    FOR IPAD2:

    As you all know, iOS 5 is due to be revealed pretty soon (with an estimated release date a few months later) as is the 4.3 jailbreak. iOS 5 will include a revamped notification system, as well as widgets. The 4.3 jailbreak will include all of the goodies that jailbreaks usually come with. My question is: what will you choose to use?

    (this is estimating that a 5.0 jailbreak may take around 3 to 4 weeks)

    Personally, I'm on the fence.

    I don't like jail breaking since it's against Apples rules so I will never do it,

    I'm using an iPad 2 and am dying without the jailbreak. I will definitely hold off on iOS 5.0 so I can get the free apps I've been longing for and all those jailbreak apps/hacks that really complete the iPad. I'll probably update my mom's iPhone though to test out the new features on iOS 5.

    I think it depends on what iOS 5 brings to the table, and if a jailbreak is even out for 4.3 yet..

    I've been waiting for a jailbreak for 4.3 for so long I wouldn't upgrade if there was a chance it wouldn't work on 5.0 but I'm sure eventually once they successfully jailbreak the iPad 2 5.0 shouldn't be too far away

    Actually at this time 4.3 is the only guarantee for the jailbrake and once that is out they will work on 4.3.3. I'll hold off on updating to iOS 5 until there is a jailbrake out for it.



    It's not for everyone but there are a lot of cool tweaks and other applications you can get (some are pay & some are free) through Cydia. Apple is very controlling and if there is something they don't like about an app they don't have to let it into the app store but the developer can then take it to the Cydia store :)

    There was a time when I was tweaking my PC to get every last bit of perceived performance out of it. Overclocked the CPU, experimented with different memory, swapped out controller cards or replaced a harddisk for one that had higher rpms or a shorter access time... And you know what, at the end of the day I introduced more problems to my system than I solved. And quite frankly, reading my e-mail still took just as long even if it was displayed on my monitor a millisecond faster.

    The iPad does 95% of what I want it to do straight out of the box. I ain't gonna rock the boat (anymore). :)

    sorry but why are you posting in the hacking section again? i dont mean this as an insult, but if you're going to take that stand you'll be posting this in nearly every thread here.

    more on topic, i think it all depends on what iOS 5 is. as an ipad 2 owner, i really do have to choose between the two, and that's the best case scenario lol.

    I'm sorry, are you an Apple insider or something? Because I stay on top of tech news closer than most others and I have read absolutely nothing about iOS5. Also, iOS5 is not going to launch "soon". It will come out with the release of either the next iPhone or iPad, which is what Apple ALWAYS does for major revisions.
