    Awesome news for iPad2 3G owners today. notcom, the developer of TinyUmbrella, has released a tool to allow iPad2 3G owners to restore their devices to 4.3.3 provided they have saved SHSH Blobs

    NOTE - There is still no way to bypass Apple's SHSH Blobs security, so if you don't have saved blobs you CANNOT use this tool Sorry!

    If you do have saved blobs, TinyCFW work by building a custom firmware for 4.3.3 but including the LATEST baseband. This custom firmware can then be used with TinyUmbrella and iTunes, and when restored to your iPad2 3G will NOT fail with the usual 1015 error and resulting recovery loop.

    This is fantastic news for any iPad2 3G owners who lost their jailbreak due to corruption or installing an incompatible tweak.

    The tool is still very "quick and dirty". It can be downloaded from the usual source - The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella

    Tutorial to follow later :D
