    Hi, I have an Ipad 2 64gb, wifi and 3g with model MC984ZP white… Unluckily, I updated it to ios 6.0 and its not a good update (suck! I think). I tried to downgrade it to 5.1.1 with the newest itune but.. I dont know what kind of my ipad is ? 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 or 2.4 ???!? More, I tried with all the versions and Itune accepted only the 2.2.. But at last, juz after extracting step, a popup failure said i cant restore it ? Why ? Now Im really stuck with ios 6, games are gone, my utube and ggmaps lovely is terminated.. Apple so cruel ! I juz wish i could downgrade it to 5.1.1 or lower, any version but not the new one ! Plz, if any one know this, give me an advice or juz a comment ! I really need forums help now ! Thanks for all !

    you cannot downgrade. it's impossible, as apple don't sign 5.1.1 anymore. you have to live with ios 6 or wait for an update, nothing you can do.

    Really ? Last time i read the intruction of downgrading firmware, it said apple still sign in 5.1.1 ? When did they stop signing it ? And, as i describe my ipad above, how can i know the type of it ? I mean 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4 ? How to know it ?:confused:… err, if the ios 6 so stupid (i think), will the jailbreak team break its jail this time ? If yes, any1 can guess the time they finish ??? :rolleyes:

    They have stopped now i think but you needed to sign BEFORE you updated to iOS 6.

    Did you ever jailbreak your iPad in the past?
