    Hi,
    I would like to update my ipad 2 which is currently on 4.3.1.
    I want to upgrade it to 4.3.3 but itunes only allows me to update to 4.3.5.

    Can anyone help me on this?

    Regards
    Vix

    See if this helps.



    Can I upgrade or downgrade my new iPad2 to 4.3.3?

    No, sorry, you are too late. You can only install version 4.3.3 of iOS on your iPad2 if you have saved SHSH Blobs for 4.3.3. Blobs are unique to your device and must be provided by Apple, and they stopped providing 4.3.3 blobs several months ago. There is no way to copy, forge, or otherwise bypass this security. If your iPad2 is new then you have no 4.3.3 blobs and no way to get them. No blobs means no downgrade / upgrade. Sorry. See our FAQ here for more information on blobs - SHSH Blobs - Frequently Asked Questions - UPDATED

    Not true. SHSH blobs are only needed for downgrading. You can download the Ipsw file from here and update through iTunes with it. [ Link removed!
    Once you have it installed go to jailbreakme.com to get it jail broken.

    Hold on. Let me figure this out.:)

    So you are saying that Leigh is incorrect here:

    Sorry, Snowboarder, but you are a tad confused; having SHSH blobs applies to downgrades AND upgrades.

    Without SHSH blobs, you can only install iOS firmware that Apple is still signing. Today, that is firmware 4.3.5.

    To put iOS 4.3.3 on your iPad, whether as an upgrade OR a downgrade requires you to have saved the SHSH blobs for that version of firmware when Apple was still signing it. Again, no SHSH blobs for 4.3.3 = no iOS 4.3.3 on your iPad. Ever.

    Yeah, it gets a bit confusing, what with all the versions running around.

    Hope that clarifies things.
