Alright, long story short. Lost ipad that was jailbroken, unfortunately it's password locked and only wifi so the find my ipad app is useless.
Finally broke down and got a new one, specifically asked that it be one without ios6 from store, found one that had 5.1 on it.
From what I gather there is no jailbreak out for that yet right? You have to upgrade to 5.1.1, however to do that you need blobs saved and since Apple is not signing 5.1.1 anymore and you can't access any saved blobs I get all sorts of errors in itunes usually 3194 and have tried all the fixes from host file, etc. Hoping someone can clarify that there's indeed no way I can jailbreak so I'll quit wasting time and just patiently wait until one comes out.
