    The iPad 2 has an A5 chip, you can only downgrade with A4 or older.

    Next time buy only from a person that will reset it in front of you while removing it from their icloud account.
    At this point it is only worth parts until you get the information from the RIGHTFUL owner ;) or they remove it from their account.

    You can't down unless you have 4.3 blobs, which I doubt the ex-owner has backed them up.

    Even you downgrade successfully you still need to enter the owner's apple id in order activate and restore a backup
