    I'm afraid if your main reason for jailbreaking is flash you will be sorely disappointed. Thats one thing you cant get to any satisfactory degree via JB. Also, a 3G is not a great test device due to the fact it is already underpowered and short of resources compared to todays devices. Hope you find some reasons to try the ipad by looking through this sections threads and stickies...

    Pity I didn't get this advice before. Thanks for the confirmation.

    I already have the Ipad2. Had the ipad1 also. Don't get me wrong, love my ipad but i find that flash is becoming a deal breaker for me. Maybe it is a phase. Eying the Palybook now.

    Short answer- Yes!

    MyWi OnDemand will set you back a one time fee of $25. Then, as long as your iPhone and iPad are jailbroken, have MyWi installed and bluetooth enabled on both devices, it's all automatic... Say you are in a car and you wanted to check something on the internet on your wifi-only iPad... Just turn it on! It will detect there is no wifi service and then automatically connect to your iPhone via bluetooth in order to use it's 3G service. Then when you turn the iPad off, it disconnects from the iPhone, thereby saving battery life while "sleeping". It really does work well.

    Pretty expensive for a Cydia app, but it's well worth it in my opinion! It's fully compatible with 4.3.2 as well....

    I am interested in your last comment.
    You mentioned 4.3.2 compatibility: Is the jailbreak for that out yet? And I am talking about for the ipad2.

    There is a jailbreak for 4.3.2, but it only works for all iOS devices, except iPad 2. There is no iPad 2 jb, yet.

    A few more reasons to jailbreak (forgot these earlier, I think):

    - FakeClockUp
    - BrowserChanger
    - DisplayOut
    - PullToRefresh

    lol. First off, flash has been running on iOS devices for years, it works well on the ipad through compatibility programs (some jailbreak like frash) some non jailbreak, like iswifter which i hear works great.

    For an ipad forum, i've found nothing but mis-information here. Just saying.

    You haven't heard about the texts mywii users have gotten from AT&T? I would think the chances would be less if you just tethered an ipad, as they consume the same types of data ~

    but you should be warned about that... loads of people i know got the text, not me:D
