You'd need to replace the bootloader.

The SVN version doesn't do that. I've been using the r20605 bootloader
since April with no problems to speak of, but the most recent sansapatcher
and .mi4 releases still seem to be from December '08.

Anyone know if there's ever going to be a new sansapatcher release? Or
will the current rbutil install a new bootloader? (I've never gotten
anything but a SIGFPE from rbutil, so I haven't a clue.)
