How to upgrade baseband.
It's all reverse here. i WANT to update my old 1.59.00 baseband.
I have a factory unlocked iphone 4 with a 01.59.00 baseband (i used to believe it was not factory unlocked, so i was always updating ios versions using tinyumbrella, fooling itunes apple check ).
Unfortunatly i cannot update my baseband anymore. I am stuck to 1.59.00 whatever i do (upgrade or restore) from itunes. I also get the infamous "1013 error" that never lets me..that never lets me upgrade properly.. i must jailbreak using redsnow just after the 1013 error in order to complete the upgrade progress... So now i have a up to date version (4.3.2) but with an old baseband 1.59.00. How can i force a baseband update ? anyone ? thanks in advance
Firstly. only perform the following procedure if you are 100% sure you are "factory unlocked".
If you are unsure, aviegas posted a while back the steps to verify that you are "factory unlocked" without requiring a restore (and reversible if you have Open SSH installed)
Run TinyUmbrella, go to advanced tab, untick the "set hosts to Cydia on exit" option.
Try to restore/update via iTunes to 4.3.2 again, you should not get this error.
Thanks a lot Olethros. It worked like a charm !
i've searched that step by step guide from aviegas but couldnt find it..so i took the risk and followed your exact instructions (unchecking that tinyumbrella set hosts to Cydia on exit') . I still can't believe TinyUmbrella was operating in my system (modifying /etc/hosts or sometin' i guess) althought not running...
i now have a 4.10.01 baseband factory unlocked and YES i finally got rid of my low quality signal reception !!
To all of you who think upgrading the baseband is of no importance... you are wrong.
Again, thanks a lot.
