[PWNAGE BL] using 1.1.4, 04.04.05_G w/ BL 3.9MS32... update BL or not?
hi all, i have used Pwnage a few times now w/out issue on my iPhone, mostly for the ability to change the boot and recovery images but am planning on doing a clean install tonight... each time i have never touched any of the settings on Builder aside from 'Activate Phone', no baseband updates nor any of the BootNeuter options. each time, my phone has come out of it still unlocked and ready to go w/ my foreign (thai) SIM card...
my phone is a week 28 model, and i just checked and see that it is currently running BL version 3.9MS32, my IMEI still matches its original state and wifi seems to work normally, although occasionally i do get some dropouts during extended use. i am wondering whether i should make use of the BootNeuter option or not here, i really don't understand the benefit of running one over the other aside from a god while back having 3.9 meant that i was safer when it came to reverting and updating.
so, any opinion here? any benefit to using BootNeuter to move up to 4.6, am i already where i want to be or no? have done a lot of reading but to be honest i cannot figure out what is preferable at this stage so any input would be great... planning on cleaning things up and trying out a Cydia/Installer combo for a bit. thx in advance friends..!
There is NO benefit of going to 4.6.
The only reason that people want to go to 4.6 is because ziphone/iliberty changed the bootloader to unlock (as before BootNeuter you could not unlock 1.1.4 on 4.6 bootloader).
The people that go back only do it because they want to return it to apple for warranty OR because they have the 3.9FB version and want to go back to a "safer" version.
the "Neuter" part removes the security checks from the phone so it can run the 1.1.4 unlock on 4.6 bootloaders. The fact it works on 3.9 is just for convenience as it doesn't need it as 3.9 is easy to unlock anyway!
