    Ok, so basicly this is what will happen. How do i know this, because i have sat and watched it happen on this forum for every firmware released since 1.1.1.

    The Firmware will be leaked within the next few hours/days.
    People will download it.
    People will install it.
    People will find out that it is buggy and laggy due to the fact it is a BETA.
    People will want the jailbreak back and stabilty of 2.2.1.
    People will restore back to 2.2.1 jailbroken.

    So basicly, they spend all that time to try out 3.0 for a few days and then restore back.

    It happened with 2.0, and will probably happen for 3.0.

    So here is my idea.

    We use the idea of iPhone Linux.

    In terms of its duel booting.

    Something like this...

    Basicly, instead of booting into a linux OS, it boots into the 3.0 Firmware. Now im not sure how this would be done, im just sticking it out there. But basicly it would stop people having to write over their current 2.2.1 firmware just to test out 3.0 for a few weeks. And saving some time

    I think my "dream iPod" would have a triple-boot between 1.1.4, 2.2.1, and 3.0. It would be hard to do, but very nice upon completion.

    I think they managed to dual boot 1.1.4 and 2.0 a while back, correct me if I am in err.

    Chris Stroud had the idea of dual booting 2.x and 1.1.x a while back but since 2.0 and 3.0 have the same frameworks it might just work. Who knows.

    why would you want 1.1.4 if you have the current firmware?

    That's a great idea. I hope that does come true, because I want to be curious enough to get 3.0, but not loose everything on 2.2.1. Nice idea.
