Notice: this not works for iPad 1 with iOS 5.x, if you like multi-touch gestures feature, I recommend you don’t upgrade your iPad 1 to iOS 5.
We can find some guide on the Internet that show how to enable multi-touch gestures on iPad, but all of them request your iPad is jailbreaked, or need you own a Mac computer with XCode installed.
Now with iBackupBot, we can easily enable multi-touch gestures on iPad without jailbreaking:

4. Add below two line under <dict> line: <key>SBUseSystemGestures</key>
5. Click the Disk button to save changes then close the plist editor window.
Notice: When saving changes, the program will re-sort the contents of plist file by key, so the 2 lines you just added may been moved to other place, you can press CTRL+F and enter SBUseSystemGestures to find it.
6. Press CTRL+T, the program will prompt “Do you really want restore this backup to your device?”, just click Yes button.
7. After the restore process done, your iPad will restart automatically, then you can enjoy the multi-touch gestures feature.
