    Hey I have a 4s and iPad 2. I was able to successfully upgrade my firmware to 5.1.1 and then downgrade to 5.0.1.

    Redsn0w does a great job at downgrading and restoring but a not so nice job in jail breaking. I ran into the service not available error message on both my 4s and iPad2. A few times redsn0w read my phone as on 5.1.1 even though it wasn't.

    My advice is to restore/downgrade with redsnow and use absinthe to perform the actual jailbreak. I used absinthe only once without any issues.

    Any of you guys have an issue with jail breaking the correctly on the first try???

    It is great but it doesn't work on CDMA or GSM iPad 2 apparently.

    Definitely not on CDMA because I tried! And I do have my blobs saved. Hope they get a fix soon.
