    Hi guys, gils, and other possible classifications out there,

    I have found here the most comprehensive reply to my problems so far. As the thread opener, I have an iPad 2 with iOS 4.3.2.

    It is crashing all the time. Safari crashes, programs crash, email crashes, even the settings panel crashes. This is kind of new, it was working ok months ago.

    After deciding to restore it to factory firmware 4.3.2 or actually 4.3.X (any X will do for me), I got the dreaded error 3194.

    After reading and trying different options, I finally got to try TinyUmbrella-6.13.00 and get the different error 1600.

    Then finally I get to this page. So here are my questions:

    1 - if I understand it right, there is NO METHOD of reinstalling on my iPad 2 its current iOS version 4.3.2 or any 4.3.X

    2 - the only firmware I can currently install on my iPad 2 is 6.something (current Apple version)

    3 - is there any other way to get my iPad 2 to "factory defaults" to get it to behave properly?

    Thanks for any reply!

    Do you have SHSH blobs for iOS 4.3.x? If yes, you should be able to install iOS 4.3.x. Just let us know that and we'll try to help with that. However, if you don't have the SHSH blobs, then no, you will not be able to put that iOS onto your iPad 2.

    Correct. If you don't have SHSH blobs, then the only iOS you can install is the most current one - 6.1.3 as of this writing.

    Without the blobs, the only way to restore is to restore to iOS 6.1.3 using iTunes.
