    Okay so about a year ago I unlocked a family members iPhone 3GS with the iPad baseband, the phone is Fido but the plan she is with is Telus, I wanna upgrade her to iOS 5, but she still needs to be unlocked, does anyone know a detailed guide on how to do this? Thanks

    You will need:
    download snowbreeze
    download iphone 3gs iOS 5.0 IPSW
    an iPhone 3gs
    The ability to say YAY! and follow step by step instructions posted here:

    run snowbreeze > feed it iphone 3gs ipsw > Select new or old bootrom accordingly > snowbreeze is about to make you a custom ipsw and asks you for custom settings >Select Expert Mode > general > check 'hactivate' > next > next > build IPSW

    Now you have custom iOS 5.0 IPSW! YAY!

    Snowbreeze tells you to push some buttons > Your phone is now in pwned DFU mode > close snowbreeze > Open iTunes > click Shift + Restore (to 'restore' your iphone)

    Now you've installed custom iOS 5.0 IPSW! YAY!

    It's already activated, and jailbroken (tethered only) with Cydia! YAY!

    You lost all your stuff so I hope you did a backup of everything! YAY!

    Open Cydia > Install Ultrasn0w > restart iPhone > Use either redsn0w or iBooty to boot it up > say "YAY!"

    Now you're done! YAY!

    Also...

    If you want to know more about this, you should PROBABLY check out the entire forum section dedicated to jailbreak, unlock, and everything related to that. It contatins tons of information, including everything I showed you here.
