    Hi all my name is Laurence and have just bought an iPad 1. I jailbroke it a few months back and love the new functions and themes.

    I have just done my iphone4 using jailbreak me, but did my iPad using greenp0ison, I must admit jailbreakme was very easy, I am running 4.3.3 on my iPhone but only 4.2.1 on my iPad. I have spent several hours trolling through the various threads on google about how to update the pad to 4.3.3.

    So my question is how do I update my iPad to 4.3.3, iTunes want to update to 4.3.4 which I understand will block the jailbreak.

    Any help will be much appreciated, thank you

    Thank you for the warm welcome and for the information, I'm really looking forward to learning the tricks of the iPad.

    I only had my iPhone last September, my very first Apple product, still can't get used to iTunes though, I'm sure you need a degree in advanced maths to use that!

    Anyway thanks again and look i forward to making some new friends on here.

    I'm moving this to the Hacking section, too, where I think it will receive better attention.

    Before you do anything you need to have saved your blobs and within the list must be a file 4.3.3 otherwise it means iTunes has stopped signing, in which case I think it's too late, check out this thread.

    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/39312-4-3-4-rollback-4-3-3-a.html

    You will need to download Your apple IOS firmware from here

    Hope this helps, but you will need to be quick as rumour has it that the dor is being closed!!

    The iOS 4.3.3 door IS closed. So, unless you've already got your SHSH blobs for that firmware, scubalol, you can't use JailbreakMe 3.0 to upgrade and then jailbreak.

    In fact, unless you've saved those blobs, in order to keep your jail break, you can't upgrade from 4.2.1. I'd suggest running Tiny Umbrella - if you're lucky, Cydia (and saurik) has been saving them for you automatically.

    Good luck.

    Buggers, they've finally closed the door.....I wonder how the next jailbreak will work, from what I have read it's very much a different kettle of fish!!

    Ok I downloaded tiny umbrella and tried to find the 4.3.3 file, but its not there sadly. So looks like I am too late, so what can I do now, bearing in mind I don't mind starting from scratch.

    What SHSH blobs do you have saved? What does the tiny print read at the top of the main Cydia screen? Or, what blobs does Tiny Umbrella say you have?

    Hi there,

    Ok the information on Cydia says SHSH: IOS 4.3, 4.3.3

    Now using Tiny, i ticked the box that says request SHSH from Cydia and it downloaded what apears to be 4.3.3, I then booted my device into DFU mode and then went onto itunes to carry out the restore, as the instructions say, I pressed the Shift key whilst clicking restore and another box opened where i was able to find the SHSH i had downloaded.

    However, although I can see the file when looking for it normally, the files dont show up whilst trying to carry out the restore, and pressing Shift.

    These are what the files look like on my PC

    2941264407885-ipad1,1-4.3.3.shsh

    these are the files that Tiny say I have downloaded

    ipad 4.3.3 (8J3)

    I guess I dont have a programme which recognises the SHSH files, and maybe that is why they do not show up.

    Hi, ok i understand and have followed the giude. This is the problem I am now having.

    I download this file

    http://api.viglink.com/api/click?fo...20110503.ScEp3/iPad1,1_4.3.3_8J3_Restore.ipsw

    It comes down as a WinRar file, itunes is asking me to restore, I click shift and restore and it opens a dialogue box where the rar file has been downloaded to, except no file is showing up. Even if i extract all the rar files, it still wont show them when i ask itunes ot find the firmware.

    What am i doing wrong?

    You don't have a problem - just a Windows quirk.

    All you have to do is change the file extension on the RAR file to .ipsw. Then, it should work correctly.

    You can also try using a browser other than IE. :) Chrome or FF don't do this AFAIK.

    Hi Marilyn, so do I need to extract the Rar file or will it run as is?

    Nope, don't extract it. Just take the downloaded file - which should be named exactly the same, except it'll have an ending of .zip - and instead of .zip, just make it .ipsw. It's the same file, just IE mucking with it...

    As f4780y pointed out, it's an IE thing to change it when it downloads. Stooooopid IE! :) [Go, Firefox! :D]

    Ok peeps, it has worked. My iPad is now running 4.3.3. however, it is no longer jailbroken and all of the apps I had have gone.

    However, I did make a backup of the iPad before i started this, and itunes is asking me if i want to set it up as a new ipad or from my backup. Can I assume I can now load my backup onto the ipad and if so should I jailbreak it first, or after the update.

    Thanks for all your wonderful help.

    I have always just put the backup onto the iPad, then do the jailbreak. Because it's such a simple jailbreak [using JailbreakMe.com], it shouldn't make any effect, really.

    To jailbreak it, it's just a simple press of two buttons at that Safari web site. Then, you watch the Cydia icon load onto your home screen. Done!

    From there, the world's your oyster!

    Good luck!
