Thread: hold off on updating thru itunes

So it just seems like common sense that its gonna be harder to jailbreak your ipad if you update immediately thru itunes. the ipad also was put together in 2009 if you look at the time stamp on some of those pics that opened it so there is proabably a some what older boot rom on those ipads.
i think the first thing u do is install a blackrain-like app right out of the box. There is a preloaded software on the ipad so the firmware is proabably an older firmware. It makes no sense to just instantly update thru itunes to a newer firmware.
In another month hopefully i can buy a 3g ipad and instead of setting it up thru itunes there will be a new jailbreak that I can install instead of setting it up in itunes

here is a really basic question.
Is there already an OS on the ipad when it comes out of the box?
or does the itunes setup install everything?

You don't update it when you plug it in. You just plug it in and it asks you if you want to register it, assign it a name and set up syncing options.

but you have to be on itunes 9.1, although i think thats just for the ibooks support and general ipad stuff rather than to block a hack

Right but there's no update to the iPad... Just registration.

a little off topic here, but i've updated to itunes 9.1, using windows vista with a jailbroke (sn0wbreeze) 3gs. It works just fine, don't know about the ipad part.
BUT....my iphone syncs much, much slower now.
