    How much time a day do you spend on your ipad?

    The safest way to upgrade your iPad is to connect it to the most recent version of iTunes. After making a backup and, if iTunes has not already prompted you to, press the "check for update" button on the main Summary page. iTunes will check, see that there is an update available and, after you tell it to, it will proceed to update your iPad to iOS 6.

    Once it's done, you should be good to go - running a stock iPad on iOS 6.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    P.S. I've moved this post of yours to its own thread in the jailbreaking section. Mainly because it was off-topic in the thread you posted in.

    My bad. You have to select "restore," not update for an iPad that is jail broken. If you try to run "update" - it won't work (AFAIK). Sorry for the erroneous post above.

    Restore will load a "fresh" iOS 6 onto your iPad.

    It is impossible to brick an iPad via a restore or update operation, even if the device is jailbroken first. There are plenty of safeguards built in to prevent this. Even if the process is interrupted or fails, it can be run again.

    Unless there is a hardware fault with the device then you should always be able to get back to a stock device running the latest version of IOS available for it.

    We have a comprehensive guide here IF you get into trouble - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...lsafe-method-restore-current-version-ios.html

    Hope that clarifies.

    If you read the link that f4780y has given you, the first thing it says is..... 1. Update iTunes to the latest version

    From there on in, its an easy to follow guide, hope it all goes ok for you
