    Hi guys, I just got an iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1 jailbroken with Absinthe 0.4 and when I plug it into iTunes to sync some apps the apply button in the bottom right hand corner doesn't work. Any ideas on how to fix this problem because I would like to be able to sync and not have to use the wifi sync.

    Thanks

    Open iTunes and plug in your iPad. Under Devices you will see your iPad. Right click and try to sync from there or click File at the top left and try that sync

    I tried that but all the sync buttons are "faded" and when I try to back up it works at the top for a second and then it just stops and leaves my iPad unchanged

    Lets try a hard reset. Press both the Home and Power buttons at the same time till the iPad shuts off. May have to hold them down for 10 seconds or more

    Also, there is an iTunes update. Have you updated iTunes ?

    You say the "Apply" button is greyed out? That is normal. The "Apply" button only activates when you make a change, by for example ticking or unticking and app or moving it between pages in iTunes itself. If you see the Apply button you likely have the wrong tab open in iTunes. If you switch back to the first tab, which has the general device information on it, the button should say "Sync" and that should be active. Press that to sync.

    The sync button is also "greyed out" and even when I make the changes the button doesn't change and also when I go into the file in the menu bar it says sync iPod not iPad and it is also "greyed out"

    Sounds like there may be a fault with the cable, particularly if wifi-sync works just fine like you said. It's not unusual for one or two connections on the 30 pins to give up after a while, which can produce unpredictable results. Maybe try another cable?
