After tasting 20 beers, the average ranking was:

  1. Almanac- Farm To Barrel (Dark Pumpkin Sour)
  2. Cambridge Brewing Co- The Great Pumpkin Ale
  3. Shipyard- Pumpkinhead
  4. Southern Tier- Pumking
  5. Elysian- Punkuccino

the tasting group seemed to prefer sours, and didn’t like overly sweet beer, thus the discrepancy between average rankings and my rankings…

  1. Elysian- Punkuccino
  2. Southern Tier- Warlock
  3. Avery- Rumpkin
  4. Avery- Pump[ky]n
  5. Almanac- Farm To Barrel (Dark Pumpkin Sour)

Initially I had a lot of issues getting this jailbreak to work, but after I found some more info, it now works.

At first I was getting the issue:
Unable to find gBdevList
Unable to find fs_mount
Unable to find fs_unmount
Unable to find fs_load_file

but after following these directions, it works:

  1. Make sure you’re using Greenpois0n RC5_2 (RC5.2 works too)
  2. Make sure device is connected to your Mac
  3. Open Terminal
  4. Type “cd Desktop” without quotes and hit enter
  5. Type “open” without quotes and hit enter. A second Terminal window will open and Greenpois0n will start
  6. Follow the instructions in Greenpois0n to enter DFU mode and it will jailbreak

if you need a place to download greenpois0n you can go here:

Here are a few tips on what to do once your ipad/iphone/itouch is jailbroken

  1. download cydia
  2. download openssh
  3. download preference loader
  4. download activator
  5. goto manage > settings > add repository >
  6. download

i dont recommend downloading winterboard just yet, as it is not ready for ipad yet.

invalid IPA error
if your getting this error, it means that most likely you either have to update appSync or you havent allowed the files to fully download. is an iOS app and thus does not have multithreading capabilities like the appStore. this means that you have to keep open when downloading and you cant close it like you do the appStore.
