Speaking of updates--I lost Blogshelf. I've been in contact with the developer and he removed it from the app store temporarily because it didn't meet Icloud but did IOS 5. it was one of the 22 apps that wouldn't sync. He suggested I retry syncing it because he upgraded and his Blogshelf restored. Seems everything doesn't work the same for everyone. I'll try reinstalling when he puts it back but he expected a month wait.
I'm afraid I did lose patience after going round in circles. Error -54. I restored iPad 1 to factory settings in the end and at least I e got my paddy back without data but hey ho. I hope you find out how to fix this. Have you read richsadams thread on how to achieve success with this update?

Hi, I've had the same prob for 3 days so I went to apples website and looked under support, they are advising you before downloading the new update to reformat your iPad after running a back up, then when the software reinstalls it automatically installs 5 it worked for me
Apple's instructions, as part of the upgrade process iTunes automatically creates a backup, erases and restores the iDevice. I had not seen where Apple was recommending folk's do anything differently.
Maybe someone posted the link in this thread since I found at least one link to an Apple recommendation. I haven't looked through all the thread since its long but there certainly are a lot of different ways people were able to complete the upgrade process so maybe one of those may help,

I've been having issues too - my iPhone4 upgrade to iOS5 on my work laptop, running Windows 7 was a breeze.... getting my iPad 2 to upgrade on my home PC (Windows XP) is another story - the backup just never happens and I get the same message as above, except it's error coded -1303, and the "only" way to proceed is to wipe the iPad which is stupid really... has anyone here actually "beaten" this error without wiping their iPads?
