    You are on iOS 5.1.1 now? What is the error that you are getting? And, what are you trying to do that gives you that error?

    Just do the upgrade thorugh your Itunes. Use a USB cable to connect iPad to computer and it should take you to where you want to be. I had the same problem trying to download directly from the ipad in the settings.

    Same unable to update both from itunes or settings from device... It just simply do not download the whole package. My internet is working fine so there is no chance that the file download process is getting interrupted or anything like that.

    Even the restore isn't functional

    Okay, I think I got it now...

    You have an iPad2 that is jail broken on iOS 5.0.1 and you want to upgrade to iOS 5.1.1 and then re-jail break it with Absinthe 2.0. Right?

    If that is it, then "all" you need to do it restore that iPad to iOS 5.1.1 using iTunes. Use the steps in this tutorial exactly to get you to a stock iOS 5.1.1: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=52863. Once you follow the tutorial, you'll then has a stock iPad2 on 5.1.1 and then you can run Absinthe.

    Your problems occurred because (1) you cannot do the over-the-air update (OTA) on a jail broken iPad and (2) you need to be in DFU mode to use iTunes to upgrade the iOS. That's why you kept getting the errors on the iPad and in iTunes.

    So, follow the tutorial and then you'll set your iPad up on iOS 5.1.1 to do the jail break.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    Done...
    What i did?

    I turned off my ipad
    Pressed the home button and connected the usb cable with itunes running on PC
    keeping the Home button pressed i waited till the "connect to itunes" appeared on the ipad screen then left it.
    The device is now in Restore mode
    Then i clicked on restore button and waited for the restore and update to ios5.1.1 has finished
    And this time it was a success....

    Thanks a lot everybody for your help
