A simple question about IOS updates
I'm guilty of wanting to jailbreak my ipad 2... Just bought it, and still sealed.
Is that taboo here, or can I still ask my question?
Oh well, If I get banned - sorry in advance.
My question is related to ios updates. ie when you first plug your ipad 2 into your computer from brand new, will it update your ios to 4.3.5 (or latest) immediately, or does it set up as 4.3.3 and then give you options to update?
If it is automatic, I won't be able to jailbreak it since ios 4.3.3 is the most commonly supported for a wifi model, according to recent sources. And if it is automatic, is there a way to prevent it from happening?
Thanks for the help!

It is not automatic. It will ask if you want to update to the latest software. Not only can you say no, you can stipulate that iTunes never asks again.
For the record...I bought a new 3G a little over a month ago that was still 4.3.3. Most people who post here lately have not been so fortunate and I doubt it's likely at this point.

Wow. I just sold a 4.3.3 black one today because I wanted white. Does being in Australia make a difference? Lol maybe I should ask for my black one back!

Just plug it in to your pc and iTunes and you can upgrade it to latest version
It is just an inventory issue nothing more nothing less .
Those laser eyes are staring right through the OP's needs. Col! He wants to JB, so updates to 4.3.5 are a no no. He is in search of inventory issues!
