    My ipad 1 is jailbroken. I havent used any jailbroken facilities whatever and am happy to be "unjailbroken". I want to update to the IOS5. Can I just simply plug it into itunes and let it update or does the update process detect that my ipad is jailbroken and will fail resulting in me having to do something before performing the update?

    thanks

    EDIT :

    I think I will try the suggestion here http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/48814-jail-broken-device-ios-5-a.html#post334945

    It failed
    So i got the ipad into dfu mode with it connected to PC and itunes running
    Itunes detected the dfu mode and displayed this message
    [​IMG]
    I then clicked Restore and followed the prompts and got an "unknown error has occured 3194"

    Is there anyway to unjailbreak my ipad or am i doing something wrong?

    Hmmm. It may be that iTunes doesn't have iOS 5 ready to go for you to install that version of firmware.

    So, try this: Get the iOS 5 firmware for your iPad from here: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/24939-official-apple-ios-firmware-download-links-ipad.html. Remember where you saved it (it'll be labeled as an IPSW file)...

    Then, put your iPad back into DFU mode (with it attached to your computer AND iTunes closed). When iTunes re-opens (cause you've been successful in putting the iPad into DFU mode), accept the prompt to restore your iPad.

    However, this time, hold the shift key and then click the Restore button. You'll be presented with a browse window for you to select that IPSW file you've saved. Select the file and then let iTunes finish.

    That ought to take care of it. Let us know how you get on.

    Thanks for that, f4780y. I shoulda remembered that part, dang it! :D

    Glad you got it sorted, though, kamenrider.
