Updating took more than 4 hours. Part of the process (using iTunes for Windows) said that a backup was being created, but none appears to be there, and the last backup was one I did in August.

While Safari and other Apple apps worked fine, most other apps did not work until I did a shutdown and restart.

However, the biggest problem is this:

The iPod icon is gone, replaced with a new one labeled Music. However, all my music, playlists, podcasts, iTunes University downloads are gone. I am not sure of the best way to get this material back.

By the way, previously downloaded tv show episodes and music videos are gone as well.

I am using a first gen iPad.

Single stick, I, too, lost all of the music that I added to the iPod app via disk. Does anyone know how to recover those albums. This aspect of the upgrade sucks!

You need to synch with iTunes and click on your device on left hand side and synch your media again like you normally do. It will all be there from your last back up. It's because the device is still ticked with synching with computer. When you have synced, tick the box synch with iCloud and your good to go

Hayles66- it won't let me sync anymore. The sync box is grayed out. How do I get that back? Do I check sync with computer or sync with cloud?

Me too. I guess it is just everyone is on line pushing max out of update servers...

Well at the end it all went smooth. A the end of the day I ended up with my iPad2 and iPone3gs running iOS5.
My best practice for how to update to ios5 is:
1. Connect device to iTunes on Mac or PC
Click on Download only updates
Be patient, go for coffe or walk you pet - untill it downloads safely, repeat if "bussy server" error occur
2. Reconnect device
This time go for update device
If it fails - just repeat this step since it is 99.99% due to server overload
Let it finish
3. Sice I have 3G on both devices I had to enter APN for my telco mobile operator manually
And thats it.
Btw
there has been some "multigestures not available anymore" rumor - but in iPad General Settings section you can enable it
Good luck. Be patient. Enjoy iOS5.
Thank you Steve. God bless you!

I'm not entirely sure what you are saying but if you want to get your apps back then open the App Store and click on the purchased tab, you can re-download them for free from there.

Plug your iPad into your computer and launch iTunes. In the lefthand sidebar where you see your iPad, click on the iPad so that you see your Summary screen. Scroll down the screen (it's longer than it used to be) and you'll see your sync options. As Rich has explained previously, selecting the option to backup to iCloud doesn't mean you can't use your computer for backups and syncs - it just means doing it manually in iTunes. My plan is to backup to the cloud once a day, to my pc once a week.
