    Default Jailbreak/upgrade iOS before activation.
    Is it possible to take a new iPhone 6 and update the iOS to 8.1 then jailbreak it before activating it?

    And just why would you do that?

    I am giving my wife a new iPhone 6 Plus for Christmas. I was hoping to upgrade the OS to 8.1 and jailbreak it for her before I give it to her. Don't want to turn off her existing phone first. Sorta spoils Christmas surprise.

    Pfffff, nice idea, but I don't think it's possible....but, did you get that new phone already? I mean if not, there is a very good chance it will come with 8.1 installed.

    Sorry. Apple told me it comes with iOS 8.0, and needs to be upgraded after activation.

    Well, sorry, I am from Europe, so I don't know exactly how you do that in US, but why don't you buy cheap prepaid SIM from the same carrier, activate it and jailbreak it. Signing window for 8.1 is still opened, but I wouldn't wait any longer.
