    WARNING! RetinaPad NOT Compatible With iPad3!

    UPDATE: RetinaPad has been updated (v1.3.4) and is now iPad3 compatible.

    If you manage to get RetinaPad installed on your iPad3, it will muck it up and you will have to do a restore to get your freshly jail broken iPad3 working all better. Uninstalling RetinaPad will not help...

    Trust me on this and take my word on it. Don't do it!

    Oh, and please, don't ask me how I know.

    P.S. Ah, the things I do for the team!

    Gosh, Marilyn--I would have been besides myself if that happened to me!

    Glad that you got it sorted--and thanks for taking one for the team! :-)

    I have RetinaPad on my iPad2 5.1.1 and it hasn't caused me any problems, so it should be safe for iPad2.

    Why would anyone try to install retina pad on the iPad 3? It automatically displays iPhone retina content.

    Ya I don't see the point of retina pad on the iPad 3. Seems redundant.

    RetinaPad Ipad3 installed

    I installed RetinaPad on Ipad 3 with absinthe 2.0 ipad 3 5.1.1 ATT, oops.
    I am having trouble restoring to 5.1.1 with itunes, it says the server cannot be contacted, and tried importing my own ipsw in itunes to 5.1.1 but it won't work, any ideas? Thanks!

    I've been having issues with safari crashing, invisible status bar, no battery icon, can't delete email etc... please help!

    Did you try the DFU Mode and shift/restore method to restore the iPad back to iOS 5.1.1? I used an iOS 5.1.1 IPSW I already had downloaded (didn't go through iTunes) and then used the method as described in this link: TUTORIAL - Failsafe method to restore the current version of IOS

    Essentially, you'll have to start over from scratch: restore the iPad to 5.1.1 and re-run Absinthe.

    Keep us posted. And, sorry you got caught up in this too. Who knew...!?
