I had a lot of songs on my iPad. After update done I had to reinstall all but the original apps. Plus the songs show up in iTunes but they wouldn't sync because I had used a different iTunes before but I couldn't use that one because it was on a computer that needed a new motherboard and I opted to get a new computer.

I got a first gen iPad and iPad2 done today. I'm working on a iPhone 4 now and the Mobile Me to iCloud switch so I don't get double contacts and calander events

I did an iPad 1 and iPad 2 today as well. I think what really helped is that I reset the iPad 1 to factory settings, installed iOS5, then restored it using a back-up; the chief delay seems to be the backup process, so if you take Apple out of the equation it speeds things up. It took 30 minutes to download the update and only 30 minutes to restore my setup.

This is what always causes the major problem of how long your update will take, good advice given in this post, takes far less time. I have done iPod, iPhone and iPad1 this way this morning with no problems at all. It will all take as long as it takes, you can't hurry it!

Just to check did you guys update to the latest version of iTunes as I did when prompted and the DL was less then 20 mins slowest part was the backup & restore. iPhone was fine iPad doesn't have all my music images or podcast restored so will reset & restore later if I can be asked that is!

Al.

Hold your finger on the little keyboard symbol you use to 'put away' your keyboard, allows you to split keyboard
