    Default [Bootloader] Downgraded to 3.9, can upgrade back to 4.6?

    I have a OTB113 16GB iPhone and unlocked by Ziphone 2.5b, it downgraded the BL from 4.6 to 3.9. Can I upgrade it back to BL4.6?

    not at this time, as the 3.9 bootloader doesnt have an exploit that allows bootloader upgrades. Only the 4.6BL can be upgraded/downgraded etc. Turns out that the 4.6BL has more exploits than 3.9

    Geohots working on a custom BL called 4.6_GEOMOD.

    This means that your iphone could have a custom bootloader with "unlocking" hard-coded into it. and this would be the best unlock ever. it would survive all updates. At this time he hasnt released it, and you can only install it from a 4.6BL (because only 4.6 can be upgradeed/downgraded)

    When he has released it, though, he will (or even might be now) looking for an exploit that allows 3.9BL to be upgraded/downgraded etc.

    Hope this helps

    tamkfai,

    after upgrade from 4.6 to 3.9, i can tell you that it is "that's all folk" or the end at the moment.

    nothing interesting with 3.9. only some nice features in google maps

    no more warranty from apple

    unfortunatly you are a casualty of ziphone upgarding right now is not a option. It it best that you take the very best care of your iPhone so that you don't have to rely on apple to replace it because they might not. I would keep a eye out though because a upgrade might be avliable

    they dont check the bootloader because there is no need to. The only thing they check is your baseband.
