Is it true that after you jb, you will be able to use the camera/card reader to store files, music, movies, ect? I have the iPad2 16g, and it's not enough memory.

Having rooted my SGS, I'd like to point out: Do not jailbreak just because. And study the process carefully so that you'll know precisely what you're doing. ;)

Thank for the guide. My brother jail broke his ipad and now he can't use it. I bet he was being a dirty pirate. But now I'm tasked to fix it and this guide certainly will help.

My understanding is that tethered means that on a reboot/shutdown/drain battery (and possibly a respring, but not sure about that one) your iProduct would need to be connected (tethered) to your computer (mac, pc, laptop, etc) on startup.

Okay. So wait a minute...

So I am having problems with my untethered jailbroken iPad 1 running iOS 5.1.1. I don't think it's a jailbreak related problem because I am having the same issue with my NOT-jailbroken iPod Touch 4th generation. I want to reset my iPad by pressing the Home and Power buttons for 10 seconds. I CAN do this because I have an untethered jailbreak??

Wanna know what the problem is? My apps from the Official Apple App store hang on "Installing" phase. They don't ever install. ??? I dunno what happened.

Yes. You can do the reset with your iPad (with the hold home and sleep buttons procedure). Your jail break will not be affected. Just make sure you hold the buttons until you see the Apple logo appear (you may or may not see the "slide to turn off" text). Once you see the logo, you can release the buttons.

There never will be a jailbreak available for iOS 5.1. All you can do is upgrade and wait for the iOS 6 jailbreak.
Nobody, not even the jailbreak developers, can tell you when to expect the iOS 6 jailbreak. You should subscribe to the official iOS 6 jailbreak status thread.http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/89458-official-ios6-jailbreak-status-thread.html any announcement about a jailbreak for iOS 6 will be made in the first post in the thread.
