    just experience, jailbreaking is kind of a pain. everytime apple comes out with a new iOS update you have to wait for a jailbreak to come out and actually re-jailbreaking it everytime that happens. but it all depends on how badly you want jailbreak features. - tradeoffs....

    I ran jailbreak on my IPad 1 for years but I needed some features that were only available that way. As jtrill stated jailbreak is kind
    of a pain since you have to jailbreak then wait for a new jailbreak while everyone is touting the laurels of the new IOS.
    I say if you need features that only a jailbreak can give you then go for it, otherwise live with the standard IOS.
    Remember a jailbreak can't ruin your IPad and is easy to reverse.

    I have a question - If i jailbreak my ipad 2 for mobile tethering and a new ios update comes out, and i accept it, will it unjailbreak me?, like take out cydia and all that, and if it does can i just jailbreak it again when a new software comes out?

    Yes it will. Updates from apple are very likely to patch the exploit for security reasons. You should always upgrade at majot releases like ios4 to ios5 and so on

    I have previously jailbroken my iPad 2 and iPod Touch 4th Gen. Let me tell you that they had durastically gotten slower and would not open apps like the new Angry Birds Space and the popular Draw Something. If you were really looking to use a mouse with your iPad, you should have looked into a MacBook or Laptop. The jailbreak will not void your warranty. I know this from previous experience. You could always check your warranty status by going here > http://selfsolve.apple.com/agreementWarrantyDynamic.do .

    I have a jail broken iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Both work just fine. I've themed the heck out of my 4S. One thing I do not do is add anything from a repo the promotes cracked or pirated apps. Everything I've added via Cydia works well. YMMV
    Forgive your enemies it mess up their minds!

    It's your choice not ours here are some of the big things not getting into little things

    Pros: basicly do what ever you want to your spring board and like you said the thing with the mouse

    Cons: voids warranty apple stores can refuse your product can't update when new iOS comes out witch you can but yo loos your jailbreak
