    I have a 1.1.2 OOB upgraded to 1.1.3. And I just downloaded iLibertyX to check it out. I saw the "Unlock" tick box and the "Unlock with 3.9FB". So I know that 3.9FB is reversible and all, but what happens if I tick just the "unlock" box and leave the "3.9fb" alone? what bootloader will I end up with?

    Read the part about date of production and BL, particularly... if you started with 1.1.2, you probably already have BL 3.9 (and not 4.6), and this fakeblank / recoverable issue is not an issue for you (i.e. you aren't downgrading your BL to begin with; you just end up leaving it alone).

    Oh dear...! you're right!
    I've ALWAYS assumed that my bootloader is 4.6. I think this is partly because I assumed all 1.1.2 is 4.6 cuz of the tremendous difficulty and delay in unlocking that firmware.
    again, out of curiosity, why was there a delay back then?

    I'm not familiar with what took so long to unlock 1.1.2 ... maybe BL4.6 was released during the 1.1.2 timeframe?

    I got all worked up over this issue while I was waiting for my refurbished iPhone, and of course, mine was from October and it had BL3.9 on it, and I was worked up over nothing! :eek:

    That's odd. Seems a couple of weeks too early to have 4.6, according to the numbers jav4564 and others posted. But good for you, I guess? You can at least *try* to preserve 4.6 (not that it's known to do anything special).
