If you have to just modify the iPhone 3G baseband to 2.28 without updating the firmware to 2.2 or 2.2.1, this is the easiest method to follow! The main reason for only upgrading the baseband to 2.28 is to achieve software unlock and still preserving all the jailbreak apps and appstore apps on the iPhone 3G.
