    I am just about to Jailbreak my iPad(3rd Gen) and was wondering if I can still use iTunes to backup and restore my Apps and config afterwards (non Cydia of course)?

    If that is the case, can someone advise on how I would backup seperately, the Cydia side of things?

    Any advice would be grateful.

    All of you standard apps, data, media, etc. will continue to backup as normal using either iTunes or iCloud, whichever you choose. Jailbreaking should normally never prevent your iPad from working as it is supposed to do.

    For Cydia / Jailbreak apps, tweaks, and settings, my recommendation is always PkgBackup which is available from the Cydia store once you jailbreak. See here for details - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...p-safeguard-your-jailbreak-apps-settings.html

    Thanks for the quick response!

    This gives me more confidence jailbreaking.

    Looks like a whole new world out there waiting once I free the iPad.

    It sounds as if you have a tweak installed that is incompatible with your iPad (e.g. it's an iPhone tweak only) or your iOS. Or both.

    Think back to the most recent tweaks you installed. Then, go back to Cydia and uninstall those tweaks. Then, your iPad should have a proper appearance.

    If you can't think of which tweaks you installed, or if removing the last one(s) didn't help, may I ask that you list all the tweaks you have installed. Maybe we can help yu ID the culprit.

    Good luck.

    Glad to hear it.

    Zeppelin was recently updated to version 1.1 to add IOS 6 support, but this update seems to have fundamentally broken iPad functionality :(

    Wouldn't a test have revealed this problem before the developers released it?

    Yes, but many developers do not test for iPad (many are bedroom / hobby coders who only have access to a single device). The developer of Zeppelin is a 16 year old (not that there is anything wrong with that)

    They tend to be entirely focused on iPhone, a fact which adding "6.0" support to a tweak betrays. You can't have a jailbroken 6.0 iPad device yet...

    That's one of the main risks when jailbreaking, then, the fact that there is nobody that vets the apps and tweaks before they're made available.
