Ever since the US government essentially made it legal to jailbreak devices like the iPhone and iPad there has been a lot of news and interest from individuals and Apple Product owners. Some have wondered what exactly this means for them as consumers and what they could now do with their mobile devices that they couldn’t previously do. Interestingly enough, the government believes that consumers should be able to do what they want with their devices once they own them. However, Apple was quick to explain that adjusting the core operating system and software on your iPhone and iPad would void the warranty.

Jailbreaking your iPad is almost as easy as Jailbreaking and restoring your iPhone 4. The one difference is that for the iPad you’ll need to download a piece of software and run it from your Mac, PC, or Linux computer. Below are instructions for Jailbreaking your iPad:
The process is that simple. Overall, jailbreaking your iPad seems to be something that may be beneficial to those that want to do a lot more with their touch computer than comes out of the box, but for 99% of users, the extra features and functionality is not needed. It seems that customizing the look and feel of the devices is one of the major benefits of a jailbroken iOS device.

Restoring your iPad after jailbreaking it is easy.
I imagine that many who decide to jailbreak their iOS devices will find themselves restoring to the default Apple configurations shortly after trying out the “open” system. While the Jailbreaking process has been streamlined, Apps like Cydia are designed for technical users and developers. The high contrast to usability when compared to standard iOS interaction may just scare those away that are exploring a jailbroken and more “open” mobile device.
