    I am in a very difficult situation.My ipad I have now came with ios 4.3.5.So I said to myself "I won't need these blobs cause why would I want to go back to that anyway."And now I'm in a situation where I want to go back to 5.1.1 but can't cause I don't have the blobs saved from 4.3.5. Is there any way to downgrade on iTunes .and will there ever be a way to downgrade in the future without the ios 4 blobs?

    Why ?

    At some point you will update to iOS6 and have to learn to adapt to the new layout of mobile App Store.

    There will be some app you want that is iOS6 only or some feature in the iOS6 firmware you want.

    As far as I'm aware there isn't a way of downgrading without the blobs.

    You might as well get used to iOS 6 anyway. You can't stay on iOS 5 forever.

    We just have to hope that iOS 7 fixes some of the problems people have found.
