    Hi guys, I just swapped my iPad 2 out for yet another new one (and flawless screen-wise; yes, they do exist!) and it turns out that it came with 4.3.1. :cool:

    Being that 4.3.3 just came out hours ago, will Apple still let me upgrade to 4.3.2? I read somewhere that they do allow customers to upgrade to the immediate predecessor of a just released iOS update for a short period of time. Is this true?

    Yes, I know there's no jailbreak for the iPad 2 yet, but I'm not worried about my location data, which this mini update is all about. However, I'd like to get 4.3.2 for its (supposed) battery life benefits.

    It also happens to be something that I've always wanted to know how to do, i.e. upgrade to a version that is different than what iTunes serves up.

    Oh, and yes, I have my SHSH blobs for 4.3.2 saved by way of TinyUmbrella, if that makes any difference. ;)

    Thanks very much for any responses! :)

    Great! Now, how exactly would I do that? I'll have to find the official 4.3.2 IPSW file and then what? Do I use iTunes for it?

    Yes, just get 4.3.2 somewhere and you can restore normally for the moment it looks like.

    Good stuff! Thank you! Just did a successful upgrade to 4.3.2 without any issues. I had forgotten that I had to hold the Option key while clicking on Restore. (this is on the Mac; Windows works the same way but it's a different key obviously)

    (all we need now is a JB ;-) )

    I never get these threads. Wouldn't checking tiny umbrella be faster then asking.

    I'd love to see an end to this question. With every new firmware release this question is posted. Can I still restore to the previous firmware since a new firmware came out today?

    Well, why don't YOU try it and find out the answer to that question?

    The worst that will happen is you will be denied the restore to that firmware if you don't have an SHSH on file for it already.

    This isn't rocket science. The slightest bit of research would turn up this information.

    Maybe they are not at a computer where they can try?

    So then it wouldn't matter if they could or not?

    Well, do they hurry home and try to do it? Or just forget about making an extra trip home since it can't be done anyway?

    It's based on what Apple is signing, not what's on your phone. I don't know why the OP didn't want to save the blob. If you've got the blob, you can install that ios anytime you want.
