    Default Apple TV and Jailbroken iPad 2 work?
    I bought the new Apple AV adaptor and downloaded Display Out app. Does not work as I get the error message "need to upgrade to 5.1." when plugging in the adaptor.

    Will Apple TV work with my jailbroken iPad 2 running 5.0.1?

    I just want to mirror my iPad with my HDTV for movies, games and internet.

    Thanks!

    Come on guys!
    Will the Apple TV work with my jailbroken iPad 2? The hdmi cable with the Apple digital av adaptor does not work with 5.0.1. Even after downloading Digital Out.
    Just want to mirror to HDTV.
    Thanks!

    Can't you just enable AirPlay mirroring on your iPad?

    You shouldn't need a cable to connect your iPad2 to your AppleTV. It is a 2nd (or 3rd) gen right?
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    Hi.
    Right now, I have the adaptor and cable but have not bought the Apple TV yet.
    I wanted to know if Apple tv would work before buying it.
    Thanks!

    You could just goto the Apple website and it'll tell you there.
    Look for Apple TV and read the specs.
    I'm guessing it'll have "AirPlay mirroring with iPad 2 and New iPad" somewhere.
    If not look under iPad 2 on the Apple website and that will probably tell you.

    And btw, it does mirror with the iPad3 not sure about iPad2 I think it does.

    Hi man,
    My iPad is fully jailbroken, and i have an Apple Tv too, and don't worry, you will be able to mirror your iPad to the tv without any issues, with the default iOS 5 mirroring action. Everything will work perfectly don't worry

    Hey, thanks for replying.
    Got it all set up and works great. JB iPad 2 works perfectly with Apple TV.
    Very happy with the way it all works.
    Thanks!
