    I'm wondering the same thing, but I haven't seen anything yet. I guess we have to wait :(

    You can jailbreak it, but Cydia doesn't work yet. They are working on a complete makeover so it will be worth the wait. Right now jailbreaking and installing apps is a much more complicated approach and not a good idea unless you know what your doing.

    This is probably a stupid question, but if I jailbreak using the redsnow hack, and at some point I power down my ipad, what functionality will I lose when I bring it back up and I haven't "tethered" it? I think I lose Cydia until I actually run redsnow again, correct? Does that mean that any apps that I loaded with Cydia will be unavailable, but everything else will work fine?

    I'm trying to decide whether I should wait for an untethered jailbreak, or just go with the current tethered jailbreak.

    You are correct. Any Cydia apps and cydia itself will not work until you tether and use redsn0w to reboot the device. However, the standard iPad apps will work.
    For the iPad this is not TOO much of an inconvenience because in general we keep the iPad booted up much longer than an iPhone. However, to get the usual suspects running (cydia, ssh, winterboard, sbsettings, etc.) loaded you need to do a tethered boot around 3 or 4 times (depending on how many you install in one go). After the initial "load" of key apps though, you should be good to go...
    Personally I find it hard to recommend a tethered JB to people, but if you are comfortable with the details then give it a shot...

    Also, a wee tip for you. If Cydia presents you with the "reboot device" button after installing something, do not select it. Press the home button to come out of Cydia and power down the iPad. They you will be good to do the tethered boot using Redsn0w. If you let Cydia reboot the iPad you end up in the unjailbroken state and need to power down anyway... Just saves a minute of frustration!

    having a heck of a time with the redsnow jb

    downloaded the ipsw and redsnow from the same location
    went to itunes and restored to the ipsw
    started redsnow, pointed to current ipsw file, it verifies fine
    go through the steps, everything seems OK through the power/home buttons.. then it goes to uploading ramdisk and just sits there forever.. some times it stops at 5 bars, sometimes at 6, sometimes at 8, etc... eventually it reboots, despite redsnow appearing to be stuck, but no cydia

    running this from x64 win7.. i assume there isnt an issue with running on 64bit os?

    nope, not yet.. hadnt really thought about it.. since Ive always been able to sync with this one..
    even just did a restore of my apps a few minutes ago through this cable

    i take it that the 'uploading ramdisk' part is supposed to go pretty quick?

    Is it still possible to "respring" the device after this jailbreak? I usually do that instead of rebooting

    Easy fix. Run redsn0w in compatability mode for Windows XP Service Pack 3 (right click and choose compatability mode). Will work fine if you do this...

    thanks for your help.... but i think i will wait for untethered version, would i be correct in assuming an untethered version will be available 1 day soon?

    also, just curious - with tethered if you lose your cydia apps after normal reboot- is that the same for apps people get through the hackulous thingy? are they not real apps from the app store that are hacked?
