    Hi,

    I have downloaded ios 5.1.1 and ios 5.0.1 ipsw files from [Moderator edit: Removed link to other site. We have good download links for firmware IPSWs here at this forum.]
    but error pops up from itunes update and restore option?? Is it necessary to downgrade to ios 4.3.3 to update to ios 5.x.x as jailbreak does not work on ipad2 ios 4.3.5?? Kindly help with this issue..

    Thanks

    I've moved this to the Hacking section where all our jail breakers hang out.

    If you wish to update your iPad2 to iOS 5.1.1, follow the instructions in this tutorial here: TUTORIAL - Failsafe method to restore the current version of IOS

    If the steps are followed exactly as written, you should end up with an iPad on the latest and greatest firmware.

    Now, that version cannot be jail broken at this time. However, if you have saved the SHSH blobs for iOS 5.0.1, then you might be able to use a newly released program to downgrade your iPad2 to iOS 5.0.1. So, if you have saved blobs, see this thread here: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/69625-exciting-shsh-blobs-news-ipad2-ipad3-owners.html

    It talks about the new process and provides guidance on how to do it.

    Hopefully, some of this helps. Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    P.S. I removed the link to the IPSW files in your first post because we have perfectly good links to the software here:*http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/24939-official-apple-ios-firmware-download-links-ipad.html.*
