You can update, but can't jailbreak. To update, connect your iPad to iTunes and back up your data. Hit restore, and it will restore to iOS 5 (when it comes out). After that, sync your stuff back on.

Not if you want to keep your jailbreak, but understand that your chances of restoring your ipad 2 to 4.3.3 with shsh's if it's 3G, are just about to disappear

Once iOS5 is Live, you can RESTORE to it but it'll kill your Jailbreak. iSuggest you to stay where you are and wait....

No you can't jailbreak iOS5, you'll need to wait for a tool to be developed to do that.....and i know you have an ipad 2, when I mentioned 3G, i wasn't talking about the old iphone
