I see.
But i hope this is not done only because of the airline issue, and that
there are other reasons that it useful to boot with firmware unloaded.

Because as far as the airline issue is concerned, we should not take it tooo
seriously. As long as we have a working solution it is fine. Not many people
will use it anyway.
U see my point?

Also, if it is smth simple we can quickly implement is for Update.1.
