    After trawling through eBay and finding most sellers don't respond or have updated their systems, I'm considering taking a risk and buying this refurbished unit from the Tesco Outlet. Anybody else bought one from here? Will Blue or silver be more likely to have 4.5 and below?

    Edit: took risk and bought it, it is 4.2.0-9E

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/16amelie16 I bought mine from him, It's silver. was brand new, his feedback shows he's sold quite a lot of 4.5 3ds XL's .. give him a message see is he will be getting anymore. You could always take the risk on the refurb and then just sell it on ebay if its not the right one.

    I got mine from the Cash Generators online store, just found a good deal and messaged the store and they told me it was on 4.2 within the hour. £100 for a 4.2 XL in good condition can't be complained at.

    OK, decided to take the risk and buy it. Turns out it's running 4.2!
    System was mint condition and from the tracking information looks like it was sent from a Swansea Tesco.
    The only complaint I have is no club nintendo for refurb units.
    Hope this is helpful.

    Well done. It came with 4.2.0?

    Yes, it came with 4.2.0-9E. From doing a bit of searching on here and hotukdeals it seems Tesco are still selling low firmwares in-store and on Tesco Direct, so I decided to take a calculated risk with the refurbs.
