    Hey guys is it possible to update my jailbroken 5.0.1 ipad 2 to 5.1.1 in the settings update thing? I dont mind losing my jailbreak. Actually, id rather prefer it going to stock 5.1.1(like a restore).

    No, you can't OTA a jailbroken device without messing it up. You need to do a full restore to 5.1.1, then jailbreak it when the new tool is released. Sorry :(

    You will have to use a computer to restore your iPad to the newest iOS. You can't do it on the iPad itself, unless, as f4780y pointed out, you want to mess up the iPad. It just won't work without a computer.

    If you are not using the iTunes that you normally sync the iPad to, then, when you first hook the iPad up to the different iTunes, once it shows in the left column, right click on it and select transfer purchases. However, before you do this, I suggest you create a separate iTunes library on that computer. Else, transferring your apps over may mess up the other person's iTunes account. Or, you can just re-download your apps from the App Store after you've restored the iPad.

    If you aren't using the original iTunes to which you first synced the iPad, then you will have to use a third party program (downloaded to a computer) that will transfer the music from the iPad to iTunes. You'll need to do this before you restore the iPad as the iPad will be wiped back to a fresh out of the box state when you restore. The syncing and "transfer purchases" option will not work on music that was not bought via iTunes or on the original account.

    You wont have any Cydia tweaks after this process is done because you won't be jail broken. However, with the jail break for iOS 5.1.1 coming out in the next day or two, you'll just have to wait until you can jail break it. But, after jail breaking, you'll be able to go back to Cydia and get your tweaks to reinstall them. Cydia is like the App Store in that any tweaks you've bought are yours forever.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on. Holler if you have more questions.

    You save all your app / game data using either the iTunes or iCloud backups (whichever you prefer). Personally, I use iCloud.

    Hope that helps.

    All of your data can be backed up to iCloud whether the app knows about it or not. The apps are never backed up because they are always available to redownload.

    Not all apps can store files to iCloud but that has nothing to do with backup and restore.

    Unfortunately, "transfer purchases" is only for transferring apps to iTunes. In order to get music off your iPad to the new iTunes, you'll have use a third party program. There are many out there on the Interwebz, I don't know any off the top of my head. Sorry.
