    I just got an Ipad 1 that is already jailbroken and running 4.2.1 but I am having a lot of problems with it. I want to make it 5.0.1 and I have put the ipad into DFU mode....i-tunes is asking me to "Restore" device.....Do I do that??
    what do I do ?


    thanks

    Don't restore just yet, I'm going to move your post over to the hacking forums and give you some forum reading......hold tight there, it may be a wild ride......

    Gabe's got it right in that you don't want to restore. In fact, a jail breaker should never really use iTunes to do any thing without first doing some prep work.

    Since your iPad1 is already jail broken, you should have SHSH blobs saved for iOS 5.0.1. So, follow this tutorial for upgrading to and then jail breaking your iPad1 on iOS 5.0.1: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=69285

    That tutorial includes steps for getting your SHSH blobs for iOS 5.0.1, so it's all in one step. However, if you find out that you DON'T have the blobs for that iOS, holler back and we'll go to option 2.

    For now, good luck with this link and tutorial. Let us know how you get on.
