    I have iPad 2 3G, Version 4.3.3 (8J2), Carrier 10.0, Modem Firmware 04.10.01

    Upon purchase I immediately jail broke it via website and it installs Cydia. I installed some extra programs via Cydia (Python, unix core utils, ssh, sed, grep, etc.)

    Then I decided to free up some space and "removed" programs via Cydia, starting from apt-get, whilst ignoring the warning message.

    Now Cydia has disappeared. Was apt-get part of original iPad OS itself? I would like to clean reinstall cydia.

    I tried jailbreakme website but it says it cannot jailbreak (coz it's already jail broken) I tried manually installing apt-get.deb / curl.deb / cydia.deb (via /private/var/stash ) but I just get errors. So am wondering how to clean install cydia again.. or should I restore the iOS 4.3.3? If I do restore 4.3.3, will I lose my 04.10.01 baseband?

    You can rejailbreak using .. but cydia will forget all updated packages ..

    yes if u restore you will get a new baseband , but nevermind there is no sim lo k on a ipad 2 , but u need to make a costum fw using tinycfw for you ipad than just restore using tinyumbrella .. but make sure you have 4.3.3 blobs !!

    No, jailbreakme website says it can't jailbreak an already jailbroken iPad.


    Too late now. I decided to do a blind restore using iTunes to 5.0.1. But not even that helped! I keep on getting "The iPad "iPad" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (21)."

    My iPad2 is fubared. Throw away in trash.

    You have to restore to original Fw provided by apple on purchase of iPad using your ssh backups 'tiny umbrella' then you can rejailbreak , how do you expect to jailbreak when it's already jailbroken :p. restores your first step
