I am interested in jail breaking my ipad2 and am very new to the concept. I see lots of pay for jailbreaks and I hear of free jail breaks. What is the difference as I thought it was a singular concept. Can anyone lend some wisdom?

As I posted earlier...

What's the iOS version? Check by going into Settings> General> About> Version. Every iOS version cannot be jailbroken by the same jailbreaking tool, so you need to see what the version is. The search on YouTube for "iPad (X) iOS (Y) jailbreak", where X is the iPad model, and Y is the iOS version. But it's all DIY and none of us takes any responsibility if your iPad is bricked! (and you won't get any support from Apple either, unless you restore it via iTunes, but if you're deprived of doing so, then you can do nothing to fix it, so proceed with caution)

You are out of luck. You will not be able to jailbreak the iPad 2 on the new iOS 5.1. And NEVER pay for a jailbreak. Stick to idownloadblog.com for great jailbreak how-tos and guides.

You can only jailbreak for iOS 5.0.
