iTune won't recognize my JBroken iPad2
I've successfully JBroken my iPad2 about 10 days ago. The freedom is great, as I was dying for iFile and other great apps only available to JB.
Last night, I've plugged my iPad to the PC for the first time since JBreaking only to discover that iTune does not recognize my iPad anymore: When launching iTune I get a pop-up window stating that iTune cannot read the content of my iPad anymore... blah blah blah and that I need to go to the pref tab and Restore my iPad to its original state. :(
Is this normal behavior after a JB?
I'm not dying to use iTune, but I'm annoyed that iTune cannot "see" my iPad anymore.
- Is there anything I can do to fix that without a restore of the iPad?
- more importantly, if I do a Restoration of the iPad through iTune, will this automatically update my iOS to 4.3.4 (which I want to avoid, even though I have saved my SHSH (or believe i have))?
- is it possible to backup my Cydia apps/tweaks before restoring through iTune?
Thank you in advance for your help...
