    Default Question about bootloader 05.09 and iOS 4.0.1

    So I have a 3g phone that was on 4.0.1 and unlocked/JB. Worked great. I wanted to prep the phone for selling and used the erase setting on the phone to get rid of personal information. It got stuck on the apple for hours. I finally tried re JB it, but didn't have any luck. Tried restore using different firmwares, with no luck. I gave in on a restore with 4.1 knowing I'd have to restore to a lower one later to unlock, but didn't know my baseband would be stuck on 05.14.02 (4.1's baseband) My question is this:

    If I attempt a restore to 4.0.1, will I still be stuck with this baseband that can't be unlocked as long as I have bootloader 05.09?? Or will it change the baseband to something that can be unlocked? I was planning on using Fuzzyband, but that doesn't work on the 05.09 bootloader. Should I just wait until a new bootloader downgrade comes out from Fuzzyband, or the dev team comes up with a solution? I'd rather leave it on a 3.X firmware since I've seen how doggy and slow 4.X is. Thanks for any help!

    You are 100% stuck. It has been made very clear that fuzzyband only works on 05.08 baseband bootloader.

    There has not been another baseband bootloader level exploit in the two and a half years since 05.09 was released to block fuzzyband downgrader. This is a strong indication that there won't be another baseband bootloader level exploit found.

    Need to wait for an unlock for 05.14.02. Expect this (worst case July 2011), (otherwise maybe in late November 2010) What iOS version you run while you wait is your personal choice.

    Thread closed. Yet another duplicate 05.14.02 can't be unlocked question.
