From what I've heard I'm screwed?
Ok so I got a new iPhone 3GS last night as a replacement for one that had some software issues (long story...) and i got it at 4.3.5 and was so excited i stupidly upgraded and jailbroke immediately after hearing of the untethered 5.0.1, i'm with T-mobile and so started looking up if i can flash iPad baseband on it. Soon i learned unlockers should stay away from official ipsw's (i learned my lesson...), my baseband is locked, and since its a 2011 3GS and it has the new bootrom flashing the iPad baseband will brick it. I started looking at Gevey SIM but from what I've seen it only works on iPhone 4 's? I really need this unlocked or i'm going to have to sell it on craigslist or something.
Here are the stats
Modem Firmware- 05.16.05
I also have 4.1, 5.0.1, and some beta 5.1 thing shsh saved
So do i have any options or solutions and is all that stuff true?

Luckily enough, you have your SHSH blobs saved!
Follow this guide, it will work.

After the restore is finished, you will most certainly get a 1015 error code. Simply boot up Tiny Umbrella, and click on "Exit Recovery." Your phone will then proceed to reboot normally.
I thought flashing the iPad baseband on a new bootrom 3GS will brick it?
Nope. It's fine for both the old and new bootrom.

Well like I said in first post it is a 2011 3gs so are there any other options?
Bumpity, I need confirmation!
