    What are IPL files? And what happens when when a down-grader corrupts them? Is that something the 3.03 GTA down-grader does?

    IPL = Initial Program Load.

    It's the thing which loads everything, kinda like the BIOS for PCs.

    Don't know much about how downgraders work - I assume they write the IPL of a lower firmware perhaps.

    to the best of my recollection and knowledge when a downgrader is ran it doesn't change the IPL completely as the IPL still needs to point pretty much at the same files, certain files are redirected by the downgrader though and this can cause corruption of the IPL which then causes a brick.
