    Yes, either use sn0wbreeze (Windows) or PwnageTool (Mac) to create a custom firmware, which will preserve your baseband. After the restore, install ultrasn0w on Cydia and you're unlocked.

    I just saw this post today and I thought maybe I could add my two cents in. Unless this is illegal to discuss here, you could update to 4.3.3(with the apple firmware), and use redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 to implant the iPad baseband (which made the iPhone 3G and 3GS permanently unlockable) and then unlock using that. Anything prior to the iPhone 4 has been made permanently unlockable through that method. It would always be good to pull your shsh from apple using tinyumbrella so you could always restore back to whatever software you are trying to use.

    While this works, you should be clear -- this is a one way trip. Once the iPhone 3G / 3GS has been upgraded to the iPad baseband, you will begin having trouble with your GPS, and you can *NEVER* restore back to a previous baseband, and *NEVER* restore to a stock firmware in the future. The permanence of this solution is one of the reasons that it is so highly non-recommended. Once it has been completed, you cannot downgrade the baseband and are stuck with the iPad baseband on the device. While this does allow you to unlock, it makes continual ownership and upgrading of the device a big hassle, as you have to make a custom firmware any time you want to restore again in the future. Because of this (and the GPS issues), it is only recommended if it is the absolute last possible way to unlock your phone as the problems it creates are a big nuisance.
    The preceding forum post has been brought to you by the letter "N" and the number 42.

    iPhone 4, 32GB (iOS 6.1.2 | evasi0n | SHSH: 4.0 - 6.1.2)
    iPad 2 3G, 64GB (iOS 6.1.2 | evasi0n
    |
    SHSH: 4.3 & 4.3.3 - 6.1)

    Sorry about this. I should've gone over that when I posted my advice.
