    You don't want to use iTunes or iCloud? These are the standard methods for doing a backup. I used iTunes to back up my iPad 2 then transferred everything back to my new iPad. It worked like a charm including my passwords. May I ask why you don't want to use these methods?

    Agree, you are making it very difficult for yourself by not using itunes or icloud.

    The procedure with itunes would be backup ipad2 and then restore from backup to new ipad. Its that simple.

    Since you removed the two most obvious, secure and reliable methods, then you are only left with jailbreaking both iPads. Good luck with that.

    I understand why you wouldn't want to use the icloud backup because it has to re-download all your apps and it is super slow but it is pretty easy with itunes normally.

    Using Itunes you can select the things you want and don't want on your new one. You don't have to transfer everything.

    iTunes...love it or hate it. I personally hate it. It's the clumsiest piece of software I have ever seen and actually accepted by the masses. It is unworthy of its association with such wonderful Apple hardware.

    As for your pictures, if you have Windows you only need to plug your iPad in with iTunes off and you'll be prompted to open or save your photos.

    If you are using a PC then I would recommend a program called iTools 2011 Beta. Actually I think they just released a 2012 version as well. It is a great program for transfer of media and other very cool features. I have used it for about 6 months on my iPhone and also now use it on my iPad. Cheers
