    Hey guys, today I bought a 1st generation iPad off of my friend. Now, I am familiar with jailbreaking, but I haven't had a jailbroken iDevice in a while. I was just wondering, what is the best tool to jailbreak this iPad? It runs iOS 5.1.1. Currently, I am considering redsn0w, sn0wbreeze, and absinthe...does anyone recommend one of these over the others? Are there any major drawbacks to a certain one? Any and all feedback is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    I'd say go with absinthe 2.0.4 too

    redsn0w is what I used all the way up to iOS 6. My suggestion would be that.

    Yup. I have an old ipad 1 like you. The most recent iOS is 5.1.1.

    It's pretty much used as a portable DVD player for road trips for the kids. I put 64GB of movies which keeps them occupied for long trips.
