    Hello, I'm new here, I was wondering if you could help me with a problem. I'm trying to jailbreak my iPad 2 5.0.1 using absinthe and eveything works fine untill an error window pops up. It says this: "the attached device has a backup password set. You need to disable the backup password in ITunes before you can continue. Start iTunes, remove the backup password, and start this program again"

    I cannot figure out how to remove the backup password. Could someone run me through this? Thank you

    All I need to do is figure out how to uncheck that little box next to "change password" but it won't let me. Surely someone must know how to do this?

    If nobody knows, could one of you at least direct me to where I could find the answer?

    Try going to the apple iPad discussion thread, then posting your question in the iPad hacking section. You might get more answers that way.

    I don't use backup encryption myself. However, you probably need to authenticate with iTunes before you can remove the password, otherwise it would not be secure at all.
    So you can't just untick the box, but you probably will be able to after you change the password. I'm not sure if you can change it to blank and that will clear it, but try that, and if not, change it to a new value that you will not forget. Then see if it will let you untick the box. If not, reboot. The one thread I read on this said that after the password was changed and they rebooted, it then allowed them to untick the box.
