    Before you jailbreak, make sure you back up your iPad using iTunes because the restore will wipe clean the iPad

    After the jailbreak, do a restore from iTunes and all your data will restored

    Can i ask a stupid question?

    Is there any specific advantage to jailbreaking my iPad?

    I've done my phone and was good to try some different themes and that but i quickly got bored of how buggy it seemed to be and restored it.

    I've got a 16gb Wifi iPad 1 and was hoping for some advice.

    Cheers

    I jailbreaked my iPad just to add few tweaks from Cydia such as

    Shrink to shrink my icons by 80%
    5-row keyboard iOS4
    Bosspaper to remove labels from icons
    Safari download manager
    ScrollingBoard
    Ifile

    in Step 2: it asks you to restore by clicking on restore while holding the (mac) option button, what do windows users do?

    Updated from 4.3 to 4.3.1 last night and the bloody backup didn't work and as such, it hasn't restored any of the apps that I had on my iPad :mad:

    Not amused. Especially as I'm waiting to have broadband installed at our new house and I can only get apps from my parents house when I connect to their WiFi.

    I didn't get that error with my iPad 1 last night, tho I had to reset it into DFU mode manually twice as the program hung and wouldn't proceed. Once I restarted the iPad and put it into DFU again, it carried on.

    didnt realise that it had gone from 4.3 to 4.3.1 already

    edit, anyway itunes is confirming I have 4.3.1, hopefully a restore will sort it out

    thanks

    Just jailbroken my ipad 1

    I used to have my iPhone3G JB'ed, but never my iP4

    Now just done my ipad i'm out the loop as to what are good apps to get.

    I'll take a look at what you are using but anyone recommend useful/good ipad JB apps?

    What is the app that makes iPhone apps run full screen without stretching them?

    Hi guys, can anyone advise how I can upgrade my ipad 1 from a jailbroken 4.2 (I used Greenp0ison) to 4.3.1 untethered jailbreak?

    Do I just let itunes update my ipad to 4.3.1 then run the jailbreak?

    also, what do I need to do about my JB apps?

    Many thanks

    Happy with my JB'd 16GB mk1 on 4.2.1 as it is. Are there any benefits with moving to 4.3.1?

    It's always better to have upto date Firmware because majority of the apps both Apple and Cydia will be updated for the newer version of firmware.

    Also when you upgrade, you won't be thinking about upgrading in the future unless apple releases another version
