    You can restore the firmware and Apple will repair/replace your device if something is broken.

    It might be possible that certain jb files are not deleted, but when you connect the iPad to Apple's MacBooks for their service software to check the iPad, it will only show when you have installed the latest firmware, not that it was jail broken beforehand.

    I know they say it voids the warranty, but...

    Of course jailbreaking your iPad can cause the software not to function normally, but as far as I know, there has never been one single case of jailbreaking damaging the hardware.

    So the bottom line is that if your software starts flaking out after your jailbreak, you can restore the firmware. If there is a hardware issue, Apple is going to send you a replacement unit with the latest version of the iOS on it anyway.

    No, apple cannot see, whether it has been jailbreaked, this holds true for any iOS device.

    Why? There won't be any untethered jb for 4.3, it only comes for 4.3.1. That is the reason why the untethered jb has been delayed, because they had to wait for Apple to release the update before making their used exploits public.

    The untethered jailbreak will only be released for 4.3.1, not for 4.3. But you don't have to update right now, you could also wait for the jb to be released and then update.

    I was on the fence also b4 my first jailbreak. I researched and researched and researched. Then watched vid after vid after vid. Even did trial runs of me Jailbreaking...lmao once I finally did it, I was like man, WTF , this is simple as a Mofo. The Jailbreakme.com was the simplest/easiest jailbreak ever when it was around. Just go to website. Slide the slider, then iPad is jail broken. Word on the street, lol, is that a new one might be coming soon for ipad2 or the 4.3.1.

    Sent from my Jailbroken IPad on 4.2.1 ;-)
