    Hi,

    I've got an iPad 2 on 5.0 which is jailbroken. It's currently synced with my old Windows laptop and I've got tiny umbrella with my blobs saved as well.

    How do I smoothly transfer everything to my MacBook? I haven't synced my iPad since I got the MacBook 4 months ago. I do have iCloud set up but I get those messages asking if I'm sure I want to sync with a new library and I'm paranoid about losing my jailbreak! Thanks for the help!

    I'm not sure being jailbroken has any bearing on this at all. A jailbroken device behaves exactly the same as a non-jailbroken device as far as iTunes is concerned. The only thing to be careful about is not updating IOS on your iPad if iTunes offers it to you.

    I am certainly not an expert on moving iTunes between PC's but it sounds to be like the Windows Migration Assistant should help you. That helps transfer a complete iTunes account (as well as lots of other things, optionally) from a Windows PC to a new Mac computer.

    Have a look at this guide here - About Windows Migration Assistant

    Good luck.

    Thanks! I'll try the Migration Assistant again. When I first got my Mac, I didn't know what I was doing for the most part so I skipped a lot of the set-up stuff. I'm going to make the last transfers this week and become PC free! It's funny how after just a few months, I already find myself forgetting how to do something on my Windows laptop. Even though iTunes is so much friendlier on a Mac, I'm still not a fan. I don't hate it anymore though-baby steps :) Thanks again.

    I moved everything from PC to MBP, but put it on VMWare Fusion. To make iTunes work correctly in this manner, but using Fusion transfer or migration. I needed to first deactivate the computer. On the other computer reactivate. when transferring using a disk image, it was necessary to reinstall iTunes, but it retained my files. I also transferred my entire computer intact by first making a virtual driver for the PC to move to the iMac. Took a long time but worked. iTunes is one I had to reinstall to work right.
