    Just got an ipad from work. Brand new to the ipad arena, 5 min of life in the ipad forum, first post, and say hello to all of you oldtimers.

    1) try to download an app from apple store. It said, "your app is NOT in the US store. your app is available in the chinese store. do you want to switch store?" I responded, yes. And sure, it found the app in the chinese apple store. so, I try to download and install. "cannot download app from this store (Chinese ?) while still sign on to the US store.... ". How do I sign on to the chinese store? and how do I sign back onto the US stone when done. BTW, these are all free apps, no money involved. I just dont know how to navigate between stores.

    2) what kind of iPad is mine? Where to look? software update?

    3) how do one hack this ipad... something called jailbreak? Is that only for the old iphone, or the new ipad also need to jailbreak?

    Sorry about these kindergarten questions... Hope some of you will be kind enough to spoonfeed me. When I grow up, I will spoonfeed another newbie in return :eek:

    TIA,

    bun

    Does the ipad has anything similar to the window, one can look at the start>control panel>device manager to look at the device properties? or the equivalent of android>about phone?

    TIA,

    You'll have to create an account at the China store in order to sign in. Once you have the account, you sign in and out of the store(s) by tapping the button (at the bottom of most of the store pages) that contains your ID. Once you tap that button, you'll get a pop-up - one of the options is to sign out...

    Go to your Settings app (the icon with a gear on it). Once it opens, look on the left side for a line titled "General" and press/tap it (it should be the default view - but just in case...). Once a new tab opens, on the right side, look for a line titles "About." That will tell you about your iPad (what version you are running, model number, etc.).

    That's for software. If you mean what kind of iPad you have, generation-wise (and if it has cellular access or not), that's a bit more difficult. Have a look at this Apple link: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5452. It lists out all the models and how to ID yours.

    Here's a good start at learning about jail breaking: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/2838-jailbreak-explained-new-updated-2011-a.html

    The thing to remember is, there are only certain iOS versions that are jail-breakable. If that new iPad came with iOS 6.1.3, then it is NOT jail breakable and you'll have to wait for iOS 7. However, if its on any other version of iOS 6, then it's possible to jail break and that link will get you started on seeing if that is something you want to do.

    They're not kindergarten questions - everyone is new to the iPad at the start. Hopefully, some of this will help. We also have a great Google widget that'll search only inside this forum, so you can browse here all day long. :)

    Good luck.

    P.S. And where are my manners?! Welcome to the forum. It's good to "see" you and I hope your visits.
