    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!
