    Hi all, so glad I found this great forum!

    I have a question for you folks...... I have a jailbroken iPad 2 running 4.3.3 (8J2). I did this jailbreak when it first came out for the Ipad2's.

    Now, everything is working fine, but I am wondering if I could/should jailbreak it to iOS5. There seem to be lots of guides and information, but I can't quite seem to find out what steps to take to jailbreak from an older 4.3.3 jailbreak.

    Am I out of luck for waiting too long?

    Sure would appreciate some advice. Thanks!!!!

    You can still update to 5.1.1 and jailbreak untethered.

    Just make sure you backup your iPad with iTunes. Then restore, this will wipe everything on the iPad and update it to 5.1.1.

    Then use a tool like absinthe or redsnow to jailbreak

    New to jailbreaking? Have a look at my Redsn0w Guide

    Wow, thanks for the super fast replies!
    I was a bit chicken once I did the original jailbreak, so I haven't even upgraded iTunes past 10.3.

    Can someone tell me if my steps are correct, and help me with #6. Thanks!!!

    So, I should:
    1) upgrade iTunes to latest
    2)backup my iPad in iTunes
    3)Do a restore to get to 5.1.1
    4)use one of the new jailbreak tools to jailbreak all over again
    5)I now have a jailbroken iPad at 5.1.1, but the iPad is empty with no content.
    6)--How can I get back all the previously installed apps and content?
