So... no thread about this yet? Surprised...

I figure since there's no Jailbreaking Forum anymore, would a thread be fine? Mods, please feel free to lock / delete if this isn't the case.

Hmm, so it's out.

Technically jailbreaking tablets is now illegal in the US, but who's going to enforce/catch you? Ridiculous new rule anyway. The end consumer can do whatever they so please as long as they don't do anything illegal with it.

Atm I see no need to jailbreak my iPad, but that might change. Color me undecided.

I decided to try it, but I get an error right at the beginning and it fails. No harm done, but its not working for me. "ERROR: Could not get com.apple.mobile.installation.plist"

Have you had no problems with it? I'm worried cuz I've read about people getting stuck on the apple logo after the new JB but sounds like it occurs more with the phones..
