    After reading about all the problems after updating to ios5, I'm hesitant to update. Is there something I can do before updating so I could go back to 4.3? I know many of you love ios5 but I'm happy with my ipad the way it is.

    IIRC you cannot do what you want to do without JB.

    Have a look around the iPF Hacking area then...I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for.

    I'll move this thread there (and save a link to the original). You're likely to get a better response that way.

    linsipad if your happy as it is, don't do anything, if you haven't saved your blobs then it's too late to try now. So sit back and enjoy what you have.

    Your not jail broken then updating to iOS 5 won't do you any harm, for now it would be an improvement to what you have.

    The choice is yours, but if you weren't thinking of jail breaking, I'm not sure if your iPad 1 or 2, then the way forward would be to update.....but let's see what others say first.

    Good luck

    Downgrading an iPad and saving SHSH Blobs technically have NOTHING to do with jailbreaking. Anyone who wants to possiblility of downgrading their iPad in the future should have looked into SHSH Blobs. The sad truth is that now it is TOO LATE.
    The tutorial linked above may mention jailbreaking, but it should be quite clear reading it that that is not a pre-requisite.

    The salient point, rendering the whole discussion moot, is this -

    And you won't have SHSH Blobs, so no downgrade. Sorry.

    OK, then once you go to 5.0 you are stuck there. Obviously, you can stay at 4.3 for as long as you choose to yourself though... Its your choice. Just no way back once you upgrade.

    That's not true if the downgrade process is the same as the iPhone. I downgraded from 5.0 to 4.3.5 on my iPhone simply because I needed the Baseband Inorder for my phone to be unlocked using Gevey SIM

    It is absolutely true. An iPad2 is not an iPhone4 and the user stated they have no saved blobs and can therefore never downgrade as things stand.

    You undoubtedly downgraded when 4.3.5 was still being signed if the baseband downgraded. You no doubt followed a tutorial such as this in order to get a gevey SIM working again - http://www.iphoneforums.net/forum/h...ios5-beta-baseband-04-11-08-04-10-01-a-20452/ That is no longer possible either, since the 4.3.5 signing window was closed at 20:00 GMT on 17th October.

    Please check your facts before challenging perfectly accurate advice with inaccurate contradiction. We try very hard here to ensure our members are given the best possible advice regarding jailbreaking their devices, and whilst your contribution is welcome, don't make assumptions about one device behaving just like another, particularly not iPhones and iPads.

    Thanks for the responses. In reading the sticky, it looks like I can only save blobs to current version. Guess I missed the timeframe.

    My mistake. I did say if the process was the same as the iPhone then he may still have had hope.
