    Jailbreaking

    For me? A REALLY bad idea. I know people do it, but I leave as is. I don't see the benefit of maybe ruining you ipad....And remember, if you do Jailbreak, you are on your own, Apple won't help!

    Not Apple?

    I know...:) and to each his or her own! I just prefer to leave mine as is...Not even tempted to break my ipad 1. Strange 'cause I'm normally a risk taker!

    I'm with you Vintage90 - normally a risk-taker too, but like the iPad just the way it is.

    Quite new here comming fomr the Android world. If I JB my iPad can I always restore it (sort of hard reset it) via iTunes? That is important to know if I need to send it back (claiming warranty).

    I've never jail broken anything but if you want to have a go you can always restore your iPad through iTunes so no danger of any permanent damage. I am certain that if you decide to jailbreak then Leigh, our other moderator from Scotland will give you some good advice.

    Jail braking involves no risk, what so ever.

    If the iPad somehow breaks and you want to repair/exchange it, you can always reset the iPad, or use iTunes to restore the original firmware. And if the iPad is really bricked, so that the above mentioned methods will not work, then Apple wont be able to find out that there is a jb installed. So there is no real risk.

    Besides, jail braking in itself doesn't harm the device, only cracked Cydia apps might do so.

    You see ghosts! I should have known from the moment you posted that 'do you believe in ghosts' thread. I just knew it. :p

    Archangel refers to only one person, and yet do you perceive them as two. Hunt the witch :D

    Have a look at the redsn0w tutorial sticky. It's quite easy and risk free. If anything at all goes wrong or you don't like it, you just restore in iTunes back to a stock iPad. All the stickies contain information about how, why, and what you get. If you have any questions or get stuck yourself, post a thread and we'll see if we can help...

    Have you by any chance installed a tethered jailbreak? If so, you will have to use jail breaking tool again to start your phone.

    What happens, if you press the power and home button for 7 seconds simultaneously?
