I this week jailbroke my ipad 3 using the absinthe method or a windows computer ( my friends ) the software on the Ipad was and is 5.1.1, I attempted to do this on my mac ( an old powermac with a max Leopard 10.5.6 ) which unfortunately wouldn't work due to the desktop being old so I took my ipad to my friends and did it on his. I carried out all the suggestions ie, backing up prior to jailbreak etc, did the break and then went home. My problem is I don't have the pre jailbreak back up as my friend has removed Itunes from his computer and the only back up I have is one done after jailbreak on my PPC?. How would I restore to factory settings without getting an error code?, although I like my jailbroken ipad I enjoy using Sky Go app and it doesn't work on jailbroken Ipads sadly. I have downloaded 5.1.1 firmware from a site mentioned on another forum. I have noted in Cydia that my blobs are only 6.0.1, as I bought this computer second hand this week and guess that Apple aint signing these now??, is it possible for me to stay on 5.1.1 without having a pre jailbroken back up? thanks in advance.
