    At this time, there is no way to install any iOS on an iPad2 other than iOS 6. If you need to restore or upgrade your iPad, then you must use iOS 6 as that is the only one Apple is signing (read: approving). Sorry.

    If you want to preserve your jailbreak, then the best advice is to wait for the new version of redsn0w. It will allow you some flexibility to restore 5.x firmwares on the iPad2 IF you have saved SHSH Blobs in Cydia or via TinyUmbrella. If you do restore to 6.0, you will be stuck there until a new jailbreak is developed and released.

    We don't have a release date for either the new jailbreak or the new redsn0w which will support restoration of 5.x firmwares.
