    Thinking of updating to ios5

    Did a search but couldn't find what I am looking for.

    I am considering trying ios5 but am unsure what I need to do. I am currently on 4.3.3, jailbroken, ipad 2, wifi only.

    My blobs are saved on Cydia and Tiny Umbrella. I just tried ISHSIT to save the blobs to the ipad and mail them to myself as extra back up but it gave a message saying it couldn't retrieve any blobs. Weird. So, I know I need to make sure I can get to them with TU before attempting a thing.

    What I need to know is, before I update the firmware, do I first need to restore the ipad or can I just plug into itunes and it will do everything for me?

    I think that's all I need to know.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can rest easy if Cydia has your blobs, but if you really want them downloaded to your PC, use our tutorial here - HOW TO - Save your SHSH Blobs with TinyUmbrella

    Since you are already JB, your best course of action is as follows (if you want to try IOS5)...

    1) Sync with iTunes - That will do a complete backup.
    2) Download IOS5 firmware for your device from here - Official Apple IOS Firmware Download Links for iPad
    3) Get your iPad into DFU mode - See here for help - DFU Mode for Dummies
    4) Open iTunes and shift-restore (windows) / option-restore (osx) and point to the firmware you just downloaded in step 2.
    5) When the restore is complete, choose to restore from a backup in iTunes... Let the restore complete and then iTunes will resync all your stuff on automatically after a reboot. Just make sure you don't unplug the iPad until iTunes has finished all its business.

    Hope that helps.

    Yes, have used TU before, just wanted that extra back up, call me paranoid. Lol.

    It's whether I need to restore the ipad prior to doing the update that I am a bit u sure of so if anybody can confirm what I need to do, it will be very much appreciated.

    I see that alot of people are having trouble with updating, am assuming that is because the servers are jam packed right now. Will wait it out a little while before I attempt it. Lol.

    Was my comprehensive list of instructions not good enough?

    Excellent, thank you. Although I love my current set-up, waiting for iOS 5 jailbreak is like a 5 year-old kids on Christmas morning about to piss his pants from excitement.
