So I got an iPad (1), 64GB WiFi+3G(GSM, Germany), as refurb from Apple, delivered with iOS 4.3.5. Logically, I don't have any SHSHs for 4.3.3 to which I'd like to downgrade, but there are a few dozen - essentially the same - guides out there, telling it's possible to do without the SHSH (for example, this one). I did exactly as told in this/these guide, problem is, it didn't for me where it seems to have worked for others. In the linked guide, I usually get Error 20 on step 5/6, so I disabled anything firewall/antivirus. No change. Sometimes I get error 3194 instead, Windows telling me the "this device could be faster on USB2.0" (or something like that) and then failing. So the question is, are all these guides lying and it's not possible without SHSH even if they tell so, or is the girl doing something wrong? For what it's worth, I've done all that with the applications versions described, didn't try newer ones and I've done this on Windows 7, since I didn't want to clutter my Macbook with software I might not need (often) in the future. Thanks for you help, guys, jenny Edit, just to note, downgrade to tethered 4.3.4 worked.
