    Hey guys, bought a refurbished iPad 3 and it came today and to my surprise it came with 5.1.1 instead of the latest software. If I wanted to jailbreak would you recommend installing 6.1.2? I have seen talks about doing an install via a restore or something along those lines and im not sure how to do that.

    Is it safe to install via the air or should I do it through the alternate method?

    No, not over the air.
    Plug it to itunes and hit restore.
    It will restore it to the latest 6.1.2 and then you can use evasi0n to JB it.

    First, download the entire OS image over iTunes and then click "Restore" instead of update. Do not do an update over the air.

    Just connect the iPad, hit Restore and iTunes will do it all on its own. No need to interfere.

    Thats what I was looking for lol. I didnt need to do this for my iP5 when i jailbroke so I never really looked up the other method. Also wasn't familiar with the way you described it lol sounded alot more confusing than it was :p
