    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.

    Wow. That's to bad. I JB my iPad2 as soon as the 5.0.1 JB was released and I haven't been happier. I also JB my new iPod Touch 4 as soon as i got it which was a recent Bday gift. Plus yesterday I finally JB my wife's iPad2.

    @MoonlitSonata, I was saddened to read about your JB experience. I've always run my iPads jail broken and never encountered any problems. I'm also a big iPad Skype user (long video calls and chat) and, again, no problems other than the warning message as indicated by @superhoops which can be simply ignored. Personally I think doing the JB is well worth it. If you come round to deciding to have another go at it my advice would be to restore your iPad to factory settings before doing the JB, and restore your backup and/or install apps *only after* you've done the JB. Hope this helps.

    My ipad has been jailbroken for as long as I have had it. (Over a year and a half)
    Never had any problems.
