    Just by upgrading the iOS to 4.3.4 will do the unjailbrake

    Upgrading or restoring should do the trick.

    The above posts are correct, however just pressing the "update" button in iTunes will leave the JB files on your iPad, they just won't be visible or operate. I'm guessing that is not what you want.

    You should sync with iTunes, then press "restore" which will install 4.3.4 stock IOS, then when this is complete it will prompt you to "set up as new" or "restore from backup". You should then choose "restore from backup" which will get all your apps, settings, and media back on the device MINUS the JB files (as these are not backed up by iTunes). Just leave the iPad connected to iTunes during this process. It will re-boot in between and then re-sync everything back the way it should be.

    Hope that helps.

    If I back it up after I jail broke it, will cydia be backed up too? Because I don't want cydia and I don't want to lose my games

    No. The above post was a different situation.

    Un-jailbreaking problems on an Ipad2

    y son listened to my brother, yesterday, and allowed his Ipad2 to be jailbroke. My son wasn't happy with it (many of his songs no longer would play), so he went to his Ipad and selected the restore option. That was last night, around 10pm (Sunday). It is now Monday morning, around 6:30am and his Ipad still appears to be working on restoring. What do I need to do? Should I just let the battery die or is there a reset button on the Pad itself? He did not update the software before using restore, simply because the software was already up to date. Thank you for any help you can offer me!!

    The "Reset all content and settings" option which your son probably used should not be done on a jailbroken iPad.

    You need to use iTunes to restore the device. Plug it into the PC and hold both the home and power buttons together for 30 seconds until the "connect to iTunes" graphic is displayed on the screen. Then, once iTunes recognises the device in recovery mode, press the "restore" button in iTunes. It should then restore the iPad for you.

    If you still can't get that to work, follow the steps in this guide as a last resort - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...lsafe-method-restore-current-version-ios.html

    Also, whilst I appreciate you are past that point now, there is absolutely no reason why a newly jailbroken iPad will refuse to play any music which already played on it before. Jailbraking does not prevent you from using any of the features of the iPad. It was perhaps something he installed after the jailbreak...
