    The chips are flashed at the factory before they even put them in the phones.

    It's not likely he "knows" that, but it is very likely. If they verify their flash components are functional, which I'm sure they do, they'd be verified on a specialized test bench. It would be easy to flash them with iOS4 at that time, since they have full access to the parts. No iTunes or dock connector setup required.

    It's logical, if you think about it. Otherwise, if the flash was completely blank, how would they boot?
