    I'm new to Apple products and I was wondering what it meant. Sorry if it sounds like a dumb question.

    Jailbroken just means that you can get third party apps, games, etc that are not approved by apple and offered through iTunes. There are other things you can do as far as customizing ipad screens and themes also. There are other aspects of jailbreaking but that is the main thing.

    It's basically transforming ur device into something with endless capabilities. Jail broken iPads are the best cuz we can do a ton more than a stock iPad can do ;-) when ya ready, holla @ me lol

    I'm a newbie with another dumb question. If you jailbreak your ipad2, can you un-jailbrake it and return it to "normal"?
    Thanks,
    Bruce

    Yes you can reset the iPad to factory settings. This essentially un-jailbreaks the iPad.
