Great..here comes the 1,000s of “HELP! I messed up on my jailbreak" Threads, or the “there's something wrong with my iPad because it's jailbroken" Threads.

Woo hoo! Another reason to look forward to Friday. It is a userland JB too, so it should be untethered. But do backup your SHSHs people. Unless of course saurik has Cydia doing that.

I can't wait to see all the cool things you'll be able to do with the 30pin to USB adapter!

I sense Pirate iPad Apps around the corner :mad:
Jailbreaking isn't all about pirated apps. My phone is jail broken and i don't have any pirated apps myself. For me it's about control. Something Apple doesn't want us to have.

Now if we could plug in a USB HD for uploading docs and even better DOWNLOADING files from Safari / torrents etc then things will get really cool and I can ditch my Macbook Air!

It does suck. I have a huge amount of respect for iPhone, iPod, and ipad developers but jail breaking gives us some of the things apple never did or did not for years.

Why do I want it? Two major reasons:

- So I can have multitasking, NOW, not in September.
- So I can have task bar notifications for my Email, Push Notifications, and Calendar alerts, something my first Nokia (the first one that had Snake) did but my iPhone and my iPad dont.

Its little things like these that make them enjoyable for me. Not everyone pirates software.

I guess it pays off to get your apps out for early launch, imagine iWorks suite etc will be heavily downloaded once cracked and a fair bit of revenue lost for developers. Maybe Apple have upped up security with their development kits against pirates.

One thing that dawned on me yesterday is that I have already spent more on iPad apps then I did for the last 3 years on iPhone apps.

I never felt I was getting my moneys worth with games etc for the iPhone but with the bigger screen and faster chip I feel the iPad brings apps to a much bigger level and I feel I am getting value for my money. I feel more engaged, more impressed visually and sonically. I also feel it now gives handheld game devices a run for their money!!

I forgot about taskbar notifications, surely OS 4.0 will take advantage of this missing feature

Honestly I think the jb'ers are just enjoying messing with people now because of all the whining that's been going on, and I've given up trying to guess. I think the demand is beginning to outstrip their patience or something. That said, I need the next iPhone jb badly so I can wifi my iPad. Got stuck with unbreakable firmware out of the box. /twitter
