wondering if anyone has come up with a solution for this.
I have the same issue when I plug in the Ipad 2, its says 'sync ipod' but its greyed out.
using the same cable i plug in my iphone 4 and it works just fine. it says 'cold4ire's iphone' and i can sync it.
The ipad 2 is on 5.0.1 jailbroken with absinthe 0.4.
