    Dear Forum members,

    My new machine is a steep learning curve indeed. Purchased to carry around on my overseas travels instead of the laptop, first impression is that it is a really clever dick thing with many curious features designed to appeal to gadgetry minded users, and Apple enthusiasts. Always a Mac user, one who appreciates the ease of use of my 17" Macbook Pro, the iPad is a kick in the guts. I really hate the dictatorial nature of this thing, that I am at the mercy of its endless demands, and restrictions, eg YOU will, before you are granted access to say for example a "free" app, supply your credit card details, address and so on, and if you don't, well stew in your own juice. That YOU cannot access a pre existing subscription to a newspaper without jumping through this or that hoop.....It seems that Apple has become too bloody big for its boots. However, with the help of this forum I will learn how to use it, the very first lesson will be how to unlock and free it from the rapacious Apple inc.
    No offence intended to dedicated lovers of the iPad !

    If you want to Jailbreak/Unlock your new iPad 2, I hope you haven't upgraded to iOS 5.1, if you have, you've got a bit of a wait I'm afraid

    Thanks mate, it came with that IOS already installed. The commercial jailbreak sellers who advertise that their program will do 5.1 unlock are having us on ? My reading of the forums on this topic seem to say so.

    Yep, just a con I'm afraid. Just want you to complete one of their surveys. Follow @iphonehackx or @pod2g on twitter for up to date news on the 5.1 jailbreak
