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

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.

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.
