    I got ipad 1gen 3G 32gb where 5.1.1.(9B206) is on in.

    TinyUmbrella shows those SHSH blobs:
    4.2.1 (8C148)
    4.3 (8F190)
    5.0.1 (9A405)
    5.1.1. (9B206)

    I would like to downgrade to as lowest as possible firmware because 5.1.1. is way too slow.

    I downloaded iPad1,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore from and by redsn0w I used Extras-SHSH blobs - Stitch - chose my 4.2.1 IPSW and from Blobs - remote.

    It went ok.

    I entered iPad into DFU,
    closed iTunes, changed in private/etc/hosts last line by writing in the bottom line

    open Itunes and choose my compiled ipsw file

    and problems began...

    I couldn't wake iPad up.

    On display there was a picture of cable connecting to iTunes.

    I read that this might by 1015 problem so I tried to used:
    redsn0w - recovery fix but it didn't work. It couldn't enter into DFU mode
    tinyubrella - the same
    RecBoot - the same
    iReb - the same

    than I recovered it by iTunes again to 5.1.1 and did it over again with one by one firmware I have SHSH for, always the same error.

    I tried to put # before and but in vain

    what do I do wrong?

    is it possible that ipws is corect and I can't wake iPad up?

    is there any other newer saurik's server ip avaiable?

    please help

    Because it has a baseband (3G) I believe you must run TinyUmbrella as well as the downgrade tool (Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze) during the downgrade to fix the baseband.

    I'm sure has a tutorial.
