Long time lurker, first time poster.
We purchased a few iPads at work to see if we can use them in our environment, not as much for work related purposes for us, the IT department but mostly for support purposes for our users. We support the iPhone and once the floodgates were open, anything iDevice that apple comes out with has now fallen onto us to support.
So, one of these iPads is in my department. I have it currently. It was brand new, OS 3.2.1. I jailbroke it, enabled multitasking, installed a bunch of productivity business related software as well as fun stuff and it runs fantastic. It seems to me that for business purposes, the only way to get it widespread is to jailbreak it.
But I've got a problem. We are 5 people in my group, and everyone will have a go at the iPad for a few days or so to become familiar with it, its options and the like. I'm ready to pass it on to someone else but I will eventually get it back, and when I do I'd like to have the same setup I have currently.
If I restore it, it'll lock itself back. But if I restore from a previous jailbroken backup, that won't jailbreak it, won't it? If that is the case, all of the settings I have there currently, especially Backgrounder, will they still load? And if they do, they won't work, obviously, until I jailbreak it again, correct? And when I do, the settings will automatically apply and work, yes? Of course noone will update the software, i"ll make sure of that.
