    I was considering trying out the beta of iOS5, but ive heard rumors that once you go 5, you cant go back. Is this true?

    All you have to do is go to iTunes and hold shift and click restore, and select iOS 4.3.3. You may be able to just click restore and it will work, but I wanted to make sure it went back to 4.3.3. It's real simple, just like any other restore.

    It works really good. I don't see any reason to go back.

    The only reason I went back is because apparently my backup file was corrupt or not compatible. Otherwise I would have stayed with iOS 5.

    From my own findings,
    -iCloud
    -iTunes Wi-Fi syncing
    I know there are more but that's what I have found.

    My icloud is working today. Really cool feature. And the wifi sync with iTunes is also working. My cameras shutter is stuck closed now, very strange. I downloaded a couple songs from my icloud and they are playing fine.

    The iTunes sync is very similar to the free app remote. I think that's what it's called.

    Try going to your music tab on your iPad on the bottom there's a tab that says more. Your computers library should be in there. Make sure sharing is on in your iTunes if it isn't.

    I didn't mean sharing. I know about that and it's already on. It still won't work.

    I can't get WiFi sync to work either. I have my computer on, even have iTunes opened up, and the sync option on my iPad is greyed out.

    On Apples iOS5 page it says this about WiFi Sync:
    Every time you connect your iOS device to a power source (say, overnight for charging), it automatically syncs and backs up any new content to iTunes.

    I have tried with my iPad connected to the charger and nothing changed so my guess is this feature is not enabled yet.

    Does reverting back to iOS 4.3.3 restore all your old settings, apps and files like music, photos, notes and etc.?

    No, not usually - unless you've never backed up your iPad since you moved off of iOS 4.3.3. The iPad gets restored from backup if you choose that option and iTunes only keeps one backup.

    On a side note, you can't go to iOS 4.3.3 unless you have save SHSH blobs and have an iPad1 or a WiFi only iPad2. Just wanted to save you time...

    As for the wifi thing, you have to enable it in iTunes. Plug into iTunes, and near the bottom, with all the checkboxes, one of them says "sync with this iPad over wifi". Make sure that is checked and hit "apply".

    Unless you have SHSH blobs saved for a previous version then you cannot go back.

    Have you tried holding the on/off button until the slider appears, slide to switch off, then once off restart? This has been known to help.

    Also have you run the battery completely down recently to allow it to recalibrate?
