    I have a new iPad 2 that I just purchased. I've jailbroken other iOS devices in the past but am having some issues.

    It came preloaded with 4.3.5, which I know is not able to be jailbroken. However, I've been trying to downgrade to 4.3.3 but haven't had much luck. I repointed my hosts file to saurik's server, but am still getting an error 3194 which means the update isn't valid for my device.

    I can ping gs.apple.com and it resolves saurik's ip.

    What could I be missing? I think I might need to register my device with saurik's signing server somehow.

    Since your iPad came with 4.3.5 Preinstalled, u didn't have a chance to save your 4.3.3's SHSH Blobs. To downgrade to a particular version, u need exactly the same version's SHSH blob.

    So in short there is no way for you to go back to 4.3.3. :(

    All u can do is tethered jaibreak on 4.3.5..

    How do you make a tethered jailbreak on iPad2? Can you share the steps?

    I haven't seen anyone saying that it's working on iPad2.

    As far as I know, tethered jailbreak is only possible with iPad 1. With iPad 2, if you have 4.3.4 or 4.3.5 and you do not have your SHSH Blob saved, then you are out of luck. There is no way to downgrade/jailbreak, yet!
