    Thanks...very good to know.

    The previous owner says it was not done OTA, so it looks like I'm good to go.

    hi there! i got a problem which i can't find any answer of it anywhere....
    info about me:
    trying to re restore ipad 3 GSM from 5.1.1 to 5.1.1.
    i have shsh blobs of 5.1.1 and on cydia either.
    i am stuck between bootlogo-DFU or recovery mode.
    i tried many in many ways to do it but anything i do it stops right after extracting the .dmg's(which is after redsnow starts the re restore proccess).
    the error which i get is: "Re-restore failed You might have guessed the current FW incorrectly, and it may not really be iPhone3,3_5.1.1_9B206"

    any help out there
    :(?????

    That message indicates you are tying to use an iPhone3 firmware file NOT and iPad3 firmware file. Check you have downloaded the correct firmware!

    let me show you the proccess with screenshots:
    1st: after i chooose the 5.1.1 firmware, it asks me if i want from 5.1.1 to 5.1.1, i press yes:1-redsnow.jpg
    2nd: it starts the proccess and preparing all that restore stuff(rebuilding the ipsw):red-2.jpg
    3rd: after it finish to make the restore ipsw it is starting to "talk" to the ipad andf tell him to start.(but still... the ipad shows black screen and suddenly apple bootlogo -without- progress bar):red-3.jpg
    4th: the ipad seems not to start the restore, but try to turn on regulary (which is not working) and i get this error message: red-4.jpg

    please help :(.... should i give up? or should i wait more? i am tired of this and really need the jailbreak.. so aint gonna do ios6.

    edit:
    i tryed few more things and gave up to ios 6.... its pretty good except of the appstore.

    You could have a little more patience please! 3 posts in 15 minutes and 2 visitor messages on my profile is excessive! ;)

    There is unfortunately nothing you can do. Once the iPad3 is on 6.x it cannot be downgraded under any circumstances.

    Sorry to be a one post wonder and without wanting to offend by cutting straight to the chase but......

    I've encountered exactly the same error using exactly the same software and firmware downloads. I haven't got the wrong IPSW and I'm trying to recover an ipad 3 with 5.1.1 with blobs saved on Cydia and verified. It's not us, there clearly must be an issue? :)
