im paul im 28 from the uk and i got my 1st 32gb ipad yesterday (06/05/2011) my 1st apple device ever, yest thats right i dont even own an ipod
now i linked my pad and itunes but told it not to auto update and turns out my pad is running 3.2.2 (7B500)
now should i update to a newer firmware before i start jailbreaking it? if so what firmware version do you recommend?
if i update firmware what do i gain or lose,if anything? also is it true that after jailbreaking you lose functions? if so what?
after a quick read im thinking unteathered is what i want for ease of use so what is the safest, ultra noob friendly process?
many thanks in advance
p,s im now just about to flash a new custom gingerbread rom to my desire hd but dont hate on me because its android i got enough love for both os

Sorry I can't help you but if you contact Tim from Scotland, he will be able to fix you up.
well iv decided to update to 4.3.3 via itunes then use redsn0w to jailbreak as the only reason i want to jailbreak it is for xbmc but that requires 4.1+
my pad is downloading the update via itunes as we speak so wish me luck
will report back once iv finshed or failed lol
Here's the welcome from 'Tim in Scotland' but it's probably Leigh, our jail breaking expert you want to 'speak to'. I'll move this thread to jail breaking and hopefully he'll see it...
Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!
Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.
Have fun and enjoy your iPad
If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

updated to 4.3.3 via itunes then used the redsn0w process and got it done 1st time with zero issues cant believe how easy it was
I think everyone has answered your question. I am not Leigh from Scotland, but he will probably say the same thing.
Go ahead and update to 4.3.3. It is an untethered jailbreak. Apple didn't change much so most apps should work.
Glad you got it all done on your own! It IS easy isn't it! That's why we have worked so hard on the sticky threads...

I am still trying to figure out why people don't want to jailbreak!
