    Default Benefit of jail lbreaking ipad?

    I have a jail broken ipad 3, wifi version.

    Since free "app store" has been taken down (forgot the name of it), is there any reason to keep it jail broken?

    I have a jailbroken ipad, and I use the following tweaks:

    Barrel
    Emblem + Mountain Center (much better notifications)
    Zeppelin

    Installous? Yes, there is still a great advantage to having a jailbroken ipad despite installous being down. Basically, jailbreaking your ios device allows you to download from sources outside of the apple store. You can also tweak your device in ways that were normally locked down. Essentially, it is like logging into your device as an Administrator, instead of a User with VERY restricted privileges.

    You can get another blackmarket appstore, like appcake. The search sucks, you can't really find all the apps you're looking for, and the websites it brings you to are a p.i.t.a. (30 second wait times, pop ups, etc.) The way I do it, is I find the install files (IPA) for whatever app I'm looking for online (I usually use piratebay). I either download them on my computer, and send them to my ios device (iphone, ipad, etc.), or download them directly from my device using itransmission (yes, you can download torrents directly onto your ios device, only once jailbroken though). I use iFile to transfer files, and to look into the file system so I can access my downloads folder. Then I just use appcake to install the IPA.

    Keep in mind, if your device is not jailbroken you are restricted to only using apps that are allowed in the appstore. iTransmission and iFile are two examples of these apps. You can find, download, and install them in your cydia. If your device was not jailbroken, you couldn't download torrents directly to your phone, and you wouldn't be allowed to look into the file system.

    It's pretty sweet to be able to download HD movies and tv shows on the fly, via torrent, right to your device, and then watch them using a ported version of VLC.

    Thanks for chiming in. I updated the OS and decided not to have jail breaking anymore. I don't torrent and couldn't bother to do the technical tweaks. I bought it jail broken and thought the free apps were cool for a while until I realize they were mostly useless. The apps I use the most are all free anyways.

    If you wanted to get more apps for free then you can jailbreak your iphone or ipad and install installous. You'll get to download a lot of apps without using your credit card. However, if you value the warranty, then don't jailbreak your unit.
