    I really hope this is the correct forum where to ask these questions - if it isnt I beg your pardon!

    I was interested to start programming for my ipad2, just for the fun of it - I dont intend to submit any app to the apple store... up to now I am experienced in C/C++ programming, under Linux.

    What I'm most confused about is: I find stupid to pay the Apple tax of 99$ for the privilege to program my own device: according to what I read, if I dont pay, I can only run code in the internal simulator...
    Since I jailbreaked it, there is some alternative way to Xcode???


    Again hoping this is the right forum,
    thanx for your help!!!

    Well you can develop your apps with xcode, but to get them to the device you need the iPad's UDID registered, which requires a developer account. [Moderator edit: Removed any temptations...].
