    Only if you are on the untethered betas you can't connect to it. Sorry.

    Of course, you may use the ZAGGmate with a jailbroken iPad. As long as you haven't disabled Bluetooth somehow, it will work just fine. It will also hook up to an iPhone whether or not it is jailbroken. I use mine on my iPad all the time using LogMeIn to control my computers at home. You can also connect it to any other HID compliant device, such as many laptops, HTPC's, etc. It's just a regular Bluetooth Keyboard with some special iPad functions stuck inside a shock resistant, attractive aluminum case. I hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    Please actually read the first post before you reply.
    Yes the I a jail broken iPad will work with the zagg mate but betas for the untethered 4.2.1 jailbreak are having problems with Bluetooth, so they disabled it in the betas.

    I remember reading somewhere that people have gotten that to work. But I think you have to get vmware to use the USB port that your iPad is on.

    Dude, maybe you should re-read your first post - you didn't say anything about an untethered beta! you simply said 4.2.1 jail broken!

    Yes I did. Are you blind? I said" Only if you are on the UNTETHERED BETAS you can't connect to it. Sorry."

    Untethered betas have had working bluetooth for the last 2 versions of the redsn0w beta so that issue has been resolved for quite some time. Zagg's response was valid and correct.
    I have an untethered 4.2.1 using "monte" and bluetooth is fine. Works great with my keyboard too...
    No need for everyone to get their knickers in a twist with out of date facts.

    Actually, that was my bad and I MUST be somewhat blind - I thought your were the original poster in the thread (the original post never mentioned untethered or beta)! My mistake.... :) I thought that Zagg was actually replying to the original poster, not you, to be honest!

    Sorry, thats ok. Let's all try to be friends here. As for F4780y, dude chill out. I was talking about the early betas because OBVIOUSLY the original poster is on the early betas. I did not know that they have released new betas with bluetooth working. Why didn't you just say that? "No need for everyone to get their knickers in a twist"

    Awww, and everyone is friends again... :)

    But i dont agree that it is OBVIOUS the OP is on an early beta. His 3 posts indicate to me that he is not untethered at all and may not even be jailbroken... He is just doing research to ensure his kb continues to work after a jailbreak and is confused by the 4.2.1 jb information available...

    But maybe I am the blind one :D
    His query is well answered... Lets move on friends :ipad-keyboard:

    Good point, he didn't say what op he has so he is probably confused. Oh well...:)
    Maybe I'm blind too...

    if u want versions, software used etc.. let me know

    but i thought id just post to say....

    cut the story short i did jailbreak my ipad (tethered)
    i factory restored
    zaggmate worked fine

    hey presto zaggmate worked

    so i guess a tethered jailbreak works.
