    Have an iPad one jail broken 4.3.3, all is fine but wanted to save the blobs, the only blob I was able to save was 4.3.5. Now, I do have the original backup when I jail broke to 4.3.3.

    My question is, if and when I upgrade to the new iOS and I determine I don't like it, can I revert back to a jail broken state using my original backup when I first jail broke my iPad? Or, would I have to jailbreak all over again using 4.3.5 blob?

    You are very lucky. Since you have an iPad1 and 4.3.3 installed you have the safety net of using iFaith to extract your blobs from your device. This only works for iPad1.

    You can download iFaith from it's homepage here - iH8sn0w.com -- Maintenance Mode

    (the website is currently down for maintenance, but there is a holding page with download links)

    This is you ONLY option to save 4.3.3 blobs so I suggest you do it now!

    OK, I downloaded the file and everything seems to be ok with the exception of a message I'm getting from iFaith.

    It says 0/13 SHSH Blobs captured and waiting for iPad 1, nothing is happening.

    So you've connected the iPad and put it into DFU mode following the guidance of iFaith to assist you? It does not sound like you achieved DFU mode properly. It can be tricky, so try again...
