No, as long as you use _GPLv2_, whether it's GPLv2 or later or GPLv2 and
only GPLv2, tivoization is possible.  'GPLv3 or later' would not allow

Unless you have an 'or later' cause already in place, or you have the
permission of the copyright holders, you cannot unilaterally substitute
GPLv3 for GPLv2.  That's what the whole problem is about.

I don't see much point in continuing this discussion further because I
don't think you understand what the real problems (or solutions) are, or
what the requirements of the GPL (in any version) are.
