Discuss 3G on 4.2.1, Baseband 05.15, no SHSH blobs for earlier FW: Unlock possible? at the PwnageTool - Hackint0sh.org; I've searched (here & google), but don't have a clear picture of how to proceed.
3G on 4.2.1, Baseband 05.15, no SHSH blobs for earlier FW: Unlock possible?
I've searched (here & google), but don't have a clear picture of how to proceed.
I have a new-to-me iPhone 3G with FW 4.2.1 that I need to jailbreak and unlock. Baseband is at 05.15.04-5.9_M3S2, ECID 956xxxxxxx. I have local SHSH blobs for the current FW, but none for previous versions.
I tried 4.1.3 Pwnage tool to generate a custom FW, since that allows me to update baseband, but that will only take 4.1 + iPad 3.2.2 to get to baseband 06.15.00--but w/no SHSH blobs I can't use it to restore. Later versions of Pwnage tool don't give me the option to update baseband so I can unlock.
I looked for redsn0w 0.9.6rc5, since that also seems to be able to do the baseband update, but it's no longer on their site, and I've not been able to find another live link for it.
Am I fubar'd in a gap where I can't jailbreak & unlock? Or is there some other process that I just haven't been able to find? I'm currently working on OS X, but do have access to Win 7 or XP, if that gives me other options for tools to do the job.
Thanks in advance--
SHSH blobs are not actually 100% required on the iPhone 3G. It's only iTunes itself that enforces SHSH blobs for the iPhone 3G.

Have you actually tried to restore the 4.1 custom IPSW in combination with pwned DFU mode? I'm reasonably sure it will work.
Please read the stickies & search forum before posting! How to report an iTunes restore/update fail in a useful manner
iPad 3G 64GB (4.3.3, Redsn0w) oldest SHSH 3.2.2
iPhone 4 32GB (4.2.1, Redsn0w JB-monte) oldest SHSH 4.1
iPhone 3GS 32GB (4.3.3; Pwnagetool) factory unlocked oldest SHSH 3.1
iPhone 8GB (3.1.3; Pwnagetool) AT&T Locked - Unlocked with bootneuter
Did we solve your problem? Got a dollar or two spare ? Donate!
I was mistakenly trying to use the wrong custom firmware which was why it was failing; with the correct one, I was able to downgrade to 4.1. I tested without the iPad baseband hackery just to see if it would work.
