Jailbreaking the new iPad - will you and why?
Are you guys planning on jailbreaking your new iPad when a tool is available?
I've always jailbroken my iPhones. I've had all 3 iterations of the iPad and never really found a reason to jailbreak it.
I seem to "need" additional functionality on my iPhone but never on my iPad. Maybe because I mostly use it for pictures, editing, reading, games, etc... It seems where I need the notification enhancements is on my iPhone.
I'm open to being swayed though. If you insist on jailbreaking your iPad, why?

I WILL jailbreak my "new iPad" shortly after an Untethered JB is available for the following apps...
FullForce (app by app basis)
Parallax (or other scrolling, wide wallpaper add-on)
Safari Upload Enabler

I want to jailbreak, simply to have the ability to do what I want to with it. I hate being stuck behind the wall.

I know the discussion is for the iPad, but one reason I will continue to jailbreak is if my out of warranty iPhone breaks, like it just did this past week. Power button died, no apple store for miles and miles. It was already jail broke, so I just ordered the replacement ribbon cable and sensors ($5 on Amazon) and replaced the part. In the meantime I had triple-click set to lock the device.
However, I just discovered that after I replaced the part (and my power button works perfectly now, it pushes down and clicks again), that I must have torn the headphone jack ribbon. The ribbon that leads to the headphone jack also goes to the vibrator motor, which must have shook the remaining thread enough to rip that out as well. The volume buttons still work, but the mute switch does not (again, all on same ribbon, just with different leads). Another $5 for the whole jack/motor leads/internal buttons and internal switch leads (with free shipping, which is awesome because it would have been $20 and shipping via ifixit). This part appears easier to replace than the power switch assembly.
Until that part comes in I can just use my old iPod 5th gen for listening to music at night, and an activator action for toggling silent.
Oh the fun times of iPhone repair.

I jailbreak just in case there is something I want that isn't offered. I use TV out for my iPad (first generation) to stream Slingbox from the US to my TV. I also use my computer to do the same thing, but I Love having options .
