    Hey guys,

    I don't really know where to ask this, so I'll just put it here:

    I ordered my iPad Air 2 a couple of weeks ago from a German shop. According to the delivery estimates I should get it by next week.

    Should I be afraid that it might ship with 8.1.1 and thus be un-jailbreakable? Or does it take a few weeks before Apple ships new devices with the newest iOS?

    Thanks in advance!

    I am genuinely curious, why does the version matter? Don't they jailbreak every version?

    No? They will have to find new bugs to take advantage of cuz Apple fixed their latest loophole to inject the jailbreak. Also they will not waste their resources on a x.x.1 release

    If your iPad already shipped it will not have 8.1.1 on it. It takes a few moments to download it's easy.

    Yeah, I ordered on October 25th at modeo.de. They don't have the 64GB space-gray LTE version in stock. Been waiting for ages now :(

    I'm guessing (hoping) it'll ship tomorrow or early next week. I hope it's too early for it to come with 8.1.1.
