    Welcome to the iPadForums Official iPad2 Jailbreak Thread. This thread provides iPad2 owners with all the information they need to get started jailbreaking their iPad2.

    Can I jailbreak my iPad2?
    You can only jailbreak your iPad2 if it currently has iOS Version 5.1.1, 5.0.1 or 4.3.3 installed on it. There is no jailbreak for any other versions. The iPad2 hardware coupled with IOS5 software is a very challenging platform to develop a jailbreak for. The existing jailbreaks for 4.3.3, 5.0.1 and 5.1.1 took many months of effort. The jailbreak community NEVER gives release dates / ETA's for future jailbreaks, so there is absolutely no point in asking when the next jailbreak will be released. Nobody will know until it gets very very close!

    I have version 5.1.1! How do I jailbreak?
    Congratulations! You will need to use the Absinthe 2.c tool to jailbreak your device which takes between 5 and 30 minutes in total depending on the amount of data on your device. The latest version of Absinthe can be downloaded from here:Absinthe 2.0 has arrived! | greenpois0n.com
    If you need some help with the process, see our tutorial here - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...ilbreak-ipad2-ipad3-5-1-1-absinthe-2-0-a.html

    I have version 5.0.1! How do I jailbreak?
    Congratulations! You will need to use the Absinthe tool to jailbreak your device which takes between 5 and 30 minutes in total depending on the amount of data on your device. The latest version of Absinthe can be downloaded from Absinthe 2.0 has arrived! | greenpois0n.com
    If you need some help with the process, see our tutorial here - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...-tutorial-jailbreak-ipad2-5-0-1-absinthe.html
    For the Windows CLI tool see here - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...d2-5-0-1-absinthe-using-windows-cli-tool.html

    I have version 4.3.3! How do I jailbreak?
    Congratulations! You are only a few moments away from jailbreaking your device. Open Safari on your iPad2 and visit jailbreakme.com. If you need a bit more support, see our tutorial here - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...utorial-jailbreak-ipad2-4-3-3-jbme-3-0-a.html

    Can I upgrade or downgrade my iPad2 to 5.0.1?
    Yes, but only if you have saved SHSH Blobs! Thanks to the hard work of the jailbreak community, there is a way for iPad2 owners - with saved SHSH blobs - to downgrade to iOS 5.0.1. Please see this sticky for a tutorial on using the latest tools to downgrade your ipad2: http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...our-ipad2-ipad3-using-shsh-blobs-redsn0w.html

    Please remember that this process will work ONLY if you have SHSH blobs saved for iOS 5.0.1. Then, once you have downgraded to that iOS, you can jail break it using Absinthe as mentioned above.

    Can I upgrade or downgrade my iPad2 to 4.3.3?
    You can only install version 4.3.3 of iOS on your iPad2 if you have saved SHSH Blobs for 4.3.3 and ONLY if you don't have the 3G CDMA model. Blobs are unique to your device and must be provided by Apple, and they stopped providing 4.3.3 blobs back in June 2011. There is no way to forge them or otherwise bypass this security. If your iPad2 is new then you have no 4.3.3 blobs and no way to get them. No blobs = no install for that version. See our FAQ here for more information on blobs - http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/59291-shsh-blobs-faq-new-improved-2012-a.html

    My iPad isn't new and I was previously jailbroken. Am I out of luck too?
    If you were previously jailbroken on your iPad2 then you will be able to use this guide to restore to 4.3.3 - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...-your-ipad-using-tinyumbrella-shsh-blobs.html. But if you follow it and TU does not list 4.3.3 blobs for your device you are still out of luck, sorry. Also, iPad2 3G owners need to read the note below.

    iPad2 3G Owners: If you have a GSM iPad2 3G you MUST use either TinyCFW or redsn0w 0.9.10b to build a custom firmware to restore 4.3.3 with your saved blobs. You can get TinyCFW from the TinyUmbrella home page and redsn0w from the iPhone Dev-Team blog. Check our tutorial and guides section for help with these tools.
    iPad2 3G CDMA owners have NO WAY to restore a 4.3.3 firmware as things stand, even if you have saved your SHSH Blobs. They are useless at the moment. This warning does not apply to owners of the "iPad2 WiFi Only" model who can use their saved blobs with TinyUmbrella as normal.
