    I have taken the plunge last night , down to 3.9 now and am pleased that all is well. I would seriously recommend anyone else to consider this route as the more time that passes the more Apple will think of the revenue that they are loosing and do something to screw us.

    why would they? geohot released software for software downgrading BL with few more checks and that are to check in 3.9norz for bootrom locations blank. With bootrom locations blank there is a way to software upgrade BL and he DIDNT make that checks pointlessy, he made them because he knows that currently there is _NO OTHER_ solution of upgrading BL (except HW way). Ofc people all they saw is "OMG software BL downgrade, lets remove checks and downgrade!". There might be some other way, but there is also possibe that there is none, NOONE knows, not even on apple. Now tell me why on earth you think for ex. geohot should actualy put effort in to finding software way to upgrade BL, since its CLEARLY not his fault that there might be so many people stuck on 3.9? with his ORIGINAL tool noone would be able to downgrade to "original" 3.9 BL, so its clearly not his fault, its fault of people that enforces downgrade to unmodifyed BL3.9 (zibri) without ANY warning and discussions what this can cause... IF custom BL will go live some day, you will all wish you would never downgrade BL...
