    hi,

    i have an jailbroken iPad 1 running iOS 4.3.1 (8G4). can i just use redsn0w to "upgrade" to iOS 5.0.1 doing it as iClarified describes here http://iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=18998? or do i have to unjailbrake (if so, how?) before i get going with redsnow?

    thanks.
    david

    Throw it into DFU, upgrade to iOS 5.0.1 using iTunes, then Jailbreak using Redsn0w.

    Will I lose all my present jb apps and configuration? I have pkgbackup, should I save the blobs? How? I don't have 3G. Can I return back to 4.3.3 if battery issues develop? Any step by step instructions anywhere to update without losing springboard layouts and jb apps? I used iClarrified to JB the 4.3.3.

    I have my iPad just the way I like it, but don't want to miss out on an untethered IOS 5 JB when apple stops signing

    TIA
