    I own a IPAD first generation. I'm currently running IOS 3.2 jailbroken. I was wondering, can I use a payload update or I.m obligated to use a custom firmware ? Should I update my ipad with Itunes and after this part, running any jailbreak version. Is the latest update 4.3.3 ?

    What is the simplest way for me to update my ipad with a jailbreak firmware ?

    thanks

    Thanks Graywolf. Will it mean a complete wipeout of my system (files, setting and everything) ?

    When you update with iTunes, it Keeps all your files.

    But sometimes when you do that ~ if I am not mistaken ~ you give incorrect advice. Perhaps you should start reading posts more than once.;)

    Which is why I don't give much advice.

    First thanks. Ok, I have to admit even after reading some of the sticky posts I'm still a little lost. I bought the apps from Cydia that allow the backing up of my packages. I can't used Dropbox because of my old firmware. I added a lot of great pdf books in Goodreaders will I lost them after my firmware update from Itunes ?

    There is a lot of jailbreak possibilities ranging from payload to custom but is it better to start off from scratch in terms of bugs or comptability issues ? Which is one of hacked firmware group is the most reliable or less buggy ?

    Thanks!
