    Hi, Im having problems with my ipad. I need to download 4.3.3 so i can jailbreak from jailbreakme.com, My current version is 4.3.2, I downloaded the 4.3.3 (ipsw) in order to update my ipad 2,

    ***I Put my ipad in DFU mode and Pressed alt+restore to click the ipsw file***

    A error message comes up shorty saying " The ipad could not be restored. THis device isn't eligible for the requested build.

    How can i bypass this error message? And resotre my ipad 2 to 4.3.3

    Thanks;)

    From what I heard I think you need the blobs for 4.3.3. If I'm correct your outta luck.

    100% correct. You haven't saved your blobs so you have to upgrade to 4.3.5. Sorry.
    I think you can jailbreak 4.2.2 though.

    Go to jailbreakme.com and see what it says.

    If you have an iPad with iOS 4.3.2, you cannot jailbreak it. JailbreakMe only works for the iPad2 running 4.3.3.

    And, as the others have said, if you don't have SHSH blobs saved for version 4.3.3, you cannot load that version onto your iPad (and thus be able to jail break it).

    Sorry, but you've missed the opportunity.

    I was thinking that on 4.2.2 the PDF hole was still there.

    You need to have connected to Cydia when apple was still signing the 4.3.3 firmware... If you haven't then a restore to 4.3.3 won't happen... Only way to find out if you are not currently jail broken is to try the restore with the modified hosts and see what happens... I've tried it and it didn't do anything... Just returns an error. Make sure you read tutorials on entering DFU and you should be fine. However if you are not sure, then you most likely don't have the saved blob. But it doesn't hurt to try, just be sure to do a backup first.

    If any of my information is incorrect, someone please feel free to correct me.

    No, jailbroken or not, you will still get an error if you try to go to 4.3.3. And you don't have to be jailbroken to save shsh.

    To save shsh though, download tinyumbrella (google it) and plug in your iPad and hit save shsh. It will save shsh for 4.3.5 and iOS beta 5 of you are a developer.
