    Maybe not the right place for this query on this forum, but simple answer: yes. The nice thing, though, is that the device can be restored prior to service and then - if I understood it correctly - re-JBed! 

    And, no, from what I've gathered, it's not illegal to JB ones iPad! 

    As hinted, this belongs in the iPad hacking section. There you'll find other queries similar to yours. This, for instance, might be helpful... 

    Hamza: I've moved your post over to the Hacking section of the forum.

    As Coffeeboy (Stefan) said, there are plenty of topics and questions covering jail breaks. Take a look around, do a search or two, and you'll see that jail breaking is perfectly legal and, if you restore the iPad to stock - warranty's fine.

    On your personal iPad, did you save SHSH blobs for iOS 4.3.3? If not, then no, there is no way to go back to that iOS version. Sorry.

    No you cannot. Please read our FAQ here for all the information on SHSH Blobs - http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/24323-shsh-blobs-frequently-asked-questions.html

    Without blobs you cannot downgrade. No exceptions.

    Can you confirm do you have iPad1 or iPad2?
    If you have an iPad1 you can do a tethered jailbreak on 4.3.4 with redsn0w. See here for infroamtion on tethered jailbreaks - http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/24377-jailbreaking-methods-ipad.html and here for a tutorial on redsn0w - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...tutorial-jailbreak-ipad1-redsn0w-windows.html

    If you have an iPad2 your are out of luck. Sorry.
