    Hello all,

    i'm new to jailbreaking and have had an ipad 2 for about a year now,
    Specifics: iPad 2, 16GB, WiFi, Version: 5.1 (9B176)
    Laptop: HP Pavilion, Vista

    i'd like to jailbreak my device but need some help to get started,
    i google'd how to do it, but the stuff that keeps popping up is usually for the newest devices & updates.

    if theirs anybody that wants to help me out feel free to contact me.

    The above information is incorrect. Do not try this or you may leave your iPad2 unable to boot !

    There is no jailbreak for 5.1 firmware and until new jailbreak tools are released, you cannot change the firmware on your iPad2.

    Have you ever saved any hashes ?

    Whoops. I just figured that since it was an earlier version of iOS that it would have been jailbroken by now. Sorry

    No blobs/hashes, no firmware. Check to see if they were saved by chance for 5.0.1 or 5.1.1.

    The new tools, I would ESTIMATE, will be released in January.

    download TinyUmbrella

    connect ipad

    open TU and hit save SHSH, make sure in the advanced tab that get SHSH from Cydia is uncheked.

    My guess is you won't find any blobs, you are to late.

    Even with having saved the hashes for 5.0.1 or 5.1.1, it will not be possible to advance or downgrade the firmware on an iPad2 except to iOS6.

    Read #2 and #3 on this blogpost

    I have read a couple posts (but only a couple) claiming it does...

    Not willing to risk my iPad2 current setup, I am unwilling to test it.

    So, I am skeptical :cool:
