    Does anybody know if it is possible to remove iOS 5 from an iPad 2 and revert to previous iOS 4. Reason 2 mainly used apps no longer work I.e Stanza and Print and Share.

    Can this be done via iTunes 10.5 ?

    Thanks for any input

    According to everything I've seen so far, there is no way to downgrade from 5.0. You're stuck with it.

    Most apps are in process of being updated to work with 5.0, give it some time.

    Thanks guys for the feedback. In fact did try last night via iTunes picking an old backup file pre iOS 5 - 9 hours later no change! Will check out the link but likely have to accept the inability to print directly. On the web it was suggested the Apple have blocked apps that access the action button print function, if that's true then one has to use some convoluted way of printing or it's a new printer (no blo..y way, I have a Photosmart wireless but a 309 not 310 !).

    Yes will wait to see if updates arrive or some guru can circumvent Apple iOS. Not pleased !

    Many thanks once again for the input.

    Cheers Globalpad

    Ps No Stanza (Amazon !!) disaster !
