    As a total Noob to the ipad, I am hearing and seeing the term Jailbreak all over.

    In very simple laymans terms can someone explain WHY I would want to jailbreak. What does it do? What are the benefits?

    Lets assume I jailbreak my iPad today ... I sit back and say "Ok, now this baby is JailBroken, now I can (insert unbelievably cool benefits here)"

    Thanks guys!

    Four primary reasons for jailbreaking:

    1.) Being able to install apps that are simply not possible from the app store.

    2.) Being able to customize in ways not possible with a stock iPad.

    3.) Being able to access the file system directly.

    4.) Being able to thumb your nose at Apple's strict control... just because you can.

    "TEST" out games before buying.

    Customize your iPad to certain degrees, most people don't make iPad themes, but if your good with photoshop you can make cool things.

    I use Display Out a lot, the ability to show your iPad on a tv/monitor/projector etc.

    Lots and lots of positives.

    No really negatives really.

    I'd love to have the GPS, but your #4 is enough. Personally, I havent done the JB yet, but I will most likely just install a GPS into my car and forget the JB.
