    So what? They open it up, flash the bootloader AND replace the backface with a new one to reflect a new serial number (since they don't make 4gb versions anymore)? Sounds like a lot of work to resell the hardware and work cuts into the margins. Seeing as how these are refurbished phones, I'm sure there aren't that big margins to begin with. Where am I going with this? Well, I'm wondering if they actually open the phone up or simply are able to flash the bootloader using the dock connector? If they do the latter, then we should be able to as well.

    I got all 4.6BL as well. I am also wondering if they actually flash the bootloader for every phone. It seems like alot of work for a refurb phone.

    did you check the bootloader manualy (i mean the complicated way with an allready jailbreaked phone, winscp, putty & bbupdater) or just the firmware? As i'm in germany mine will take another week to arrive...

    i still dont get why apple goes this complicated way for a small couple of refurbished phones, especially when the last shippment of refurbished iphones two weeks ago had the old bootloader...

    mh anyone tried to jailbreak and activate them allready? hope at least this still works

    4GB refurbs are only availble for shipment into the US.

    I ordered my 4gb refurb after thanksgiving and it was a week 45 with the old bootloader. I think the late model phones were demo models at European stores and to prevent unlocking they gave them the new bootloader. Its totally random as to where the phone came from prior to being refurbished so some get lucky like me and other get screwed. In the end buyer beware.

    Also I don't think the USA apple store will ship the iPhones international.
