If you're having the same problem (typically it's people with unlimited data, like we mentioned yesterday), try using his steps below to get it back. He said he did it with 2 friends that lost data as well and it seems to work -- at least as a temp fix.

Jailbroken iPad gets Apple Magic Mouse support

Redmond Pie decided to try out BTstack Mouse on a Jailbroken iPad and the results were promising:

Not only did it worked with Apple Magic Mouse, but also with almost all the other Bluetooth enabled mice I had. For those of you who don’t know, BTstack Mouse is a free utility which was first released earlier this year for jailbroken iPhones and iPod touch.

First a Nintendo Wiimote, then an external HDD, now BT mouse. Is there anything Jailbreak can't do?

Check out Ally's Spirit Jailbreak guide, and TiPb's Jailbreak forum for more, and the link below for step-by-step BTstack for iPad instructions.

Super Nintendo running on a jailbroken iPad via snes4iPhone!

snes4iPhone, the Super Nintendo emulator for Jailbreak, was captured running on an iPad -- using a Wii remote to control your character.  Most people familiar to jailbreaking and running snes4iPhone already know how awesome it is to be able to carry your old favorites around on your iPhone.  Who doesn't love Mario and old school Nintendo games? Better yet, who wouldn't want it on their iPad?! Being able to do it on your iPad is even more awesome!  Of course, this is only for jailbroken users.

So if you're interested in jailbreaking, jump over to our jailbreak forums or check out our new Spirit tutorial to get your jailbreak up and running.  Spirit currently works with any iPhone or iPod touch running 3.1.3 and any iPad running 3.2.  Even if you don't have an iPad, sns4iPhone [$5.99 - Cydia link] is still a great buy for the iPhone as well.

And the normal disclaimer, if the thought of the jailbreak process frightens you, you may want to pass on this one.  Video after the break!

Spirit untethered Jailbreak for iPad 3.2, iPod touch, iPhone 3.12, 3.13 now live

Spirit, an untethered jailbreak for iPad 3.2, and iPod touch and iPhone under 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 is now live. If you want it, go grab it via the link below.

A word of warning for iPad users:

On iPad, all this is still sort of beta. Some packages in Cydia, not designed for iPad, might screw up your system and require you to restore. Be careful. (And no, Cydia's appearance is not final.)

Also, not an unlock solution. This is a jailbreak.

As always, if you don't know what any of these means, stay away.
