    Hey everyone,

    I'm simply trying to get my iPad1 back to factory conditions (factory firmware 4.2.1). My iPad had been JBed a long time ago via the tethered Redsnow method, and along the way I installed a lot of junk.

    Now I want to get it back to factory 4.2.1 (and maybe JB it again untethered).

    I'm following this guide:
    http://www.ipadforums.net/jailbreak...-your-ipad-using-tinyumbrella-shsh-blobs.html

    I confirm that I have the original 4.2.1 blob.

    I'm running the TSS server in TinyUmbrella, and then load up itunes. Then I the press the "Restore" button. The problem is, it doesn't look like the TSS server is fooling iTunes. iTune throws up the following message:

    ========================================
    The ipad software update server could not be contacted

    Make sure your network settings are correct...
    ========================================

    I'm not having any luck getting past this message.


    Any ideas?

    Why not upgrade it to 5.1.1? It's untethered jailbreakable using Absinthe, and it gives you more Cydia/AppStore support as 95%+ of apps/tweaks requires iOS 4.3.3 if not iOS 5.0+. That way you won't be limited.

    You know what, you make an excellent point.

    My concern was that IOS 5.x was reported as slow by some people.

    Anyways, I caved and restored my iPad1 to 5.1.1.


    Lets see the reports are true...

    Not at all. In my opinion, iOS 5 is by far one of the most stable iOS out there, and it gives users a wider range of tweak and app support. The only stigma that iOS 5 has is that apparently it drains the battery on the iPhones. Honestly, I've ran iOS 5 on most if not all my devices for the full duration and haven't upgraded any of them to iOS 6 until a little bit into March and such. I don't see that much of a performance difference compared to iOS 4 in terms of lacking anything, but of course it ran a bit smoother considering it's a new iOS. Give it a whirl if anything, and if you do end up wanting to downgrade back to iOS 4, that's easily do-able.
