    I am wanting to demo an app for a meeting to generate some more business. All I have access to is a VGA input projector, so I have to use the iPad. Is there some code I can use to get my entire App to display on the projector? Even if it's a private API that's fine, it won't be for distribution just demo.

    If you jailbreak it is simple, just google it.

    I'm not really wanting to jailbreak my ipad at the moment. I know it's simple and have jailbroke all my iPhones, but at the moment I'd prefer to leave the iPad as it is.

    It is the easiest way. Backup, jailbreak, do your presentation, and restore to how it was. Its a small inconvenience to accomplish the task you want, and it is reversible as always.

    Well, I had already upgraded to 9.2 iTunes in prep for the new iPhone. Will I still be able to?

    The jailbreak is similar to that of Blackra1n, its just press a button and its done. You don't need to pack a custom ipsw and restore it via iTunes or anything like that.

    Not really sure then, I didn't think it was tied to iTunes but maybe it is. Know of anyone who has a Mac that hasn't upgraded to 9.2 yet?

    No, is there some private api or something i can use that will just allow video out to show my apps off? I can just add it to the code and then debug it on the ipad

    There is a private API, but I am not sure how to use it. I haven't looked into iPad programming too much yet.

    There are a variety of Apps that do this, so i'm sure that it is in the stuff you have access too.

    Perhaps they can point you in the right direction! (i'm not a dev, nor do i play one online ;))

    If you made your own app, there's an official API for displaying on external displays.

    NOT PRIVATE!

    I know there's a public one, but am finding a hard time finding any documentation or tutorials on how to do so.
