This means they will give me a refurbished iPhone 5 with with new iOS 7 firmware
Is there a way for me to downgrade this refurbished iOS7 device to 6.1 or anything really? I am not a fan of iOS7 and I enjoy a good jailbreak. Is there any possible way?
I know of tinyumbrella and iFaith, by the way. But is there a way to get the SHSH blobs from the new device?

Damn. That is really frustrating. Even if this phone was used on a previous iOS version? Tinyumbrella cannot get the SHSH blobs?
What about in the rare instance where the device was previously jailbroken on a 6.x version before it was given back to Apple?

The refurbished replacement may not be on the latest firmware (iOS 7). When the genius asks if you want him to prepare/restore the backup on the replacement, just decline. Otherwise, s/he will upgrade it to the latest. Good luck
