    Why Is Jailbreaking such a big deal?

    I realize that hacking your iPad voids the warranty so before I buy an extended one I'd like to know the
    upside to doing it. What can you do after jailbreaking that you couldn't do before?

    Hi, and welcome to the forum.

    Yes, jailbreaking voids your warrenty - while the jail break is on the iPad. However, it can be easily removed, thus restoring your iPad to stock/out-of-the-box state. This means that, should you need warranty work, you can remove any/all jail break software and none will be the wiser.

    For the second part of your question, may I suggest you grab a snack and your favorite beverage and have a read through all the stickies here in the Hacking section, beginning with this one: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacki...ed-2011-a.html

    They'll give you a good idea why we jail break and what you can do with it.

    Good luck and welcome again.

    A question I asked before, still no answer - will jail breaking make your iPad less secure than before, i.e. will would-be hackers/viruses/worms now find it easier to mess with your Ipad?
