    Is it possible to run iOS 9 on my ancient iPad 1 if I jailbreak it? If not, does anyone know of an email app for the iPad 1 that still works to check gmail?

    Thanks

    P.S. I have no idea why it says "Exclamation" in the title of this thread!

    There's no way to run iOS 9 on an iPad 1, jailbreak or not. The hardware of the iPad 1 is not capable of supporting iOS 9.

    P.S., I've edited the title of the thread.

    I use the native "mail" app on my iPad1 to access an assortment of email addresses.
    Have you tried adding your gmail account to Mail via the Settings page?
