    I was so excited to finally jb when 5.0.1 was released, i did it the day it was released. BAD IDEA. As soon as i did it, everything that once ran smooth became nearly unusable. Skype is my most used app, and it didn't work PERIOD. i gave it a chance, but after only two days, I was researching DFU mode so I could restore back to my previous set up. Jailbreaking was the worst experience I've had in the whole 10 months of owning my iPad. I would never recommend it to anyone.

    Sounds like you just had a rough go of it. Ive had all my iOS devices jailbroken with no issues *shrug* give it a try again. You might find something you missed in the steps or perhaps it was corrupt software download

    Skype won't work on Jailbroken devices, that's the reason, not really a horror story! If the iPad bricked, well then that would of been one..

    Not having skype wasn't the worst of it.

    Skype works on my jailbroken ipad. Just gives you a warning first that you simply ignore

    No. The call never held for more than 2 minutes. Ever.

    I personally have no interest in jailbreaking my ipad.

    Not worth it, IMHO.

    To everyone his own opinion. Not everyone is able to use a jailbroken iPad without breaking it.

    I certainly could use jailbreak if it didn't mess with important (to me) things. I have 22 years computer experience and am in no way a noob at it.
