    Been there and it wasn't satisfactory. Sorry to say anything stock above 4.3.5 is a total resource and battery hog on the ipad 1. Unfortunately, once you upgrade you cant back it off to a lower level without jailbreaking or replacing the device under warranty. I got lucky and my digitizer and battery started to go, so i got a new stock 4.3.5 device. Try 5.1.1 Absinthe to see if there are ways to tweak performance. Failing that, there is a jailbreak option to take you back to 4.3.5.

    I posted last night to see if there are benefits to jailbreaking to 5.1.1 Absinthe. But i would never go to stock 5.1.1 again unless i bought a new iPad.

    Good luck!

    Hmm, I think not so much, you don't really have to "jailbreak" to downgrade to a lower iOS firmware. This process has something to do with SHSH blobs, although I forgot how, there is a way.


    Not so much on my case, when I upgrade my iPad 5.1.1 before I had it jailbroken, I didn't really have any problem with it's performance or with it's battery, I dunno but I guess it was just me? I was also even able to play for hours.

    But I think yes, the first possible solution for this problem is I guess having it jailbroken and have it "tweaked".

    I read blog posts abt just finding an old version on your system and pointing itunes towards it. But, when i did this, itunes said i was trying to install an out of date version. So jailbreaking, for me, seems the only answer to going backlevel.

    And, when I had 5.1.1 it was better than 5.0 but nowhere near 4.3.5 in speed and battery performance.

    Oh? I thought I've also read about an article towards that, but nevermind about it.

    Then I guess try jail breaking it? But before you do that, search for these "tweaks" that can help optimize your iPad before jail breaking it.

    The tweaks can only be applied to a jail broken device (I.e., over clocking, power management). Other than making sure to close all open apps, turning off data functions when not in use, and dimming the screen, there really aren't any other tweaks you can do to a stock device.

    I know dude, I was just saying that if you wanted your device jailbroken, you must already know the tweaks that you can apply to your iPad rather than having a hard time finding for those tweaks when you really are just conservative about your ipad and doesn't want jail broken unless it's your last choice.....

    Makes sense. Plus somebody just posted on another thread that there aren't that many tweaks. There's not much in the way of the true overclocking, and there isnt virtual memory management the way you would have in a pc environment. The only solutions i can think of are to find an excuse to get replaced under Apple Care, or jail break back to 4.3.5, which you can do. I keep reading about tricks for going backlevel on a stock device, by directing itunes towards an old version. But, i tried and it said i couldnt. Maybe it was just me.

    Maybe. But I did a restore and it didn't fix my lag issues.
