    He doesn't say that the baseband will be downgraded. Not sure about the unlock possibilities, but you may be able to JB.

    The baseband won't be downgraded because, as everyone says, it is impossible to downgrade the baseband. This solution will just sign the 3.0.x firmware, allowing you to do a restore from iTunes, just like you can for the 3G.

    I think a lot of people would rather a 3.1 JB, but this is great for people that can't live without their JB stuff. Kudos to Saurik.

    i upgraded to 3.1 foolishly by rushing in... lost tethering which i do use quite a bit and a few jailbreak tweaks. (blank dock, %age next to battery, file downloads of 10meg+ for podcasts/apps).

    So i downgraded (iPhone 3g) back to 3.0.1. 3.1 doesnt add enough to warrant upgrading to for me personally... not really bothered about phishing/genius mixes.
