Thread: Updating my iPad 1 to 5.1.1

  1. #1
    Default Updating my iPad 1 to 5.1.1
    How can i update my iPad 1 to 5.1.1 w/o any backups? I don't have extra disk space left for the backup, and i'm annoyed because it keeps on making a backup while updating it, and after that it says no extra disk space left so it stops on updating. To keep things short, i can't update my iPad 1 because of it. Any help to disable the backup so i can update it successfully?

    Restoring to a custom IPSW will stop the backup process. You can get a custom IPSW from the downloads tab of this site and then do a shift + restore in iTunes. Later on it will give you the option to restore to an older backup.

    Umm, no. A regular restore from recovery or DFU will do the same, no need for a custom ipsw. And there are no downloads for custom ipsw on this site.

    You will want it to do that backup or at least a normal backup if you want to keep all your stuff after that update to 5.1.1. I suggest freeing up some space on your computer first.
    Or alternatively do a normal backup in iTunes first (right click on your iPad and choose backup) then put your iPad in recovery or DFU mode and restore to 5.1.1. Then restore from the backup you made before.
