    Since I got my iPad I can sync just fine and do everything else but update the OS. Whenever there's a new OS update it will get about 1/4th of the way and then give me an "Unknown Error(2009)"
    this puts my device into recovery mode and I have to "Update & Restore" which takes hours. What's causing this?

    If you update to the latest firmware you will not be able to jailbreak as it patches the exploit.

    What kind of computer do you have lol? What firmware are you trying to update to?

    It takes roughly 10 minutes to restore my iPad but then again I never back up.

    I'm not jailbreaking this particular ipad, I run a homebuilt system, a couple of years old, WinXP SP3. I am unable to use my USB 2.0 ports for my iDevices, Apple products seem to have a problem with them, so I'm stuck using my slow 1.0 ports instead. Hopefully I'll have an iMac in a couple months, (Hmmm can I transfer my saved iTunes folders & Apps from Windows to Mac?) until then I'm stuck with this.

    I think that USB 1.0 might be the problem.

    What's your thinking on that?
