    Put two fingers on the keyboard then split them or touch and hold the keyboard icon (bottom right) when the keyboard pops up.

    Thanks G,

    I went in the apple site read I thought everything including disclaimers and copywrite .

    Is there a list or a manual of these newer ios5 commands anywhere? I've spent ages looking for iMessages, only to eventually discover it was under the same old 'message' icon (dogh!).

    Not sure if they are listed in the iPad User Guide For iOS 5 but it's available for free in the iBook Store.

    Just tried it, reminds me if the 'melted' M$ ergonomic keyboards, not sure having now found it what value it is to me, halves the size if the keys - and I wear size XXXL gloves so have fingers like bannana's lol!

    Oh well!

    Just wanted to let you know that as a neophyte iPad 2 user, I successfully installed the iOs 5 upgrade on my 2nd try. Turning off my antivirus software and rebooting the cable modem and router did the trick, as the update only took 9 minutes to download. Thanks for your suggestions, Rich!

    My download isn't working, I have downed everything like you suggest but the ipad backup is taking a long, long time so I have rebooted several times to the same thing. Is this high traffic in the download or me in particular?

    The iOS 5 download and entire upgrade process can take a long, long time for some...some have reported several hours. I would let it do its thing. Unless it shows an error it's probably still working. There is no doubt that there's high traffic on Apple's servers since it's still the weekend in the U.S. Well over a million folks just bought the iPhone 4s as well so they're busy downloading apps, backing up, restoring and such too.

    The amount of data, Apps, etc. as well as the speed of your broadband connection can have a great deal to do with it as well.

    Have some patience and you should be rewarded.

    Welcome again and enjoy!

    Another helpful tip:

    If your iPad 2 is Jailbroken, and when trying to update it to iOS 5 in iTunes, and you get error message "The iPad (name of iPad) could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build.", and you even tried to restore or put the iPad 2 in DFU before trying to update/restore isn't working.

    You need to:

    Open Terminal> Copy and Paste this: sudo nano /private/etc/hosts >Press Enter>Enter your admin Password (If you don't have one, you MUST create one in order to complete this) Press enter..Also, Even if you're typing it in, it's going to look like you aren't doing anything.>Use the down arrow on your keyboard until you reach the last line (should look something like this: 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com)> then manually type in # then press the space bar once> then control X to exit/save.> Close iTunes then reopen it and connect your iPad and hit restore. (Make sure you backup your data before you try this).

    If it gives you the same error, Go back into Terminal, and check to see if the # with the space after was saved correctly!

    iOS 5 Upgrade Troubleshooting Only

    Just a reminder that this thread is for iOS 5 upgrade troubleshooting, not for posting problems after upgrading. We've had to move several posts to other areas.

    If you are having a problem after upgrading, please search the forum for answers first. If you don't find an answer, post your question in the appropriate area (Help, iCloud, Apps, etc.). TIA!
