How to fix some mysterious problems.

My friend has an iPad 2 on iOS 8.3. It is the 3G version. We want to jailbreak it, but unfortunately it was always updated OTA since iOS 6. The ultimate goal would be to jailbreak, then use OdysseusOTA to get to iOS 6, and jailbreak again. Would this be possible? Are there any detailed guides regarding OdysseusOTA? Is anything going to fail because the OTA updated iOS? I've heard iOS 8 jailbreaks are not vulnerable to that.

Why don't you try it? You have nothing to lose. Either it will work or not......

OTA and 8.3 work fine. Go ahead and jailbreak it.

EDIT: Although, you did say it was OTA updated since iOS 6. I don't know if that changes anything, but it shouldn't.

Xamas: I have a lot to lose, if it fails I have to restore to 9.X which I certainly do not want. But if you dudes say it works with 8.3 OTA I'll give it a shot, guess I have no other option if I wanna jailbreak. while we're at this, can someone post a link to a detailed, step by step guide to using OdysseusOTA?
