Modem downgrade (rollback / downgrade) from 06.15.00 to 05.13.04 for iPhone 3G / 3GS
Finally, the possibility of a modem downgrade. A working GPS is waiting for you. To check, you can use the standard maps, if the blue dot blinks in circles, then the GPS is working. If the point is static, then AGPS works.
Important! You can go down from any bootrom, and only ONLY WITH MODEM 06.15.00 !
Only who has the iPhone 3GS 2011 phone, 23 weeks and newer - Starting from approximately 23 weeks since 2011, apple began installing new flash chips on iphone 3gs phones. This led to the fact that it became impossible to unlock the phone through the method of flashing the modem from the ipad, the phone was "dying." But, as it turned out, such a chip was not installed on all iphones ... Whoever has the iPhone 3GS phone - 2011 is 23 weeks and newer, you will have to check in the workshop what chip you have (open the phone).
If the chip number is 36MY1EE , Spansion S72NS128RD0HL or Spansion 72NS128RDOAHBLO, you can safely update the modem.
If the chip number 36MY1EH , do not update the modem , it will kill the modem flash drive phone!
