    My ipad is running iOS5.1 and i prefer not to upgrade to iOS6 until an official google map is released.
    However, itunes shows there is over 4gB of "others" which may make my ipad working slow.

    I have tried to "restore from backup" in itunes but didn't help.
    I did not "restore" as it would upgrade my ipad to iOS6.
    Would the option "reset all contents & settings" in ipad work?
    Will it lead to a force upgrade afterwards?

    Please help, thanks! :)

    I cannot give you a definitive answer without trying it, but it's probably your best chance of resetting without upgrading or jail breaking.

    I am waiting as well, but I can't BELIEVE Apple has allowed the update to sit on my phone in the "other" folder. It is bordering on a forced upgrade, something I am not a fan of.

    You can reset all content and settings without it asking to be updated. It's only if you do it through iTunes it'll try to update.

    I may be wrong but I thought the reset all content and settings buttons was a big no go for jailbroken devices?

    When i reset all contents & settings in the ipad,
    i expect it will be restore to its factory state (ios5.1)
    What if i then plug in the itunes and then restore from backup (also 5.1)?
    Will itunes force it to upgrade to ios6?
    :eek:

    Oh my bad! That'll teach me to pay more attention to what I'm reading in the future.
