Hacking for reasons of more memory
I am sure this is out there and I have been reading but frankly I'm over reading threads and not exactly getting the info I want.
First, when I bought my ipad I thought I could get the hotspot hard drives and use it as basically a flash drive on a non hacked ipad. Upon reading, just seems like I can pull stuff from that hard drive and not upload to it. Am I wrong with that?
Second, I am not against hacking my ipad but if I don't have to then I would just rather not. But is there a USB drive that is true write to and download from without hacking? Also if I do hack my ipad everything I see says I have to supply the USB with power for it to work, is that true or are some flash drives capable? If the ipad is hacked can I used a hot spotted hard drive the way I first wanted too or still no?
I am hoping someone can answer this clearly with links so I can enjoy my ipad with unlimited space.
