    What i know is, in the UK, the iPhones which are demoed at the apple store and carphonewarehouse are all 4GB ones.

    What happened was I have a friend who works in carphonewarehouse and somehow managed to get one unit out. He asked me to unlock it for him and I found out that it was the new 4.6 bootloader.

    Based on the serial number, it was a week 30 phone, so it should be a refurbished 4GB iphone.

    So, yes, the 4GB refurbished ones have the new 4.6 bootloader.

    All UK iphones ran V1.1.2 and BL 4.6. These are different from US refurbs.

    Yea, but it was a 4GB iphone, and in the UK, there's no such iphone for consumers.

    Alright here it is, the moment you have been waiting for...........

    Week 45 Refurbished 4gb Iphone as received from apple FW 1.1.1 with BL 3.9

    I went the Upgrade, downgrade, unlock with Jailbreakme, anysim 1.2.1u, Oktoprep, upgrade to 1.1.2 Route to unlock.

    now i have a unlocked 1.1.2 running a T-mobile sim with the T-zones hack for free EDGE all running on my 10$ a month dealer plan.

    and yes all the extra crap like youtube and such is working.

    So lesson in all this is buy up them refurbished phones fast as you can, or else someone else will.

    Its been a while since refurbs were available. I wouldn't be so quick in jumping into the new batch they release. You may get burnt! Wait for someone else to be the guinea pig.

    There were refurbs available last week, so that aint too long ago. Hell thats when i ordered mine.

    they mostly stopped making the 4GB before the switch to the new BL, or right around that time period. since they switched to only the 8gb model.

    mine is a week 45 and it was BL3.9 I dont think there many 4GB models with higher serial numbers than mine, at least not that im aware of in the US.

    I think they used the 4gb models for demos in the stores, then they refurb em and send em back out. Im under the impression that they flash the BL at the factory and its not that easy to do, so its not something they worry about for the small number of phones they refurbish.

    Now in europe its a whole different ballgame and who knows where those 4GB demo phones end up, and maybe those are the rare ones in the US with the BL4.6

    in the end its a total crapshoot, but hell some of the new 8GB phones are the old BL so its all random. Ide put better odds on getting a 4GB phone with the old BL than a new one however.
