPad BB
* Those who wish to unlock their device may download ultrasn0w from Cydia. Please note that unlocking is an illegal process and should be avoided.
I hope this post helped you, keep following for more updates!
