    Unless you have an iPad1, there is no jail break on iOS 5.1, tethered or untethered. And, for the iPad1 - the only jail break available is a tethered one.

    To start off learning about iOS jailbreaks, have a look through this thread: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?p=509132

    Then, it you want more, may I suggest you grab a beverage and a snack and have a browse through the rest of the stickies and tutorials in the Hacking forum. I say to grab a snack cause there's a lot there! :)

    Hopefully, that'll get you started.
