    Right, i have the original ipad, and dont see why i should upgrade, still running fast, does everything you could want it to do, yet apple decides not to update. Was pissed off about that, but i thought, could there be a way of hacking ios 6 to work on the original ipad? I really want IOS 6 on my original iPad, so could some one help me here?

    There is no way to get iOS 6 on to the original iPad.

    No can do. Each hardware requires a different build of iOS, so since Apple didn't write a build of iOS 6 for the iPad 1, there's no way that anyone else can.

    No, Apple is the only one who knows how, and they aren't going to tell you. Also, even if they told you, the amount of work required to make a version of iOS 6 for iPad 1 would be enormous -- as in requiring a team of people several weeks, at least. So no, it's practically not possible.
