    First off, hello I'm new to the forum.

    I'm having a serious problem with my Ipad 1, it's was on iOS 4.3.5 on a tethered jailbreak done by redsn0w.
    My computer recently got destroyed and I lost all my files and shsh blobs and such.
    My Ipad died the other night and I need to boot it up with redsn0w but when I open it, it says it wants an ipsw file, I gave it the 4.3.5 restore file but it says 'Unable to recognize specified IPSW.

    I try and restore it with iTunes but it keeps giving me errors.

    All I basically need to do is restore to any working iOS and have it working, the problem is restoring it.

    Anyone help?

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum.
    It's hard to help when you don't say what the restore error is, but try this guide - http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...lsafe-method-restore-current-version-ios.html

    It will fix all the common problems and allow you to restore 5.1.1. From there you can re-jailbreak with the latest Absinthe tool if necessary.

    Hope that helps.
