    I just tried to upgrade the iOS on my iPad 2 from iOS5 to iOS6. When I check for software update it it shows iOS6 but the Download and install link is grayed out. it says that 2.2GB of available storage is necessary but when I look at usage it says that I have 14.3 GB available.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks,

    Are you on wifi? I Believe if you only have 3G where you are, it will grey out the download option due to the size of the download required.

    Yes I'm on WiFi. I upgraded my iPhone 4s without a problem, any other ideas?

    Thanks for trying.

    Worked for me

    Consider yourself very lucky. I'm completely fed up. Not being able to back out of a bad upgrade is the final straw. Will be looking for an android much sooner than I had intended.

    Assuming your iPad is synced with a PC/Mac, I would try this route, using iTunes for the upgrade. Your best bet is to run through a full sync cycle to ensure your iPad is fully backed up then, follow the onscreen instructions to upgrade your version of iOS.

    At the current time there is no jailbreak for an iPad 2 running iOS 6. Keep watching the hacking section of the forums. As soon as a jailbreak becomes available it will be announced there, along with instructions on implementing it.
