    Just bought an iPhone 4 32gb at a busy Apple store. Got lucky (for once) and got a 4.0.1 (box was still sealed)!

    Yay! Jailbroken already, pending TSS request, ran TinyUmbrella and it's got 4.0.2 SHSHs saved (obviously no 4.0.1 since Apple doesn't sign that version anymore, boo hiss).

    But at least I can set it back up how I had my 3Gs on 4.0.1 JB'n and patiently wait on 4.1 JB release. I was so sure I was going to be unJB'n for a few weeks.

    So.....moral of the story, 4.0.1 does still float around out there, even at Apple stores.

    Now....just watch something crash and make me have to restore to 4.0.2 (where's a wood desk when you need it)....

    Yep - I unwittingly updated to 4.0.2 before JBing, and thought I was stuck. When I had to trade in my iPhone for a new one due to a technical problem (No SIM issue), the new replacement was on 4.0.1 allowing me to JB it. I wouldn't be surprised at all if a great number of the stock that Apple stores have now are still on 4.0.1 due to shipping prior to the 4.0.2 update (the "genius" at the Apple store confirmed this, too).
