Jailbreak Your iPad, and Suddenly VOiP Apps Make Sense

Jailbreak At Your Own Risk. We Are NOT Recommending It. We just did it ourselves and are telling you about it.

A jailbreak that works on the current iPhone and iPad was released this morning. Larry gave Judie & me the heads-up that he was jailbreaking his iPhone; it took four seconds. I jumped in and jailbroke my iPad 3G. Judie is about to do her iPad, too. (The things we do for you on this site … 😉 )

We quickly got to work employing Categories to reduce the number of Springboard pages. Larry did some other mods, but I was most interested in one thing… running apps in the background. Considering the fact that the iPad was released with OS iPhone, and it has the ability to run apps in the background, I thought it was a pretty good bet this would work quite well. Specifically, I wanted to know how well the Line2 VOiP app would work if I left it running and then started using my iPad for other activities.

So how did it work… you be the judge…

Again – Jailbreak At Your Own Risk. We Are NOT Recommending or Endorsing It.
