    Greetings -

    I have a first gen jailbroken ipad which currently runs 4.3.3 - I would like to upgrade to 5.1 but do not know how to properly do so and it seems the more I read - the more confused I become. We use cydia and simply want to be able to play more games as my kids use this machine - but it now seems many games require an updated iOS - any help in this matter would make me a hero with my two kids - thanks in advance.

    You can upgrade/restore using iTunes to 5.1.1 (the highest firmware which the iPad 1 will accept)
    Then use Absinthe 2.0.4 to jailbreak.
