    Hi everyone,
    I was wondering if it's possible to perform the re-restore on IOS 6.1 having the blobs saved or if it's not now if it will be, since IOS 6.1.1 is probably going to come out soon it's something that I think would be cool if it could be done. I remember having some problems when I was on IOS 5.1.1 and I couldn't perform the re-restore because I had the factory IOS. Thanks everyone in advance.

    John

    Yep I know I still can now but I was wondering for a re-restore in the future in case I have some problems. Thanks

    Please be careful what information you give out IA, as of iOS 6 it's not possible to use blobs to go back to a non signed iOS without specific blobs saved, please read the stickies in the iPad hacking section, the one on saving blobs through tiny umbrella is very helpful, I'll find a link and post it for you below.

    And, to add to TheRamber's excellent advice - there is no re-restore for iOS 6 ... yet. Obviously, we all hope for one, but there has been nothing released.

    The only re-restore that is available is for iOS 5.1.1 and, unless you have an iPad2 with specific SHSH blobs (iOS 4.x and iOS 5.1.1), there is no way for any other iPad to be downgraded to iOS 5.1.1 once you are on iOS 6.

    I know, there's lots of finer points - just want to make sure everyone knows the details. Thanks.

    I apologize but I'm not sure I understand, in the event of IOS 6.1.1 coming out and me having to restore, will I be able to go back to IOS 6.1 with blobs saved through tiny umbrella? I thought it wasn't possible unless a jailbreak for IOS 6.1.1 comes out.

    No timely, as of this present moment, once you move onto the current iOS, then that's where you will have to stay, and if you have to restore your iPad for any unfortunate reason, unless iOS 6.1 is still being signed, then the current apple signing is what you will have to restore too. If that is not jailbroken, your iPad will remain stock until the JB'ers work there magic on a future Jailbreak

    So what you say is correct, only if 6.1.1 is jailbroken will you have the opportunity to possess a future jailbroken ipad
