    I was given a iPad 1 running 5.1.1 and wanted to jailbreak it for something to do. When I ran redsn0w it tells me I need to update iTunes. How do I go about that, under settings it tells me I am up to date. I have a fair amount of rooting experience but I'm a android person and never owned any Apple products. Thank you for any advice.

    Welcome to iPad Forums!

    To update iTunes on your PC, open iTunes, go to the menu bar at the top. Select Help - Check for Updates, and follow the instructions.

    If you haven’t installed iTunes on your computer yet, you’ll find a link on this site:
    iTunes - Download iTunes Now

    Hope that helps.

    I've moved your thread to the iPad Hacking Forum where it will receive more attention.

    It appears I successfully jailbroke the iPad using absinthe 2.0 . I didn't get to watch it I was fixing my maserati but when I went to look a few minutes later it says restore in progress. I'll let you know more after I get off work late ttonight. Owning your own business doesn't always leave time for fun lol

    Also is there a way to tell if it's a successful break? Thanks for your time and trouble.
