    Hello all,

    I have the iPad 3 and I am, I guess you an say scared to jailbreak it. From what I understand I have to delete all of my current apps. Is that correct? Can someone please help me.

    No, I can assure you that you don't have to delete all your apps. What you are probably getting mixed up in is the advice to have a near-as-new iPad before starting the jailbreak with Absinthe (the jail break tool). So, most people make a backup of the iPad and then restore to iOS 5.1.1, which does take everything off the iPad. But, the backup is there for later re-install. But - I've read that some people do the jail break without restoring first, so there's that...

    If you want to jail break that iPad3, see this tutorial: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=77390

    It'll provide you step-by-step guidance on jail breaking using Absinthe 2.0. And, of course, we are always available to answer questions. Good luck and let us know how you get on.
