    I had my first gen iPhone jail broken and unlocked for years. I loved it, but the upgrading was a pain in the rear, and I started to ask myself. Can I live without it? I have seen, on some of the forums, people saying the iPad 2 is "worthless" without the Jailbrake. I mainly want the Jailbrake for myself, so I can tether to my blackberry, which I need for business. Other than that I could probably live without it. So I ask.... Is it worthless to you without the JB? What do you guys think?

    Yea. The main reason I have the iPad is for my photography and using it to proof images during a shoot. I need it to be jail broken so I can create an ad hoc network from the iPad

    I can live without it, but there are useful things that I would like to do with a Jailbreak. Such as install the full bluetooth stack for bluetooth GPS support.

    I can live without it, but my iPad 1/2 as useful as it would be with JB, main reason no internet on the go without iBluever app which can tether to my blackberry for 3G internet...

    If you already have a jail broken iPhone 4, with tethering..is there a point in jail breaking the iPad 2?

    Probably not, unless u have other reasons (i.e. accessing file system to transfer photos to external HDD on the go).

    I so want to JB. Why? Because I am so intrigued and fascinated by it. But I am too scared!

    Thanks. Do you know of a list of things that can be done on a jail broken iPad? Was wondering if there was a thread or website article mentioning this. I haven't found much in my searches.
