I have been trying since I got my Ipad2 or Christmas to get ios 5 installed on it. Everytime I tried it would never get past step 1/6-- "backing up". This last time it again halted at this step and actually caused my ipad to "turn off" (black screen with Apple logo and a loading icon with occasional beeping). Apparently I can't use icloud without this upgrade and really I can't sync my ipad with my computer because it keeps trying to upgrade it whenenever I plug it in. My iPhone4S which I now know already has ios 5 seems to work OK with my iTunes. Any suggestions?

Have you done anything since you've posted this thread? You're better off simply restoring the device in this case. Or, try using a different computer with the latest version of iTunes (10.5.3) installed onto it.

Got it done using my girlfriends computer but now the iPad wants to back up its photos to her computer and I can't figure out how to fix that.
