    Question [ZiPhone][Idea] Downgrade BL could lead into trouble?

    Hi guys,

    I just wanted to ask you something I was wondering about lately.

    While downgrading the Bootloader doesn't seem to be a big deal these times, upgrading the bootloader has not yet been mentioned (back to BL 4.6)

    I was just curious if downgrading the BL could lead Apple into comparing the BL with SN# to exclude some iPhones from being supported by iTunes etc...
    what do you think?

    I just need some more opinions instead of just mine

    Greetz,

    SpackY2k

    I doubt apple will target people who downgraded this way. If apple really wanted they could brick all the unlocked iPhones with future upgrades. But apple know this will lead to bad publicity. Remember there are over 1 million unlocked iPhones according to some reports.

    Anyway if that happen just use a older version of itunes.

    But some people here think downgrading the bootloader is a bad idea, not because of apple restricting features. It could mean missing out on geohot's custom bootloader.

    Personally i wouldn't downgrade. The only disadvantage is not being able to use the latest baseband. Messing with bootloader for this reason is not justified.

    Apple couldn't care less if there are over 1 million unlocked iPhones out there. It's AT&T that should be worried about that. As long as iPhones are selling, Apple is happy.

    If AT&T wants to have more iPhone customers, they should lower the prices and end that stupid 2 year agreement. I'm not saying this will solve the unlocked phones problem... But hey... it's better than nothing!

    Anyway, staying on topic.

    As said before, Apple could have re-locked those unlocked iPhones a long time ago, so there's no need to check something as "deep" as the bootloader. There are other easier ways to re-lock. Chill out! Enjoy your phone for now. If something like that happens, I'm sure the community will not be silent.

    Apple
    sucks.
    Microsoft rules.


    TurboSIM-like methods? No way.

    - Unlocked Week 47 1.1.3 iPhone, baseband 04.04.05_G.
    - Bought in Minneapolis, MN;
    - Currently on TIM carrier.

    I'm not here to find help. I'm here to help others and give back what I've learned from Hackint0sh.
