    Hi,

    I've been looking for some information concerning upgrading a jailbroken and unlocked Ipad BB 3GS from 5.1.1 to 6.x (I'm gessing 6.1.3) and I find myself confused more than anything.

    My phone is usually locked to a carrier for which I don't have a sim card anymore and I woud like to keep it jailbroken and unlocked. Can someone point me into the right direction?

    Thanks.

    Do not update it ! Cuz the current version is 6.1.3 which can't be jailbroken ! So stay on iOS 5.1.1 which I think is the best for 3GS

    Sorry, wrong, there is a jailbreak for 3GS on IOS 6.1.3. If it is old bootroom than untethered, with new bootroom only tethered.
    But, since you keep your unlock with ultrasnow, I wouldn't recommend upgrading, because there is a problem with ultrasnow and 6.1.3.
    Have you ever considered IMEI unlock, to get it simfree forever?

    You should stay at 5.1.1 and run Redsn0w to downgrade your ipad bb to 05.13.08 for a stable unlock.

    +1 (unless you've got valid SHSH blobs for another version of iOS 6, big "if" though).

    Will that bring back GPS functionality or will it stay foobared?

    Honestly, the only reason I wanted to upgrade to 6.x was to use the new GoPro app that requies iOS 6.

    I will probably be getting rid of my phone in a few months since I've had this one for over 3.5 years, but if it's too complicated or too expensive (IMEI unlock), then I probably won't bother.

    GPS will be back, for the rest, well, you will have to decide yourself

    EDIT: Nevermind, it passed through that part with windows 95 compatibility mode.

    I figured I would try downgrading the baseband, but whenever I click on the "Jailbreak" button in redsn0w, the application crashes with a "redsn0w.exe has stopped working". I tried 0.9.15b3 and a few others but no dice. I also tried on each version setting it to winxp sp3 and sp2 compatibility modes and setting the CPU affinity to CPU 1, but still the same problem.

    I'm on Windows 7. Any ideas?

    Have you temporarily disable your antivirus/security program?
