Hi guys,

I have a newly jailbroken ipad, which worked perfectly, but I was wondering if there was a solution to this: I would like to be able to upload files from my ipad in an internet browser (which does not need to be Safari). As you know, the "upload" button on most websites does not function on the ipad. Is there a fix for this?

Me too! I'm infuriated that the upload button is deactivated and even apps can upload pictures, but Safari can't.

I admit this is one of the first issues that has really bothered me about the iPad. Uploading is pretty essential ......

If you're trying to upload pictures, and/or link to them, I'm mostly satisfied with using the Photobucket app. It still bugs me though.

I too am pissed that I cannot upload. I think the main reason is that apple restricts access to the file system, and to upload things, you would need to be able to browse through the file system for whatever file you want to upload. Also, Apple's file system is the most confusing mess of a file system I have ever seen; there is a reason they dont want people to have access to it.
