Decision time - on the verge of getting full refund from Apple due to iOS5
Long story short, folks. I had 4.3.3 and I was very happy. Battery life was incredible.
I had lots of clutter and orphan data that was clogging up the system so I wanted to reformat.
iTunes went into a 1611 loop, so I had to take the unit to Apple store. They updated to iOS 5.
Against my will.
Now, I have limitations imposed that were not there before, I have services that I don't want, and I have software that I PAID for which cannot function exactly as it used to. Developers have replied to my complaints with disclosure that Apple has imposed certain OS-side limitations that prevent their software from doing what it did when I purchased it.
Lastly, my battery longevity has decreased dramatically.
I am on the verge of a full refund from Apple for the iPad purchase price.
This isn't really my ideal solution... I would very much like to get back to 4.3.3.
Apple rep told me that although they do not advocate this, there are 3rd party facilities that can revert my OS.
Can anyone refer me to a product that can revert my iPad2 to OS 4.3.3? Is it at all possible? I do not care what it does to my warranty, and I don't care about wiping all data, I can put back what I need.
If this is impossible, I'm going to end up getting a refund from Apple, turning in my device, and finding an Android device that does not impose OS changes on me against my will.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
