I just found out that ifunbox is not working and i can not go to the web site. I find that to be weird because ipad gen1 has not has support since forever. I was just using this for books.
Any alternatives would be nice or anything similar would be appreciated

What OS and Mac are you using? Or is it Windows? (Mobile Device Support indicates it).
I used iFunBox (1.8.1601) on Big Sur yesterday to transfer apps to iPadOS 15.7
To transfer pdfs to iBooks I simply use iTunes via Retroactive.
Alternatively for my iPad 1st gen I access my SMB share with pdfs via Filebrowser and select “open in iBooks“.

is the
ipad gen 1 5.1.1
W10 (touchscreen if that even matters)
Can I also use this for the apps, there is one app that has file transfer.
It just a bunch of pdf and txt files. I am not trying to dominate the world (not today yet)
Sorry for the late reply

I tested iTunes 12.12.4.1 and iPad 1st gen 5.1.1
1st Screenshot: You can drag'n'drop pdfs in the bottom area and they are automatically copied to iPads iBooks.app.
2nd Screenshot: If an app supports file sharing (like FileBrowser) you can drag'n'drop any filetype in the right area.
And like I said, you can also directly access network shares and send pdfs to iBooks completely wireless (via FileBrowser and SMB1 shares).
Fun fact, with Kodi (jailbreak required) you can watch SAT>IP on your 12 year old iPad ;)
