    OK...I have a jailbroken iPad 2...I just got the notice that 5.1 is available. I know updating will remove my Jailbreak..and any tweaks I downloaded. I am thinking about doing the update...besides being able to test out apps before purchasing them (YES I have tried apps from a piracy-enabling tweak but I HAVE purchased a good number of them that I thought were worth it...there were a few apps that were $30 or more that I wanted to try BEFORE paying for them. I HAVE deleted the one's I didn't like or use...I'm just being honest here so don't judge :) there really wasn't much extra JB really offers me.

    My question is what steps do I need to take right now as is? How do I back up with iTunes (just sync or is there a full back up somewhere?)...what else will I lose besides Jailbreak? Will I lose any data saved in my apps? Any settings? (Bluetooth pairings, wifi settings, etc)....if I DO decide to update I want to do this right..

    Thank you for the help! I am still new to iOS and this is my first actual update process. I now what to expect with Android updates...been through MANY of them!

    But, Mike, we ARE going to judge you about using/doing piracy. Really don't care about your justifications - you downloaded apps for free that you should have paid for. That is piracy.

    Here at this forum, we do not discuss any piracy-enabling tweaks or repos nor do we provide support for those that commit piracy. All this is in our rules - to which you agreed when you signed up.

    We will, however, give you two free pieces of advice:

    1) You can restore your iPad to the new iOS version using a backup and all your apps and settings will be fine.

    2) Don't be a pirate!
