    How do I upgrade from the overhyped ios5 back to 4.3? As an iPad 1 user I feel 5 is a retrograde step after having gestures and AirPrint. Nothing really exciting on 5 despite what the fanboys think. I am sure lots of ipad1 users will feel the same.

    Once you've upgraded to iOS5 there's no way to return to an earlier version. It's simply not possible.

    What problem are you having with AirPrint?

    Wll not work with Win 7. Not really Apples fault, but still, the only 2 tweaks I have applied using ipad 1 are now defunct, although I guess there will be a way to enable gestures again eventually.

    In my particular case however, I feel I would have been better off not downgrading to ios 5.

    As Marie said, are you JB? AirPrint works fine so I'm not sure what the issue with Windows 7 is? How is Windows relevant to AirPrint?

    There is a tweak out there on the web which allows you to run airprint services on your Windows PC, it will allow you to print to your network connected printers using the Apple air print option on your Pad, however since the upgrade this no longer works, I'm not a happy camper about this.This is NOT associated with jailbreaking.

    BTW according to the website (jaxov) they are currently working on an update to fix this.

    So are you saying that FingerPrint doesn't work now?

    I just looked at Fingerprint, it appears similar to what the Jaxov tweak does, but since I don't use that I can't say if has been affected by the upgrade.
