    If I jailbreak my iPad 2 can it become a wifi hotspot with MyWi ? This question is not often addressed in forums and I have seen conflicting answers in the two discussions I found. I don't want the risks of JailBreak the iPad if it can't be a hotspot. Anybody know for sure.

    Did you even try Google?

    A search for "mywi ipad" give this page as the first hit (the developer's site):
    http://intelliborn.com/mywi.html

    Which has this listed:

    "Create an iPhone® WiFi HotSpot or iPad® WiFi HotSpot"

    Yes there is, do you have some sort of aversion to searching for things?

    Sorry

    I am not very familiar with Apple products, so when I search I don't always have good recognition of what I am looking at. I am sorry . . . I won't ask questions on this forum anymore.

    theres no jailbreak if youve updated your iPad2 to iOS 5...... if youre still on 4.3.3, then you can do an untethered jailbreak from www.jailbreakme.com

    ah, I knew there was an iOS 5 Jailbreak, and it said iPad, didn't realise it didn't include iPad 2, but apparently there is an iPad 2/iPhone 4s iOS 5 Jailbreak, its just not quite ready for release yet, so it shouldn't be long.
