What will happen if I update my iPad 1 JB 4.2.1 to 5.1.1 as iTunes would like to do?

    It is a 64Gig Wifi unit. Have tons of movies, books and apps. Will the 5.1.1 update even work with a jailbroken iPad and will I lose all my movies, books apps etc? I have been thinking about this as so many programs now require 4.3 and later.

    A normal updating of your iPad to iOS 5.1.1 will not cause you to lose any of your content. iOS 5.1.1 is very jail breakable and you should have no trouble jail breaking your iPad after the update.

    Why does itunes warn me that I will lose all my apps and media etc if I update. Is there a way around this?

    The Best way to avoid the problem is to use the computer you used in the ast to sync your iPad. If this isn't possible, you should authorize the new computer before connecting your iPad and syncing. Go here to learn how to authorize your computer.http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1420

    Are you saying that you obtained paid apps for free? That would be a form of piracy and is nothing more than theft. Stay legal and pay for your purchases.

    No I am saying there may be some apps on my iPad that were purchased by the original owner. (I bought it used)
    I am worried about those apps. I have synced, backed up and transferred the purchases and authorized the computer but I still get the you will loose everything warning. This has me concerned.

    Any downloaded apps that were on your iPad when you purchased it belong to the original owner, not you. You don't have the right to keep them as it wasn't you who purchased them.You should delete them and re-purchase them with your own Apple ID.

    The original owner sold the ipad and all the apps he purchased to me. The Bill of Sale lists all the apps he has sold and assigned to me.

    These folks infer that Apple will delete any apps that it sees were not purchased by me through the app store. ??
