It maybe better, especially if someone is not so Apple experienced, like me for example, to wait a while and see how things coming along with these earlie Jailbreaks and wait if there aren't more infos on how to make it work without issues.

    I wait.
    A lot of these issues are caused by people not following instructions or listening to people's advice.

    I Jailbroke my iPad on my room mates computer (but I forgot to backup) using the CLI tool, worked fine.

    Restored from the cloud, then Jailbroke my iPad (again) and my iPhone 4s using the windows tool and again worked flawlessly. the only problem I had was the blank icons, I restored using iTunes and re-Jailbroke again fine (this issue is resolved now by installing a tweak from cydia apparently)

    Each time I backuped the iPad then erased all settings and data using the settings (if it's already Jailbroke and you have to restore for any reason do it from iTunes rather than the settings way otherwise it hangs) jailbreaks were all flawless.

    I was trying the jailbreak on an XP Pro Service Pack 3 & although the computer detected the IPAD2, the jailbreak program didn't ever find the IPAD2.

    I have Windows 7 on another computer and will try it. Is there something I am doing wrong?

    Please advise.

    Thank-you,

    I have not tried the jailbreak yet but the news says the break app only works on OS X and a windows version is it he works. Make sure you are using the correct version.

    For those of you having trouble with the GUI version of this jailbreak, do a google search for the command line version. I did it last night in about 7 minutes with no issues at all.

    All you have to do is coronet your iPad to iTunes and select restore. After iTunes is done, you'll have a stock iPad.

    Good luck.

    Nope.

    Just do a backup right before you jail break - just in case you have to restore during the JB process. But, the jail break should "merely" put a Cydia icon on your iPad; it'll change nothing else and your iPad will look just the same. You will even be able to hook it to iTunes as you did before the jail break.

    Hope this reassures.

    It froze and closed itself, now when I launch it it says that the jailbreak previously failed, and it will try to repair it. Then it does, says to unplug and retry. Then I retry and it just says again that the last jailbreak failed, it will try to repair it.

    I have the same problem. Marilyn please help
