    Well stupid me somehow downloaded the newest firmware on itunes and now my Iphone 3G is a nice paper weight and I have looked everywhere and even tried fuzzyband from Cydia, but unfortunately I have 5.09 bootloader and fuzzyband only works with 5.08 bootloader or less. IS THERE ANYWAY TO HACK OR CHANGE THE BASEBAND BACK TO 4.26.08 with my Iphone 3G? I am just looking at the Iphone now as a Mp3 player or paper weight if someone knows a way please help me or some advice thanks in advance please comment

    I think you've now got an iPod Touch.

    I think the poster was incenuating that your iPhone is merely an iPod touch.

    I mean I don't think there is currently a way to unlock ( or downgrade ) your baseband leaving you with an iPhone without the Phone part.

    I have looked everywhere on how to do it, but losing the phone part is not a good look you know what I mean? There's got to be a way to hack it or something otherwise it's still just a paper weight

    You're still out of luck. There's no guarantee there will ever be an unlock for that baseband. You'll have to give the jailbreak groups a while longer.

    OK thanks for your response I heard some hackers are working on it and something may come by sunday, so I'll wait and see hopefully

    GeoHot it working on a jailbreak, but not an unlock. iH8Snow is working on Sn0wbreeze which should be the same as the Pwnage Tool that the Mac has. This will create a custom firmware file, to avoid upgrading the firmware, to keep unlocking possible. Sn0wbreeze is scheduled to be released on Monday ( 10/12 ). I've not read about any unlocking as of yet. You may have to wait for the ChronicDevTeam to finish up greenp0ison but I'm not sure it is supporting unlocking at this point either. Sorry I don't have better news.

    I've heard a few of my friends talking about a process to downgrade the modem baseband. I don't know all the details but I know my friends are hardcore modmyi peeps so check Apple & iPhone News | Forums | ModMyi.com but be aware that the process also has a possibility of bricking your phone.

    PS
    blackra1n is only to JB, they have a warning not to upgrade to 3.1.2 if you care about unlocking.

    As everyone else has stated, you've lost your unlock and there is no way to get it back at all now. Lesson learned about updating your FW through iTunes.

    It sounds like your phone is either in DFU mode or passcode lock. Do you have your SIM in the phone? was your phone unlocked previously?
