    Hi, I was just restoring my ipod via nor flash (boot logo purposes) and an idea came to me. Since 3.0 is just a new firmware release , also with many upgrades ect. It would be possible to extract the 3.0 firmware (and goodies) and then inject them into a nor flash. Because from what I heard is that apple havn't encryped the firmware with iv/key. This was just an idea, but obv you need the RootFSKey which is highly encrypted, Leave your comments and I am open to critisism

    Look,

    * The NOR only contains the bootloaders and logos (iBoot, LLB, Apple Logo, etc) and does NOT contain any "goodies" that are new in 3.0.

    * All the "goodies" are in the Root Filesystem, which, as you said, is highly encrypted.

    * Why would you want a 3.0 NOR with a 2.2.1 filesystem???

    * Unless you messed around with and patched the 3.0 NOR, then the bootloaders (not patched) Apple NOR would refuse to boot a jailbroken filesystem.

    * Would that even work a 3.0 NOR+2.2.1 FS? What are you trying to achieve??

    isnt clear he is trying to acheive all the goodies from 3.0 but instead on his 2.2.1

    it would just be easier to jb 3.0 tho...
    then again thts MY opinion...
