Thanks for the fast reply Marilyn, Very Very helpful to me, after poking around the board some im going to try the tethered JB, My ipad is allways home so Booting from a CPU wont bother me any :)
The Cydia Apps tha I had purchased before I undid my jailbreak, Will they still be in Cydia as paid for by me?
Oh, absolutely! From my experience, it's just like the App Store - if you paid for an app, it's yours.
Once you get back to Cydia on your freshly re-jailbroken iPad, do a search for the tweaks you had before. Once it's fully loaded in the viewing, you will see a nice, green checkmark next to the words "Package Officially Purchased." Always a nice thing to see (especially if, in my case, you forgot you even bought the tweak! :D). Hope that reassures...
Good luck on the tethered jail break on 5.0.1. As I said, that's the one I'm running with zero problems. If you follow the excellent sticky written by our resident jail break expert, f4780y, to jailbreak an iPad1 using redsn0w, I don't think you'll have any troubles. If you do, however, do let us know.
P.S. To make it easier, the sticky I reference is here (and remember, always, to reboot by pointing redsn0w at iOS 5.0 first - even though you're jail breaking/running iOS 5.0.1): http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreaki...g-redsn0w.html
