    I got this at launch and still use it regularly. Its too buggy to leave on all the time, and I don't want the windows all the time. But turning it off/on takes all of 10 seconds, so its hardly a big deal to do so when needed. I use it to run various streaming videos while I surf the web and...

    SBSettings on Ipad3 5.1.1

    Ive tried to install it about 50 times and its yet to make it. GIven that its past midnight now hopefully Cydia clears up.

    I've been using it for Netflix, Twitch TV, etc. and it works great for that. Its too annoying to have to hit full screen every time to leave it on during normal use, so you do have to re-spring it on/off when you need it, but respringing takes about 10 seconds so not that big of a deal. It...

    WARNING! RetinaPad NOT Compatible With iPad3!

    Why would anyone try to install retina pad on the iPad 3? It automatically displays iPhone retina content.

    Split keyboard not working?

    Works fine for me. I find it useless though, the keys are too small. Obviously they had to be smaller to split them, but not iPhone size... or you could have a couple settings...

    Overlooked feature of the new iPad

    That sounds great, but is this something you have to have on both devices to get or will the bluetooth keyboard I already have benefit? edit: geez the specification on my tablet keyboard that was released less than a year ago list bluetooth 1.2... that must be a decade old. Well the keyboard...

    The new iPad was a painless set up backing up fom my iPad 2

    My iPad 2 folders were with a jailbreak tweak so I could have full page, more rows/collumns and multiple pages per folder so when I restored it had no folders at all. Took me a hour to reorganize everything. Painless other than that detail, can't blame them for that of course.

    The "new" iPad getting hot. Possible Issue?

    Mine gets a bit hot too. I liked the days of a nice cool device, but not a big deal as long as there arn't real overheating issues.

    if you sold your ipad2 for ipad3, how much did you get it?

    Taking it to Apple for service under the default warranty (and you could still buy Apple Care+ anyway) is completely independent of where you buy it. You don't need an Apple receipt or anything they just check the serial number and if it was sold less than a year ago its covered. The...

    Retina Display rumor

    The thread is obviously about other tablets being produced with equivalent screens and Apple theoretically trying to prevent their release with exclusivity agreements. If they can't produce enough for a mass produced tablet, its completely irrelevant.

    Retina Display rumor

    Heh, its not really impossible. If any supplier could do it with no problem it would have been done long ago. There are probably sitll only a few major suppliers that could make enough for a mass market device, and Apple could in fact try to get them to sign an exclusivity deal in exchange for...

    will the ipad 3 be faster than most gaming consoles?

    Nope. The iPad 3 doesn't have nearly enough power to run something like Uncharted 3, Gears of War 3, Mass Effect, etc. and the development tools most companies use are not nearly as developed as 360/ps3 ones. Plus noone will make apps just for the iPad 3, they have to support at least the iPad...

    if you sold your ipad2 for ipad3, how much did you get it?

    I sold my black 16g wifi iPad 2 for $350 a week ago. Had I expected to sell and upgrade I would have done it before the price drop and gotten a lot more, but my iPad 2 had two corners somewhat significantly dented, one scratch, some light bleeding and a slight screen defect so I figured it...

    ZaggFolio for iPad 3

    Yeah there is no way my folio case (can't remember its name..) won't work with the iPad 3. It might be a little snug, but thats not necessarily a bad thing anyway. Given you can find iPad 2 cases cheap now on Amazon I'd probably look to those first rather than paying full price for a just...

    Won't retina display become more a problem than an improvement for users?

    Its like some of you guys have never viewed an image above its native resolution. DVDs look better upscaled on HDTVs than they do on SDTVs. I enlarge photos on the PC all the time. Play games under my max PC resolution to improve framerate. The iPad's resolution was perfectly fine for the...

    Comex Releases JB Fix - CCK Now Working on iPad

    So the app store media players cant read directly off the cck because they arnt programed to see that directory... but there are a few media players on cydia, does anyone know why they cant read off the CCK? Maybe something could eventually be released?

    iFile v1.6.0-1 - Now With Full Dropbox Support!

    Dropbox is an online file storage system. Upload some files to dropbox, access them from any web browser, most mobile devices, etc. Many many iOS apps use dropbox as a method to get around the limited file system... using as an export option for documents, art files, whatever. With...

    iFile v1.6.0-1 - Now With Full Dropbox Support!

    Hmm? Ive never received anything about dropbox charging normal users, have been using it free, and it still says its free on their website. My storage is near 4 gigs too from a couple promotions I did last year.

    Confused about CCK

    As I learned today, it does have to copy to the iPad. You select to open in a player like avplayer hd and it copies it into avplayers import folder. You can then delete it from within avplayer (or whatever) when you want to clear the space. For my 16 gb with the ton of space I use on apps it...

    External USB storage Support on JB iPad 2 4.3.3

    But if its an externally powered usb drive it shouldn't need power from the ipad. I was looking around earlier and saw a long tutorial on setting up an external harddrive though, that may be outdated but I dont think its as simple as just plugging it in like the thumbdrives that work.

    Comex Releases JB Fix - CCK Now Working on iPad

    Why would it make any difference to the end user if its userland or not? If anything, they'd prefer JBMe because its as easy to do as a jailbreak possibly can be. I know userland can be fixed quickly by apple and boot rom takes hardware change, but that doesn't matter at all to the end user who...

    Comex Releases JB Fix - CCK Now Working on iPad

    Well when youve got the option "open in" it doesnt make it obvious that it cant heh, doesn't seem that unreasonable. But alright if thats the way it works thats the way it works, better than nothing. edit: and yes thanks to comex and saurik for getting it up pretty fast =p

    Comex Releases JB Fix - CCK Now Working on iPad

    Anyone opened videos yet? Or on another iDevice previously? I have some .avi videos on a SD stick that I tried to open in VLC, and they seem to take about 3 minutes to open. Transferring the video? I though you could read it directly with iFile or is there some trick I dont know?

    WiFi Booster - Paid Tweak

    I couldnt get it to work at all. It installed but first I got a connection refused error when I clicked on a flash item. Then I reset and got some food error. Reset again, same. Uninstall/reinstall, same. So now I just left it uninstalled, oh well..

    Yes, in an effort to get it out as fast as possible he cut 4.3.1 and 4.3.2 and will add them later. Update to 4.3.3, save your blobs and you are good to go. Anyone who gets an actual error text box when they try just reset your iPad worked for me. As stated above when it is successful it does...

    As long as you saved your blobs there is no reason to wait, its unlikely any bugs would be a huge issue and if they are you can just go back.

    I just don't see why he needed to put up a 3rd teaser. Based on taking the post it note from apples updating page which is short team it seemed to imply it was imminent. When you put up another teaser just a week ago why a third if you arnt actually quite done yet.
