Firmware an US iPhone into an European iPhone?
Once the iPhone hits the market in Europe (Nov 9th), will it be possible to take an iPhone from the US and simply take the Baseband-Firmware from an European model and write it to the US model?
Why would anyone do this?
a) They've already bought an iPhone in the US and would now like to use it officially including Visual Voicemail and Dataplan.
b) To save money! The iPhone is about 100 Euros cheaper in the US.
I would assume that the firmware of all iPhones worldwide will be exactly the same, but that the Baseband-Firmware will differ. Is that assumption correct?
Would it then be possible to take the baseband-firmware from one iPhone and put it on another?
