    You mean not restore backed up apps but reinstall all of them like new? This will be my first backup, going to download it to pc and instll backup from iTunes as have slow connection, really don't understand what you mean? By setting it up as new?

    I just bought a iPad 1st gen from Apple, with ios5 on it, I so far love it, and for the cost of the iPad 2 basic I got the larger iPad 1 with 64GB and 3G! I am new to Apple products as the iPad is my 1st Apple purchase. However Loved it enough Im typing this post on my new MacBook Air 13"! I have completely left PC behind now. Proud Apple customer now and going forward.

    I run iOS 5.01 and it works fine. Although safari crashes every now and again. It's worth it for gestures lol

    I haven't yet upgraded to IOS5, mostly because I'm lazy and I just hate doing anything with iTunes.
    But now I read numerous reports of IOS5 being not such a good idea for the iPad 1, specifically that memory problems cause Safari to crash very frequently. If its true, I would be very unhappy and would not want to upgrade. I see enough Safari crashes as it is...

    Anyone claim that Safari crashes LESS with IOS5 on the iPad1?

    I have iPad 1st gen. Trying to upgrade to iOS5 but keep getting stuck "backing up" and left it alone for 24 hours and still backing up?:mad:
    I do not have that many apps still have 26GB of free sapce. I have read some threads here with similar issues.
    Would it be best just to restore to original settings and then try to upgrade? I do have the latest iTunes and have good broadband speed.. It only took 30 minutes to download.
