[iPad] iPad 1, can't upgrade to 5.1.1 from 4.2.1 with iTunes

We are trying to update a first gen iPad for one of our execs. We keep getting "iTunes was unable to load data class information from Sync Services"
So we tried all the suggested fixes we could find,

Rename "Sycservices" folder and deleted nested "local" folder.
deleted cached backups in iTunes
ran Tinyumbrella to circumvent the Apple server
completely deleted iTunes, Quicktime, Bonjour and reinstalled iTunes

Still no joy...any help would be greatly appreciated...

Are you doing this from Mac or Windows?
If windows., check your host file.

Windows XP, checked the host and it seemed to have the correct entries. When we installed Tinyumbrella, it runs a small local server to circumvent the Apple server and changes the host file so it looks at 127.0.0.1 for gs.apple.com.

Right, can you take out 127.0.0.1 for gs.apple.com from your host file.
and see if it works?

in task mgr try to kill SyncServer.exe
and try open itunes and connect

also try c:\doc settings \ user \AppData\Roaming\AppleComputer
Rename SyncServices folder to SyncServices_Old or SuncServices_Other or something like that
Reconnect iPad
Open iTunes

if that does not work,
Copying the SQLite3.dll file into the to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support'
