    I have a Ipad2 with iOS5b2 on it.
    What are the advantages/disadvantages of jailbroke iPad2 4.3.3 over 5?

    Thanks,

    Mel

    Well currently, the 4.3.3 JB is untethered, which is a big plus for me over the 5. (In case you dont know, untethered means you are able to reboot the device with no hassle, tethered means if you want to reboot the device you have to be near a computer and run the jailbreak program again to start it up)

    Also, i believe some, if not most, of the tweaks in Cydia may not be compatible with iOS 5 (again I'm speculating, I'm not positive if this is true).

    I'd recommend sticking to the 4 unless tweaks you use are compatible with iOS 5, and if you don't reboot your device that often.

    Yes, you shouldn't really be messing with a 5.x JB unless you are a JB app developer... Not much works yet...

    I'm afraid your answer had nothing to do with my question. What are the Advantages of a Jailbroke iPad2 4.3.3 over a 5.0b2 Ipad2??

    Of course Cydia is not compatable with iOS5. In fact it's not comatable with anything but a Jailbroke device.

    Nice attitude. That's not how your original query reads at all. Good luck.

    Well, if it's the difference between stock 5b2 and JB4.3.3, personally I would go for JB every time, but it totally depends on personal preference and usage. As you say, b2 is incredibly stable and I am amazed how many of my core apps are working flawlessly. However, I have a core set of tweaks which I find it difficult to live without. I am very lucky to have a ipad1 with 5b2 and a JB 4.3.3 iPad2 now. If I had to choose it would be jB for me. YMMV.

    Thanks...I'm going to downgrade (in fact doing that now) and try out the JB. I can always go back to the beta.
