    Hi guys,

    I'm really hoping someone can help me. I was on 4.3.3 and did the jailbreakme with everything running fine. Stupidly I installed iusers today and after creating a new user I was locked out with no passwords working!

    I thought I could restore by iPad from the iTunes backup but got upgraded to 4.3.4 and i'm hoping my shs blobs got auto saved on Cydia. When I try to restore back to 4.3.3 Ipsw file it won't let me as it checks with Apple server and then I get an error saying failed :(

    Please tell me I ca somehow restore back to 4.3.3 even though I didn't physically save the blobs. I didn't get an option on Cydia and it did say 4.3.3 at the top of of Cydia.

    Can anyone give me some instruction please? I've been searching for a while and can't find anything.

    Many thanks in advance

    Use tiny umbrella and under the advanced tab click the "set hosts to Cydia on exit" and close tiny. Reboot and try again.

    Since Cydia usually autosaves blobs, do what I said. Apple stopped 4.3.3 so what you want to do is impossible.

    Keep it friendly guys. Both methods will work and both methods are just a variation of the same thing.
    Both will work perfectly for the OP based on the information provided.

    - routing hosts to Cydia - OK
    - saving blobs from Cydia to TU and starting TSS Server - OK

    No need to duke it out... :)

    Ok guys, thanks for that. I just checked and do have my blobs for 4.3.3 now saved on my pc from tiny umbrella. How do I restore it to 4.3.3 with this now?

    I will say though that I'm not familiar with tiny umbrella and don't want to screw things like my baseband up. I'd opt for the easiest solution if possible. :)

    Just go to this sticky and follow the directions: http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...815-how-downgrade-your-ipad-ios-firmware.html

    Since you already have your blobs on your PC, you can skip steps 1 through 5. Start with step 6, getting an official version of iOS 4.3.3. Make sure it's the one for your specific iPad.

    The directions from then on are relatively straight-forward (thanks again, Leigh, for creating such awesome tutorials!). However, if you need some help, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Thanks but I'm just trying to restore 4.3.3 and getting a failure error still. Here's what I tried:

    1) I changed TU settings to save all shsh, set hosts to Cydia on exit, request shsh from Cydia and then closed TU and restarted the iPad. Then went back to iTunes to restore 4.3.3 ISPw from iclarified, didn't work.

    2) started tss server on TU , went to iTunes and tried restore same error.

    Is this not the way to do it?

    Any help will ne really appreciated.

    After getting the IPSW file, did you put the iPad in DFU mode - as outlined and mentioned in the sticky?

    Just hold the power and home for 10 sec and release power but keep holding home until iTunes detected the iPad. Easy.
