    More importantly make sure you save your blobs

    Yes that's true, but iPad 2 3G owners MUST jailbreak ASAP as they cannot downgrade

    Noobie question -- I understand that I just have to go to jailbreakme.com to get the process started, but what, if anything, is there to do in terms of prep work for jailbreaking the iPad2?

    All the tutorials I have seen are for the old JBs, which seem to have been a little more elaborate than the current one, so I can't tell what steps (saving blobs, etc) are required for the old JBs, optional for the new one, just good housekeeping, etc.

    Any words of advice?

    If I performed everything correctly (and I sure hope I did), I saved my blob locally on my PC using TinyUmbrella and then got going. The prep methods described might be old, but the modus is still the same. I hope...

    First you shold connect your iPad and perform a sync with iTunes so you have your stuff backed up. Then if your iPad is not on firmware 4.3.3 update your ipad. Download TinyUmbrella and save your SHSH blobs (see sticky in hacking section if you have questions). Once you have done all of this, visit www.jailbreakme.com and perform the jailbreak. Because of the way this jailbreak is set up it is one of the easiest jailbreaks to perform so there really isn't that much you need to do as far as preperation. I do suggest you update to 4.3.3 and save the blobs right away. Should Apple release the new 4.3.4 firmware (or what ever they decide to name it) and you have not this, you will have missed the window and will not be able to jailbreak. Apple may release the firmware update in one week or one hour, there is no way to know.

    That's right. But, there really is no prep to do for this JB. The other stuff is just good practice.

    You should save your 4.3.3 blobs now, but you don't have to in order to prepare. You can save them after if you like, but you must save them before Apple releases 4.3.4, because then it will be too late.

    Also, there is no RUSH to jailbreak if you don't want to. Just DONT update to 4.3.4 if iTunes offers it to you. As long as you stay on 4.3.3 you can jailbreak any time you want. You don't HAVE to do it before 4.3.4 is out...

    Hope that clarifies...

    All clear... Thanks.

    I came across a thread yesterday that had a link to an article listing the "top five websites" for downloading apps after jailbreaking your device (or something like that). Cydia was on the list, of course, plus one or two sites where they had emulators, etc. Can't find that post anymore, though, even though I went through my entire browsing history from yesterday. :(

    Does anyone by chance remember the post/thread I am talking about and can point me to it?
