    To those that have it (or don't and know the answer), what happens if you try and downgrade back to a lower firmware from 3.0? Also, does anyone know the point of this limitation? Thanks.

    I dont think there is a way to downgrade from 3.0

    Should have thought about it before upgrading to 3.0...

    No, that's just the thing- I don't want to jump into it when I can't go back.

    From what I understand, it just doesn't work. It fails.

    Has someone with 3.0 actually tried this yet? Would be extremely helpful if they did, many people would like to know. I would do it myself, but haven't been activated yet.


    ETA: So it appears DFU does not work (an error appears.) So if you install you're stuck with it.
