    So has anyone used green poison yet? How do you do it? Can it be undone if you need apple look at yer iPad? Will it work when 4.2 comes out for iPad or will it need another release ( I know it's a rom hole they used but does that mean it stays jb after a firm ware upgrade)

    None of the links above seemed to answer these questions, unless i'm blind, and I am get on a bit, so maybe I missed them.

    For those wondering why others Jailbreak, this post by Abraxus gives a good indication why in this thread:

    Hi all,

    My son's just bagged himself an iPad running 3.2.2 and has tried jailbreaking it using Likera1n, but when he reboots it the Limera1n icon is white.

    When he clicks it he gets the option to install Cydia, but that times out with a error.

    Is Limera1n the best J/B tool to use on his iPad, or is there a better option?

    Any thoughts/suggestions?

    Cheers.

    Well I used Limera1n on 3.2 and I seem to remember it took about 3 attempts for it to install properly. I got the white icon as well. After several reboots it eventually worked.

    Now I'm on 4.2.1 using Redsn0w, tethered but no problem as long as you don't need to reboot or let the battery run down. Even then it's quick to jailbreak it again, you don't have to go through the whole process, you do need access to a computer though.

    TBH a lot of Apps need 4.2 now though so you might be better waiting for the untethered jailbreak.

    Thanks.

    Could you install Cydia whiel you had the white LR icon though?

    Good point and I'll suggest that to him. :thumbsup:

    Yes-especially as Greenpois0n appears to be coming in an untethered form:

    No I don't think I could, I can't remember the exact sequence of events, I do remember a lot of rebooting though to get it to "stick".

    I seem to remember it had to be a hard reboot ie turn it off completely and then turn it back on.

    Ta. I'll get him to try a series of reboots until he gets a "proper" LR icon and then hopefully he will be able to install Cydia after that.

    Just jailbroke mine for SBSettings and some sounds which needs winterboard.

    Is it still jail-broken when you reboot or power off? Thinking of doing mine!

    If it looses battery your need to fire up redsn0w and use the reboot tether option. Takes less than 2 mins.

    My iPhone is running the same for the last month and not had a problem so went for it on my iPad.

    I would go for it mate

    SBSettings, custom themes, custom sounds, many tweaks to list tbh.

    I only survived running on standard for 5 days, jailbreak all the way it makes it so much more customised and make it your own same with my iPhone was jailbroke as soon as I got it out the box.

    If you don't like it. Restore in iTunes and your back to normal.

    this is great for people who havent JB'd yet but ill be leaving the redsn0w 4.2.1 version on mine, its been very stable and so far not been caught out on the battery going flat and having to reboot using my laptop.

    its great to see, cos for a while this release looked like it wasnt gonna happen.

    bring on 4.3 :D

    I've JBed my iPad & iPhone 4 with no issues. I used to have issue with WIFI disconnecting every 30 minutes on my iPad. I upgraded my iPad today to 4.2.1, the WIFI issue seems to have been fixed.

    On my iPhone 4, the Cydia source is partially working. I can't find MyWi, Iconoclasm & shrink in Cydia at this moment
