    Whilst I fully accept 5.1.1 does make the iPad1 run slower than a 4.x firmware, it should not be an order of magnitude slower, which seems to be what the OP is suggesting.

    prasnnabhansali, I would suggest trying a restore to a fresh 5.1.1 first using iTunes. Something could easily have been corrupted in the last update process you did. Those kind of complaints are really not that uncommon and is often resolved with a restore.

    Jailbreaking the device is NOT the way to go for this user. There is noting you would install once jailbroken which would significantly improve the performance on an iPad1 running 5.1.1.
    Also for reference, jailbreaking is not related in any way to downgrading the iPad. To downgrade the iPad1 you must have saved SHSH Blobs for your device and the version of IOS you want to install. You must have saved these blobs away safely when Apple was still providing that version as the "current" / "latest" version of IOS. There is no way to get round the system, even once jailbroken. Since the OP will not have been saving their SHSH Blobs (why would they?) they will not be able to restore an old version of IOS under any circumstances. It's 5.1.1 or nothing.

    Hope that helps.
