Not updating to ios 5
The restoration method requires you to manually download the i OS IPSW for your Apple device.
Apple requires you to have the most recent i Tunes version.
We suggest you back up your i Pad/i Phone/i Pod Touch through i Tunes. Make sure you have the latest version of i Tunes which at the time of this writing is version 10.5.
What will happen is your i Pad/Apple Device flash/hard drive will be wiped clean, and i Tunes will restore your i Pad/Apple Device with the new i OS 5 operating system.
You will have to download the update file again, or you can follow the Manual Update Instructions below.
Disable your anti-virus and firewall software, and restart i Tunes before trying to update your i Pad again.

Muscle Nerd just sent out a warning via Twitter, telling jailbreakers with an i Pad 2, a new i Pad or an i Phone 4S to stay away from the update.
