    ok, so ive been playing with it for around an hour before i googled jailbreak ipad 2.

    never done it before and thought it looked straight forward.

    i followed a guide to downgrade first from 4.3.5 to 4.3.3

    i got error 3194, so i googled that and followed another guide using tinyumbrella etc

    this is where my problem lies.

    in tinyumbrella it displays zero SHSH files or anything, when i click save shsh files nothing is downloaded like it is supposed to. tried restoring through itunes with various firmwares and nothing works. it wont turn on and seems to be stuck. i dont know what to do now!
    ive searched everywhere and i hope you guys can help.

    many thanks

    I think you are getting that error because you didn't save your blobs. Let's wait and see others chime in that actually knows what they are talking about.:eek:

    Don't worry ~ really hard to brick your iPad.

    I am sure it is. But don't do anything until instructed, ok?

    OK, can you confirm you followed this tutorial exactly?

    http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...01-how-save-your-shsh-blobs-tinyumbrella.html

    There is no way that tutorial can finish without having at least 4.3.5 SHSH downloaded. Double check all the steps and follow it again.

    Because your iPad is brand new you will not be able to downgrade it. Sorry. The best you can do now is re-install 4.3.5. You will be able to do this once you have finished the tutorial above and exited TU. Simply connect the device in iTunes and press restore. The settings used in the tutorial specifically leave your PC in a state where it can easily restore the latest firmare from Apple without errors such as 3194, so please follow it exactly then try the restore again. OK?

    Hope you get it sorted. Just take you time and follow the instructions. Good luck!

    Open TU and click on the advanced tab. Uncheck "set hosts to Cydia on exit".
    Try restore again.

    sorry to keep posting, im trying to be as informative as possible.

    when it gets to the end of the restore process in itunes it displays'trying to connect with apple servers for vericationof restore'or something along those lines, and then says it cant communicate with servers.

    straight away i thought of the host text file that i had edited previously. so i changed it back to normal and retried the restore but its the same everytime.

    really bummed out :(
