    Nobody able to downgrade and restore your ios 6.0 to 5.1.1 or 5.1.1 to 5.1.1 if you are having all saved Shsh blobs also.for doing that wait for Redsn0w new version released tomorrow or day-after tomorrow.

    I was gonna create a topic on that...so just let me clear it out:

    My ipad 2 is on 4.3.5 FW and id like to upgrade it top 5.1.1, not 6.0!

    I have all the blobs locally and at cydias server.

    Can I do it right now through ANY available way?

    You should have done your update last week, before iOS 6 was released, it would have saved a lot of grief. Was your iPad ever on iOS 5.1.1? If not, there is no way to upgrade to an iOS that Apple is no longer signing. It's iOS 6 or nothing.

    Oh thank you, but the funny thing is that devteam says the following:

    "iPad2 owners who have both 4.x blobs and 5.x blobs will always be able to downgrade to those versions, even once you come up to 6.0 and the 5.1.1 window closes (don’t do that yet though!). You need both 4.x and 5.x blobs to qualify for the 5.x downgrade even though you only wish to downgrade to 5.x (you need only your 4.x blobs to downgrade to 4.x)"

    In other words, they say its possible but they dont actually say HOW to do it!

    I have the ipad 2, I have all the blobs :/

    A new version of redsn0w will be released to support restoring 5.1.1 if you have the appropriate blobs on iPad2 and iPad3. It has been announced but we have no release date yet. As soon as it is out we will let everyone know and you can expect a couple of tutorials on it too!

    Until then, there is no way to do it, no matter what blobs you have saved.

    Yes, in my case it was on 5.1.1 before, but then I tried to restore it and some stuff failed. Then I had to go back to 4.3.5 and now Id really like to go 5.1.1 all the way.

    I have ALL the blobs!
