So the iPad has been jailbroken, but that's all we've got. No word on when it will be available for public release. It's certainly encouraging, but I think we'll all be happier when we get a release date.

Bump... Still no idea on when the new iPad will have an untethered jailbreak?
Heck, I'd be happy with a tethered one. I never had a problem with tethered jailbreak on my iPad 1 since it hardly ever was rebooted.

Now if it was my phone that would be a different story.

So right now I'll take ANY jailbreak solution for me iPad 3. :)

All I want is to be able to change the output of my TV connection to widescreen as I'm tired of not using all of my screen real estate. I can't believe that Apple hasn't made a wide screen option stock so that we don't have to seek jailbreak!

That bugs the heck out of me.

But I assume you mean when using a cable connection? I only use Airplay Mirroring.

Either way. I've tried both ways and they are 4X3 for me so whenever I hit the zoom button on the TV remote to try and stretch out the sides closer to the edges of the TV, I lose some of the iPad's display off the top and the bottom of the TV.

Does the jailbreak solution to force it full screen work for AirPlay mirroring?

Thanks.

I don't know since I last used TVOut 2 before Apple TV, but I remember being able to set the width and height of the desired display so that it would go as close as I wanted to the edges of my TV and still look great. It basically forced the iPad to produce a wide screen output! But I only used a cable for this app so who knows.

What I don't get is why in the world doesn't Apple simple include a wide screen option. It's really not that hard and 90-95% of TVs today are wide screen. I have an Asus Transformer Prime and when I plug it into my TV it automatically fills every inch of the TV screen and looks great.

Yes it seems very un-apple-like to have it display like that. I can see portrait mode not filling the screen but not landscape.

Alas, I suspect that TVOut will do nothing for AirPlay. Maybe there is, or will be, another solution for that.
