    Hey everybody !

    I bought my iPad 2 a month ago and its version is 4.3.5 from the first day !
    I can't save my SHSH blobs by tiny umbrella so I guess I can't downgrade it to 4.3.3
    I've read in a few blogs that jailbreak of 4.3.5 will never come out.

    So what should I do now ? Should I upgrade my device to 5.0.1 and wait for its untethered jailbreak ? Or (If any luck) wait for the jailbreak of my current version ?

    Waiting for reply
    Thanks.

    Given that you can't save any SHSH blobs for lower versions, and, that I think the focus is on jail breaking iOS 5 (no more looking at iOS 4.x), I think your best bet is to upgrade to iOS 5.0.1.

    But that's just me. We can't tell you which jail break will be releases. Although, the "word on the street" is that "they" are close to a jailbreak on iOS 5.x, but there's no talk about iOS 4.3.5. So, take that into consideration.

    Good luck in your decision.

    Thanks Marilyn for your view.
    I am a total noob so I don't have any idea about what to do :D
    I am thinking about upgrading it to 5.0.1.
    What if I upgrade to 5.0.1 and tethered jailbreak(I'm too impatient) it, then can I untethered jailbreak it if it releases ?

    The tethered jailbreak is only available for iPad 1 right now. But there is talk about an untethered jailbreak for all iDevices soon.

    i currently have an ipad2 with 4.3.5 and didnt save my shsh blobs. Am i right in thinking that shsh blobs would be irrelevant for ios5? I am in rush to upgrade yet as i would prefer to wait for an ios5 jailbreak and to be honest i am pretty happy with 4.3.5..

    You don't have to upgrade to a firmware to save blobs for a firmware. I highly recommend you go ahead and download the newest version of Tiny Umbrella, which will save your iOS 5.0.1 SHSH blobs for you.

    For two reasons: It never hurts to save blobs, it causes no harm and I'm hearing rumors that the jail break community might be able to do something with blobs.

    Okay, that was three reasons, but my point is, it's good to get into the habit of saving blobs, it doesn't hurt anything and it does NOT matter or depend on what version you have installed. It's all about when Apple is signing the firmware...

    Okay guys so I finally made a choice and upgraded my iPad to version 5.0.1.
    Thanks for the helping ! Much appreciated ! :D

    So any other things I should do now with this new version ? Like saving blobs or something ?
    And there is no tethered jailbreak for iPad 2 ? :/

    I'm still on 5.0 on my iPad 2 WiFi. Has everyone upgraded to 5.0.1 in hopes of a JB? Will there be a JB for 5.0?

    Okay, this is my opinion:

    But, if I were sitting on iOS 5.0, I would NOT upgrade until a jailbreak (tethered or untethered) for the iPad2 (or untethered for the iPad1) is actually released for public consumption. As ye olde English proverb states: There's many a slip 'twixt the cup and the lip.

    I'm just sayin'...

    Rather than spread misinformation, false hope, (or troll, I can't decide which you are doing), you should perhaps review the FACTS in our sticky here before telling folks they should google a solution to jailbreak the iPad2 on 4.3.5 using Safari - http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/44596-official-ipad2-jailbreak-thread.html

    For the avoidance of doubt, there is currently NO WAY to jailbreak any iPad2 other than one with 4.3.3 installed. Our tutorial for that is here - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...utorial-jailbreak-ipad2-4-3-3-jbme-3-0-a.html

    Ok thats great but aftering reading all the other threads on here. Am i right in thinking that i need to install ios 5.0 only. I assume if i do the upgrade dynamically throu itunes it will install the latest version.

    Is there somewhere i can get just ios5.0?

    I hear you can get them from the apple site but i have struggled to find them. There is a possibility i could have been told false information.

    Thanks

    You can get the iOS 5.0 firmware (and IPSW file) from here, or Apple's site with no trouble. The problem is, you cannot inSTALL that firmware on your iPad unless you have the SHSH blobs. Apple stopped signing that window in middle November. Since you don't have those blobs, you can only upgrade to iOS 5.0.1.

    And yes, that is the only version that iTunes will load.

    Just to say i finally did upgrade to 5.0.1 and cant believe i didnt do it sooner.... Like some of the new features of the OS... Havent noticed much of a speed diffence through ;-(

    All in all though im happy....

    Tempted in looking at that new jailbreak available but first want to see what benefits a jb will bring for me...

    One thing i am particularly interested in is not relying on itunes as i am not a big fan of the software...
