    Hello All,

    I have an iPad 2 which is jailbroken and was wondering what the best way of increasing my storage space is. Many say buying a connection kit but is this the best way? How easy is this to do and what's the max size of SD card you can use?

    Thank you so much,

    James

    Well, CCK with SD cards, at 32GB each, is probably quite easy. I do that, and it works really well for me... I'm not sure if any other folks think another way is easiest...?

    What about an external hard drive that is self-powered? Then you could go up to like 1tb.

    @davies375, search the forums you will find that not all external drives and thumbdrives work correctly.

    Do we have to use a certain class of SD card with this to make it work?

    Any cheap SD card links for people who use this option?

    Regarding the hard drives, the method to access them no longer works on iOS 5.

    That airstash and similar drives are so cool.

    I also think that with ifile and access to the document system of most 3rd party apps that Dropbox and other cloud solutions are better than ever. The Box.net deal going on is amazing.

    As far as I am aware, all SD cards which are SDHD (up to 32GB) are reported to work. I haven't heard of any brand that doesn't.

    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hack...d2-step-step-guide-camera-connection-kit.html

    Using the method above, I have an external HD (500GB) hooked up to my iPad2 with USB. I'm using the camera connection kit and a y-usb cable to supply power to the drive as described in this thread. I'm running 5.01 jailbroken. I haven't tried it, but since you are supplying external power and not relying on the iPad's limited power output you should be able to use the SD adapter that comes with the camera connection kit with nearly any SD card. (probably all)

    Only difference is that I use an external Lithium battery (from New Trent) as the HD power supply instead of the plug in charger. That gives me a completely portable solution. Using iFile I can copy between the iPad and the HD both ways and play movies directly from the HD using the iFile built in player.
