    Hello!

    Is it possible for me to upgrade to 5.1 from 5.0.1?

    I have an iPad 2 jailbroken. Do i need these blobs everybody is talking about?

    Thanks in advanced

    Yes, they are required
    Besides, there is no jailbreak for 5.1

    Well, 5.1.1 then. Is it possible for me to obtain the blobs now? Through cydia or something? And if so, how is it done?:)

    If you dont have the blobs saved locally or on cydias server then there is no way to obtain them now. Its too late.

    I just tried iSH**** and it said that its no longer avalible for signing, so I guess im out of luck, oh well. How dose a tethered jailbreak work when I install tweaks from cydia that requires a reboot? Do i just reboot, then turn it off again and boot with the jailbreak and the tweak is installed?

    There is no tethered jailbreak for an iPad 2 (assuming you are you referring to iOS6) ?
    Sadly, 3 stikes you are out :eek:

    I'm in this same boat. I have 5.0.1 jailbreaked and want to go to 5.1.1 jailbreaked on my ipad 2. I have the blobs saved for 5.1.1 in cydia. Can someone point me to a tutorial?

    That guide just shows you how to jailbreak whatever current firmware you have, not upgrade to a firmware that is no longer being signed and then jailbreak. Got another guide?

    If you cant even find the right tutorial with a link given then you shouldnt even attempt going any further.
    Its going to be too hard.

    If you have been jailbroken in 5.0.1 as you say, Cydia should have said your 5.1.1 blobs. If they are saved, used Redsn0w's re-restore utility to restore to 5.1.1, then jailbreak.
