Okay, granted I am a newbie to Apple products. I got my ipad 2 in April, I could have jailbroken it, but at the time i didnt know anything about that. So I wound up missing the boat on jailbreaking and I am kicking myself in the butt every day over that. But............lately I have been reading up and watching videos on iOS 5 and its arrival looks pretty exciting. So my question is, without me knowing anything about Cydia apps, is jailbreaking really that much better than the 200 new features that iOS 5 claims? I am not trying to bash jailbreaking I just honestly want to know, "is it really that much better?"
Thanks for any replies.
