    Ok I have an iPad 2 I know that it cannot be jailbreak yet I'm just taking steps forward

    But I do have some questions.

    1) even doubt I read a lot on the net I can't understand what shsh blobs are and what are there for

    All I know is that I have to save them before jailbreak.

    So I have to do like

    1) updagrade to official apple iOS version x.x.x
    2) save my blobs
    3) upgrade to custom iOS x.x.x
    Then rest my blobs????



    Thanks and sorry for then question

    Shsh blobs can be saved whether you are jailbroken or not. Apple will only provide them to you for the current firmware version for your device. If you don't have shsh blobs saved for a previous firmware version then you will not be able to revert to that firmware version. You also wouldn't be able to do a restore on your current firmware version if a newer release was available.
    You can save them by using Tinyumbrella, which I would assume would work on the iPad 2. If you are jailbroken you can also save them using Cydia. The advantage of saving them now is if a jailbreak came out that only worked on 4.3.3 became available and you had already upgraded to a future release (like iOS 5).

    Yes it is only for the firmware version. The only one you can save is the most recent firmware version, so you will not be able to restore to an older version you don't have them saved for. You don't need to do anything when you install apps.

    Tinyumbrella checks for older firmwares as well, so it is telling you those are no longer available. If it is the first time you used it then only 4.3.3 will be available. You will be able to restore to 4.3.3 in the future.
    reddead: If you jailbreak and upgrade you will only lose the apps you installed from Cydia. I believe there is something you can buy that will save everything from Cydia (package backup?) but I usually just reinstall my jailbreak apps because there aren't many I use.
