    I have a jailbroken iPhone 4 and do many things an un-jailbroken iPhone couldn't do.
    But, a few weeks ago I got an iPad 2 and was wondering once it's jailbroken, (and whenever the jailbreak comes out) what can you do different. Obviously most of the things you can with the iPhone, but is there anything different or special for the iPad?

    Lots of stuff man. I went from an jail broken iPad 1 to an iPad 2 and I feel so constrained. I've fallen back to using my iPhone more because of it.

    There's a lot of secondary things I want to jailbreak my iPad 2 for(emulators, Safari download manager, Browser Changer iFile, et), but the primary reason is to enable those multitasking gestures(I'm on Windows 7).

    Yes, I've fallen back to my Touch4g, the retina screen and jb make it what the iPad2 could be.

    multitask gestures can be achieved without jailbreaking. All you have to do is buy the xcode on appstore for $5 and install it. Then open the app while attaching the ipad, developer and it will ask you username and password. Just click cancel. Now look under the setting of your ipad, you will gesture on or off. There you go.
    Since you don't have mac, you can use one of your friends or co workers mac. It only has to enable once.

    works fine, just can't disable it in the settings menu which gets a little annoying lol.

    cause when your trying to play fruit ninja or something and get carried away.

    Emulators are almost a moot point considering what atari and sega have released lately. Glad to see them getting onboard finally.

    I have to agree that I feel so constrained with no JB for the iPad 2. I'm almost regretting selling my first gen before the the JB was released for the iPad 2.

    Just apps. You get whatever you want that's available for ipad 2.
    I personally think once you have ipad JB, you will never use iphone as much(espcially at home).

    Nothing earth shattering in terms of apps but definitely ipad 2 is more enjoyable to use for long period of time. You will love it!!!!

    You don't even have to purchase it. As long as you install Xcode 3 which is free on the Apple website, it works just as well.

    The iPad 2 is my first iDevice. As I can send / receive files bypassing iTunes but with wifi using Goodreader and iStorage there are a few minor things I am missing without JB.
    As soon the JB comes available, I'll try:

    - sshd, so use the iPad as an ssh server
    - BT stack so I can use a BT GPS
    - using the $1 Cydia 4 row keyboard as I think the separate shift key for numbers is very annoying.
