    Problem with Ipad 3

    I'm a user from Malaysia.Brought my Ipad3 around 2 month and recently update it to ios 6.0.1.
    Just found out that the back aluminium case of the ipad unbalance.(like a table with a leg shorter)
    What would had caused this problem?is this under warranty??

    Besides that,found out that me and my friend were using the same cellular data but he managed to get 3g connection while i need to roam to get connection>why would this happen as we were in the same location and were using Ipad3??

    Lastly,can ios6.0.1 be downgraded to ios5.1.1 as i found out lots of problem and inconvenience using ios6.

    Thanks,Hope that u guys would help me on this.

    In regards to downgrading; there is currently no way to downgrade the iOS 6.0.1 on your iPad 3 to any version of iOS 5.

    It won't work. Blobs are unique to each device and are not interchangeable. Edit:[Only the most recent IPSW file, for iOS 6, can be downloaded at this time.]

    Problem with Ipad 3

    Just a little clarification:

    The file called IPSW is the firmware (the iOS). You can download it whenever you wish; any version number. The problem comes in when you try to install it. Apple only authorizes the installation of the most current IPSW/iOS. Today, that is iOS 6.0.1.

    SHSH blobs are not the IPSW, but you need them to use jail breaking tools to downgrade, restore or re-restore an iOS version. See here for all you ever wanted to know about SHSH blobs (): SHSH Blobs FAQ

    It is these SHSH blobs that are specific to a device and are not interchangeable amongst devices. They cannot be shared.

    However, none of this matters in your case. Whether you have the SHSH blobs or not - there is currently no way to downgrade an iPad3 running iOS 6.x to iOS 5.1.1. None. Once you moved to iOS 6.x, there was no going back.

    Hope this clarifies.
