    Newbie here and lost about upgrading os

    Hi,

    I'm Gar, I'm a non techie guy that owns an I pad. I'm not sure where to post this query that I have in mind. And will appreciate if anyone can direct me to the proper forum or answer the question directly.

    I have an iPad 1st gen running on iOS 4.2.1. I missed th updates from apple to upgrade the os to 4.3.3 and I want to upgrade my iPad to that particular version. (my iPad is not jail broken).

    Can I download the 4.3.3 Ipsw and restore using the downloaded file via iTunes?

    Don't just update, as it will only update to the latest version that Apple is signing...4.3.5 I think.
    To get what you want 4.3.3, you would have had to save your blobs on tiny umbrella.
    Use Search to find out about this.

    NEWBIE lost in upgrading IOS

    What is a blob?

    sorry the idea sounds so foreign to me.

    I don't want 4.3.5 as what the message i see from iTunes this morning thats why i'm looking for a quickie action for the upgrade (unofficial) to 4.3.3

    thank you The Rambler and Dom for the quick replies

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but if you don't have SHSH blobs saved for iOS version 4.3.3, you cannot load/use that version on your iPad.

    There simply is no way.

    Hi Marilyn,

    I saw your post here:

    net/ipad-hacking/32983-4-2-1-4-3-3-jailbreak-sn0wbreeze-redsn0w

    Was it done possible because your iPad was previously updated with IOS 4.3.3 or because it was jailbroken?

    If i jailbreak my unit, would it be possible?

    Thank you for your assistance.

    An iPad2 can only be jailbroken if it's on iOS 4.3.3. If you're on an earlier version of iOS it is not possible to upgrade to this version because the current version is 4.3.5 and Apple won't allow upgrades to earlier versions.

    OK - then there's a tethered JB for iOS 4.3.5 - but tethered only and only for the iPad1.
