    Why Jailbreak?
    Pretty much everything applies except for unlocking.

    the reason to jailbreaking a ipad is to FREE it. the amount of possibilities are endless. Its the reason I bought an ipad. This website is the reason i bought an ipad. With Cydia you can download a lot of stuff, check out the FAQ section.

    A lot of people think jailbreaking is synonymous with illegal uses like cracked apps and stuff and this is so far from the truth. Jailbreaking like a previous poster mentioned is freeing the device to do more things and have more control.

    For instance I prefer to have file control and be able to manage files; pdf's, images, or whatever I download from the net, using an app from Cydia (a jailbroken app store) called iFile I can copy/paste stuff or download/upload from my PC. App like SBSetting allow for settings control without exiting an existing app (nothing worse than exiting an app just to change brightness). There are many uses and simply allows for more user abilites.
