    Anyone know what exactly the updated openiboot has different from the previously released one?

    Oops, I read it wrong.
    How do we uninstall the first release, and we install the new release the same, right? D:

    Directions from the README about how to uninstall:

    1. Start the openiboot console
    2. sudo ./oibc
    3. !openiboot-{your platform}.bin
    4. go 0x09000000
    5. Start the openiboot console again
    6. install
    7. The updated openiboot binary is now installed on NOR.

    UNINSTALLING OPENIBOOT
    ----------------------
    1. Start the openiboot console
    2. sudo ./oibc
    3. uninstall
    4. reboot Be aware that only commit ee57a7ec210da30b5a87fa4057e20896b258e699 (Nov 29) and after has the uninstall command.

    Edit: Well, just successfully updated openiboot. The update was to add the functionality to uninstall openiboot at will, since it conflicted with iTune's "Update Firmware" feature.

    Just download the newest package linked to at the site, and run the terminal commands from there.
    If you don't know how (files extracted to Desktop):
    sudo su
    cd /home/ubuntu/Desktop/openiboot-uninstall
