Everything ran smoothly, but when iPad rebooted there was no Loader button on the springboard and its not actually jailbroken. Any ideas??

I just did a jailbreak using this latest iteration of Greenpoison. I followed the instructions to a 'T' and everything worked out like this tutorial said it would. Only thing is, after my iPad restarted, there was no 'Loader' icon and Cydia was still installed on the iPad. However, my iPad is now untethered and everything seems to work fine. Is it all that critical to have the 'Loader' icon?

I don't know really...it didn't seem to even be removed at all. I didn't do a clean install...just added on to redsnow.

I've tria couple of times now, but cant make it work. When I tried to restore itunes want me to upgrade (I have 4.2.1), but i'm not shure to do that because I dont want to wait any longer for a new jailbreak. The only thing that i can think of is that the computer i try to use is not the one i have the ipad sync with. Is that a problem?? Please help me!!! Thanks // Jan

This tutorial works like a charm. But please note that you must hold the 'Home' button until almost "Complete" appear.

Just follow the instructions..... It worked in first time on my Ipod 3G....and now, after 2 attempts finally upgraded my Ipad form 3.22 to 4.2.1, installed Cydia..added the Repo Source, installed the necessary files, restarted iPad.
