    Alright. 3.2.2. Old. But anyway, download redsnow (Windows https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-dev.com/files/home/redsn0w_win_0.9.6rc8.zip?attredirects=0&d=1 and Mac https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-dev.com/files/home/redsn0w_mac_0.9.6rc8.zip?attredirects=0&d=1) and follow the instructions in redsnow. You will need your firmware. On windows it is located in Vista C:\Users\Your User Name Here\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPad Software Updates
    And xp C:\Documents and Settings\Your User Name Here\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPad Software Updates\ and on a Mac yourusername/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates
    Redsnow will ask for the firmware. Browse and find it. Then follow redsnow. Cydia will appear on your home screen. You need Cydia to install hacks and tweaks. As for tethered and untethered, tethered means that you will have to use redsnow every time you want to reboot or you run out of battery. But the jailbreak for 3.2.2 is untethered meaning you don't need your computer to reboot. The jailbreak for 4.2.1 is currently tethered but the untethered will be coming out soon. If you have anymore questions let me know! Have fun!

    You can jailbreak 3.2.2 a little easier than described above using either greenpois0n or limera1n... It will be untetered.

    Image? Do you mean you backed up your iPad with iTunes? That has nothing to do with firmware. You need to downgrade if you don't want to deal with a tethered jailbreak. But you can't downgrade without something called shsh blobs. But apple stopped allowing shsh blobs for 3.2.2 so if you didn't save them with tiny umbrella (another hacking program) then tuff luck. You either wait until the untethered or deal with tethered. I don't know what you mean about the image though.

    hey, if you can find a 3.2.2 ipsw file on the interwebs you can control-click the "restore" button in iTunes and it will ask you to navigate to a custom firmware file (that ipsw) and you can restore that way

    ...or can you now 'downgrade' ? honestly I can't remember, but I think you can do that


    but, if you can't downgrade, then just get redsn0w beta 3 or 4 and you can jailbreak tethered, it isn't that big a deal and takes like 2 minutes + how often do you reboot anyway?

    if you can downgrade then you can get greenpoison and jb untethered anyway

    cheers and post back with progress/questions/concerns

    If you do the shift restore then when iTunes verifies the restore with apple, apple won't approve it. Or at least in theory.
