    I installed in early evening the day it came out. Did a backup/sync then downloaded the new iOS and installed. Everything went by the book, done in less than 20 minutes. I used a MacBook and a never-jail-broken 64GB iPad with about 12 GB free, for what it's worth. Oh, and updated my iPhone as well, no problems, probably took ten minutes for that.

    Welcome to the Forum. The main things are multitasking and making folders, for example I took my games and put them all in one folder To do this simplyy move an icon over another icon. The OS will create the folder and name it.

    Multitasking is kind of hard to describe, I watched a video to see how it worked. Basically you push the enter button twice and you will see your apps in a carousell on the bottom. As you scroll through them you will see a new "control center" (volume, pause, play etc.) and you will notice that the screen rotation is now in this area. The switch on the side of the iPad next to volume is now a mute switch.

    Check it out. If I didn't describe it to you correctly just google 4.2.1 ipad video for a demo.

    I had never jailbroken my iPad (and don't plan on it - I have yet to need to do something I can't with iOS) so I have a feeling that was part of the success.
    Mine isn't jailbroken and I had issues not with the installation but with the running of it.
    Too many computers to list....

    Mine was jailbroken on 3.2.2. I updated to 4.2.1 with noproblems. As usual, inalways hate backing upnfirst cuz it takes sooo long. I found out that when it updates, it doesnt really delete the jailbroken stuff or misc items in system. It only makes them not accessible. Time to jailbrake so i can get ifiles to make sure. Memory unaccounted for n i think its all those games n emulators that i had b4 i updated. I have 15gb free out of 32gb. I think i should have more left. I do have 107 apps though. ;-). N they all transfered after update without me physically redownloading. Now thats nice..lol
