Companies are smart with this sort of thing, even if you somehow acquired one chances are even then there is the small possibility the firmware would have have been tampered with during or after packaging before the shipping.

    I might be buying a used CUH-1003A / B01. The user says he factory reset it. How can I know what firmware it ends up on? He does not want to start and look at firmware number. Can it be less than 4.05? If he once upgraded can it be reverted?
