    My situation is as follows....

    I was sent a refurb from Apple a couple days ago...the refurb 3gs has the old bootrom, but was upgraded to 4.0.

    Now I have to wait for god knows how long for the new bootrom JB even though I have the old.....talk about bad luck or what! lol

    From what I understand it all depends on whether or not she has the new or old bootrom....easiest way to tell the difference is go into Settings...general...about and check out the 4th and 5th digit of the serial number...if it's anything over 40 then she has the new bootrom and will have to wait until a new jailbreak comes out.

    Actually scrap all that..........now that she has a vinilla phone you'll have to wait anyhow, because the current jailbreak for 4.0 only works if you're ALREADY jailbroken and then install the custom firmware over top of it.


    Am I right everyone? Please help this guy as I've probably just confused the issue, sorry I'd erase what I wrote before but my backspace key is broke! LOL jokes...

    If she has her SHSH blob stored on saurik's server, she may be able to downgrade back.
