    I updated my iPad 2 by accident unaware that you could no longer restore it. So I never even heard of Tiny Umbrella until after I did it. So I never saved any blobs. So really I'm just wondering if anyone knows when a jailbreak will be available for people on 4.3.5 firmware for iPad 2.

    I wouldn't hold your breath. Not coming any time soon. I don't think there will be anything before ios5 comes out. Sorry, I am sure that isn't what you want to hear. Just my opinion.

    I think most people would agree with the previous poster - there's really little incentive to work on a JB for iOS4.3.5. However, a JB for iOS 5 is going to be a real challenge because Apple have made significant changes that will make jail breaking very much more difficult.

    I would not rule out automatic over the air updates in iOS 5 with no option to opt out either. The ability to send small, incremental updates OTA without warning will be very attractive to patch any security hole in the future.

    The fact that Apple does not do blind updates today is much more related to the size of a full OS update than it is to giving you any sense of control.

    Jobs thinks of the iPad as an appliance where he controls what it can do, not a general purpose computer that you control.

    If you were jailbroken already then your shsh bob was saved for you. Cydia now save them.

    I don't think you will see updates that are not optional.

    To get back to the original question: there IS a way to downgrade your iPad 2 running OS 4.3.5. But apparently only if you've got the Wi-Fi version. Check out this link here if you're lucky and don't have a SIM card slot in your iPad 2.

    [Moderator edit: Removed [old] link to external website...]

    Now be that as it may, I'd still like to know what would happen to a 3G model if you'd try to use this method? Would it refuse to downgrade entierly or would you just loose your 3G connectivity? Anyone who knows what they're talking about have any ideas?

    Does the shsh blob do you any good though? I mean can you still use it seeing as it's a pain downgrading (and may be impossible for 3G iPad 2s)?

    There has been a way to downgrade both the iPad2 WiFi only and the iPad2 with 3G for weeks now. This downgrade is possible if you are on iOS 4.3.4 or 4.3.5. See this tutorial: http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...-your-ipad-using-tinyumbrella-shsh-blobs.html

    ---BUT---

    You must - repeat, MUST! - have saved your SHSH blobs for iOS 4.3.3. If you have not saved those blobs, you cannot downgrade to iOS 4.3.3.

    I've removed the link to the above as these links (and downgrade/jail breaking tutorials) are readily available in this Hacking section

    There are reasons why it requires a forum member to have four posts before being able to post links...

    ..it prevents them from posting old news containing old links from external web sites. Please read the rules about posting external links!

    Jail Breaking 4.3.5 - See video

    Seems very very complicated though
