    Hi. Just picked up a new 64gb Ipad last night. Haven't done anything with it yet. Want to jailbreak it right, so I came here for advice:)

    It is 3.2.2. Is it better to go with the last untethered release(not sure which one that is) or is 4.2 all that? I don't always have my laptop with me, so a tethered boot won't be an option sometimes.

    I would advise that you jailbreak iOS 3.2.2 for now and wait until the jailbreak has been completed and tested for iOS 4.2.1 and above. There's not a lot to be gained from 4.2.1 that can't be done on 3.2.2 with the jailbreak. I have 3.2.2 jailbroken with limera1n, and I have folders, multitasking, themes and many great hacks that make using it sweet as can be, don't need to upgrade for the most part. However, their are some new apps and upgraded apps that only run on 4.x.x and above. It shouldn't be long now before the jailbreak, untethered, for 4.2.1 and 4.3 are out. Just hold on a little(?) while longer, while the cat and mouse game between Apple and the Devs plays out.

    Thanks for the reply. Tried to do the greenbutton jb, didn't go well and itunes reset it with 4.2.1 after the unit would not boot. Guess I'm stuck for now. Just curious, if I did the tethered 4.2.1 hack, will I be able to upgrade to the untethered hack later? Thx.

    what you have to do is download hacked firmware for the ipad, you can google for it, then you can use redsn0w to jailbreak tethered....it's not hard to do but sometimes it takes a few tries to get it right

    after you jailbreak, it's just software, so you can jailbreak otherwise later

    the main reason I jailbreak is so I can tether my iPad to my BlackBerry because it's dumb to pay for data if you dont have to (I know it's not as fast as 3G, but it's plenty fast for emailing, checking facebook and blogging)

    cheers!

    I have just jailbreak my Ipad to 4.2.1 using Redn0w and would like to use the ifile apps. However based on a discussion on a forum, it seem that ifile would not work for USB due to the new firmware. Have anyone has this problem?


    Btw I would also like to ask, after I jailbreak my Ipad what is the advantage about it? I heard from friends that you could download paid apps for free. But i am doubtful about it.

    Thanks and regards

    Thanks everyone for your help.

    Btw i know that ifile app happened to work on USB anymore due to the power restriction on the new ver. Is there anyway whereby you can view files in your iPad?

    Thanks and regards
