    If it's at the walmart right now, it has 4.3.3 on it. 4.3.4 was released just yesterday. That iPad was shipped before this release and they don't upgrade unsold units in stores.

    You could still jailbreak on 4.3.3 even after apple stops signing 4.3.3. You simply won't be able to save your hashes for 4.3.3 allowing you to downgrade.

    Yes, but if you ever have to restore, you won't be able to restore to 4.3.3. You'll be stuck on 4.3.4 or whatever's current at that time with no jailbreak.

    Most likely 4.3.4. You would have to buy from a reseller to get one with 4.3.3 on it. (walmart, best buy, etc)

    He's right, Apple will send it with the latest upgrade. They put stuff in the box once someone has bought it, and that's why you'll always get the latest updated machine when buying from Apple

    You can always mod your hosts file even after apple stops signing 4.3.3

    If I was to go to a reseller (Bestbuy, target, walmart, etc.) now and to buy a iPad 2, what would be the likely hood of getting on with 4.3.3?

    Damn, should I risk the chance? There's a 10% restocking fee.
