    I know that many of you know that but i would like to share the GOOD news with you guys.

    A huge bug's been found in version 5.8 of the iPhone 3G Bootloader. And as any dutiful brewer would do, GeoHot checed it out to see how far he can exploit it and found that this bug could actually let him downgrade the Baseband. And let him, it did!

    What this means, therefore, is that with this exploit, you can now downgrade with every firmware version. There's a catch to this picture-perfect scenario, however. Most people who could most use this downgrading powers own an iPhone with 5.9 Bootloader. Here, the exploit cannot be fully executed. GeoHot is optimistic, though, that he can run the 5.8's ramloader on the 5.9 iPhones.

    He outlines the things you'll need to run the exploit over at his blogspot page. You can get there by clicking on the source link below.
