I got a .ipa app which I suspect is a jail broken app for iPad.

I'm contemplating to get a gadget which could read SD card to
copy this .ipa file over to the iPad.  

Q1:
Must I format this SD card as HFS format (as used in OS X) or
just the basic FAT16 / 32 or NTFS ?

Q2:
How do I determine if an ipa file/app is jail broken?  Must my
iPad 3 's IOS be jail broken as well to run it or as along as the
app is jail broken, it's good enough?

Q3:
After copying the ipa file over, how do I install it?

Q1: iPad will read FAT 16/32 best to leave to FAT 32

Q2: I'm not sure how to tell if the app is jailbroken or not; but when you install it - if it IS jailbroken, the app will give an error about the app being not supported on NONE jailbroken device, when you launch it.

Q3: You can install app using iFunBox

I'll need some help here with iFunBox as still don't quite get how it helps
me run the .ipa app.  So do I

a) install iFunBox on my iPad
b) then copy the .ipa file to a USB thumb drive that's formatted as FAT16
c) then use iFunBox to install the .ipa  app?
& I'll be able to run the .ipa app using iFunBox?

iFunBox is installed on the computer, you then plug your iPad, select install app, navigate to where use saved your .ipa file.

iFunBox will then try to install your app.
