I figured as much. I don't care about it anyway.... not having flash is a blessing for me... though I would like a choice as I know others like it....

I guess I don't really need flash either, but I also would prefer to chose what I think is appropriate and what not.
I got no idea though what jailbreaking can cause to the device except loosing your warranty.

Apart from losing warranty support, the other disadvantages of jailbreaking are:

- You can't take iPad operating system updates until the new version been broken
- If you have any kind of issue, it's much harder to find support (obviously you can't get anything from Apple or their discussion forums)

Your decisions whether how these factors weigh

I totally agree. But well, I kind of love hacking my devices. I just don't know yet whether jailbreaking would bring advantages or not. In case of the Sony readers, PRS+ was a big advantage for me. So I guesss I'll have to do some research

If you have a warranty issue after jailbreaking you can always restore the iPad to factory default settings.
