    Yes u will still be on the same firmware. Otherwise this would be a big thing everyone past 5.3.2 would be doing!

    Fair enough thank you. Now is there any possibility of a forced downgrade in the future?

    yes....but at the point of it being possible it wouldnt matter as the hacks for 5.5.0 would have to be out anyway
