    Unless you saved your SHSH blobs it's not possible, because Apple are no longer signing 4.3.3. If you have the blobs, you should be OK and there are several threads here that will tell you how to do this. Is your iPad 3G or WiFi-only?

    Thank you Tim but that's the problem, I don't save the shsh and I'm really regret it. Can I use shsh from other person? I feel hopeless.

    OK - no, you can't use anyone else's blobs and also, as far as I know, there's currently no JB anyway for the 3G iPad2 - the current JB is for the WiFi version only. I'm not a JB guy, so hopefully Leigh, our JB guru (who's in the same time zone as me) will come along soon and rescue me...

    He's been posting this morning (f4780y) so I'm sure he'll be here soon.

    But I'm fairly certain that, if you've not saved your blobs, you can't downgrade to 4.3.3 - you'll have to wait for a 4.3.4 JB to become available.

    But sure there is JB for 3G. Only thing is that as of now JB is good only for 4.3.3

    I am sure in few weeks or month, it'll be for 4.3.4 as well

    I truly hate to be the bearer of bad news ... but:

    There is no jailbreak for iOS 4.3.4 for the iPad2. And, according to various twitter posts (and blog posts ... and various web articles), don't expect one soon, if at all. As far as I can tell, the tethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.4 (for the iPad1 only) was more of a nose-thumbing to Apple than anything else. iOS 4.3.4 was just to close the hole found and exploited by c0mex - it adds nothing extra. So, to jailbreak would be a waste of their time, I would guess...

    Of course, all the above is my reasoned opinion based on what I've read - you may reach a different conclusion.

    The gist is: No jailbreak for iPad2s with an iOS higher than 4.3.3 at this time.

    But still, enjoy your iPad! It's not "useless" just because you can't jailbreak it. Oh, but do keep up hope for iOS 5 coming this fall - I have faith in the jail breaking community. We'll see, yeah?

    Sorry Tim. I wasn't around to save you from yourself... :(

    Marilyn to the rescue though :) She' just as knowledgeable and "guru like" as me you know, although I wish you wouldn't introduce us to folks like that... ;)

    For the avoidance of doubt / confusion in the future...

    You cannot DOWNGRADE the iOS on an iPad2 3G as things stand. You can jailbreak them if they are at 4.3.3. Heck, I have one and it is fully JB. But, you can't jailbreak a 4.3.4 iPad2... Clear? As Marilyn pointed out, it's all about the version number of IOS :D

    stir the pot:
    if you asked this yesterday, you might have got lucky, as someone updated to 4.3.4 and was able to downgrade back to 4.3.3, and he didn't even save shsh blobs, till he was told to(by members here). But he had wifi ipad2....
    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/39312-4-3-4-rollback-4-3-3-a.html

    just try your tiny umbrella to save shsh blobs, and see if it magically saves 4.3.3(although we know apple stop signing), worth a try!!!!

    Now what i wanna know is, can those with ipad2 3G's, can you please specify what baseband you have right now, since you have 4.3.4.

    Take the iPad back and get another one that is on4.3.3 if it not very old. I would guess most iPads on the store shelf are at 4.3.3 or lower.
