Earlier today, we got the most awaited iPad Baseband Downgrade for iPhone 3GS/3GS for which people waited two years. Every year the hopes were used to rise for the iPad Baseband Downgrade. Whenever there was used to be a new release of Redsn0w, people sued to think that the iPad Baseband Downgrade would be included in that or they might announce the iPad Baseband Downgrade some time soon. Unfortunately, that dream of iPad baseband Downgrade became a dream at those times. The last year, @Sherif_Hashim, the baseband Hacker for iPhone showed a demo of the iPad Baseband Downgrade in progress. Still there wasn’t any progress told by the team.
After one year of the demos, the iPad Baseband Downgrade finally emerged for users who were waiting for the downgrade from ages. Many of the users lost their GPS by updating to iPad Baseband 6.15.00. There was no other way than updating to iPad Baseband 6.15.00 and to go for the Unlock.
Today, all of those who updated to iPad Baseband have got an opportunity to go back to the old baseband that is 5.13.02 and retain the official unlock with GPS back in their iPhone 3GS/3G. We know that no one can wait for the iPad Baseband Downgrade because it must be the happiest day of his or her life. Every one must be willing to downgrade their iPad Baseband to old one and must be looking for a perfect guide. So we have made a small and perfect guide for the users stuck on iPad Baseband to Downgrade it the easy way.
