Version 4.3 killed my iPad. Does anyone know how to downgrade?
You can't unless your iPad was jailbroken. Apple only signs the latest versions.
You should be able to restore from a previous backup. Just hang in there for a couple of weeks and Apple will come out with another update that address the issues.
Restoring from backup doesn't roll back the firmware. I'm afraid the OP is stuck with 4.3 unless he saved the SHSH. And please don't ask "What is SHSH?" If you don't know, you haven't saved it, and therefore you can't downgrade.
But, everyone should save their SHSH for precisely this situation. Google TinyUmbrella to find out how. You don't have to jailbreak to do this, so just do it!
iOS 4.3 works perfectly on original iPad.
Can you elaborate on your isssues with 4.3?
I hope you learned your lesson not to jailbreak.
No problems here....no jailbreak though.
Don't tell anyone to ssssshhhhh it's not polite!
More likely you killed your iPad. Nothing wrong with 4.3.
So what exactly did 4.3 do to your iPad?
I am having two issues which are unrelated to each other.
My first is apps randomly closing since the upgrade to 4.3. I do not think this is an Apple issue though. It may be more of an app that has not been tested and updated to support the 4.3 iOS. I have not done extensive investigations on this, but just my initial thought.
My second issue is that some apps run very slow since I added my company Exchange account to it. Again, I'm not sure if this is specifically an Apple iOS issue or if it a hardware limitation of my iPad 1 and memory.
If it has worked before, and stopped working after you upgraded to 4.3 it sure is an Apple issue. I don't like all that non-backwards compatibility going on with small upgrades nowadays.. I understand that main-versions (iOS 2, iOS 3, iOS 4 etc.) may introduce some compatibility problems.. But 4.x etc. shouldn't, and Apple should ensure that they're not braking any apps with such updates.
Get a Xoom and you won't have any issues
You say that as if the apps themselves couldn't have been programmed poorly to handle upgrades. Not saying that's the case, but if an app developer used some unconventional tricks or what have you in how they programmed an app, even a minor upgrade very well could break it.
I think alot of 4.3 problems were related to the upgrade process corrupting somehing. I had a few issues, but solved them...
* go to Settings / Reset / Reset All : that fixed my problems.
* contact the App developer. They probably have troubleshooting tips.
* delete the problematic App on your iPad and also on your computer. Redownload a new copy (its free) from App store. This also can fix the 'you update an App and it crashes on launch' annoyance.
* more drastic: Erase all and reinstall the IOS.
For the Exchange email issue: try deleting the acct, and then re-add...
Rotation lock switch back=4.3 rules
Unless you tell us what is wrong it looks like USER INDUCED ERROR!
I have no issues with 4.3. My iPad classic has been just as stable and fast on 4.3 as 4.2.
As with the others stated unless you saved the SHSH, you cannot go back.
Glad to know. I'm about to upgrade mine today.
Think I would be fine Updating from my iPad 2's Backup?
You have certain period of time to downgrade . . .
I noticed a lot faster battery drain on all our iOS devices.
iPad2 (still testing this one)
Definitely noted it on the 3GS. No real difference on iPhone 4.
My 3GS has a much shorter life after 4.3. Harder to tell with the iPad.
