ipad 2 5.1.1 restore issue
Hi i'm hoping someone can help me here. I have spent days searching these threads and trying countless efforts to restore my ipad 2. I have a jailbroken Ipad 2 running ios 5.1.1 wifi and 3g i believe GSM. I recently tried to put spire on it and thats when all my problems began, (i know this was silly and i will never do it again) I have searched through the threads and read all the tutorials on how to restore current ios. I have shsh blobs saved from cydia and was trying to use tinyumbrella to restore. I thought i had it but came up with the error 1600. I have tried all combinations of, different cords, different ports, and different computers but always get the same message. I have tried to remove spire using ifunbox but still nothing. My Ipad is stuck on the boot logo. I have entered DFU mode and know how to do all this but still nothing works. I simply dont want to upgrade to ios6 and lose jailbreak capability. I have even tried to use tinycfw but still to no avail. Please is there someone out there who can help. The only thing im not sure of with my Ipad is what baseband it is using.thank you in advance.

This is always going to happen: Apple will release a new iOS and the jail break community will work to jail break it. it's a never-ending cycle that has been since the very first iDevice was sold.

So, when we get a jail break, it's a result of months of hard work and research (finding exploits in sophisticated software is difficult!). So far, we've been lucky that the jail break community has been successful in jailbreaking every major iOS iteration. However, as with stocks, past performance/success is no indication of future success.
There is no way to prepare or set yourself up for success. We can only react to the success of the jail breaking community - accepting whatever they can do. The best thing you can do is cross your fingers in hope that they can find a publishable exploit in iOS 6 so they can release a jail break. Unless, of course, you're a coder with extreme knowledge of iOS. Then, you could offer your services to the jail break community to aid in discovering an iOS 6 jail break - or make your own and thus receive fame (and maybe fortune). :)
Sorry, but that's the way it is. Apple is getting better and better at locking up their iOS to prevent jail breakable exploits (which they see as security risks). It's just the way of it.
So, unfortunately, you'll have to join the rest of us in waiting [patiently] for an s 6 jail break.
