    Don't think this will work if the new fw burns an efuse. (5.1.0 doesn't). Then you might have a brick!

    Proof your system was on 5.1.0 before starting?

    Yeah this fw is fine, other firmwares that do burn efuse's won't work without patching

    Would there be any reason to downgrade, though? From what I've seen, there's no discernable difference in terms of modding.. Unless I've missed something.

    Cool! I wonder is anyone has a list of other updates that didn’t burn fuses.

    Exactly. It's still good to know we can downgrade between efuses.. After they're burnt, that door for those FWs are shut. :o

    5.1.0= magical update... also sounds like a good place to start making a custom firmware cloned from actual new update

    fake news. No proof didn't happen. lol is this for real? didn't think about showing it was on a higher fw? That would have been my very first thought. Either way I believe u.
