    any chance the refurb iPad 2's at apple.com are still on firmware 5.01? not 5.1?
    Anyone buy one recently?

    Considering this is the hacks forum, probably for jail breaking reasons.

    jb of course. gets harder and harder with the A5. Some say the 5.1 jb is eminent, others say could be months like the iPad 2 was.
    plus Apple will release an update to 5.1 soon for the 'new' ipads..

    Just got one and it has 5.0.1. I'm not updating until 5.1 is JB.

    Does it matter? It won't matter what model it's from. It depends on when you get it.

    I received 1 black and 1 white 16gb Wifi Only refurbs last Wednesday and both were on 5.0.1.

    Sounds like it's a very good time to pick up a refurb.

    Has anyone received a refurb with 5.1? I've got one on its way and am concerned I won't be able to JB it.

    Since you've got one on its way, why not wait until it arrives and look at it yourself?

    Seems like Apple was too busy getting the iPad 3 ready to mess much with the discounted 2s. I miss the jailbreak, but comparing the 3 and 2 screens together, now all I can see on the 2 is the square pixels. And the color on the 3 is striking. Amazing when you have the same page views side by side.
    But the 2 is still a great tablet, no doubt.

    I am sure 5.0.1 for now. They ship them crazy fast. Left China on the 26th, arrived here in Joplin the 28th (today).

    I think I had some back luck in my order--my refurb iPad 2 is coming via UPS ground from California to the East Coast and is taking a week. The smart cover ordered a day later came via Fed Ex from China and arrived to my door in a day and a half. Both were ordered with Standard Shipping.

    By now it'll either be 4.3.5 or 5.1
    There is no chance that it will still be on 5.0.1

    That makes no sense whatsoever.

    How does that make no sense? I ordered my fiancé an iPad 2 and it had 4.3.5 (it was the latest iOS before iOS5). I have heard others mention that they purchased an iPad 2 that had iOS 5.1. If that doesn't make sense to you then I really don't know what to say.
