    Hello!

    I'm a newbie and need your help with steps on how to jailbreak so I could save files, photos, etc. on flash drive or memory SD (camera) card? Do I need to get the camera connecting kit as mentioned in some threads to make this work?

    Please explain in real easy layman's terms as I'm not quite tech reader.

    Thanks! :)

    Hi Dale_b,

    Thanks for your reply. I feel like an idiot 'cuz I forgot to mention that it's iPad I wanna jailbreak into :eek: . I'm not sure what the os firmware is yet 'cuz I just ordered the refurb ipad 16gb/wifi/3G and awaiting its arrival. I checked for the os and it looks like it's os 4 if not previous version installed. Do you have the instructions for iPad or is it the same as iPhone if the os is the same version? Please advise.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the link!

    I hate to ask a dumb question but what's "tethered" and how is it significant if any? Could I get it untethered somehow if any? And what's the difference(s) between them?

    Thanks again!

    What relevance does that link have here??? It is to install the iPad's 3.2.2 baseband on an IPHONE... not iPad. I would be very careful trying that on an iPad.

    More importantly... why? The iPad is already unlocked. No need to do a thing. See here, within the first 20 seconds of video, Jobs explains that it will be unlocked. And it is.

    Thanks, Michael, for clarification! Are there any links you'd suggest that caters to jailbreak iPad for memory drive/flash drive to store files and photos?

    Thanks again!

    The standard jailbreak will be fine, although it is tethered--don't reboot it out in the field.

    But you will want a cydia app to better see the drive. iFile should be one your list.

    If no trouble, can you kindly point me to the right direction to get the standard jailbreak file?

    I'll rem not to reboot it out of home. Thanks for the tip!

    Will look for the iFile.

    Thanks again!

    P.S. the current version is 3.2.2, should I update it to latest version of 4.2.1 before jailbreaking it? Please advise.

    Or is it 4.2, not 4.2.1?

    Well 4.2.1 is the current version. But the jailbreak is tethered. The jailbreak for 3.2.2 is not tethered. What you should do though is save your SHSH blobs for 3.2.2 while you still can just to be safe. Download TinyUmbrella and use that to save your SHSH blobs. If you don't do that you can't go back to an earlier firmware when Apple stops signing it.... any day now for 3.2.2.

    SHSH blobs? What are they? (Sorry to ask more QQs...I'm still tech idiot and newbie) I checked the TinyUmbrella but the only link on the list is for iPad 4.2.1, not earlier versions (I didn't click on it though 'cuz I think it's downloading link?). So how do I find the SHSH blobs to save for 3.2.2? Do I save them first before jailbreak or is it after I jailbreak then save them? If it's possible, please provide the steps. Anyhow, I'd use the 3.2.2 for untethered for now until the genius cracks the 4.2.1 thing to make it untethered, too. Once again, thanks for your patience and help!

    SHSH blobs are unique to your device. When restoring your device iTunes phones home to make sure your device is OK... and you happily restore. But once Apple stops signing a given firmware that "phone home" will fail and you cannot go back to earlier version. Saving the SHSH blobs allows you to fool iTunes into thinking it is phoning home when in fact it is not. It basically preserves your ability to go back.

    You can save the SHSH blobs for 3.2.2 by simply running TinyUmbrella, clicking on your iPad on the left, and then clicking Save SHSH on the right. You should do this now no matter what. Any day now Apple will stop signing 3.2.2.

    As for the jailbreak, many people do not like it being tethered so are staying on jailbroken 3.2.2. I don't mind the tether as I rarely need to reboot my iPad. So I am running 4.2.1 and it is jailbroken. I would never do a tethered jailbreak on my iPhone though.

    How to do the jailbreak differs greatly for 3.2.2 and 4.2.1.

    I discovered that Apple stopped signing 3.2.2 (I guess I'm too late) so the only SHSHs I have saved are 4.2.1 and 4.2b3. The only concern I have regarding 4.2.1. jailbroken is TinyUmbrella cannot kick me out of recovery 'cuz of something that Apple did to prevent me from returning to original factory settings (wipe out all the traces of jailbreaking). Am I wrong about that? Please clarify about that. Thanks!

    Oh, another thing - on the settings menu (TinyUmbrella), it says "Set Hosts to Cydia on Exit (if you need a clean restore from Apple uncheck this box)". What does it mean? If I keep it checked, then I cannot restore the iPad to factory settings which means it's not erasing any traces of jailbreaking codes and lose the warranty? Please advise. Thanks!

    Are you certain they stopped signing it? They still were as of yesterday morning.

    In any event nothing can prevent you from restoring to 4.2.1 again, removing the jailbreak. It is all reversible.

    The only thing you cannot do after updating to 4.2.1 is go back to 3.2.2--if Apple did stop signing it and you did not get the SHSH blobs saved.

    But I really don't think Apple stopped signing 3.2.2... I think people posted in here today that they went back to 3.2.2 and I don't think they were the kinds of people who would have even known to save SHSH blobs.

    I think so 'cuz I ran the "save SHSH" on TinyUmbrella program and I saw the details under Advance tab saying that I'm too late for the 3.2+ firmwares. I'm confused by that 'cuz I've not updated/upgraded the firmware to 4.2.1 even though iTunes offer that when I first set it up. Should I re-do the "save SHSH" and see what happens? Or is there another program that saves SHSH as well other than TinyUmbrella?

    Well you can do it in Cydia too--but that message may have been about 3.2.1... that one is not being signed anymore.

    Oh and it doesn't matter if you still have 3.2.2 installed: once Apple stops signing them you won't be able to do it. I would still have TinyUmbrella save them and see what happens.

    How do I save them aka TU? I looked everywhere to see if there's a way to save them while it's still 3.2.2 but none at all if I overlooked something. Still too late thou?
