    I was going to buy the Ipad2 tomorrow from Argos (uk), what are the chances it will still be iOS 4.3.3 and not 4.3.4 ?

    I mean do they send all the old stock back when an update comes out or just sell it. I would really like to jailbreak and will only be able to do this if it is still on 4.3.3

    Thanks

    It will defiantly be on 4.3.3. It would be a waste of time to send them back, unpackage them, update them, re seal them, and ship them again. Only iPads that were made after the update will have 4.3.4.

    You'll have to be careful in registering your iPad through iTunes to avoid updating the OS.

    Thanks guys, so can someone tell me how to go about registering my new ipad? Do I just need to be careful not to accept requests to update or will it want to update automaticly without asking me? I have a jailbroken iphone 4 so i know the basics, I think I just need to take my time and not get click happy while in itunes ;)

    Exactly. A box will pop up saying that a new firmware is available. Just make sure you click cancel

    since you will not have shsh saved, i must remind you to be careful with your 4.3.3.

    No, iFaith does not work on the iPad2.

    So, yeah, GiZZeRR, do be careful with how you "play" with it. If you have to restore, you'll end up on 4.3.4, which is not jail breakable for the iPad2.

    With that caution: Congrats on a successful jailbreak and have fun!
