    Good Morning -

    I've had my iPad2 for a few moths now. It came with 4.3.3 installed so I jailbroke it straight away. Unfortunatly, I was too late to get the SHSH blobs for that version.

    Yesterday I was using the iPad as usual when it all of a sudden rebooted. This happens sometimes, so I just waited for it to come back up. The only problem was that instead it went into Recovery Mode.

    I launched TinyUmbrella (newest version) and choose to "Exit Recovery." It rebooted the iPad and I was taking a while so I thought it was fixed. Right before it would usually get to where it prompts for my passcode, though, it rebooted again and went back into Recovery Mode.

    I tried kicking it with RedSn0w too, but it said it didn't support the iPad2. I also got into DFU and ran "Fix Recovery" in TinyUmbrella, but that didn't do anything.

    I'd love to be able to restore it, but must have it jailbroken and the earliest SHSH blobs I have are 4.3.5. The good news (if any) is that iTunes does see it as a device in recovery mode. At least it detects it! (for now)

    Any Suggestions? Please Help! Thanks!

    If you don't have blobs for 4.3.3, you're out of luck as far as JB is concerned. That's the only firmware that was JB'd for the iPad2. Additionally, if you have a iPad2 3G model, you also won't be able to restore to anything other than current firmware (5.0.1 as of today), and I'm guessing that may be your current issue.
