OK, you're all talking in Geekish now...;)
For the technophobic ones amongst us - What is Jailbreak? What does it do that the normal OS doesn't do? Why should I do it? What are the pitfalls?
I wanted an iPad because it is easy to use. No set up, no maintenance (defragging etc), intuitive to use and so on. Sell this Jailbreak to me!
Follow the links on the Moderator's post a couple of posts up the page and you'll find out what it's all about.
OK - I've posted them here too....
ok that was as painless as could be, i barely finished my redbull before it was done. the longest part was downloading the 4.3.1 ipsw which took all of 5 minutes. great write ups, videos and support guys. now i just have to read up on how to make the most of cydia, thank you again
oh btw i used my mac with the 10.5.8 os and redsn0w
sorry probably been asked before but in your opinion what is this best method to jailbreak 4.3.1, redsnow or snowbreeze?? I want to jailbreak the ipad and the iphone 4.
a sidenote: does this stop internet tethering on ipad? (I tether my ipad to my iphone)
Does the first post (towards the end) not help you make that decision yourself? Sounds like redsn0w to me.Quote:

Ah didn't see that bit! Ok I'll use redsnow, so a quick recap (haven't done it in a while) backup shsh blobs via umbrella, backup apps using appbackup, backup Cydia using aptbackup (or pgkbackup) then install iOS 4.3.1, then jailbreak?
Lots of good info in this post, thanks,
