    Default Bootloader?

    Hello there,

    Sorry for asking, but what is a "bootloader"? Does it have something to do with the unlocking process?

    " July 9, 2007 2:50 Eastern Update

    The bootloader is basically a dead end. Everything that goes into it must be signed, and without apples 1024-bit RSA private key, this isn't going to happen. Fortunately we have another in. We have basically full command over the file system and can upload, copy, and run files. I'll say this, ringtones would be a *trivial* thing to do now. "

    Is a special small program, called a bootstrap loader, bootstrap or boot loader. This program's only job is to load other software for the operating system to start.

    You could control what the phone does when started.

    Sounds interesting and makes sense. Thanks for the enlightenment.
