    I would, but this will never happen. The Dev Team is extremely pro open source and frown upon any monetary gain for jailbreaks.

    I think if they need the money for the effort involved I would probably make a donation. However, to just come out with a
    stipulated price I would just wait for a "freebie".

    I would pay/donate, $10-$20 or so for their effort. Ipad2 is my first ipad/iOS device so I am not sure how much I'll benefit from JB yet. I would love to have vlc media player on it. I tried the paid Oplayer and didn't like it. I like vlc on my computer and hope that the iOS flatform is the same.

    if you've never had a jail broken device I'm sure you'll be happy with it. Especially for the stuff it can do and it 'unlocks' your iPad into so many different possibilities of customization.

    Interms of would I pay for the iPad 2 jailbreak, yes. Like some in the post, I think $10-$20 is a decent amount to pay, considering how many people would pay, dev team would make a fortune.

    Who knows, maybe Mr Jobs will pay the developers to stop what they doing...I'm sure since the iPad 2 release there where more purchases made in AppStore because of no JB.

    im sure someone would buy it, upload it to rapidshare or something and make it available to the masses, seems like a pretty logical thing to happen

    I want it unlucked for the extra features, not apps. I'd gladly pay for good ones!

    Yeah. 10 to 20. I could see that. 30 seems like a weird number, 40 hit definite no and 50 equals a definite mass public torrent. (I don't condone in case of a rule being violated for saying that)

    I'd be happy to pay $10-$20 dollars but instead of requiring that fee I think it would go over better if they made it as a donation so not everyone is required to pay that much but maybe set the minimum at $3 or something like that. The way I see it they spent their free time working on the jailbreak and they should be rewarded for their efforts. Plus with the money they get it will allow them to purchase future devices to jailbreak... so I guess one way to look at it would be an investment in future work.

    i would most likely rather donate some (~$10-20). that way it is what i can afford rather than what it is set and yet still contributing and benefiting as well.

    No, I would not. As much as I love the customization that comes from jailbreaking I would not pay for it. I would simply enjoy my iPad 2 the way that it is now, just as I have been doing since I got it.
