    Dear All,

    I've played with jailbreak quite abit and now I've decided to revert back to normal. I've search in google and even here but didn't quite get a clear answer ... from google

    seems easy but comments say that it doesn't really work?

    From ipf forums

    http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreaking-hacking-tutorials-how-guides/52863-tutorial-failsafe-method-restore-current-version-ios.html

    t
    here's a note that says

    "NOTE: - You should only try this guide if you are getting errors when trying to restore IOS on your device. If you haven't tried yet, simply connect your device to iTunes and press "restore". 99% of the time this will succeed! Even for a jailbroken iPad! Go on, give it a go first!"

    Which is basically the same .. so does this really works? Is it as easy as backing up my ipad ... restore .. then restore from backup .. the jailbreak will be gone but all data will remain ?? (besides those app from cydia and whatnot)

    Yes, most of the time it is that easy. You (1) connect the iPad to iTunes, (2) make a back-up and (3) press the "Restore iPad..." button on the main Summary tab. After a prompt or two from iTunes, you will end up with an iPad running the newest iOS (iOS 5.1.1 for an iPad 1 - iOS 6.1.3 for all others).

    It's when (if) you run into difficulties that we recommend doing the "Failsafe" method. But, generally, this simple method works fine.

    P.S. I removed an external "how-to" link you had added to your thread. It was not necessary as we have such How-To info here. Thanks.

    Yes. You will prompted to do so (by iTunes) at some point in the restore process. Is why you make the backup beforehand - so you can "restore" to it.

    With that, and because of your request - this thread is closed.
