    ipad 2.2 (GSM model) restored with wifi firmeware, how can I fix it?

    I accidentally restored iPad2,1_5.0.1_9A405_Restore to my GSM (ATT) ipad, how would I be able to get it back to GSM (2.2) based firmware, 5.0.1 or 5.1.1 either is fine. I have shsh blob for both.

    I tried using DFU model flash, it says the 2.2 based firmware is not compatible

    it was my fault, I know it.

    It is not possible for you to flash the wrong IPSW to a device. It cannot be done by accident.

    You either have the wrong file downloaded for your device, a corrupt file downloaded, or you don't have a GSM model iPad2.

    When you go to Settings > General > About - What is the model number half way down?

    If you are sure it is an iPad2 GSM, the file you need for 5.1.1 is here - http://appldnld.apple.com/iOS5.1.1/0...6_Restore.ipsw

    If the message you are actually getting is that the device is not "eligible" that is a completely different thing. That is because you cannot install 5.0.1 due to SHSH Blob restrictions. Whether you have saved blobs or not is not the issue. You can't just try and restore 5.0.1 on an iPad2. It does not work like that. To be able to install 5.0.1 you would need to follow our tutorial here - TUTORIAL - Downgrade your iPad2 or iPad3 using SHSH Blobs and redsn0w (although you would be better advised to go to 5.1.1 and jailbreak that!).

    Hope that helps.
