    What benefits does this update have for an iPad2 (running 5.1.1 at the moment)?

    Well Rudy, I would say its slightly faster, and my battery life is longer (slightly)

    BUT, the real reason why I would want to update is this, it's an up to date iOS that is Jailbreakable (for now) so at the very least you are going to be running an iPad on the latest operating system.

    The only problem is, you may lose some of your Cydia apps from the 5.1.1 Jailbreak, this is because some apps are still be updated, so I would possibly make a note of your free Cydia apps, as these aren't stored within Cydia, once jailbroken go through the apps one by one, checking to see if the info remarks on an update to iOS6, this will save time with crashes because of conflicts etc

    I hope all goes well if you choose to update Rudy, come back and let us know how you get on.

    Finally my iPad 2 working perfect on 6.1 jb maybe better from 5.1.1. He only cons is google maps (the app is only for iPhone). Better and faster animations in some apps and very good battery life ( after 3cyrcles)

    I'm happily JB'd on 5.1.1, but a part of me would like to upgrade to the latest IOS and JB. A concern I have is with an app I use a lot- TIVO. This app was updated a while back, and the update has JB detection. I never updated the app because of this. In addition, I have many apps that have had updates that I never performed. If I upgrade to the latest IOS, and do a restore from backup, will my apps automatically update to current, or will they remain at the version I have currently installed. I assume they'll remain the same, but would like to know for sure. Appologies if this has been asked before.

    Thanks.

    Apps aren't automatically updated, you have to manually tap the update button for the update to install.

    iPad 3 wifi/4G 64gb, and iPhone 4 (both were running 6.1) successfully JB last night. No issues whatsoever. Nice to have another "app store" (cydia) available! Super easy to do. Harmless.

    Not sure if this has been previously answered but why is it that if the devices are capable of doing all these awesome things, why must you jailbreak in order to release them? It's like having a car and not being able to use the power windows or Bluetooth radio. I don't understand the concept of making something for a customer to purchase and then not allow them full functionality.

    As mentioned in your other post over on iPhoneForums, Apple likes total control over their devices unlike Android's open source. Since everything's locked up, you'll need to jailbreak your device to allow certain things to run on the device.

    I understand the "control" thing, but if that's the case just don't equip the device. It's not like you have to take it to an apple location to have them jail break it, so why put all these awesome features on the device and not make them accessible? I don't have this feature on any of my devices, however others in my household do and all I can say is; jealousy is an awful thing :-(

    What you're missing is the fact that an iPad is a computer to which Apple has restricted access to the main file system. So, it's not as if the "awesome features" aren't there - it's that a jail break gets around Apple's restrictions.

    The restrictions are in place (by Apple) to ensure security and optimal operation of the iPad - in Apple's view. All a jail break does is open the file system.

    Hard to explain - but think of a stock iPad as a fully-capable device that is locked down (kind of like how your place of employment or school restricts access to certain web sites on your computer/network). Your computer is still capable of going to those sites, it's just being prevented. Same thing with the iPad.

    And yes, what a jail broken iPad can do IS pretty awesome (and something I much prefer).
