    I just got my ipad, first generation. It is 64gb 3g wifi. It has ios5 on it. Can I use the blobs from my jailbroken iphone 4 to downgrade the ipad by syncing to the computer? Forgive me but I am new at this. Thanks...

    No. If you could use blobs from another device the whole thing would be worthless, wouldn't it? We could all just share one set of blobs...
    See our FAQ here - SHSH Blobs - Frequently Asked Questions - UPDATED

    You are out of luck. Your only JB option today is a tethered IOS5 jailbreak using redsn0w - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreaki...g-redsn0w.html

    Hi there, you really do need to read the tutorials, no blobs means you can either stay where you are or upgrade to iOS 5, it matters not what version iPad you have.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Do you have shsh blobs saved for 4.3.3 if not there is no way to downgrade.

    Sorry for bringing this thread back...Just wanted to say Thanks to the OP for this guide! I successfully downgraded my original ipad from 5.0 back to 4.2.1. IOS 5.0 kept on crashing due to low memory and made it unusable. Now I'm back on 4.2.1 with no crashes. Thanks again OP.

    Can't the blobs be faked?

    So what is in the SHSH blobs? Why can't they be faked?

    Hey guys, just registered. I'm interested in jail breaking my ipad 1 to keep it running smoothly and securley. iOS 5 has issues with the limited ram, so I'm thinking about downgrading to iOS 4. Only problem is that I've read that it means I'm more susceptible to SSL attacks. Are there security tweaks to help prevent this? Thanks.
