Interested in Original Kin Two (not TwoM)

I would like to get an original Kin Two, not the TwoM.  It needs to be in extremely good condition.  I've been keeping an eye on eBay, but if anyone has any other sources, please let me know.  Thanks!

Original TWO, huh? Welp. Craigslist/eBay might be your only hope for the hardware. If you want the SOFTWARE for the KIN TWO (not m model), here's how:


1. Get a TWOm.

2. Activate it.

3. Before you put ANYTHING on it, turn it off.

4. Hold R and B on the keyboard.

5. Turn on the power while holding R and B.

 

6. You will see it say "UPDATING MODEM-DON'T REMOVE BATTERY". Let it do the magic and reboot..

7. Enjoy KIN OS 1.0!

I've wondered what the original KIN Two was like.  But if I press R and B and power and load the old software, how would I get back to the TwoM?  What would I lose by going to the Kin Two?

 

Thanks, Dave.
