Baseband is updated only with a newer version. Who is or put on 05:14:02 05:15:04 can not download them back to the version that has a lock can only updates with a new numbering. These two versions can not be unlocked yet. Version 6.15.2000 is taken from the iPad (iOS 3.2.2) which is the same chip as the iPhone 3G/3GS, and this makes baseband compatible. Flash on iPhone 3G/3GS of 6:15:00 is imperative because it is newer than the two that you mentioned as numbers, but also 06:15:00 is as old as time and contains the same exploit as the older versions are unlock by Ultrasn0w. One kind of method to unlock is by update with baseband containing exploit which makes unlocking possible.
