    Your profile says you're on AT&T...can I ask why you wanted to use the iPad baseband? It's usually just used by people who need to unlock their phone for use on another carrier...

    Use Snowbreeze and create a custom Ipsw then use redsnow to boot to dfu mode only open iTunes and hold shift and restore select your custom Ipsw it will be just like restoring in iTunes ...

    Use google and download snowbreeze

    This program will ask for the original Ipsw and use that to create the custom one.

    Also what iPhone and software did u have before you tried to restore ?

    If you have the iPad baseband on your phone the ONLY way you can ever upgrade or restore your phone is by using a custom ipsw made with Pwnage Tool(Mac) or Sn0wbreeze(Windows). An ipsw is the iPhone firmware and you create a custom one with the tools I mentioned. Go to iClarified - Apple News and Tutorials and go to Tutorial, iPhone and Jailbreak and read one of the Pwnage Tool methods. It doesn't matter which one it is the same process since the beginning. If you can't get Sn0wbreeze I can make you an ipsw email me. Do a search on here for my username I've given out links and this information too many times. Peligro911 is exactly right.

    every time i put the ispw in snowbreeze it tells me it is not vailed . I had 4.21 I used redsnow to jailbreak and unlock . Thank you to you both for the info i will read that and try again . I may end up asking for the ispw if I can not make it work.

    If you have the custom firm ware made you don't need snowbreeze any more use redsnow and select the option boot to dfu mode right now then open iTunes hold shift and click restore and select your custom Ipsw

    This is nice to hear, I'm glad you were able to fix it, kweaver. When you say battery drain, are you referring to the apps in Cydia that can drain your battery? The main Cydia app that I used and it really drained my battery before the end of the day was, LockInfo. Nice app, but it does drain the battery. After I uninstalled it, my battery life is pretty much back to what it was on stock iOS, maybe a tad bit less.

    I actually find Lockinfo to be one of the better apps in regard to battery--I think due to the skills of the dev. I've had other apps that are just tiny tweaks yet still drain battery faster.

    If you're interested in giving Lockinfo another go, one thing I would suggest is not loading up a ton of RSS feeds, not having your weather update every five minutes, and so on--in other words, limit the how often it connects to the outside world instead of just your phone's info, and double check the settings (Lockinfo has a LOT of settings options!) to make sure you've got your Dim Delay, etc set up how you'd like.

    (Can you tell I like Lockinfo?)

    Jailbreak Apps that sap your battery

    Lockscreen themes which connect to the web for time, weather, etc. unless they have a setting to adjust polling interval

    Bytafont - you can get around it by intalling it, downloading and setting your font then uninstalling bytafont. However if you like to change up your fonts then you may have an issue

    OpenSSH - If you have it make sure you get SBSettings and turn it off everytime you're finished

    Themes - Using too many themes to change too many things is taxing for the system because the theme is over riding the stock icons, sounds, etc. So I usually try to incorporate my theme elements into one or two themes.

    I never regulate the official Appstore apps but I always regulate the JB apps only because for me they are apps I only use once a day so they don't need to reside in the app switcher. So once I'm done using it ie. iFile I will go in and kill the app. I also do the complete Cydia updates and then reboot and reboot once all my JB apps and tweaks are installed.

    Thanks, and yes, I can tell you like it. However, I think I had my settings optimized for battery performance while using LI, but it didn't make too much difference. I've noticed my battery life did go up a little after I uninstalled it, so I think I'll pass on giving it another try. Besides, iOS 5 will be arriving shortly which will bring Notifications with it..... Thanks for the advice here, Massie.

    Unfortunately you won't be able to downgrade the baseband. When you install the iPad's baseband you can't reverse the process. I am not sure of the first part of you question, sorry.

    I also notice you're on a 3G on 4.2.1, according to your profile. If that's the case I really can't suggest strongly enough that an upgrade--even to a 3GS, which are very affordable on contract--would make a great difference in your performance.

    Good pick up, I never thought to look at the profile. You are right, though. A woman I work with is running the 4.0 and even her 3G iPhone is slower than ever. She plans to upgrade to the iPhone 5 when it comes out.
