Default Re: iPad-ed !!!!

Having 2 issues with my new I-pad 1.

1. Modem is really weak. From the same sport, my laptop catches wi-fi but not this.

2. Today I logged into gmail thru Safari and it immediately kicked me out (signed me out) with a message saying 'no new mail'. I immediately jumped on my laptop and there were 2 new mails. Is this some kind of security thing.

We both will collect our piece of information on JB the IPAD2 and share with each other so that doing it wont be a regret afterwards
the advantage which i came to know is that after JB we are open to thousands of apps free in apple store and third party app as well,

JB is only to access third party apps, free APPS in Apple store are by default accessible to every one and there is no need for JB.

Only issue though, you would need to repeat the JB process and installation every time you upgrade your IPAD.

I've jailbroken the iPad 2 through jailbreakme.com - you need to be on iOS 4.3.3 for this.
Simple to do, and easily reversible in the event that you need to claim warranty on the iPad.

Jailbreak, install Installous, you'll find VLC there.

Viki player is available for free in App store, I found it reasonably good. Try it out.

any flip side of JB ipad2, it is only a firmware breach i suppose but does it not void the warranty part and any major advantage of doing JB

Guys I would like to use the iPad in car. Is there any good case/stand for cars? I would like a robust solution.

Kindly direct me to the link you feel s worth the moolah.

@phamilyman. Jail breaking gives you option to run wild with the iOS but I do no recommend it as the os becomes unstable and prone to virus/phishing attacks. Also its a geek thing and nit meant fir everyone. I remember installing Cydia on iPhone just to play around and then restore it back as I didn't find any bonus.

Yeah, if you need to claim warranty, you can just flash the default FW through iTunes.
Check out Installous, that's all I'm saying

If i get a WiFi+3G AT&T set from the US, will it be network locked or something? I am asking this as i do not want to do jailbreaks and stuff. I want a clean and fully unlocked Ipad.
