    Since I used ziPhone to JB/unlock/activate my iPhone, I understand that my bootloader was downgraded to 3.9.

    Will WinPwn be able to upgrade the bootloader?

    Will my 3.9 Bootloader pose any problems for me when 2.0 is released in June?

    By the way, how can I tell which bootloader version I have?

    There is nothing wrong with my iPhone, just curious as to weather or not WinPwn can upgrade my boootloader.

    Base band/Bootlodare upgrade downgrade stuff is all the work of the beautiful "Boot Neuter". Well, atleast I think so.

    In Mac OS X, you can use iNdependence to examine what boot loader you have.

    Not sure about Windows.

    Would you happen to know if my 3.9BL will pose any problems for the 2.0 firmware being released in June?

    I doubt the Boot Loader would interfere with future firmware.

    But I'd be careful none the less.

    Yes, BootNeuter can upgrade your non-fakeblank 3.9 back to 4.6.
    Bootloaders have no effect on firmwares.

    Thanks JFB.

    Any reason I should want to go back to 4.6?

    It depends, when was your phone made?
    If it was OOB 4.6, then you'll want to return to it.
    With a neutered bootloader though, you have all the advantages of both, so it doesn't really matter.
    For example, you can downgrade you baseband on 4.6 with .fls and .eep files, while you could only do that on 3.9 before.
    The only reason you'd want to return to your old bootloader is to avoid issues with Apple when returning.

    I was given my iPhone by my niece who purchased a Blackberry. It's a 4GB and was purchased a few weeks after the initial release. So I have no intentions of returning it to Apple for anything. So, if the bootloader will not interfere with any firmware updates, I think I won't worry about it at all.

    Well, any 4GB model is 3.9 anyway, possibly 3.8.
    It only interferes with unlocking though, so don't worry.
