Hey, I hope I can learn a lot on here. I am sure there is an abundance of knowledge!
I have been reading some discussions, but haven't quite found what I'm looking for. Wondering if someone could shed some light on updating an iPad with 3.2.2 operating system?
I have been all over the Internet this morning and can't get it to work.
Thanks soo much!

Hi! Yes I want to update to 5.1, but I can't seem to get it to work. My laptop recently died so I just have this iPad.
I tried to use iTunes to update but it won't cooperate either. Who / where should in look for advice?
Sorry, also what is jail breaking? Like downloading illegally or not with apple?
You will need to connect to a computer that has the very latest version of iTunes on it. There is no other way that I am aware of.

Once you connect the process is straight forward. It will require you to perform a backup then it will perform the install.
Another consideration but not requirement is to verify all installed apps are at current levels as provided by the associated developer and provided through the Apple Apps store.
Time required to perform the upgrade varies depending on number of apps installed and amount of user data saved/restored as part of the process.
Background apps are hiding for good reason. Seek them out, close them. The world will be a better place.
Hi and welcome to the Forum!
Disabling your virus protection on your pc for the duration of the update is also a good idea.
