    Lightbulb [[1.1.2 OTB]1.1.3] Some questions about JAU

    Hello Fellas...

    I want some answers that i cant confirm doing a search....
    Its NOT A PROBLEM...only to satisfy my wisdom...
    First i want to say something...

    - I have a 1.1.2 OOB (Now at 1.1.3) Jailbreaked / Activated / Unlocked

    The first "unlocking" that i used is the "X-SIM" method.
    And worked for a long time if no problem.
    (i have a long time when all 1.1.2 is locked..and the X-SIM is the unique solution)

    I think 1 or 2 months ago i used the ZIPHONE method (i dont remember the
    version...that is my question now..) and i never used more the X-SIM...

    I remember that 1.1.4 in that time do not exist...But i remember some steps..
    I have to RESTORE in Itunes my 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 and them run ziphone.
    (i dont want to use yet the 1.1.4 because some problems with installer apps
    and to do all my iphone settings again..and again... )

    But..after this LONG text... my questions...

    First of all....i reading this FORUM for months every day...but some question dont me make sleep well at night !

    - Why some users are afraid with the bootloaders: 4.6 , 3.9FB and so on..
    Downgrading the Bootloader will affect in the future my iphone ????
    Is the "moment discussion of the month" i think... so i want to know everything
    that you can tell me about that !

    Is my bootloader downgraded ? (I used Ziphone i dont now the version)
    Why people downgrade his own bootloader ???
    I have installed a app called BBINFO

    Bootloader Version = 4.6_M3S2 (I think not so ! im right ?)
    Modem Firmware = 04.02.13_G

    I have read this topic which helps me a lot
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/show...nge+bootloader

    But i cannot reach my question...
    There is any problem in the future downgrading the Bootloader ?
    Can i upgrade to 1.1.4 in the future using ANY of the solutions ?
    (Ziphone , Liberty or Iplus)

    Im serious...im read everyday the forum since December 2007.
    Im confused about these methods....
    Everyday someone release a method. Everyday the STICKS posts change...
    Everyday someone are worried about the Bootloader..

    Some please....help me here to understand this

    No one can answers this simple question to me ?

    I have found this

    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=29261

    "Bad: You can't upgrade back to 4.6 without opening your iPhone. Also, using Ziphone you are REQUIRED to downgrade to 3.9BL"

    So..i repeat the question... what the benefits of 4.6 in the future ?
    Or maybe i can use this question....what the bad about staying with 3.9 ?

    If i used ZIPHONE...why the app BBInfo tells me that i have the 4.6 ?

    Downgrading shouldn't affect the future of your iPhone, specially if you use iPlus or iLiberty, wich downgrades to 3.9FakeBlank, wich is a modified 3.9 bootloader that can be easily unlocked and upgraded back to the regular 4.6 if you need to.

    I guess that you used an old version of Ziphone that unlocks the 4.6BL, the BL downgrading was an option in the past, but in the newer versions of Ziphone it's was done automatically without consulting the users (not sure if it is still like that), and the problem with Ziphone was that instead of using the 3.9FB, it uses the regular 3.9BL wich cannot be changed like the 3.9FB BL or the 4.6...

    Thank you ver much.
    Your help is very appreciated !

    Talking about that.... i remember this option...
    That i not CHECKED .... i almost sure....but of course im not 100% sure about that... Someone can confirm this info please...and someone that have used the last versions of ziphone can confirm using the app BBInfo what they show for you ?

    So can we consider Ziphone the "worst" method availiable nowadays ???
    (Because they do some irreversible work...that "maybe" became a problem in the future ? or not...this question still alive for my 1st post...)
    Nobody can confirm what will happen with these people that downgraded his own BL in the future ?

    When i write here FUTURE...read...future jailbreaks/unlocks/activations in case of a RESTORE or something app that mess you iphone and you have to do a restore.....is case of a firmware upgrading....in case of a native app dont work with this BL (yeah..im not a expert..i dont know and i cant imagine the real consequences)

    Please people...i know there are some expert users that can write here something util for the community ...

    If bbinfo says 4.6_M** then it's 4.6BL don't worry about that...

    You could consider it... that's why Zibri isn't liked much in here...

    No, nobody can confirm anything in the future, but even so, there is a LOT of people who have 3.9 BL OOB, so Apple wouldn't do anything to leave out so many costumers...
    And there is the problem, if in the future there is a better unlocking, jailbreaking or activating method, and if it requires you to chage your BL or do something with it, those people won't be able to change that unless they use the Hardware method.

    There shouldn't be any problems with native apps and the BL I think they work on different levels...
