    I'm not going to do it right now, but I just want to know the process... Is all I do is go into iTunes and do a restore? Even if I've synced up after the jailbreak? What happens to all my apps, are they deleted? Do JB apps stay there and just not work?

    I'm just trying to figure out what to expect if I ever want to revert.

    A restore form itunes will be the way to revert jailbreak, All those 3rd party apps will be removed, all other apps will be synced from itunes back to ipad normally.

    So eventhough my latest backup is now post jailbreak, I can restore from this w/o a problem to get rid of my jb and be on stock 4.3.3?

    Is there a way to save multiple backups in iTunes?

    Basically I tried this because the CCK isn't working. I'm stuck with a positively bricked iPad now.

    Your iPad is truly bricked, meaning that it won't turn on at all? Or are you saying that because you can't use CCK it might as well be a brick because that's so important to you?

    Well, I screamed too fast. It was bricked in the sense that
    1. Error code during install
    2. Laptop in chinese (which I don't speak a word of)
    3. Raging and freaking out

    No avail after hard reboot etc.

    Turned out to be an issue with my hostfile.

    Problem solved.
