There are jailbreaks now
Never jail breaked. Original IPAD 1 wth ATT 3G. Never updated. Tried to goto newest and greatest today.
Tried to do it via DFU mode.
So, update iTunes first. Then, try to do a straight upgrade via iTunes.
Good luck and let us know how you get on.
I'm hoping to get some help with my iPad. I'll try to explain my situation the best that I can. Please let me know if you need any other information. I'm new to the iPad world, and I'm trying to help other people with theirs, but I can't even get mine working. :p
iPad 1 - 5.1.0 9B176 (WiFi)
iTunes 10.6.1 (7)
Mac OSX 10.7.3
I got the iPad at 5.1.0. A friend gave it to me after he fixed it up. I then jailbroke it using an untethered jailbreak (I think I used redsn0w). That's where I am now. Since then, I tried to downgrade to 5.0.1 using SHSH blobs. It was a no go. Always got a 1600 error in iTunes, even with pwned DFU mode. Then today, a 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak comes out, so I decide to update to 5.1.1. Won't work in iTunes, won't work on the iPad, won't work in recover, DFU or pwned DFU mode. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to upgrade this thing. Every single time I get some sort of error. In DFU mode, I believe I get a 1600 error, and in normal mode I think iTunes gives me a 20 (21?) error.
I'm sure this has something to do with the jailbreak, but I'm somewhat lost. It's been a while since I've worked on iPod Touches and iPhones, so I'm slightly out of touch. If you can offer any help, I'd be very grateful. :)
Thanks in advance.
i've been having a hardtime for hte past few days trying to restore my iPad via iTunes and then i stumbled upon this site. thanks. :)
i was able to restore it to 5.1.1.
I've followed the steps in this guide exactly and I get an error when trying to restore "This firmware is not compatible.".... I downloaded 5.1.1 from the links repository provided. How can this be resolved?
what does the firmware file look like. what device do you have?Quote:

Good luck, this one cost me a couple of hours on my day off.:(
I'd like to know if this DOES help you?
Trying to restore to latest version 5.1.1 (as at end May 2012). Followed the guide but it failed with the 3194 error. Went back into TinyUmbrella and on the advanced tab, the box which says "Set hosts to Cydia on exit" is UNTICKED, but also it is greyed out and I can't tick/untick it at all. When TU starts it warns me that it is checked, but when I look it appears not to be, and I can't change it anyway.
Any ideas? Running Windows 7 version, iPad 2,1 currently on 5.01 jailbroked with Absinthe.
Ran TU as administrator and it made no difference.
Hope that helps.
