    I found a solution to downgrade the iOS on my iPad from 4.3b3 to 4.2.1:)*I had IOS 4.3b3 on it. what I did was to upgrade to 4.2.1. Upgrade with shift+upgrade and used orginal iOS 4.2.1. You wil get an error in iTunes ignore it. Use tinyumbrella to kick it out of recovery it will start normal and ask for unlock kode ignore it. then i run Greenpos0n RC5_2. and you have IPad on iOS 4.2.1 jailbreaked :D


    Update!

    Just do a iTunes shift+restore and select iOS 4.2.1. you wil get error 1015 ignore it. just run Grenposi0n RC5 and you ar on 4.2.1 jailbreaked :) YES!!

    Update :)

    You don't need Cydia shsh blobs for this on to work, like the sticky thread needs. In iOS 4.2.1 and 4.3 beta's Appel has baseband check that make it impossible to use Tinyumbrella or Cydia to downgrade. :)

    Update! Just do a iTunes shift restore with iOS 4.2.1. you wil get error 1015 ignore it. just run Grenposi0n RC5 and you ar on 4.2.1 jailbreaked :) YES!!

    Hey I'm having trouble with this, whenever I try to do the shift restore and select 4.2.1 I just get a message that says device not eligible, no error message or anything then it just kicks me back to the main itunes restore area.
