    Jailbreaking does nothing to your apps at all. You wont even notice anything has changed when you jailbreak, except there will be one more app on one of your pages called "Cydia". Nothing is changed at all.

    And I don't think Flash gets any better than iSwifter at this point. If flash is very important to you, I suggest you keep an eye out on some of the upcoming Android tablets like the Samsung Galaxy 10.1.

    I can only tell you my experiences with this, but I have jailbroken my ipod and my ipad and have never lost an app. If you backup and sync your ipad on your computer with itunes before jailbreaking, all your apps should be saved there. I have also restored my ipad to day 1 more than once and reinstalled all my apps from itunes. If you have to restore, it is harder to reload jailbroken apps than the itunes ones.

    Now, I restored when 4.2.1 was the current OS, so since 4.3.1 is now out, I suppose I would have to go the SHSH blobs route if I have to do it again.

    What exactlybdoes jail breaking my iPad do that would make it worth the effort ? Also I already update my iPad to 4.3.1. So would that effect my iPad in any bad way if I jailbreak my iPad now. I guess I really just want to know what makes it beneficial to jailbreak. What more can indo with it jail broken, and I have bought about 250.00 in apps, do I get to keep them all, and does it effect my documents. I am new at this and I am on the first iPad. What does jail breaking do? Thank you for your time and hopefully a response.

    Jailbreaking allows you to install apps that apple doesn't approve of. And since you updated to 4.3.1 you will have to wait till a untethered JB comes out for your firmware. Yes...you keep all your apps & documents. And you can continue to sync to itunes afterwards with apple none the wiser. But I suggest you read up here on the forums to get better aqainted with the JB process. It can be intimidating for 1st time JB'ers. But once you do...you'll never want to go back....
    Here is a small vid of just the tip of the iceberg of what can be done:

    I used a JB program to record the screen which also shows my screen swipes.
