How To Upgrade Your iPhone On iOS 5.1 Without Updating Your Baseband

How To Upgrade Your iPhone On iOS 5.1 Without Updating Your Baseband - Complete Guide


Earlier this month, Apple released the new iPad along with iOS 5.1 update for iPhones , iPads and iPod touch 3rd and 4th generation. You can download and install the latest iOS 5.1 on your Apple device either by OTA update or by connecting your iPhone-iPad-iPod to iTunes and launching update. Some features of iOS 5.1 include Siri in Japanese language and some other minor performance updates. What's not good about directly updating your iOS device to 5.1 is that your baseband gets upgrated too. If you rely on Ultrasn0w unlock then you should never directly update your iPhone via iTunes. In this section we'll take you though the process of updaing an iPhone without updating the baseband so that it can be unlocked.

If you want to create a backup of your iPhone data before upgrading to iOS 5.1 then follow this guide. 

Before we begin with the guide make sure you download and save the following on your desktop.

  • Latest version of Redsn0w : Download link :  http://tinyurl.com/43ne8or
  • iOS 5.1 : Download link :  http://tinyurl.com/5ad5rm
Once you have downloaded Redsn0w and iOS 5.1, place them in one folder for your convenience. Extract the redsn0w archive and you should be able to see 5 extracted files from that archive like the below screenshot.

Now redsn0w will cook a custom iPSW file for your iPhone which will prevent your baseband from getting upgraded. This process usually takes some time so sit back and relax until the cumtom iPSW is ready.

Once the custom iPSW is ready, you can proceed with updating your iPhone with the following methods.
In the extras menu, select Pwned DFU. This step is very IMP and should be done exactly as mentioned. Its very important to get an iPhone into Pwned DFU mode to install cumtom iPSW. Follow the on screen instructions carefully.

Instructions For Getting Into DFU Mode

  • Switch off your iPhone
  • Hold the power button for 3 seconds
  • Now, without releasing the power button also press and hold the home button for 10 seconds.
  • Without releasing the home button, release the power button but continue holding the home button until your device enters DFU mode and you redsn0w automatically detects it.

Once done, launch iTunes to install the custom iPSW that we just created using redsn0w. As soon as you launch iTunes, a pop-up alert saying - "iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode" would appear. This is supposed to happen so don't panic :) Select your iPhone and then hold down the shift key and click restore and select the firmware that we created using Redsno0w : NO_BB custom IPSW. Your iPhone will now be updated to latest iOS 5.1 without your baseband getting upgraded.
