    Hello, I jumped the gun and installed iOS 5 on my iPad and before anyone asks, yes I am a legit developer with a developer account.

    I want to go back to 4.3, is this possible on my iPad 1 WIFI??
    I downloaded a ispw of 4.3 and tried to restore with no luck.

    Any suggestions?

    With a wifi model you should be able to just click alt-restore and point it to the 4.3.3 firmware (which should be under ~/Library/Something/...), without even using DFU mode. Worked fine for me, although I'm on an ipad 2.

    I may be wrong.....

    I may be wrongnbut I did read on the release notes that you can't downgrade..... I assume they mean from iTunes.

    Unfortunately I didn't know about the blog thing until researching how to rollback to 4.anything AFTER I installed 5

    When I attempt to install I get error 1600
