I've got a non-jailbroken iPad 1 running 4.2.1. Since I'm finding more and more apps that need at least 4.3, I decided that I should try the iOS5 upgrade. However, I've heard all sorts of REALLY bad reports about iOS 5 trashing the performance of the iPad 1. Some people say it works, some say the upgrade does not work.
So I'd really like a fallback position.
Could someone please verify I have all my ducks lined up in order to back out iOS 5 and restore to 4.2.1?
- iPad backed up in iTunes 11.0
- ran iFaith to dump 4.2.1 SHSH blobs.
- downloaded iPad 1 4.2.1 Restore ipsw.
This procedure will get my iPad exactly the way I had it before with all my apps, etc?
Thanks for any help or advice.
