    Grabbed the ios5 update the day it came out and have not been happy ever since. So many stability issues, slowness, loss of battery, etc we all know the issues. I heard that some people downloaded a earlier version that was corrupt or or problematic in some way. Is this true? And if so, how can I reinstall a newer version that might not have these issues? I have tried all the reset, re-boot suggestions with no luck. I’m getting a bad taste in my mouth and would love to go up to the 3 when it comes out but not for nothing, I should not have to spend another $600 plus for a properly functioning iPad that is not even 2 years old. Am I missing another option?

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Just perform a reset via itunes. Plug the ipad into your computer and then select the restore button you see on itunes.

    Does the restore reinstall ios5 on the iPad automatically? How do I get my apps and Pic's back? I assume I backup but won't restore just wipe out everything.

    first perform a backup by syncing.

    The restore will wipe the iPad clear of everything an reinstall iOS 5. Once that is done it will prompt you and ask if you would like to set it up as a brand new iPAD or restore all apps and settings from your backup.
