if a newly purchased comes with the newer build, is it possible to achieve s-off on that?

You 100% sure? I'm deciding what to do first. Update or root/s off

Yes I took the update and didn't have any problems. Just got the phone last night, took the update, s-off'ed and installed a custom recovery. All worked perfectly.

Thanks. I hope the process is just as smooth on a device that has factory loaded the new build.

Well I didn't have the ota but I did s-off and root feels nice being able to install a custom ROM.
