    Like the title states...

    Can I jailbreak a couple of iPad 3s with Pangu on an existing 7.1.2 install, or should I do a clean install first?

    Thank you for any assistance.

    You will be able to jailbreak them as they are, but a clean restore is always best for battery life and trouble free operation.

    Does it make a difference if they were updated to 7.1.2 OTA like with evasion?

    Yeah. Has to be updated/restored via iTunes.

    Thank you for confirming what I knew was already true, but wanted to lazily get out the extra tedious steps. #

    No. Pangu works fine with OTA install.

    but is OTA update trouble free? in my experience, NO!

    - i had an iphone 4, updated to 7.1.2 from 7.1, no jailbreak, recovery bootloop, had to restore.

    - my brother updated iphone 5 from 7.1.1 to 7.1.2 OTA, no JB, it was fine but after a month the phone would freeze,i thought its a hardware issue but after a clean restore and now its ok.

    i will never update OTA, even if i wont JB!

    A clean install is suggested in case the jailbreaking process gets stuck, which happened to me once!
