    Ziphone iPod touch Bootloader issue!?!?!??

    Ok, i've read alot of threads and NONE answer my questions!
    I jailbroke my iPod Touch lately with Ziphone 2.6b.
    Works fine but one thing i'm worried about and that i didnt know about when i jailbroke was that bootloader issue!
    I read some threads saying that the danger of downgrading the bootloader is for the iPhone and it does not for the ipod ?!?
    Nothing is really clear.
    Can anyone answer:
    2)Did Jailbreaking it with ZiPhone Downgrade my iPod touch's bootloader?... All i clicked was the Jailbreak, iPod icon.
    3) If it did downgrade, is there a way back? like to upgrade it?
    4) I saw a screenshot of PWNED, and there 2 options : Downgrade bootloader to x.x, or Upgrade Bootloader to x.x?
    5)If there is not way back will this this hurt my iPod in the future?

    I'm really scared.... I LOVE MY iPOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No, it will not hurt your ipod. The post's that you have seen about the change from bootloader 4.6 to 3.9 are only for the iphone.

    You really don't have to worry about Bootloaders and Basebands unless you have an iPhone, it makes so little difference for iPod Touches that it's unnoticeable unless you scanned through every line of code when each version booted. There's no advantages or disadvantages to either, because Apple would only raise an eyebrow if they saw an iPhone with the old Bootloader on a new firmware (aka unlocked). Apple doesn't even look for it if you have an iPod Touch.

    The old bootloader is better than the new anyway and you can go back without a problem. They actually removed stuff from the 4.6 bootloader for security reason. Not a big deal!
