    Default Minimal iphone 3gs bundle mirror?

    Hello, I am trying to update an old iphone 3gs that I found in my grandfather's closet. The baseband is 5.11.07 which makes it unlockable. However being that its current software is 3.1.2, I need to upgrade it to 4.2.1 so that I can run redsn0w and unlock the device.

    I have been looking all over the internet for the minimal iphone 3gs bundle to upgrade the iphone to 4.2.1 without changing the baseband, every article on the internet including dev-team link here "," which no longer exists... does anyone possess a mirror of this file so that I can update?

    Thank you

    The easiest thing (and the only real legal thing, since downloading custom firmware is considered copyright infringement) is to download the firmware direct from Apple and then use PwnageTool to create a custom firmware that bypasses the baseband update yourself. It's the only safe way -- you can't always trust that the custom firmware you're downloading hasn't been tampered with beyond just blocking the baseband update. You don't need to download the custom firmware itself, you can create it with the proper version of PwnageTool.

    Good luck!
