    Is it a possibility...?

    Is it a possibility that Apple could release iOS 4.3.4/4.4 for iPad 2 as soon as they know when @comex will release his JB for iPad 2 to stop future iPad 2's and to catch people out who stayed on 4.3 and who've not updated to 4.3.3?

    If so, is it worth the leap to iOS 4.3.3 now?

    Thanks

    You don't need to upgrade BUT you should save your SHSH Blobs for 4.3.3 now. See the sticky on how to do it. This allows you to upgrade to 4.3.3 if you are at a lower version regardless of whether Apple immediately release a 4.3.4 and stops signing 4.3.3, which you can be fairly sure they WILL do as soon as the JB is released...

    However, this advice is good for the WiFi only iPad2.

    If you have a 3G / CDMA iPad2, then you may need to think more carefully. We know that without a successful baseband install, the iPad2 update will fail and cannot be recovered, necessitating a restore to the latest version. So you cannot use SHSH Blobs to upgrade / downgrade a 3G / CDMA device.
    The best advice I can give is to wait until the JB is released and make a judgement call. Apple never close the signing window immediately. So, IF the JB is for 4.3.3 you can choose to upgrade to 4.3.3 and THEN Jailbreak. If you do it within a day or two there is no way Apple will have released a fix and stopped signing...

    Hope that helps.

    In order to patch an exploit you need to know what it is. They may go trough every inch of the system and still miss the one comex uses. If an upgrade comes out to block it, then it will be a couple of days between JB -> upgrade.

    And all things mentioned by Comex confirms (AFAIK) that 4.3.3 will be supported. so I would save the SHSH blob just as f4780y mentioned just in case apple throws a curveball
