Jailbroken... now what?
Hi all, my first post on this forum
I'm very new to Apple software so please forgive me if I'm asking seemingly simple questions. I have just bought a iPad with 4.2.1 and have jailbroken it using GreenPois0n RC6.1.
Did a bit of a Google search but it doesn't seem to answer my question... what is the full potential of a jailbroken iPad?
The applications on Cydia don't look that interesting, most of them seem to be themes and wallpapers.
I'm looking at doing some of the following things
1. Load .avi and .rmvb files on the iPad and be able to play them
2. Get flash support so I can view more youtbe videos and videos from other sites
What do you use your jailbroken iPad for? Just want to get some ideas what can be done with them?
Thanks for any advice.
Hi. Have a look here.
Why would you want to start anywhere else? :D
YourTube is the only one that would interest me since youtube appears to have pulled the plug on MiTube :(

No....after installing desired app, cydia should prompt you to either "Return to cydia", "Restart Springboard", or "Reboot Device".
I did reboot for PullToRefreshMail, but then I installed BytaFont and a couple of fonts afterwards. Not seeing a difference in the fonts....the list in Settings only shows the defaults.
Did you open the bytafont app and goto the "basic" tab and choose the desired font and let it respring?

aaaahhh...that's what i was missing :o
i'm still learning which ones require me to go into a separate app. thanks!
Shhhhhhh..... Listen. You should now be hearing angels singing..... Or perhaps a cross between Fergie and Jesus singing.
