Here's what I have and what I want to do: Ipad first generation, 16gb wifi, 4.3.3, JB and using Displayout to "mirror" using the official AV adapter to HDMI going to a projector.
The problem is that my Ipad displays a message about the adapter not supported. Is there a way to get around this? I already did a hard reset with the adapter connected (a friend suggested this, but no luck).
I've seen videos of first gen Ipads mirroring using this same adapter so I have no clue what I am missing! I tested the cable using the iphone 4s and it works perfect, so that rules out defective cables/adapter. If anyone has any suggestions I'd appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.

Didn't the AV to HDMI adapter come available after iOS 5.0?

Isn't displayout only compatible with AV to VGA adapter? That was what I used when I had the first gen iPad.
