    Amazing, we can dual-boot an iPhone, but does it work on iPoT?

    Hahaha true enough. Anyone brave (stupid) enough to try this? It works, and has for a while, just risky.

    Whoever thought this concept up is a genius. It's the same concept as SwapTunes, but for firmwares, and it means that we can gain full read-write access to pretty much any firmware, past or present; as long as past firmwares are jailbreakable, this method cannot be patched.

    The advantage is mainly for developers, as it allows them to run a modifiable, unjailbroken firmware in parallel with a previously jailbroken firmware. From there, they can find exploits that will allow the firmware to be jailbroken.

    I would try this, but their instructions to me are like an aztec language to a latin amerca hater. (not me nothing against them, just a medaphor)
