Hi there, my friend, having seen how lovely my iPad 2 is, decided he wanted one but the shop only had the iPad 1 and it's second hand.
No problem there, it has os v4.2.1. I promised I would jailbreak it for him but on reading the destructions, am not entirely sure if I can do it.
I've looked at greenp0ison and the method in this thread. This method seems to me to be the easiest. However, as 4.2.1 is no longer current and he doesn't have any blobs, am I right in thinking it won't be possible?
Also, as it's second hand, I guess it's possible that it might have been jail broken in the past by it's previous owner. If that were the case, does TU recognise blobs according to the device serial number or from another source (hope that makes sense)? If it goes on serial number, would installing TU mean that if any blobs had been saved for that device, they would show up? I am assuming that there will be no way of finding any previous blobs though.
So, what I need to know is can his device be jail broken as it is and also, again, I assume not, but could the os be upgraded to 4.3.3 as opposed to the latest 4.3.4. I ask this purely because the jailbreak for 4.3.3 is so easy and I would rather use that method if at all possible.
Just to clarify, his is iPad 1, wifi and 3G, 32g running os v4.2.1.
I hope I have been clear enough with my questions and provided enough information.
Thank you in advance for any help anybody may be able to offer.
