    jailbreak confusion

    I own a IPAD first generation. I'm currently running IOS 3.2 jailbroken. I was wondering, can I use a payload update or I.m obligated to use a custom firmware ? Should I update my ipad with Itunes and after this part, running any jailbreak version. Is the latest update 4.3.3 ?

    What is the simplest way for me to update my ipad with a jailbreak firmware ?

    thanks
    Jonathan

    First, update to 4.3.3. Then follow the redsnow jailbreak guide in my signature.

    And as always, if you have any questions, many jailbreaking gurus live in this section just waiting to help!

    This thread is when SweetPoison jailbroke and the first couple of pages as well as the rest explains a lot of beginner jailbreak stuff;

    Thanks Graywolf. Will it mean a complete wipeout of my system (files, setting and everything) ?

    Since you are talking about upgrading an already jailbroken iPad you might like to follow this guide I wrote:

    When you update with iTunes, it Keeps all your files.

    But sometimes when you do that ~ if I am not mistaken ~ you give incorrect advice. Perhaps you should start reading posts more than once.

    Which is why I don't give much advice.

    First thanks. Ok, I have to admit even after reading some of the sticky posts I'm still a little lost. I bought the apps from Cydia that allow the backing up of my packages. I can't used Dropbox because of my old firmware. I added a lot of great pdf books in Goodreaders will I lost them after my firmware update from Itunes ?

    There is a lot of jailbreak possibilities ranging from payload to custom but is it better to start off from scratch in terms of bugs or comptability issues ? Which is one of hacked firmware group is the most reliable or less buggy ?

    Thanks!
    Jonathan
