    Adblocker and Alertartist

    Adblocker was updated tonight for compatibility. Essential app and always one of the first I install.

    Quasar

    It's such a unique tweak and potentially more useful on my iPad 3 with the greater resolution. I wish this developer would fix the obvious issue with how you activate it or not, and make it more flexible to use.

    Official iPad2 Jailbreak Thread

    It was probably born in the million and one calm explanations I've seen you give other members (myself included) when they've freaked out over some dumb mistake. I don't know how you do it. But I know we're all thankful for it and if that's the worst rant you have, let 'em rip haha.

    Official iPad2 Jailbreak Thread

    With 3 independent jailbreaks I can't help but hope we'll just wake up to a new gen 3 jailbreak thereby making this the perfect device, but sometimes there is some real lag time in between proof and pudding. I hope they are working together.

    For those that got the new iPad - what device did you upgrade from?

    I upgraded from 2. This is an extremely nice bump. I think tablet people understand how important a good screen is, that's the primary interaction going on. Otherwise it's just a better iPad 2 which was already far and away the best thing going.

    First impression, well....underwhelmed

    I agree, it's a way more subtle upgrade than I expected. It's after reading for some time that it "hits" me. I think it's the best e-reader screen ever created and that includes browsing. After a while it becomes hard for me to drag my eyes away from the crisp screen but it's not something that...

    Ultimate List of Jailbreak Tweaks

    It doesn't solve the issue, but Action Menu with its "select all" button is helpful. In lots of situations.

    Any Cydia apps to change rotation of Iphone apps on Ipads

    RetinaPad has a beta feature to run them in landscape instead, but it isn't well formed. I would still invest in it as it makes the apps look beautiful and natural.

    To upgrade or not to upgrade...

    Go for the replacement and jailbreak ASAP. You can write down your tweaks and backup your apps and data to restore. It's not simply the new features, which will be fun and useful. The speed boost is considerable in the browser and UI. This jailbreak runs more optimized than my 4.3.3 did despite...

    IntelliscreenX

    I'm using it, it works perfectly. I don't think I could do without it on my iPhone or iPad now. Expensive tweak but worth it. Edit: durp, I didn't see the swipe question, I added nothing of value here! Sorry. Still a great tweak.

    Any working Cydia Terminal Apps

    I'm using OpenSSH combined with Prompt from the regular app store! It's made by Panic so it's incredibly beautiful. Also a universal app. Just enter 127.0.0.1 and your user info and your into root. I got the idea from the iDownload blog.

    Official iPad2 Jailbreak Thread

    I jailbroke 5 devices so far (family jailbreak center, ha), and every single one I had to do from a fresh install. Different PC's etc. I'm surprised it's not part of the basic instruction though it seems some people haven't had the issue.

    Official iPad2 Jailbreak Thread

    I had to reset my iPad 2 and 4S to get the command line jailbreak to work earlier. It was well worth it, the cloud still had my contacts, etc. and pretty much all my data lives in Dropbox. This new jailbreak is so fast! Just flys compared to 4.3.3

    Best note taking app for iPad

    Seems like the worst bug involves any usage of "&" in your file. Actually, sounds like there are quite a few bugs in 3.0. There seemed to be some pressure there to release the upgrade. Hopefully .1 drops soon. In just some casual usage I have to say it seems like a really large improvement...

    Official iPad2 Jailbreak Chat Thread

    This wait is killing me I really hope they feel impatient to release it. With every one of these pictures I thought next we would be downloading. With rumors of iPad 3 launching a month or so away I have to give this round to Apple!

    Best note taking app for iPad

    That's a good point. Also I agree, translating the text afterward is both less accurate and slower to improve the recognition engine as you aren't making immediate corrections all the time.

    Best note taking app for iPad

    Wow, they finally shipped 3.0! Good to hear your recommendation, I'm downloading it again as I thought the handwriting engine wasn't up to rendering speed before. It even has the MyScript engine now for recognition (with an IAP). I see NoteShelf got big updates too for you other stylus note...

