    Hi,
    I am afraid I know the answer but figured I would ask the experts anyways. My light bleeds are really starting to annoy me. If I take it in for a replacement now, am I out of luck to JB the replacement. I have my blobs saved on TU?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, you are correct. The blobs you have saved are specific to your current iPad. When you get a new one, you'd have to save blobs for it - and you can only save what Apple is currently signing (iOS 4.3.5 ... maybe 4.3.4).

    However, you may get "lucky" in that the new one may still be running iOS version 4.3.3 (as in, I don't see stores shipping back all the iPads just for a relatively minor upgrade). If you got one still running 4.3.3, you could jail break it, but then you'd have to be r-e-a-l careful with it, because you can't save the blobs and anything you do that'd cause it to need a restore will result in the JB being lost.

    Still, could be worth a shot - but, that's not a guarantee...

    So, you'll have to pick your poison: Light bleeding on a jail broke iPad or no light bleed on a stock one, with a hope that maybe it's on 4.3.3 (and a vigil started to hope that "they" can jail break iOS 5 soon...).

    Sorry 'bout that. Good luck with your decision.

    Thank you! That is what I thought but really appreciate your input. Think I will have to put up with the Bleed and hold out hope for a 5.0 JB. I really enjoy my tweaks.

    Thanks again.

    I am in the same position as you are with a defective iPad that still works that's jailbroken. Apple already said they'll give me a new one, but I am still hesitant to let it go. I do believe that ios5 will be jailbreakable when it's released. Between now and then, it's probably around 2 month, I think i can live un jail broken for 2 month lol
