I got my iPad 2 couple of days ago and it's used one. I would like to "clean" it totally after the seller. What is the best way to do that? There is ios 5.0.1 it it and it's jailbreaked. I was thinking the restore option (I think that is the term for it?) to put a fresh ios 5.0.1 again and still having the jailbreak, but am I right it is not possible? I have the shsh blobs for couple of 4.x.x, 5.0.1 and 5.1. Removing the jailbreak is not an option.
I checked out the tutorial section, google, search etc, but I am still not sure about this. Any tips?
You cannot restore that iPad2 and keep the jail break. Restoring the iPad2 will mean that you will have to load iOS 5.1 on it, which is not jail breakable (yet) for the iPad2.

Having the SHSH blobs makes no difference, for the iPad2, at this point. The members of the Jailbreaking community have not figured out how to use them ... yet.
So, your best bet is to just delete the stuff off it that you don't want or make the account changes to reflect yours.
Sorry, but for now, that's all you can do and preserve that jail break.
Big thanks for your quick reply and making things clear for me. :)
