    got one last night from target, $404+tax after Staples PM and 10% off using cartwheel for a 64.

    came with 8.4 and perfect screen :D

    so happy.

    was trying 9.0 on mini4, and not bad for x.0 release, but certainly some quirks and not sure if a8 related or not but i like having more power anyways

    Quantum leap from mini2 16 on 8.4 :D

    I might be hesitant to update to iOS 9 on the pad even after jailbreak, 8.4 coupled with 2GB isn't a reload fest,

    it wasn't on 9.0 on mini4/a8 either, but still. the fact that its smooth on mature version of iOS 8 is whats winning my heart

    this thread may be useless but i wanted to express my joy

    I had to update mine to iOS9 to get that new split view.

    Split view is nice when I was trying it on mini4, but not enough to lose out on freedom :D

    9.0 wasnt bad either but still an x.0 release, not on the mature end of its cycle.

    for me at least

    I had a 32 air 1 on att and did an insurance claim. Deductible declined to $99 and they sent me an air 2 64 to replace it. It was on 8.4 I was so glad. Can't wait for 9 to be jb but I'm keeping 8.4 for now. Got ios 9 on a spare iPhone 6 to play with

    Got a refurb iPad Air 2. iOS 8.4 on it. JB'd it right away. Couldn't be happier. Will wait for iOS 9 JB.

    Also enjoying my new iPad Air 2 on 8.4 JB. Any tweak similar to split view?

    Have to add to this now. I got an iPad Air 2 yesterday at T-Mobile with 8.1 on it.

    The PC at work is refusing to work with Taig v1.2.0. Get's stuck at 30% and does not advance Was going to try on Win 7 on my MBP tonight but got busy doing something else so probably will try that tomorrow.

    Yeah, this may be an unpopular opinion but on the latest iPads, I wouldn't even jailbreak. iOS 9 is a huge improvement and there is nothing that multitasks as well as split view (no, Multiplexer doesn't even come close).

    On an iPhone it's a totally different story. Jailbreaking is great there.

    DAMN! Guess the PC at work is crap!

    Loaded TAIG up on the MBP and it was done in less than three minutes!

    Jailbroken iPad Air 2 on iOS 8.1!

    Now that I am 6 Plus-less (sold it), and onto 6s+ stock until next JB, I'm even more glad I got my air2 :D

    Same. My Air 2 is making this bearable. I'm finding that because it's an iPad I'm using it differently, but that the jailbreak is allowing me to do that more easily than it being stock.
