iPhone 3GS user who flash iPad 6.15.00 baseband lost their GPS features, they were not able to use their GPS features with any application available in market. Whenever they wanted to use their GPS services they got an error message saying “Location Services Not Working”. But thankfully there’s a solution now. You can jailbreak your iPhone 3GS which has iPad’s 6.15.00 baseband with redsn0w 0.9.9b6 to fix your GPS location services issue.
Release Notes of redsn0w 0.9.9b6:
We’ve released version 0.9.9b6 of redsn0w, with both a functional fix and cosmetic fix for iOS5 jailbreakers. For iPhone3GS owners with the 06.15 baseband, this redsn0w eliminates the network crash you saw when using Location Services in iOS5 (in fact, you don’t even need to disable Location Services anymore during the initial setup). The cosmetic fix is to the visual countdown you see when going into DFU mode.
It’s okay to re-run this redsn0w over an existing device jailbroken at iOS5. Just choose “Jailbreak” again and de-select Cydia (in other words, all the checkboxes will be unchecked). If you are lucky enough to have an old-bootrom iPhone3GS, please pre-select the IPSW first (redsn0w can’t yet auto-detect the FW version of your old-bootrom 3GS if it’s already been jailbroken).
