Too bad, the natural selection is not only harmful for the human being, it is also harmful for the iPhone.
Assuming a new 1.1.3 OTB phone, if Apple coded the bootloader to not allow/accept any installation of versions older than 1.1.3 (since theoretically and practically noone would ever have a legitimate need to do so, going by Apple rules) wouldn't that easily hamper any further jailbreaking/hactivating of the phone? That assuming of course that 1.1.3 will not have a Safari exploit in it, as 1.1.1 did, which we can pretty much rule out since 1.1.2 already fixed it.
Bootloader is the first code read into the memory when booted, including the recovery mode, is that right? If so, isn't total control of the phone included there, thus making the theory above programatically possible?
Not an expert and just theoretizing here, wonder what you guys think...
It's possible, in theory. But they would need to code the minimal version allowed in EACH bootloader released, or at least version 1.1.2 (that has no bug on it, as of today).
What if "legal people" wanted to use version 1.1.1 ? I know, there is no need to, but it's a possibility.
But the real point is, apple doesn't care about people jailbreaking the iphone and using it as a ipod, they only care about the sim-lock. (because by using other carriers apple loose the % at&t pays them).
but if they will use it as an ipod touch or with other carriers its the same thing? cuz there not using it with at&t while using it as an ipod..?:s
then you are going to get At&t or just u paid 400$ for 8G iPod Touchbut if they will use it as an ipod touch or with other carriers its the same thing? cuz there not using it with at&t while using it as an ipod..?:s

When is the release date of firmware 1.1.3? Can I buy an iphone through the online store, and still get a firmware 1.1.2? When is it not safe more?
that question was already answered a million times on here...
