I purchased the iPad2 16Gb WiFi only recently, my first Apple product. Have experience with Android before this. I am ready to jailbreak the iPad, hope there is no issue to do this in the WiFi only model. It has iOS 5.1.1 and I have not upgraded to 6.
I have already registered with an Apple Id, setup iTunes on my laptop and backed up my iPad, so I think I am ready to go. But I have a few queries :
1) I have downloaded Absinthe 2.0.4. Is it just as simple as connecting the iPad, opening Absinthe and then clicking "Jailbreak"? Or is there anything more I need to do?
2) After Jailbreaking, I understand that iTunes will work as it is and backup the "official" apps. So I can regularly backup my iPad with iTunes. In case if I restore from iTunes, will I lose the Cydia apps? Will I have to Jalbreak again?
3) How to backup Cydia apps?
4) Is there any software which will backup both Apps Store and Cydia apps?
