Using Absinthe 2, I've jailbroken my iPad 3 iOS 5.1.1.
While uninstalling some packages, I've lost the Cydia (i tried searching and Cydia is completely gone)
After some browsing I've learned that the best way to get the Cydia back is to restore to the original 5.1.1 and re-jailbreak the iPad.
I'm stuck at restoring the original 5.1.1 after putting the iPad to the DFU mode, I've tried to restore with the original 5.1.1 firmware using shift+restore to no avail. I kept on getting the 3164 error.
I searched and I found out that I should be unblocking the gs.apple.com at the hosts file. I was skeptical due to the fact that the 5.1.1 signing window has been closed for a while..... So I tried leaving the TinyUmbrella on as well. Well, that didn't work either. Now I get 1600 error....
I would appreciate some help/direction.
Again, the objective is to get from my Jailbroken iOS 5.1.1 Ipad 3 w/ Missing Cydia back to jailbroken iOS 5.1.1 w/ workin cydia.
Thanks for all your help in advance.
