    I'm new to the whole jail breaking arena, and came from/still have android development stuffs. So it's rather odd this whole blob thing. But I understand it.
    I really can't tell from your post what version of firmware you have (and do you have one or two iPads?).

    However and regardless, my recommendation is to do nothing at this time. A jail breaker's best course of action, especially if there is news of an impending jail break is to sit still, hang tight and wait. One should never upgrade to any firmware on their own unless that version of firmware has been proven to be jail breakable.

    Once the jail break is released, that's the time to make a decision on what to do.

    So, hang in there! And, if you have that stooooopid red badge sitting on your Settings icon, just learn to love it. When I was waiting for the jail break on the iPhone 4S, I adopted my red dot and called it Bob. This one on my iPad3? His name is George!

    We wait....

    I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong. But the SHSH blobs are specific to each individual unit. Unless you saved them while Apple was still signing 5.01 then you're out of luck. Good thing is that it sounds like a JailBreak for 5.1.1 will be released tomorrow (if not tomorrow, real soon) then you can just upgrade to 5.1.1 and jailbreak that. You should save your blobs for 5.1 and 5.1.1 now before Apple releases a new version and stops signing these. There should be instructions in the first couple of posts in this thread telling you how to save the blobs for your unit.

    It appears this forum has not had a post in a while. Hopefully someone will see this who can answer my questions. I have tried to compile as much knowledge as I could before I posted my question. I have read the "Jailbreaking Explained," "Jailbreaking Methods," and this sticky but I just wanted a quick confirmation of some information. I'll try to give as much as I know and please let me know if I am wrong in any area. I recently bought a used iPad 1 (64 GB, wifi if that matters). I don't know it's iOS/jailbreaking history prior to my purchase. It is not currently jailbroken and it is running iOS 5.1.1. I plan to jailbreak using the Absinthe method. I have read a few places that it is usually the easiest method for users who are not that technically savvy. I don't entirely understand the blobs, do I need to try to save them before I jailbreak or after? As I said, I just bought it and am unaware of its prior history. Do blobs only enable me to go back to previous versions, or would I also not be able to update should say 5.1.2 (or another newer update) become available? I am really only planning on jailbreaking for one app, so if I would be putting myself at risk as far as keeping my iPad up to date, it might not be worth it for me. And again, if I have made wrong assumptions in anything I've posted, please let me know. Thanks for any and all help! Matt

    Saving blobs are an entirely different process from jailbreaking. Which is to say - you can save them before or after you jailbreak, it does not matter. See this tutorial on saving blobs with Tiny Umbrella: HOW TO - Save your SHSH Blobs with TinyUmbrella. Who knows - when you go to save the SHSH blobs for iOS 5.1.1, you might find the iPad has been jail broken before, and thus prior iOS blobs might be available...

    Blobs are used so you can go to an iOS version not being signed by Apple (this can be up or down in version numbers). The key is that, without blobs, you can only install the iOS version currently being signed by Apple. So, once an upgrade iOS is released, you can go to the upgrade, you won't need blobs to do so (as Apple is signing their new release). The only reason people don't upgrade is because there usually is no jail break for the newest version. So, people wait...

    Although, with an iPad1, I would be very surprised if Apple released any more versions. Which would make it so that Apple will continue to sign iOS 5.1.1 for iPad1s. Regardless, you can always save the SHSH blobs for the iOS being supported by Apple (which is 5.1.1 today). Basically, with iOS 5.1.1, your iPad1 is going to be as up-to-date as it will ever get.

    Hope this clarifies.

    Hi there.
    I think this is the right place to ask this question relating to SHSH Blob, so here goes.

    My iPad 2 was only today updated from the previous Vers 5 OS to the latest Vers 6.

    While still on the Vers 5, I saved the SHSH blob using the latest previous version of Tiny Umbrella. In the tutorial for Tiny Umbrella it was suggested that the user update to the latest version of TU before doing a save of the latest OS version's SHSH .

    I have downloaded the latest version and I am ready to install TU Vers6. However, I CANNOT find anywhere in the TU instructions advising me as to whether I should uninstall the previous version of TU installed upon my PC or simply install the latest TU over the top of the previous versiion.

    And when I eventually use the latest version of TU, will my previously saved SHSH made under the earlier TU version still be saved and readily accessable?

    Regards
    May the "Farce" be with you!

    iPad 2, Vers 7.1 (11D167), 3G + Wi-Fi, 64 Gig.
