    I could use this in some areas of my college where I get weak signal. Does it kill battery life though?

    theoretically it will drain battery faster. see, while the ipad might not need to power its "receiving signal", but it will need to power up a bit more on the "sending" signal..

    in general, expect more battery drain and hotter surface..

    Very illegal. You are highjacking/stealing there bandwidth that they pay for. Just like if you were to hook a shut off your power an then trench a line over and hook up behind there meter.

    Don't get me wrong, i am all about using someone's Internet if they arent smart enough to lock it down, I have three different networks that I switch between for when I download torrents and do other activities of a frowed upon nature.

    That and I feel jt is ny responsibility if they leave it as the default password to log into it, change the password and then setup a rerdirect that every site they go to goes to LIVE NUDE CATS Figure it's my civic duty to educate them through experiences they won't forget.

    For example;
    If you pay a hefty price for the best Internet available, would you like your neighbors using it just because you may not know how to put a password on your router?

    Couldn't do anything in the bedroom, hmm. Seriously, this app sounds really useful. I'll have to check it out. Lots of times I get weak signals and can't connect. Thanks for the lead.

    It removes the cutoff limit in the operating system which prevents weak signals from being displayed. It does NOTHING to the hardware in terms of boosting signal.
    The theory behind this is that the cut-off point is a little too aggressive, and you are sometimes able to connect to a weak signal using this tweak which otherwise would not be available.

    Okay, quite stupid question but when i Jailbreak my Ipad2. Is it still possible to buy apps and games from Itunes? Also do i still get updates with the apps i will be buying? the only updated i wont be getting is the OS. right?

    Right!

    The iPad will act just the same in this situation: You can buy apps from the App Store, receive updates and be just the same as if UNjailbroken. In fact, if you did nothing else to the iPad but jail break it, the only way you'd know it was jailbroken would be by the adding of the Cydia icon. It behaves no different - just has access to other "stuff."

    The only thing you have to do different is not accept any upgrades offered to you by iTunes.

    Hope this reassures.
