    I keep my iPad untethered for the most part so I haven't updated my firmware for a while. I'm stuck at 4.3.1. I can't save the SHSH for it. I get the "you are just too late" error showing up in the TU log. Am I really stuck or should I chance it and move on to 4.3.4 firmware? Is jb'ing completely out of the question?

    Sorry for the dumb questions. Completely new to jb'ing and I don't want to brick my iPad :(

    I really appreciate you trying to assist folks, but can you please watch the linking out to other blogs when we have perfectly good resources of our own? Check our rules please. We frown on promoting other sites if we have the info here...

    This thread contains all the info the OP may need about how to jailbreak any version of IOS for any device (and there is a wealth of other info in our various stickies)
    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/24377-jailbreaking-methods-ipad.html

    Hopefully if they have an iPad1, they can use redsn0w on 4.3.1 and have an untethered JB. If however they have an iPad2, they will be out of luck. Alternatively, as you said, they could upgrade to 4.3.4 and have a tethered jailbreak, but as the OP stated they never go near their PC with their iPad often, that would probalby NOT be a very good choice for them.

    Hope that clarifies.

    Thanks for the link, I'll read that first. I have an iPad 1 still at 4.3.1. I don't HAVE to have an unthethered jb but I would really like a plan B in case something goes horribly wrong.

    My plan C on a bricked iPad is to just go buy another one :)

    Well, the differences between 4.3.1 and 4.3.4 are absolutely minimal. A few minor bug fixes.

    I would strongly suggest you JB your 4.3.1 iPad using redsn0w which is untethered. We have a detailed tutorial in our guides section. Look it up :)

    If you ever get into serious problems, be assured, you CANNOT brick an iPad. Worst that will happen is you will have to restore to 4.3.4. From there, you can choose to run a tethered JB using redsn0w again (plan B!), or leave it as stock. It is up to you.

    Hope that helps.

    That helps a great deal! I reran TU and got the 4.3.4 (and a few of 5's).

    Next time I post it should be after a successful jb. Thanks again.

    Run iFaith to get your 4.3.1 Blobs if you are still on 4.31

    Great advice! That's a proper plan B! :)

    Ipad jailbroken. It was a bit anti-climactic :)

    There wasn't a Mac version of iFaith so I had to fire up a win xp vm and run it there. Took a few tries to get I ti DFU mode. Backed up my SHSH blobs.

    Once cydia was installed, I installed dospad, openssh scp'd a dos version of perl, ruby, tcl, and vim.

    Now to explore what cydia has to offer.

    Many thanks to all who helped.
