I currently have an iPad 2 that is JB'd on 5.0.1. I am wanting to upgrade to IOS 7 and have a few questions.

1. Are there any noticeable problems running an iPad 2 on IOS 7 (slowdowns, crashes, etc)?

2. Is the new IOS 7 jailbreak safe to use on iPad 2's? I heard earlier versions of the jailbreak had problems and I"m just wanting to make sure prior to doing the update.

3. Are these the correct steps to doing a jailbreak on iOS 7:

- itunes backup of my iPad 2
-restore ipad to and it will update to IOS 7.0.4
- restore from backup
- jailbreak

Sorry for the newbie questions. I have done some research but there is lots of conflicting information so I thought I would ask the community before going ahead.

Thanks

That's pretty much it!

I have an iPad 2 also - on 5.0.1 JB. I JB's mine because my 3-year-old was constantly launching stuff he and I didn't want him to by accident (Safari) so I installed SBSetting to make the icon disappear.

In fact, the only icons he has access to now are his kid apps.

I'm trying to figure out if SBSettings is compatible with the iPad 2 on iOS JB yet or not before I upgrade though.

In Cydia, it says it's not yet iOS7 compatible. So I don't want to risk my 5.0.1 JB to find out.

But anyway, form what I understand, evasion works fine on a iPad 2 since it's just an A5 CPU.

1. Update to new firmware 7.0.4
2. Make a backup
3. Download Evasi0n jailbreak and follow instructions, it's very easy

You make a backup before updating your firmware, that is, if you want to bring back all your settings and apps and such easily
