    I can't find a solution to my problem anywhere. I have a jailbroken ipad 3 wifi running ios 5.1 and in cydia it says I have ios 5.1.1 blobs saved. How do I install ios 5.1.1 on my ipad with those blobs saved?

    I always had ios 5.1.1 on my ipad and I jailbroke it and never upgraded. Then I tried to fake my firmware into ios 6 and effed that all up and now my ipad says I'm running ios 5.1 and I really just want to reinstall this firmware. Someone please help. Thanks

    Think you're out of luck. Blobs are useless on any iPad other than the original iPad. If you want to restore, you'll have to go through iTunes and upgrade to the latest signed firmware. iOS 7.1

    You can restore it to iOS 5.1.1 with redsn0w, but only because you have your SHSH blobs for that version. But before you can restore to it, redsn0w will check if they are valid and contain the APT ticket. If they don't contain that ticket, you will not be able to restore to anything but iOS 7.1.
