Today I decided to give the new jailbreakme.com jailbreak for the iPad 2 a go – just a short while ago in fact. It’s been a long time since I’ve had an iPad jailbroken, and of course the first time I’ve had the iPad 2 jailbroken.
I’m not sure how long I’ll stay with the jailbreak. I’m very keen on iOS 5 – and if there are issues that mean a choice between the OS upgrade and the jailbreak when it’s released, then I’ll almost certainly opt for iOS 5.
For now though my two main reasons for jailbreaking are:
— It’s just been too long and I’m keen to see that state of play with jailbreak for the iPad.
— I really like Ryan Petrich’s DisplayOut jailbreak app, that lets you mirror the iPad screen to a Mac. Mirroring can be done on a stock iPad to Apple TV (via a cable until iOS 5 comes out) but not to a Mac as far as I’m aware. I’m hoping to use it for some app demos soon.
Thus far, I’ve only got SBSettings (old faithful) and DisplayOut installed. So if you’ve got some good iPad 2 jailbreak app / tweak suggestions please share them in the comments.
