    Can't downgrade from 5.1.1 to ANYthing else. iPad 1

    Thanks, f4780. I've done it that way also time and again. It's an iPad 1 3G and I'm using Windows 7 64-bit if that makes a difference. This is driving me crazy. I've done this whole downgrading thing hundreds of times and I don't know why it's messing up. Should I still be able to downgrade to...

    Can't downgrade from 5.1.1 to ANYthing else. iPad 1

    I've got an iPad 1 that I've had jailbroken for 2 yrs. I've had pretty much every ios on it, upgraded, downgraded, Cydia has all my shsh, everything. Yet a few days ago I installed 5.1.1 (from 4.3.5) and while Cydia *has* my shsh for 4.3.5 I can't for the LIFE of me get downgraded to anything...

    WiFi dropping out after 4.3 upgrade

    Billee, I had the same problem with 4.2. When it didn't get better on 4.3 I scurried back to 3.2.1 and this is where I'm staying until everyone consistently has NO wifi problems. I had 4.2.1 the past month or so and was really hoping 4.3 would work and not drop the wifi like 4.2.1. No such luck...

    Cydia packages/apps compatible for iPad!

    I can't for the life of me get circuitous working in 4.2. Anyone else having this problem? I even went so far as to restore & re-jailbreak and ONLY install circuitous and it still crashes. If I take all favorites off, the blank dock will work but that's hardly useful. I'm debating on going back...

    How to undo the jailbreak

    Are you sure you're not trying too install 4.3 beta without your UDID registered? That's what it sounds like to me as that's the only time I got that specific error code. I updated to 4.3 fine (after registering my UDID) but it won't allow me to downgrade to 4.2.1 even though I have blobs saved...

    Cydia app for YouTube capture?

    Ok, Bamfsig, I went to the directions and I do remember trying that also. It tells me the file can't be written. I'm sure I could go through wifi, edit the file and replace it in iFile. But that seems like such a pain and I'm not by my main computer right now to do it. Thanks for trying to help...

    Cydia app for YouTube capture?

    Thanks, Bamfsig. I'll try that as soon as I leave here! Dr Gee, I just used iFile (Cydia app) and navigated to the files, they're at: var/mobile/applications/TagDiskHD/Documents/files Assuming you use iFile make sure (in iFile settings) that 'application names' is toggled to ON. Otherwise...

    Cydia app for YouTube capture?

    YourTubeHD in Cydia doesn't work with 4.2. I was hoping they'd have it fixed by now but no go so it was a wasted $5 for me. It keeps asking for some gs.wildcat file (and no, you can't set Cydia to 'developer' and download the file from there). TagDiskHD really downloads YouTube videos so you can...

    Dropping WiFi

    Problems with wifi dropping here on 4.2 also. I normally never installed SBSettings but the wifi-dropping got so bad I installed SBSettings just to have fast access to turn wifi off then back on to get the signal back. No problems on 3.2x but I did have problems with all the 4.2 betas and now...

    Downgrade and JB possible? Or JB later?

    Now that Activator & Infinidock are working on 4.2 I finally went ahead and jail broke with the tethered jailbreak. I've been holding out on 3.2.1 all this time. A couple Cydia apps required me to reboot but most only need a respring, resprings don't require you be tethered to your computer. I...

    KILLED Ipad

    The only people who have trouble are the ones that jump into it without knowing what they're doing. If you have to come to a forum asking how to 'fix' it, then you jumped into it without knowing what you were doing ahead of time. My iPad is my very 1st Apple device EVER (I'm 50). Yet I've not...

    Why am I so angry?

    LOL! I bet he's the same "DannyBoy85" who wiped the floor with me playing SpellStacker on the iPad, too! I recognize the name ;-) I love that game, by the way. And this IS the friendliest forum. I'm on 5 so I can throw in my 2 cents.

    New Ios 4.2.1 Jailbreak hits the shore..

    You don't have to be a "hacker" to reboot your iPad lol Any more so than you need to be a mechanic to turn your car off. I'm sorry-this hit a funny bone :-) Agreed. Apple's update doesn't do as much for me as staying where I'm at jailbroken on 3.2.1. I did try the betas and all GM's. Not...

    Is it really worth it?

    They don't "brick" their device. People use that term for anything and everything. A true "bricked" device is ruined beyond repair/unusable. People claim they "bricked" their device because they don't know how to do a reset or restore. Then it scares others who don't understand it either. Read...

    Windows Live SkyDrive

    Mr Gale, just go to and sign in with your username, etc. You can get to all of your folders and storage from there. You can download files from there if you use iCab browser or Mercury browser (Safari won't download) but you can't upload files from your iPad to skydive.

    iOS 4.2 GM - 8C134b

    With the 1st GM I did a complete clean restore and had problems then with the 2nd GM I did an update and had worse problems. Surely when the final version comes out most will do an update though. Too many people don't want to mess with reinstalling and setting everything back up from scratch.

    I broke down and tried it this morning for something to mess with. I had wifi problems with the 1st GM but none ever before or on the betas. I did managed to connect this morning with the 2nd GM for all of about 10 seconds. I never could get it to connect to wifi again so ended up taking it off...

    Jailbreak and 4.2GM

    Yea, Cydia's supposedly ready and there's a way of jailbreaking 4.2 for iPhones and iPods by pointing it to the 4.1 firmware. But it does NOT work to try to JB the iPad this way. iPadders will just have to wait.

    Getting Ready for iOS 4.2 - Read This!

    Here's an article with links about it: iOS 4.2 Delayed Due to iPad WiFi Issues, New GM Build Coming And neudof-there's no official jailbreak released for 4.2 for the iPad. They want to hold off until the final 4.2 is released by Apple.

    Getting Ready for iOS 4.2 - Read This!

    Mine's sitting jailbroken in 3.2.1 and is going to stay that way until I hear from everyone else whether the wifi problems are resolved from the GM release. How do you know for sure the update is tomorrow?

    Adding fonts to iPad

    I'm going to bump this to the top because I'd like to know as well. I know you can download a lot of different fonts from Cydia if you're jail broken. But it sure would be nice to be able to install any compatible font you wanted through iFile (or whichever program you use for it).

    4.2 GM Just Released

    4.2 GM Just Released

    That's not true. I'm not a developer and I did a clean full restore to 4.2 GM. Just hit shift+restore (in Windows) and browse to the GM firmware. (Although I did got back to JB'n 3.21 because of wifi issues).
  34. K

    Might have messed up. Please help.

    Not sure about all your questions but I do know you can uninstall and redownload and reinstall Cydia apps over and over once you've bought them. It saves a record of your iPad and remembers you :-)

    4.2 GM Just Released

    No, you're fine. You don't have to worry about unlocking on an iPad. If you do a shift+Update and navigate to the 4.2 GM you won't lose any of your settings either. Be sure to have the 10.1 beta 2 iTunes though. 4.2 needs it to get your iPad up and running afterwards. Edit: forgot to say-you can...
