First, sorry about asking a question that must doubtless have been asked hundreds of times. I had my brother jb my ipad 2 and he is no longer with me to do it and I have no idea how to. As the title says, I am on JB iOS5.0 (5.1.1) and want to upgrade to JB iOS6 because more and more apps require iOS6 or even iOS7 (but no iOS7 JB yet, right?) I seem to remember a while back on Cydia how you had a window of opportunity for upgrading and whatever, which I didn't understand and ignored. I just want to know if this is possible, and whether I can do it in a way I can go back to iOS 5 if I don't like iOS6 (will iOS6 run as smoothly as iOS5 on iPad 2?) I know this must have been covered somewhere, and I do see a whole board with tutorials on this forum. I just don't know which one I am supposed to look at, so if you would be kind and patient with me and point me to the tutorial that I should follow, I would really appreciate it. Thanks. Edit: while I am at it, I would also like to JB my mom's ipad mini that's on ios6. I seem to remember some time ago how ipad mini has not been properly JB'd? Can someone explain this to me too? Edit 2: I see that my main question is answered just below. Sorry, and what a drag.
