    hi!
    i have to bring my pad to the store as a button doesnt work properly.
    now as apple states every ipad looses its guarantee if it is jailbreaked i have to unjailbreak it. would be easy just updating to the new os but i would really like to keep my os as it is now.
    is there any way to make a copy of my os including everything on the pad and putting it back on later (like with pwnage for the iphone?)

    cheers

    you will have to re-jailbreak when you get it back, more than likely it will have the latest OS on it . So in order to re-jailbreak you will have to downgrade to 3.2.1, since it's already jailbroken you should have shsh blobs on file with cydia ( check and make sure).

    To check fire up cydia and look at top of the home screen, you should see "This device has SHSHs on file for iPhone OS/IOS: 3.2,3.2.1,3.2.2"

    so to re-jailbreak, get copy of 3.2.1 firmware , add Saurik's server to your hosts file and then do a restore of the 3.2.1 firmware then re-jailbreak.

    All they have to do is find the Cydia app I think.

    I just got my iPad a few days ago and hadn't really read about jailbreaking until now. iTunes already updated it to 3.2.2 Do I have any hope for jailbreaking?
