    hello all,
    I've had this ipad for 3 weeks now and I love it. Now I want to jailbreak it and seems pretty easy to do as far as the one button jailbreak goes. My question is, what do I need to do right after I jailbreak. In Cydia, what is the very first thing i need to do? please provide information on that. I've searched but no answers. And after I had all my fun being jailbroken all I need to do is hit the restore button to set it back to factory settings? Thanks in advance.

    There's no one thing you have to do straight away. It's up to you. However considering you are using an ipad i would suggest to check out a compatibility list for cydia apps, because some do not work, and some can cause you problems. And yes restoring will completely erase all trace of the jailbreak, and will also fix any issues you may have.

    Do I need to install SBSettings and respring before anything else?

    You don't have to, it's optional. Some people consider SBSettings as a necessity, but it's not actually needed. Though it is very useful.

    I think you misunderstand jailbreaking. None of the apps from cydia are actually needed to have a jailbroken device, you just install them as you want, to your liking. A respring is only needed after some files have been changed, and cydia will tell you if you need a respring after you install something.

    nope, we dont like pirated games and apps

    but what you SHOULD do is save the shsh blobs of your device, open cydia and tap on "make my life easier"
