vesh June 16, 2010, 10:10 pm

wht about 3gs 3.1.3 , 05.12.01 baseband?

iPhoneHeat June 16, 2010, 10:24 pm

Did u read the last point listed under IMPORTANT?

I did, but it seems to imply ios4.0 with baseband 5.12.01, instead of ios3.1.3 baseband 5.12.01. Being a first time unlocker/jailbreaker it takes quite a bit of time to wade through the hundreds of different app names, guides, and youtube videos. There really should be a FAQ. Happy to help start one if that would help others.
