Need Video Mirroring But Can't Afford iPad 2? - IGM Video Demos How

One of the key reasons to upgrade to iPad 2 for many is Video Mirroring, especially those involved in Training/Education (or Gamers!). But what if you simply cannot afford to upgrade or justify spending out on the iPad 2 because you spent all your hard earned cash on the original iPad?

If you are willing to Jailbreak your original iPad and buy a $3 app that has been around for a while in the Cydia store, then you can get something close to what those lucky iPad 2 owners have got.

Although not 1080p, you can see from the video demo by Insanely Great Mac that the Display Out app provides a workable solution, and it might just ease the pain of not being able to upgrade for some.

Anyone tried this for themselves? Please let us know how you got on in the comments.

DisplayOut work great for me. If it doesn't work immediately, restart your iPad. Also works on iPhone 4. Tested with the new HDMI output cable. If you are going to an HDMI-enabled TV, audio works too. If you are using an HDMI to DVI adapter cable, audio continues to come out the headphone jack (and can easily be routed to your stereo via a stereo minijack to stereo RCA cable). Tested on iOS 3.21 on iPad (yes, I really should update one of these days) and iOS 4.1 on iPhone 4.

PS. I had terrible problems with a free alternative called TVOUT2. It seriously messed up my iPad and was tricky to remove. Spend the $3 for a trouble-free experience!
