I'm trying to update my 4.2.1 untethered jailbroken iPad to 5.0 with redsnow with no sucess!
I've downloaded ios 5 to ipad 1, and redsnow 0.9.9b5, I go to extras, select to use custom ipsw select the downloaded ios, then I go to jailbreak, select install cydia, DFU
Process runs and on boot it appears to icon to connect to itunes
I go to extras again select the ipsw and go to boot jailbroken and after that i just got the pineapple in my ipad screen but it don't go further!
if i shut it down and go to DFU and select only jailbreak (not selection the ipsw of ios5) it just boots my 4.2.1 again!
You need to INSTALL iOS5 on your iPad BEFORE you try and jailbreak it. redsn0w does not install the operating system for you, it only jailbreaks it. See my tutorial here - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreaki...g-redsn0w.html
