    Since my restore just F'ed up and wiped out everything it's a good time to JB, I have two questions.

    First, What os has a good JB and how do I downgrade the os to allow for that JB?

    Second, how do I get all my purchased apps back?

    Thanks

    If you have an ipad1, you can do an untethered jb.upgrade to 4.3 if necessary and jb.

    Your app store apps can be downloaded for free if you login.

    Not sure what it is I should find in the app store. I searched "untethered", "untethered,jb" and "untethered.JB.upgrade" and found nothing for the iPad.

    What am I looking for in the app store? Also I have 4.3.1, will this JB work with that os?

    Thanks

    I prefer sn0wbreeze 2.5.1. I think it's better.

    Have a look at the stickies in my sig. They have info about shsh blobs which assist with downgrading as well as the current jailbreak methods. 4.3.1 is jailbreakable, so a downgrade may not be an issue for you.

    Jailbreaking does not effect your purchased apps. At worst you will just have to resync your apps from iTunes if you do decide for whatever reason to downgrade or use a custom firmware jailbreak, but you can always easily get them back...

    Hope that helps.

    Is there a good place to get FREE tweaks and apps for a JB iPad?

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    Yes, there is: Cydia, it has both paid and free apps, some of the best apps, SBSettings, are free. If you were asking for something else, you shouldn't do so within the boundaries of this forum.
