    Video mirroring (via Apple TV) is the single feature available on iPad 2 & 3 that I would like to have on my iPad 1. Would jail breaking make this available and, if so, how? Thanks in advance.

    I have never understood, by the way, why video mirroring was not originally possible on te iPad. It's just a normal part of the OS for Windows and, I assume Mac.

    Yes. You can use a program called displayout. However I believe you can only use a component cable, VGA cable or HDMI, you can't use AirPlay.

    Edit: I never saw the apple tv bit.

    Thanks, DisplayOut looks like what I want. Yes I was talikng about AirPlay

    I would really like to have video mirroring but I don't want to buy an iPad 2/3 just for that feature alone. It could be enough to convince me to jail break. I have iOS 5.1 which I thinks that it will have to be a tethered JB.

    Out of interest, do you want to mirror everything or just some things, I ask because there is an app called TVOut Genie for stock iPads which I used on my iPad 1, I can't remember off the top of my head how much extra mirroring it gave me but I do recall it was reasonably substantial.

    Having looked on the Cydia site, there is mention of compatible cables so perhaps DisplayOut doesn't work via AirPlay:thumbsdown:.

    I was thinking of full mirroring but the main thing that I want is web browsing.

    I just bought TVOut Genie and, based on 1 minute's worth of testing, it might be what I have been looking for.

    Thanks for the info.

    No, you must use a video cable, such as the HDMI or VGA adapter for iPad / iPhone.
