MuscleNerd says “all pieces are there” for 06.15 baseband downgrade

By , Jun 10, 2012

Last year, the Dev Team announced that iPhone 3G/3GS owners unlocked on baseband 06.15.00 would likely be stuck there forever, leaving them to deal with GPS bugs and other issues.

But that may not be the case, as it appears that hackers have been working on a fix. Unlocking expert MuscleNerd has just announced that a baseband downgrade is on the horizon…

MuscleNerd tweeted:

“Made great progress yesterday on downgrade from BB 06.15 (for 3G/3GS owners who got officially unlocked). All the pieces are there :)”

This is good news, as most folks weren’t aware that a solution was being worked on. And although there’s no ETA for a release yet, the words “all the pieces are there” certainly sound promising.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on this as more information becomes available, so stay tuned.

Any 3G/3GS owners out there excited for a baseband downgrade?

      Putting the iPad BB on i4 devices is dangerous because of the updated chipset.
      90% certain this could brick your radio

      please take note omg

    Bunch of friends and family upgraded the iOS and they loss their unlock because the baseband got upgraded as well. Good to know that there is a light a the end of the tunnel.

    snowbreeze sucks always gives error use ifaith way better gives no error

  • http://twitter.com/XIPRELAY David

    This is excellent news, especially if you are moving away from a suburban area where Wi-Fi is sparse and when you previously relied on Wi-Fi for location “beacons”.

    Excellent news for many people.

    But I must admit that no one would ever work on this, specially after so many years.

  • usotsuki

    latest update is that “MuscleNerd had successfully downgraded the first iPhone 3GS with iPad baseband 6.15.00 to 5.13.04″ which is ulockable thru ultrasnow, so its basically not only for those 3GS that were officially unlocked by AT&T.

  • foysyl

    i believe ultrasnow , snowbreeze as wel as redsnow team have a unlock solution for 4s , bt i think they have a negotiation with apple… also they(ultrasnow,snowbrz,yellosnow,geo hot,musclenerd) hav got a huge amount frm apple & that’s the reason fr delaying unlock.

  • Guest

    I downgraded my baseband from 6.15 cause I couldn’t unlock it on that baseband for some reason and now it works fine.

  • Potato

    What does it downgrade us TO? And if it’s possible to downgrade from iPad BB, then shouldn’t it also be possible to downgrade any other BB to a BB of your liking?
