    There aren't any, any anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. Some have said there is a virus threat to jailbroken iPhones, but if you get infected just restore it. It doesn't void your warranty to jailbreak because you can ALWAYS restore it to factory defaults through iTunes. The only way it could ever void your warranty is if you took it in for service and they noticed it was jailbroken, don't be a dummy and restore it before taking it to the store.

    Unless you are a complete and utter moron, there isn't any reason not to jailbreak your iPad or iPhone.

    Pro: you can run programs not approved by Apple.
    Con: You are vulnerable to bugs and issues from apps you download. You also can void your warranty.

    I jailbroke my 3gs and as a result my battery doesn't last nearly as long. Regardless, I don't regret jailbraking. Does anyone know if this is the case with jailbraking iPad?

    It depends what apps you run. I believe at there is one that let's you run stuff in the background. That could eat up your battery if the background apps are busy.

    I feel like I have longer battery life since I jail broke, but I think it's really because I started operating at a lower brightness.

    I was quite the nervous nelly before i jailbroke mine, but it was pretty easy. The only problem I have is not knowing too much about the apps available on Cydia and Rock. But I haven't had time to do much research, so that's more of a personal matter.
