Somebody tell why.....
if you jailbreak your ipad2, there's a hack in cydia to allow you to download email attachments from within email app. there's also another hack in there to allow you to add photos or files to the email, WITHIN, the native email app. naturally the email app won't let you do this. Normally you would have to go into photos app, then choose a pic, then select to email it. the hack by passes this and allows you to do it within the email app. its extra work just to get those basic functions, which android does out the box easily, to work on Ipad.
Another great reason to jailbreak would be to get ifiles. that's a good enough reason there alone. it'll allow you root access to Ipad file system. basically a file explorer. this will do wonders for you as you can move files n everything with in it. ifiles is a must have. with it you won't need iTunes anymore to do anything. or you won't need to do "open in" once you click on a file or media file. you can just put the file in appropriate folder and it'll work.
if you need anymore hacks or info to bypass some of ipads limitations, let me know. I spent 2 years Modding my Ipad to break Apples grip on things. my Ipad is closer to an android device, after jailbreaking and several hacks, than it is to an Ipad out the box. Ipad out the box, stock, blows hard. a jailbroken Ipad is at least doable. still far behind android on functionality but at least way more than on stock setup.
forget all the "open in" and open this app or that app on Ipad to make things work. Jailbrake it and it'll make the Ipad more tolerable at least. you get a little bit more breathing room being jailbroken. it sux because you shouldn't have to jailbrake your stock Ipad to do basic things that android does out the box. But jailbrake is needed if you want more freedom(not even all that much) and functionality out of your Ipad.
