    I currently have a iPad2 not jb with 5.0.1. I held off upgrading iOS due to non jb capability until recently. I had saved the blobs months ago using tinyumbrella. I am wndering if I should upgrade the iPad to 5.1.1 while I can before iOS is in the stream and 5.1.1 is no longer available.

    Yes, you really should! 5.1.1 is stable and jailbreakable. Don't miss your chance. There is no guarantee blobs will help once the next version of ios is released.

    There is no reason that I know of to not upgrade your iPad to 5.1.1 right now. OTA is simple if available to you. It's solid and it works.

    Thanks, Marilyn. That helps a lot.
    FYI
    I used TinyUmbrella to backup blobs and got xxx_ipad3,1-5.1.1.shsh for my iPad3 32GB WIFI non-jailbreak. Here's the log:
    "APPLE is NOT signing iPad31WIFI 5.1 (9B176) SHSH requests anymore. All
    you can do now is select CYDIA and hope that CYDIA has your SHSH saved. If not, there is nothing
    you can do.
    iPad31WIFI 5.1.1 (9B176) SHSH SUCCESSFULLY ... saved! (Click Here to Open)
    Finished saving SHSHs for [Smith'siPad]
    Caching shsh files ...
    Found [1] shsh files to cache ...
    Cached [1] shsh files
    xxxxxxxxxx-ipad3,1-5.1.1.shsh has been opened in Explorer"

    iFaith won't run on A5, A5X, as of today.
    I believe that redsn0w can't use for non-jailbreak.

    I borrowed an jbk iPhone4S 5.1.1, checked Cydia, it says SHSH: 5.0.1,5.0.1r,5.1.1.
    I told him to back up blobs and tell me what he would get. As I understand, he will get SHSH blobs for 5.0.1,5.0.1r and 5.1.1 from Cydia server, but if using Apple server, he will get only blob for 5.1.1.

    LBX.

    I upgraded to iOS 5.1.1 and then ran TinyUmbrella 5.11.01 but it is showing 2 ipads under connected Devices. Its been a while since I save SSH Blobs (5.0.1 days) but I do not remember it showing 2 ipad devices. Is this normal?

    Im running 4.3.3 Jailbroken Ipad 2 3G, and now I want to get 5.1.1 JB... Should I update via itunes to 5.1.1, and then JB it following the 1st post guidance?

    Also, i heard that ios 6 was JB already, do you guys think we should wait for it?

    Thank you so much :)

    //eidt: im sorry, just seen the last few posts up. Im updating right away :)

    If iOS 6 turns out to not have a jailbreak then you may miss out on 5.1.1 also

    Do the update

    Yes.
    0. Backup!!!
    1. Update through iTunes to 5.1.1
    2. Restore.
    3. Backup the Unjailbreaked version you will restore from this once you are jailbreaked again
    4. Go to settings and reset all data and settings
    5. Use absinthe 2.04 to jailbreak.
    6. Restore your backup.

    Should take no longer than 2 hours.
