    iOS 6 seems fine. Is there a user guide including it for iPad2?

    Become an iOS developer, download the appropriate package (google for "ios 5 direct download links") and use XCode's Organizer to downgrade to iOS 5.
    (That's the only way I know ...)

    That's a shame, I want Google maps back but, worse, my Home button doesn't always react. Sometimes I have to press it 3 or 4 times. It always worked every time before. Lets hope w get an update to the update soon!!!!

    There is a workaround for the dodgy home button.

    Go to Settings/General/Accessibility/Assistive Touch. Turn it on and you will get a software home button on your screen. You can move it around if it gets in the way.

    Thanks, it might help although it has a mind of its own and won't go just where I want it.

    I've sorted Google Maps by going into it inSafari then adding to Home Screen. I've done the same with uTube.
