Now that's a good one! Thanks, will give it a try!!! Great work by the way, whited00r rocks!

Yes indeed, and I tried all of the, modified the location plist using instructions from another forum, quite a few things. It just doesn't work. It seems to me the location daemon dies soon after starting.
I have given up on installing 3.3.1 or Whitedoor on this phone, simply installed iOS 4.2.1, did jailbreak and added a few simple things, and it works acceptably well. It is just puzzling the way it fails. Interesting that 4.1 standard works, but the pre-jailbroken version with Redd00r support, fails too!

Nope, I get a hard failure, it says "Unable to determine location" and that's it. Shows the USA map only (I am waaaayyy south from there LOL!)

Thank for your answers guys!

tLustej.miCin I can downgrade to 5.13.04 so I don't think the BB chip is the problem.

bcooperizcool Well, I did it a million times already, with BB 5.13.04, GPS works just fine on iOS 4.2.1 or unmodified iOS 4.1. It does not work on vanilla iOS 3.3.1, doesn't work on Whited00r 5 or 6, and it doesn't work on the modified for Redd00r iOS 4.1 (who claims to be 4.3.2). In all these cases, I don't get the arrow on the top right indicating location services are active. I do get it to show just fine with vanilla 4.1 or 4.2.1

I am lost on this, really. It should work out of the box, it does with other 3G iphones.

2013-05-06 PierreP moderator note: his device is an iPhone 3G Factory Unlocked so there is no need to upgrade & downgrade the modem firmware (a.k.a. baseband or bb) to carrier unlock. In that case, simply install Whited00r 6 Normal version on top of stock iOS 4.2.1 installed with iTunes as per the whited00r Tutorial - Installation


Original post:

Hello all, thanks to the authors for providing such a fine piece of custom firmware!

Here's my problem. I have downgraded my iPhone 3g from baseband 6.15.00 to 5.13.04 using Redsn0w.

I tried the downgrade to 5.12.01 BB tutorial from this site and I cannot get to the point where the BB version information is blanked out on the About page. To be honest that happened once, but I missed my chance then. I have upgraded to iPad basebad, downgraded, then restored ios 3.1.3 more than 20 times, no luck! Crazy...

Is there a secret on how to get to the "null" BB status? Why is my restore to ios 3.1.3 not downgrading? Should it? I believe once you upgrade, then the BB stays at that level, and that is what I have seen. I don't have blobs for 3.1.3 but I understand those are not needed to restore 3.1.3 as I have verified, but dunno about the BB, maybe can't downgrade BB without blobs?

Thanks for any help. This phone GPS works just fine with 4.2.1, it is only with the lower versions that it fails. Makes sense, because it came out with ios 4.0.1 !!! So it might be somehow incompatible.

Thanks for any comments, or tricks that may make this work!