    Frustrating, but obviously it wasn't all ready to go like everyone thought a week ago. Was sort of hoping it was going to drop during CES in the midst of all the other crazy tech news, now I feel like it could be a big waiting game again. It's just a shame that it's like this to get the usage...

    Tons of stuff, but one of my favorites is having true control of my files so i can move them between programs. iFile is worth every penny. I was on vacation and i had a video on my home pc and trying to find a way to get it in my favorite program was pure hell. I have never been so...

    Stolen

    No if you had the 3G version it has dedicated GPS. Did you enable the Find My iPad ability in settings. Maybe not it seems. I'm really sorry to hear about this, you might want to contact Apple.

    Are you able to track it by Find My iPad capabilities?

    IOS5 Jailbreak Strategy Guide

    Yea, the speed boost was really obvious to me too after upgrading. I sure do miss not being locked out of my own device again though. Sometimes the frustration of this cat and mouse game really makes me wish for more compelling alternatives.

    I updated too. Honestly, I believe they will either crack that or not at all given the A4 situation. I'd rather not get caught before the new firmware and it seems that Hill was giving a clear signal.

    UNTETHERED JAILBREAK For iPhone 4S and iPad 2 WORKING!

    It's sort of a dice throw, when Apple releases 5.0.2 they will stop signing 5.0.1 I'm really hoping he tells us what he's working on before it drops or a lot of us could be stuck on 5 but that doesn't mean things are hopeless. They say a 5.0 JB is coming for A4 devices. I find it hard to...

    A4 untethered is out and pod2g stated not to update any device to 5.0.2 Still waiting on word if A5 device is a go...also, assume this means 5.0.1 is safe for all? Update: The A4 untethered only works on 5.0.1 We really need him to advise A5 users...

    Which Smartphone

    Yea the reports on battery life of the Galaxy Nexus is very disappointing. I'm surprised it reviewed so well in spite of it, but I guess people expected it. I was one button press away from pulling the trigger and trying out a Nexus on Verizon the other night. But I decided already being on...

    Raft of cheaper tablets cheapening the iPad experience?

    I think the Fire is a fine $200 device, and I own a Galaxy Tab 8.9 that is arguably nicer to hold than the iPad 2. I gave my dad a Xoom to browse on and he adores it. But none of those devices would I prefer to use day to day given the choice. That's the thing though. I owned an expensive...

    UNTETHERED JAILBREAK For iPhone 4S and iPad 2 WORKING!

    What if A5 doesn't work on 5.0.1? I'm not sure we can use our blobs to downgrade do its all a calculated gamble. I'd rather be sure a jailbreak than risk not having a blob.

    UNTETHERED JAILBREAK For iPhone 4S and iPad 2 WORKING!

    Don't upgrade your A5 devices yet is my advice. It sounds like they are working too, but he hasn't said "upgrade" yet like he did with the others.

    Raft of cheaper tablets cheapening the iPad experience?

    It actually sounds like the jailbreak is coming per the dev team members now. I think the added freedom to the filesystem writ large is something I want, if not useful to most owners. It frustrates that Apple makes that choice so hard, because my Android devices that do allow me aren't as...

    We're not sure yet. podg didn't say what firmware his a5 units are on, though his a4 jailbreak works on 5.0.1 Hopefully we'll hear something before the update.

    Which Smartphone

    I've been looking at this device, it's pretty amazing. I read today that the processor will be downgraded because it doesn't play well with 4G but it sure is beautiful. Could I use a phone this large I wonder? It's much better spec'd than the Nexus for the most part, I imagine it will be quite...

    That was surprising news. It will be tempting if the other jailbreak doesn't come to go back for a bit on a fresh install. Also, it's only the AT&T version.

    It apparently was to solve an error message that some users were getting with their iPhone. Oh how I would love to believe it was about Tim Cook's new reign of openness. Waiting to hear whether this jailbreak works on A5 devices is killing me. If you were his friend wouldn't you shove your...

    IOS5 Jailbreak Strategy Guide

    Apple released a new version of 5.0.1 for iPhone 4S. Which is odd. Supposedly it makes hacking Siri much easier but no one can say what else, at least that I've heard.
