I just did the Jailbreak (first time for me) on my iPad. It is an iPad 1, and is running 5.1. From what I understand I have a tethered jailbreak. That is not a problem for me (now) as the iPad is wall mounted and only used to control my home, so I never reboot it.
I have the Cydia icon ( a gray icon with some internal shading) when I touch it the screen reacts briefly, sort of flashes but nothing happens.
If I try Safari it opens for a fraction of a second and then quits and returns to the springboard.
All the other apps which I have installed seem to be fine.
My apps semm to work
I really could use some assistance TIA,
