First of all, I apologize because I'm sure you all have heard similar questions asked a million times.I just bought an iPad 2, and updated it to ios5 immediately after hooking it up to my computer knowing little to nothing about jailbreak. I figured I'd give it a hot, but I learned that jailbreak does not work on ios5 for the new ipad 2. I honestly have no idea what my ipad shipped with, but I'm assuming it probably never had anything but ios 5 on it. Most of the information I have found shows that this is simply not possible without SHSH blobs. However, i tend to be stubborn about these things. But I'm definitely not stubborn enough to risk ruining my ipad. I found this website:http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Firmware and downloaded the 4.3.3 file "iPad2,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw," I have taken my important files off of it and it's ready to be downgraded as soon as I can determine it's safe. forgive my ignorance, but would this work instead of SHSH blobs? I'm using this tutorial but of course it's an older article for ios 5 beta, not the most recent version. So, am I absolutely wasting my time here? And if I decide to go against everyones advice and try it just for the hell of it, will I be stuck with a non-functional iPad?
