I currently have and iPad 3 iOS 7.0.4 jailbroken and and iPhone 5S iOS 7.0.5 jailbroken and I thought about buying an iPad Air would this be installed with iOS 7.1 or a lower jailbreakable firmware

If you bought the device brand new...ios 7.1 would be loaded.

@Tellekit not for certain, it depends when it was made. If it was made before iOS 7.1 launch, then it would not have 7.1 on it.

Not likely. Those devices are sealed and apple isn't allowed to open it unless you ask them to help you set it up. It will have whatever iOS was current when it was manufactured which is likely 7.0.2, 7.0.4 or 7.0.6. The only time you would get a really new iOS is when they run out of older stock.

I didn't know about this patch, I have 7.0.4. I guess it's good to read a lot of these postings. You find out a lot on this board.

I will be more than happy with iOS 7.0.6

...great answers above, but the easiest way is to buy from a non apple, non authorized distributor, just a random guy on ebay, and ask him when he shipped in the stock. Good luck bro!
