Please review the hacking section rules and our main rules before posting!
1) sync with itunes to back up apps
2) hit restore using itunes to clean the ipad and have it update to 5.0.1
3) sync to reinstall apps (not cydia of course)
4) re jb with redsn0w and begin putting tweaks back on ipad
Am I missing any steps there? My biggest concern is bricking the ipad, if I can't re JB its not the end of the world and I can redownload my apps... I just want to make sure I am not going to brick it.
And also, you can only downgrade if you have your shsh blobs saved for the version you are trying to go to. And there are other complications with 3G models and their basebands being updated ( iPad 2 only I think).
Please don't post information unless it is accurate and helps the OP.
Such as your post earlier, "you will lose your soft wear", if he upgrades, it will act just like a normal iPad. He will not lose his software. He will just lose the jailbreak, and all he has to do is just re-jailbreak.
From everything I have read, 5.1 is not without it's issues. I think I'll stick to my 5.0 JB for now. Multitouch gestures were the main reason for my JB so I'm in no rush now
Good luck and happy JB'ing!

I updated last night and so far so good. I haven't JB it again because I didn't have time last night. It is amazing how used to the few tweaks I had I was. thanks for all the help!
