Let's list the jailbreak apps that work. I'm waiting for my iPad to sync before attempting the jailbreak (damn, backup takes forever), but so far I've noticed this in the forums:

Works:
Backgrounder
OpenSSH

Doesn't work:
SBSettings

What else?

DO NOT INSTALL SBSETTINGS. It works but it screws up your springboard and it will cause you the touch responses to fail when trying to get into cydia to remove sbsettings.

If you end up installing it, simply reboot into safe mode, then head back into cydia and then remove sbsettings.


#2 update: the following DOES NOT WORK:

* Kirikae
* Backgrounder (installs and seems to be working but without kirikae)
* emoji
* SBSettings
* AppSync OS 3.1

SBSettings works great! Just respring once installed and all issues go away!

Clicking on processes crashes my iPad. All other toggles seem to work though. Anyone else see the same thing?

Anyone get 3G Unrestrictor to work? That would push me over the edge and convince me to jailbreak my iPad.

just confirmed "Music Controls" has been updated for ipad. (lets you use the ipod music controls on backgrounded 3rd party music apps like pandora) its $4.99 but comes with a 5 day free trial. works great.

scratch that. I found a bug. it was working fantastic with pandora. but I went into the ipod app and it completely locked up the ipad. had to restart it with home/power. did it everytime I would load ipod or pandora after that. I uninstalled music controls, deleted pandora and redownloaded and now pandora and ipod is working again. I hope the author fixes it cause it did work great at first.

Yes SBSettings got an update I believe today? In any case, it works fine! Just don't click the Processes button, cause that resprings the iPad.
Is dock crashing on anybody else? Sb was working fine...the tried to add Settings an a couple of others but is crashing big time.
