    That changed over the last 24-48hrs.

    Now there are a few different rumors saying it won't be released for a couple of days or until 4.0 gets released in the wild..

    You answered your own question up there.

    Their quote was "at some point after (don’t ask when!)".

    Comex said on twitter that it would be a few days after Friday (which of course is today). So I'm thinking maybe early next week, but we'll see.

    Good news nevertheless. It may be finally time to take a 2nd look at the iPad once the jailbreak comes along. Jailbreaking made my iPhone infinitely more enjoyable to use for the time I had it and I wouldn't dream of using my iPod Touch without it.

    O/T: Man, that's been the song I've been playing on loop for the last two days, too. ;) (I'm a new fan so it's all awesome right now.)

    Topic? Um, I've got nothing, I don't think there's been any news. Get your SHSH blobs backed up if you're waiting on the iPhone portion of the JB.

    That title really gave me some hope, and despite having read it straight from the Twitter feed, I hoped against hope. Just so anxious to see the JB!

    More OT, but what song is this? I don't listen to radio all that much, so have no idea what the kids are listening to these days lol

    What are people's expectations from the jailbreak? What is it that you are looking forward to the most? Personally I'm pretty happy with my iPad the way it is but I'm curious to know what will be tempting me to jailbreak. My iPhone is mainly because I wanted to be able to use MyWi and not have to fork out for a 3G iPad :)

    I want multitasking bad. Its a must on something this big. Annnddd...thats about it haha. I dont know anything else it can do, but multitasking is huge for me. Maybe a file system so i can download whatever i want from safari? And opening up the camera kit, that will be a huge plus for me.

    I had originally wanted jailbreak to stream my non compatible movies but Air Video HD is doing a damn good job. Currently, benefits I expect from a jailbreak are full use of the USB port and an NES /SNES emulator. I will be waiting for word on these before I take the plunge.

    Oh, it's actually old-ish, it's a Coheed and Cambria song. :) (I think the prior poster spotted my avatar.)

    I'm actually not that interested in a JB for the iPad at this time; but I am watching the release like a hawk because it will also be usable for iPhone 3GS and I would like to use MyWi. I'm sure there's a lot of cool stuff to be done, though. Consider the custom springboards for iPhone that are made possible via JB (screenshots in thread):

    Spirit was supposed to be made available on the same day that the WiFi + 3G iPad was released. There was a blog post today that says that it will be sometime after the release. I wouldn't expect anything until the release of iPhone OS 4.0.
