Use RedSn0w 0.9.14b1 to Downgrade 06.15.00 on iPhone 3G/3GS [How to]
iPhone Dev Team has recently released new Redsn0w 0.9.14b1 specially to downgrade 06.15.00 baseband to 05.13.04 and unlock it using Ultrasn0w on iPhone 3G, 3GS.
The first news about the possibility to downgrade 06.15.00 baseband came from Musclenerd.

Also this process will fix GPS problem and you will have the ability to to use stock iOS firmware files (IPSW) again.
Redsn0w 0.9.14b1 is working even if you update iPhone baseband to 06.15.00 to downgrade it later. However I must tell your that new iPhone 3GS (models that was produced after 34 week of 2011) is not compatible with this iPad baseband so you better stay away from this because it can corrupt your baseband.
However this post is for those who are already using this iPad baseband and wanting to downgrade 06.15.00 on iPhone 3GS (3G).
