    Unfortuantly I don't think there is any way to do it. You can only install the latest firmware or older firmwares you have saved SHSH blobs for older versions which you don't have for 4.3.3.

    For now. I'm sure there will be a new jailbreak out not too long after iOS 5 gets it's official release.

    you can upgrade to 4.3.3 since apple is still signing 4.3.3 ... do as he said, download it from there. then in iTunes, restore using that firmware (hold shift when hitting restore, then find the file ... or hold the apple key if on a mac)

    Do this if Apple really is still signing it then it will work and you can jailbreak. The other information I was giving was based on you saying that they stopped signing it. If it's not being signed then you have no way of doing it, but if it's still being signed then is will let you upgrade.

    I think it's the option key not the apple key. But I could be wrong.

    You are currently out of luck. While there is more of a chance that the wifi-only 2 will get jailbroken on 4.3.4 odds are everyone is directing their energy towards iOS5.

    I think that means Apple isn't signing it so you are out of luck until the next jailbreak comes out. Probably for iOS 5.

    Apple is still signing 4.3.3, save your blobs with TinyUmbrella and restore from the TSS server.
