    Hey guys, I was just wondering if it was worth it to jailbreak my 1st gen iPad. I had an iPhone 3GS that I jail broke but it became slower. I feel that apple has restricted a lot of the iPad's capabilities. Although most.of the iPad's features are very nice, I feel like there is something apple can do to make the iPad more exciting.

    Here are a few reasons to jailbreak:

    1. MyWi OnDemand - Turns your WiFi iPad into a 3g iPad (if you have an iphone - this allows on-demand tethering - awesome)
    2. SmartScreen - Put widgets on your lock screen!
    3. Complete customization (sounds, graphics, etc)
    4. iFile, SBSettings, ScrollingBoard, MultiCleaner....

    If you haven't heard of any of these, do yourself a favor and do a Google search!

    #1 intrigues me. So rather than paying Verizon an extra $30+ a month for tethering, if I JB our 1st gen IPads, we can tether for free when we get an IPhone?

    This question was just crossing my mind.

    I have taken a dive into jailbreak. I tried it on my iphone 3g. Just about an hour but I am totally disappointed so far. My main reason was to get flash. I searched and found this app/add on for Safari imobilecinema. Installed it but every flash video site I go to and try to play gives me a broken vid icon.

    I keep searching but that is the only one I have seen.

    I am glad I tried it on my iphone first. Unless things change, I won't bother to jailbreak ipad.

    I can't jailbreak for backgrounds.
