hi gang... based on all my reading i believe the time is right for me to upgrade from 4.3.3 which is jailbroken, to un jailbroken 5.0.1. i realize i will lose my jailbreak, and there is no guarantee that it will ever be released, but for me i'm willing to accept that risk.
i haven't updated the ipad firmware in quite awhile, and i'm a bit uncertain how to. my main issue is that i've got about 30gigs of comics in my favorite program (comic zeal) and i want to make sure this is all restored after 5.0.1 is loaded.
i think the steps are:
-make backup of current ipad through itunes
-bought and used pkgbackup to save all jb settings (in hopes jb is released)
-download proper version of official firmware 5.0.1 ipad 2, wifi
-put ipad into dfu mode
-go to itunes, use shift click to restore, and choose manually download firmware
-this will update the ipad
-here's where i'm not sure- after all this, will my non-jb programs be restored (including comic zeal above)? or will i then need to choose restore from backup?
OR should i just choose update from itunes, which i presume will backup the ipad, restore to 5.0.1, and load backup?
thanks any advice is appreciated
