Did the jail break now I have cydia.... What am I supposed to do next? I am confused I thought this would unlock the next iOS because this iPad is pretty much useless without it.... Someone help me please (: I just want to be able to download apps and most that I try ask for iOS 6 or better is there anyway around this and what exactly is the jailbreak for if not the iOS? I am not even sure what I am supposed to do with cydia....

Is there anyway around the app download restriction while still running the iOS 5.1.1

This is not possible.

Cydia is a store for tweaks (modifications of iOS to make the experience better).

No there is no way around it @Lupino

No there is not as already told .... Only way is to buy a newer device....with newer iOS version.

Cydia is about customisation....theming.....making tasks more simple or allowing tasks that Apple doesnt ........ Not about forcing the install of newer apps onto older iOS versions that can't cope or run them.t
