    I upgraded to iOS 5 on my ipad. I used the latest RedSn0w to perform a tethered jailbreak and install Cydia. However, when I launch Cydia, Manage My Account, Featured, Themes, FAQ, etc all slide onto a blank screen when clicked. I have done a tethered reboot but get the same thing. Any thoughts?

    Nevermind. After a few hours it fully populated including all my previously saved SHSH's.

    The only issue now is that iBooks won't work.

    The iPad 1 can be jailbroken, just not the iPad 2. It is a tethered jailbreak that is pretty much useless for now except for enabling the multitasking gestures.

    Most of the jailbreak apps are not updated for iOS 5 yet and it does make home sharing and iBooks totally useless for the time being also.
