    I have an iPad 2 which I upgraded to iOS6 to try it out, but now I'd like to restore it back to iOS 5.1.1 where I can jailbreak it. I have SHSH blobs on 4.3.3 and 5.1.1.

    The dev-blog have said it's possible:

    Can someone guide me through a way to do it?

    I've tried using Tiny Umbrella and just doing shift-click on the recovery... but that gives a 1600 error; which the way to fix that is by using pwned-DFU, which (using latest version of redsn0w) isn't available yet -- is there a way around this. Thanks

    Funny how you left out the most important parts:

    iPad2 owners who have both 4.x blobs and 5.x blobs will always be able to downgrade to those versions, even once you come up to 6.0 and the 5.1.1 window closes (don’t do that yet though!). *You need both 4.x and 5.x blobs to qualify for the 5.x downgrade even though you only wish to downgrade to 5.x (you need only your 4.x blobs to downgrade to 4.x)

    All of these features will be released shortly in a new version of redsn0w. *In the meantime please be sure you have your 5.1.1 blobs and stay at 5.1.1..
