What are they?

I won't be using backgrounder or any themes, and I won't be using too many 3rd party apps......I already know it voids the warrenty, but this can easily be solved with a restore.

I am worried if I jailbreak my iPad it will make it have less battery life and/or it will make it slower. I haven't jailbroken any iDevices in a while so I want to make sure before I jailbreak my iPad

I haven't had any of those problems. Someone will be along to tell you though that it's possible that you won't be able to restore the iPad completely and the really sneaky spy techs (aka - the pimply 17 year old kids) will be able to tell at the Apple store.

Frankly, I'm not worried.

:D

The reasons you listed as things you wont be doing is basically the only reason I JB my ipad. But if you have any issues you can just restore and get it back to normal.


Con: Being away from your computer when something goes wrong or you want to perform a restore.

Only if you are too stupid to restore it before you take it back.

No one is attacking you my friend, I promise.

No need to invoke Hitler's name in a discussion about the iPad. :confused:

I won't even touch the Hitler reference...... Wow.... What a freak....

On the subject at hand..... I have no interest in JB my iPad. But I really see no downside, if that is what you want to do. I don't want to, but if I did I would not hesitate...

Look up Godwin's law. Adb hom attacks, aka, against the man attacks, I.e calling someone stupid, pretty much means you've already lost the argument.

I never called you stupid, and there was never an argument to begin with. You're making a mountain here out of a mole hill.

You in my post was not referring to you specifcally as in James Goddard, it was in regards to "you all."

;)

I'm not sure why you're so uptight today, but you should really calm down a bit - it will make your life a lot easier. No one is attacking you, and I have no intentions of arguing over an iPad nor have I ever.

Lol, you win. You didn't move one thread "discussion" to another and you didn't counter my legit answer with an ad hom attack. Happy now or will you need the last word?

Replacement

Hi
Just to clear this up I got my iPad replaced by apple store today.
I have had my iPad for about 4 weeks and have the wifi screen brightness fault, so on Saturday I took my imported jail broken iPad back to the apple store (after I restored it), I told them about the wifi fault the guy looked at my ipad hooked it up to his Mac did a hard restore checked to see if this had fix the wifi problem as it had not he ordered me a replacement iPad which I collected from store today

So to clear this up you can jail break and return to store no problems

Here's a scenario:

What if you have a JB'ed iPad and it suddenly dies....I mean totally dead so you can't even restore it. Won't Apple see that you voided the warranty making you SOL?

If it's completely dead how do you expect THEM to find out?
