    I currently have an ipad2 that is jailbroken on os 4.3.3. I see the new jailbreak for ios5 is now available. My question is how to i upgrade an jailbroken ipad? Do i just have itunes install the latest ios 5.0.1 and then use the new jailbreak software? I dont have experience in jailbraking an already jailbroken device so step by step instructions would be greatly appreciated. I know people are probably very busy jailbraking their ipads now but if someone could respond/help me it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    The bolded text is exactly what you do.

    Some people report having success with just connecting the jail broken iPad2 to iTunes and hitting the restore button. That's changed from the past. But, it may work for you.

    If not, we normally encourage people to upgrade the firmware on an iPad after putting the iPad into DFU mode first. IOW, not relying on iTunes to do the job. If you wish to do this, please see this thread for the steps (saves me typing them out): http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...lsafe-method-restore-current-version-ios.html

    Either way, yes, you must get to stock iOS 5.0.1 first. Then, you can use the new Absinthe tool to re-jailbreak.

    Good luck.
