    Not sure if this has been answered elsewhere, can't find it. I have a jail broken iPad 2. Will I be able to upgrade to ios6 when it comes out or will I have to "unjailbreak" it first? Thank you.

    When iOS 6 is released, you should be able to connect the iPad to iTunes and select "Restore." iTunes should take care of the rest. Of course, you will want to make a backup first. Oh, and you WILL lose your jail break.

    So in 25 words or less, why jailbreak such a fantastic and fulfilling, in my opinion, device?

    Rooted my Nook Color on an SD card for obvious reasons. But my trusty iPad 2 is totally satisfying as is! Just sayin'...

    Oh, maybe it's to access certain games?

    With iKeywi and SwipeSelection, I can quickly and easily use my iPad to do all my forum posting and moderating - see this for more reasons: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=25824

    There, in 25 words (well, and a link) - why I jailbreak. :)

    Well worded, Marilyn. And thanks for the link. That does whet ones appetite to the interesting aspects/possibilities of the jailbreak. However, probably won't seriously consider it until iOS 6 is out. By that time, might be over the iPad 2 first love and ready to start playing - maybe.

    Does "full potential" count?
