    Not sure if Apple are still signing the 4.3.3 firmware, but if they are you should save your SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella and also upgrade your iPad to 4.3.3 ASAP. If they've stopped signing 4.3.3 then you may be out of luck.

    You need to download the 4.3.3 ipsw and use that to upgrade and yeah hurry up before apple stops signing it.

    download tiny umbrella asap and save ure blobs. i just did it and it still works. but i got to do it asap.

    then u can upgrade to 4.3.3 later or whenever.

    That's only true for Wi-fi ipads from what I understand, but the OP has a 3G. I'd just upgrade, jailbreak and save the blobs all in one go if I were him, that way all bases will be covered.

    you can still save 4.3.3 for the iPad 2; I did it about half an hour ago using TU and unchecking the "Request SHSH From Cydia". Do it NOW.

    ok so do i simply save my 4.3 with tinyumbrella? And then how do i upgrade to 4.3.3? Do i use tinyumbrella to do this too? THanks!! Do i need the 4.3.3 ipsw?
    i have the 3g+wifi ipad2 if that makes any difference...

    You'll have to download the ispw. Try ipswDownloader for doing this.
    Then open iTunes and press restore while holding down the Shift-Button. Now select the downloaded ipsw and wait....
    After that, just open jailbreakme.com in safari and download Cydia...

    Have fun!

    Not sure if 3G is different than WiFi, but I never upgraded to 4.3.3 and just JB with 4.3 and haven't had any problems. I'd imagine you could just JB with your current firmware (4.3).

    After you save the SHSH w/TU: Everything you need in this page (IPSW & instructions) http://iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=15889 :cool:

    I thought Jailbreakme 3.0 worked on the iPad 2 Wifi running 4.3 - 4.3.3? Only the 3G Ipad2 has to be running 4.3.3.

    According to this compatability chart.

    4.3 will work fine regardless if you have wifi or 3g+wifi
    I have a ipad 2 3g on 4.3 jailbroken and everything works great.

    Is there any possible way to jailbreak an ipad2 wifi 4.3 now?

    I tried going to jailbreakme.com, but it tells me version not supported. I'm thinking of downloading a 4.3.3 ispw and restoring to that, but I'm not sure if that will work.

    Any advice?

    You're to late,
    You will have to wait for iOS 5 to come out now before a Jailbreak can be readily available!

    I don't get it. I Jailbroke my ipad 2 on 4.3 the day the jailbreak was released! What made it able to work on 4.3 then but not now?

    If you JB on 4.3.0 then your blobs should be saved on cydia's servers for 4.3.3 so just use TU to update to 4.3.3 and you should be fine.
