So, I expect to have a refurb iPad3 tomorrow evening, specifically advertised to be running 5.1.1. I have jailbroken my iPad 1 several times, but never after the signing window had closed and without blobs saved. As I understand it, I have one shot at getting things right. If anything chokes, I'm forced to restore to 6.0.1. Assuming that this is the case, is there any advice for giving me the best chance of success, beyond the stickied guides:
The tweaks I plan to install are all well proven on my iPad 1 running 5.1.1, so I'm confident that I won't get hamstrung after I get successfully jailbroken, but first I have to walk the tightrope to get to that point. I appreciate any info that will help get me there. Thanks in advance!
- Absinthe vs. Redsn0w?
- do I transfer my apps, contacts, etc. from my old iPad to the new before I JB, or does it even matter?
- Any other points to consider?
