    Since you've got the iPad1 already jail broken - is there a chance you have the 5.0.1 SHSH blobs for it? Because, if the answer is yes, then you should be able to create and then install a custom 5.0.1 IPSW with redsn0w and then jailbreak it.

    So, first things first - do you have the SHSH blobs?

    If I'm right (and someone will correct me if I'm wrong) there is no current way to upgrade to 5.0.1 because apple quit signing SHSH blobs. If you have blobs saved then yes, you can do what marylin described. But if not no blobs=no update.

    How would I have gotten the blobs? Where would they be? When I start Cydia it shows along the top shsh and a long list of os including 5.0.1 does this mean I have them? How would I have obtained these blobs in the first place and where would they be kept?

    Once you jail broke your iPad, it became an automatic process for Cydia to save your 5.01. SHSH blobs for you. So, this is good news ... that you have them.

    So, follow the steps in this sticky (written by our main Hacking guru, f4780y): TUTORIAL - Downgrade iPad1 to 5.0.1 using SHSH Blobs and redsn0w

    If you follow each step and do the process exactly as written, you should end up with a jail broken iPad on iOS 5.0.1. Good luck and do let us know how you get on.

    Thanks Marilyn,
    I will try this. I decided to DL all the files first and I had a strange issue that I am not sure about. When I downloaded the Ipad 5.0.1 file the file was 847K and I decided to dl another copy to another location as a backup and the second dl file size is 733K. Now all the dl 5.0.1 files are 733K but the first is 847K. Any idea which should be used?

    Did you get them both from here? Are you sure you got exactly the same file?

    I ask because, honestly? I have no clue why they'd be a different size. But, I'd stick with the one you got from here...

    but aint it just to download the 5.0.1 from a site, shift click on restore for the ipad, select the 5.0.1 update from where you downloaded it to and then update it to 5.0.1? cause i used that way to downgrade from 4.2 to 4.0 on my ipod touch 2g. Maby the same way will work for ipad and upgrade?

    Well, it's worth a shot. just search for "ios 5.0.1 ipad 2 download" on google and download the update.

    Then shift click on the restore button when you have the ipad connected, choose 5.0.1 and it may work. But cannot promise anything since i bought my ipad 2 with 5.0.1 preinstalled :/
