    So you know how you can pick to boot into linux or iphoneos, well would it be possible to boot into differnt firmware versions

    I mainly want to do this because, if 3.0 comes out, then theyll have to port all the apps in cydia into 3.x like they did when 2.0 came out... and that will take a long time.

    so i want to option to boot either into 2.whatever or 3.0 (or maybe something else, 1.1.x? 2.2? whatever)

    possible? and if so, someone needs to start making a way to do it...

    Although I am far from being an expert on this, I would assume that all 2.x apps would work on the 3.x firmware since otherwise there chaos caused by those who want 2.x app store apps and there shouldn't be any difference between app store apps and cydia apps since they use the same coding stuffs. (or so I think)

    You really think Apple will change the frameworks with all the apps in the app store. That would mean every app on the app store will have to be ported. They are not gonna change the frameworks.

    maybe
    but, i really don't see a point for it
    i mean, i could understand one of the 1.x firmwares and a 2.x firmware, but the 2.x firmwares are all basically the same, each just improving on the other

    I read somewhere that the dev team used to have multiple os and switch in order to test their jailbreaks.

    This is actually a good idea.
    Maybe someone should suggest this to the Dev Team =P

    it would be kool to either use to test stuff on or just in general or any specific need.

    You used to be able to, but it doesn't work anymore. 2.x eliminated some of the necessities, like terminal commands and such, if I understood the explanation I read correctly.
