Hello guys and thank you for this wonderful forum! I just got my new iPad 3 32gb wi-fi and am generally new to iOS (been using android and man I feel great now..). Here is what I would kindly ask you to inform me about:
- iPad came with ios 5.1.1 out of the box
- I read that I cannot update to 6.1.2 anymore (also tried it, but iTunes gives error ofc)
- Now, if I want to jailbreak, I need to do it using Absinthe and with my current 5.1.1 firmware (there are no other methods, right?). My question is though - since Apple is no longer signing old firmwares, lets say I get one of those issues while trying to jailbreak - it fails for some reason...- and I try to restore to original firmware with iTunes in order to attempt the jailbreak again afterward- will iTunes let me restore at all? I mean it didn't let me restore to 6.1.2, will it let me restore to my current and old 5.1.1 firmware? Or do I need to reset factory settings in this case?
I realize my question might sound a bit stupid and I did read through alot of posts, but I am still a bit confused. Thanks in advance for your time and any answers, I really appreciate it
