Redsn0w 0.9.14b2 coming soon to fix 06.15.00 downgrade issues for some 3Gs users

Ever since we posted the 06.15.00 iPad baseband downgrade tutorial last week, we have received numerous reports from our readers that the baseband was just not downgrading. The process would go through normally and look like it was working, but in the end the baseband would remain on 06.15.00. Yesterday, @MuscleNerd announced that he has figured out why some 3Gs devices have been “refusing” the baseband downgrade. He says that he will be receiving a device to test it on this Thursday in order to address the issue which is apparently due to variations in the NOR chip.

Downgrade 06.15.00 Baseband to 05.13.04 with Redsn0w 0.9.14b2 (Video Tutorial)

bb1

This is a video tutorial that will walk you through downgrading your iPhone 3G/3Gs from the iPad baseband 06.15.00 to 05.13.04 which is another Ultrasn0w compatible baseband that will allow you to unlock and use your GPS capabilities. It is very important that if you have a 3Gs and it was manufactured on or after the 35th week of 2011 you SHOULD NOT install the iPad baseband. Doing so will permanently brick your cell radio. You can tell when your device was manufactured by looking at the 3rd, 4th and 5th digits of your phone’s serial. The 3rd digit is …

Earlier this week, we reported that MuscleNerd had made great progress on his 06.15.00 baseband downgrade that has been mentioned and speculated pretty much since the release of the iPad baseband unlock method. Those with a 3G/3Gs who have updated to the 06.15.00 baseband in order to unlock with ultrasn0w have been dealing with GPS issues ever since. Finally MuscleNerd has everything in place for a downgrade that will let you downgrade your 06.15.00 baseband to any other earlier iPhone baseband. Today, MuscleNerd tweeted that he is aiming for a release this Sunday(funday), but as always, release dates are tentative …

MuscleNerd confirms progress on 06.15.00 iPad baseband downgrade

bb

Well, it has probably been a year or so since the last time we heard about any progress being made on fixing the 06.15.00 baseband GPS issues plaguing iPhone 3G/3Gs users who were forced to upgrade their baseband in order to unlock. There was talk for a while about MuscleNerd creating an 06.15.00 baseband downgrade so that 3G/3Gs users who were on the 06.15.00 baseband could downgrade back to 05.13.04 which would still allow them to unlock via Ultrasn0w, but would also allow them to use their GPS once again.

There are no further details, but he does go on …

Voice Assistant is a hidden gem in the dictation app world

voice assistant

Rating:

I was recently given the opportunity to test a great dictation application called Voice Assistant by QuanticApps. I have used my fair share of voice recognition apps, including Siri of course. Since I had never heard of this application before, I was skeptical as to how accurate it would be. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is extremely accurate, more-so than other applications I have used, such as Dragon. I spoke 3 paragraphs and there wasn’t a single error, even when I was talking fast to try and trip it up. Not only that, but it boasts …

Redsn0w 0.9.8b7c Fixes Error 1015 During 4.3.5 Firmware Restore

redsn0w

If you are one of the iPhone3Gs users that has updated your baseband to 06.15.00 in order to unlock, you may have realized that it is not possible for you to do a factory restore in iTunes. This is because the iPad baseband causes what is known as a “baseband panic” when you try to restore. The iPhone is not supposed to be able to run 06.15.00 so it causes iTunes to error out. Because of this, the only way to restore using the iPad baseband is to create a custom firmware using Sn0wbreeze or Pwnage Tool. Of course, neither …
