    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.

    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.

    The problem wasn't the jb itself, but what it caused. Guess it's just not for everyone.

    I jailbroke my iPad 2 yesterday...and I'm a newb to iOS (more experienced with Android) and mine went smoothly as can be...it must have been the combination of tweaks you did. I've heard some don't play nice. But from what I've read the actual jailbreak itself has no effect on the stability of the iPad...it's the tweaks/apps you install that cause issues...

    I hadn't installed any tweaks by that point.

    There HAD to have been a corrupt file in the download of abstithe (sp) you used. Speaking from Android experience & what I've gathered with iOS...the actuall jailbreak/root does NOT make the system unstable in anyway.
