    Jailbreak ~ explain it to me... Like I'm a four year old.

    What it says in the title. Should everyone Jailbreak their iPad? Does it hurt the iPad, is it vulnerable to software issues? What is it? Is it a programme, or a generic term for adding other sorts of programmes/apps?

    And finally, does a mum like me, who uses it for writing, web browsing, music etc., need it? I do want to upload a film to the iPad and can't, and yes, I've read all the threads and downloaded handbrake. Thank you!! Xxx

    However read this and the stickies as well...

    Technical Definition of Jailbreak:
    The iPhone, iPod touch & iPad hack that allow users to gain access to the entire Unix filesystem. In Unix terms, this refers to changing the root of the directory tree to /.

    Understandable Definition of Jailbreak:
    A hack that gains access to areas of the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad that users aren’t supposed to mess with. Typically, this is an immediate prelude to either installing cool programs, unlocking the handset for use with another cellular network, or both.

    Through jailbreaking, you are able to add additional applications to your iDevice. It allows you to do so by adding an application called Cydia to your iDevice. It also allows modding (changing) of your iDevice application icons, wallpaper, dock, status bar, chat bubbles, weather backgrounds, keyboard….etc.

    Thank you. Sorry for posting in wrong part of the forums but I thought it was an iPad 2 question and didn't realise jailbreaking had it's own bit.
