Hi, can someone confirm if Apple is still signing iOS 4.1 for the iPad 1 (WiFi ver) ?
I'm asking about since after made some research around June it was being signed for the iPhone 3GS.

I want to downgrade from 5.1.1 because of the speed and performance back to iOS 4.1.

let me know if do you know anything about.

Thanks

In this case there's no way out to downgarde back to any iOS 4 right? do you know if Apple is still signing any older version of iOS for the iPad 1?

I don't have any shsh saved for any previous iOS than 5.1.

Apple is not signing anything for the iPad 1 other than 5.1.1. Unless you have your SHSH blobs, you cannot downgrade.

Ok thanks for clear me on that. I'll try to make a fresh restore to see if may improve a little bit.

You can downgrade

I just downgraded my iPad 1st gen from iOS 5.1.1 to iOS 4.3.3. I was in the same situation as you no saved SHSH blobs. But it can be done! My iPad runs so much smoother now. I'll help you in anyway I can.

SHSH blobs for the first generation iPad are required for any iOS version. No exceptions. Yours were somewhere.

Stop spreading bad and wrong information.
Just because you dont know any better dont go around trying to full others. What you claim cannot be done period.

Steps that I used to downgrade my iOS device without saved SHSH Blobs

This is to Restore an iPad 1st Gen from iOS 5.1.1 to iOS 4.3.3
First you will need to download four items.

Step 1
1) sn0wbreeze-v2.7.3 (I know that the newest version will work but this is the version I used when doing this.)
2) iPad1,1_4.3.3_8J3_Restore (or what ever device you are trying to restore)
3) iTunes (The current version will work)
4) Tiny Umbrella (To save SHSH Blobs once you are done downgrading)

Step 2
Make sure you add this line to your hosts file
74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com

Step 3
Run the Sn0wBreeze.exe. Hit Ok and then Close Credits button. and then hit the next button.

Step 4
Either drag & drop the iOS 4.3.3 firmware file in the given box or hit the Browse button and select the iOS 4.3.3 IPSW file for your iDevice.
Sn0wBreeze will identify the IPSW firmware file. When done, hit the next button.

Step 5
Select the Expert Mode, Hit next button, then select General and hit Next.

Step 6
Now select the Build IPSW option and hit next.
Sn0wBreeze will start building custom firmware to jailbreak your iDevice. Since the building process takes several minutes to complete, you can either choose to play PacMan or stick with the Spinner.

Once Done! Hit the OK button. (Custom firmware can be found on desktop)

Step 7
Now follow the Sn0wbreeze instructions to put your iDevices into Pwned State. Sn0wBreeze instructions are important to follow because this will put iDevice into Pwned DFU state NOT the simple DFU mode.
Hold Power + Home buttons for 10 seconds
Now release the Power button but keep holding the Home button for 10-30 more seconds
Your device should now be in DFU mode

Sn0wBreeze will prompt you once you’re into Pwned DFU state.

Step 8
Now open iTunes, Hold down the Shift/Option key and hit the Restore button.
Browse and select the custom firmware that we just created, from the desktop.

iTunes will start restoring iOS 4.3.3 on your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch/Apple TV 2G. Once done, your iPhone, ipad or iPod Touch will be running iOS 4.3.3 jailbroken untethered.

Step 9
Once your iDevice comes back up you will notice that it is a jailbroken 4.3.3
Open Tiny Umbrella go ahead and save your SHSH Blobs(For future downgrades if needed.)

Step 10
After you have saved your SHSH Blobs you will now restore your iDevice again. This time using the IPSW 4.3.3 that you downloaded at the beginning. Your will now restore to an unjailbroken iOS 4.3.3

I can provide links if needed.

See this step here?

Step 2
Make sure you add this line to your hosts file
74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
This points iTunes to Cydia. This means your SHSH blobs were on file there and already existed. Your instructions will not work for other people unless their SHSH blobs are on file with Cydia as well. Like Applejuiced said, it cannot be done without signed SHSH blobs. You just happened to get yours from Cydia's on file ones.

I have done this on two different iPad's that have never been jailbroken. Also my iPad came with iOS 5.0 on it. Did either one of you even try doing this before posting?

iPads don't need to be jailbroken to have their SHSH blobs on file with Cydia. Applejuiced and myself don't need to try this because we know exactly what happens. Step 2 is crucial, because that's where the SHSH blobs come from.

I am sure we've jailbreaking longer than you and we know how things work more than you do. We do not need to try it because your 'instructions' has already proven yourself as a clueless person.
