This is a discussion on Jailbreaking Explained within the iPad Hacking forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; Originally Posted by f4780y Glad to hear you got jailbroken, although I am more than a little offended that your did not use our own ...
I tried to jailbreak my iPad with Pwnage tool. everything went fine until I got to the restore part on iTunes. I got a message saying they could not verify the restore with Apple and would not let me use the firmware file that I had saved from pwnage. Thoughts?
since my ipad is one of the original iPads, I figure I have nothing to lose by jailbreaking. I will replace it soon anyway. I am thinking of not replacing with an iPad but with something that does flash!
Diana, I'm not sure at this point it's with changing your mind, but most of the tablets out there that do flash do it poorly. So that's fine , but know what you're getting into.
As for the jailbreak, If you want to do it, needs a lot more troubleshooting. Did you use tinyumbrella when you were doing the jb?
There is no reason you can't get a jailbreak to work, none.
the only thing id like to be able to do is to have the use of flash on my ipad. is they a app for that? will I be able to use flash once i jb? or is this something that just cant be done on an ipad?

Just got my iPad 2 this week (to replace my beloved webOS TouchPad –nice device, but lacking in the apps dept, but that’s not important…) and I’m really enjoying it! So much so that I’m still considering if JB is worth it or not -feel free to persuade me ;-)
So, if one JBs their device and a week (or 6 months) later a new firmware is released by Apple, how easy is it to remove the JB in order to install the new FW? Or is it advisable to just wait for a JB solution for the new version instead?
Even then (waiting for a new JB), what’s the procedure to ensure a smooth FW update?
Many thanks in advance!
Jail breaks are easily removed in order to go to newer firmware from Apple. However, most people with jail broken apps wait for a jail broken version of the firmware so they can keep their iPads jail broke.
No one can convince anyone to jail break - it's a decision best made after lots of reading of what it entails and of the benefits received. We won't tell you to jailbreak, nor will be try to convince you. What we will do is provide assistance in the actual process.
Hope this helps.
Well in simple terms I'm a meat and potatoes guy. So jb ing my IPAD 2 I think ....... I won't be doing right now. As mentioned do a lot of reading about what jb does for you. In the last 3 days I've done a ton of reading and looking at videos on jbing, and have not found that it's something at this time I want to do. But as you can see others love it. It's your call.Originally Posted by Mickey330
I just deleted a conversation about piracy. Here's the quote from the rules concerning stealing apps:
Discussion of pirated or cracked applications and any methods associated with enabling their use, such as posting app or repository names, is forbidden on this forum. Piracy is illegal and the staff of iPadForums.net neither condone nor support it in any way.
Please - everyone - go and reread the rules! We have them for a reason and we are not kidding; members can (and have!) been banned for not following this rule.
No discussion of piracy or pirated apps - no exceptions.
P.S. Thanks to those who attempted to reason with the thief...
