How to stop redsn0w from crash and exit whenever fetching iPad baseband?

You should UNCHECK “install cydia” option if you are going to install iPad baseband for your iPhone 3GS.

If you check both “Install Cydia” and “Install iPad Baseband” together, redsn0w will exit and closed immediately when “fetching iPad baseband”.
So, simply repeat the steps to jailbreak using redsn0w and uncheck the “Install cydia” option if you are going to install iPad baseband.

Fetching iPad baseband is the process of download iPad baseband files from Apple server. If the process takes a little longer, just wait. The redsn0w most likely not stuck, but slow progress due to Internet connectivity.
