    Sure. Your iTunes recognizes those two iPads as separate entitites, so whatever you do to one won't affect the other.

    The worst that will happen is - once you update iTunes and download that iOS version - iTunes will tell you there is a new software version for you iPad1. Just say no!

    At least, that's how it works for me as I run my mom's stock iPad2 through the same iTunes where I run my JB iPad1. So, it should be the same for you.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks allot

    I hope a jb for iOS 5 is out, what's the best route for now, go ios5 and save a blob or whatever that's called, my friend never did that then she with her jb ios4 and she had an issue and was forced to restore, no blobs while another friend was lucky and backed up a blob with tiny umbrella, did you use this method or recommend it until the next jb for ios5?

    Well, you can JB the iPad1 with a tethered jail break on iOS 5. There is no jailbreak on iOS 5 for the iPad2 yet - that one you'll just have to keep watch for.

    Apple's whole process of signing erosions has changed with iOS 5, so blobs after 4.3.5 aren't going to do you any good (can't use them like we did).
