    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.
