    Yes you can definitely clean restore and jailbreak. Infact that's what is recommended!

    The latest firmware on iTunes is 4.3.3, and jailbreak me 3.0 only works on 4.3.3 (for now), so go ahead, clean restore in iTunes and jailbreak away! :)

    i was under the impression that 4.3.4 was on itunes [but i haven't checked itunes lately]. but if 4.3.3 is still available, then yes, you can JB, restore back and still have an option to JB again later.

    Thank GOD !

    Now, just to be on safer side, how can i find out ? which FM itune is installing ? b4 i descide to go and restore ?

    I guess 1 way is after connecting ipad , i can check for updates and if it says that 4.3.4 or iOS 5 availabe than i have to think twice.

    Is there another way ? what if apple lie about 4.3.4 ? what if they have already patched Jailbreakme.com but still the FM is called 4.3.3 ?

    yes, you can check for 4.3.4 existence via itunes. no, apple isn't going to masquerade 4.3.4 as 4.3.3

    Until apple releases 4.3.4 update u can freely restore and update all you want. blobs kick in after apple stops signing older firmware that you need restored
