    I just want to make sure that everyone understands this point: jail breaking an iPad has NOTHING to do with getting apps/games for free. To use a jail broken device to get around paying for something that is for sale is piracy and is not condoned here. It is theft, plain and simple, against our rules and illegal.

    We jail break our devices to gain access and control over the file system, not to steal from developers.

    So, please - put any such thoughts of "get many games for free" once you jail break out of your mind.

    Thanks.

    Marilyn

    Things like this are why we jailbreak...

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1360230102.620184.jpg

    5-Row Keyboard,
    SBSettings pop-up toggle window,
    Customised status bar information,
    Changing the icons, etc. etc. etc. :D

    Please don't use your jailbreak to steal!

    Sorry but I see nothing to entice me. Pretty much fluff IMHO.
    I'll stay on the legal side of the law. :p

    There is absolutely nothing illegal about being jailbroken. These forums do not support or condone illegal activity in any way.

    One persons "fluff", is someone else's wooly jumper.

    My second line was a joke............you didn't see the smiley?
    Hard to add any humor on this forum..........

    Still call it fluff......that wasn't humor.

    Not "an app" per se. That is my jailbroken iPad4 on the spotlight search screen on which you can see:

    iKeyWi HD - The 5 row keyboard tweak - Review here - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...-ikeywi-hd-ipad-new-5-row-keyboard-tweak.html
    SBSettings - pop-up menu allowing access to toggle system settings and customisation of the status bar
    Boss.ipad - a winterboard theme to change the icons and colour scheme of the device - Review here - http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-themes/85151-boss-ipad-fif7y-winterboard-theme.html

    Head on over to the Hacking Section if you would like more details ;)
