There are many reasons why you would want to jailbreak an ipad; but, the main reason is to install apps and programs which Apple does not allow you to install when the ipad is locked by the company. So, if you want to learn how to jailbreak an ipad, you will find that it is a fairly simple process to do, and will require only a few items, and a few minutes of time for you to complete the process. Following the steps below is the easiest way to unlock the ipad, for those who are looking to find the easiest approach on how to jailbreak an ipad.
For starters you are going to need the iPad usb cable and Spirit jailbreak software to get the process underway. The first thing you should do is back up your ipad through itunes. This ensures that all critical data you have on the ipad is going to be preserved, and in the event you ever want to reset the ipad to factory condition, you are going to have all of the files in one place, and they will be safe on your itunes account on your computer.
The next thing you are going to do when jailbreaking your ipad is to install the software for the Spirit jailbreak system. There are various links you can use to download (and there are different types of software you can choose to purchase, if you do want to jailbreak your ipad). So, finding the cheapest option, or the best easy to use links will allow you to download the software in a couple of minutes to move on to the next steps in the process. Once you have downloaded the software, you are going to quit out of and close down the itunes software on your computer.
Upon closing itunes, you will start up the downloaded software, allow it to run on your computer, and you will connect the ipad to your computer (it might still be connected from the time when you backed everything up on to itunes, in which case you do not have to worry about disconnecting and then reconnecting the usb cable to your computer).
The final step is to click on the jailbreak icon when the software is booted up (it is only going to allow you to click on the jailbreak link if your ipad is connected, so this has to be done before moving forward in the process). Once you click the link the process to jailbreak the ipad will begin. Once it is completed, it will require you to restart your ipad (similarly to when you download new updates on your pc, and you have to restart it in order for everything new to be up to date), and then it will be jailbroken allowing you to add different programs and apps as you please.
It is fairly simple to do, and it will only take a few minutes in total after downloading the software to jailbreak your ipad.
