Thank you. Any idea wen iOS 6 jailbreak will release.

There's no way to tell. It could be as long as a few months or as short as a few weeks.
Just keep an eye on this thread, news of any jailbreak will be announced here.

Devastated! :( my iPad 2 had a mental breakdown and had to be restored, it decided to update itself to IOS 6 :( and my sister has "kindly" deleted my IOS 4 & 5 blobs from her laptop :( not really sure it could be any worse.

Try get them remotely from cydia..
It should work so long as you opened Cydia at least once when you were on iOS 5..

If you've been jail broken before, then Cydia does [most likely] have your SHSH blobs. Marilyn

I have two questions...

(1) If I update my iPad 2 from 5.0.1 to 6, I will lose my current jailbreak. If I backup the SHSH blobs prior to upgrading, will I be able to use TinyUmbrella to restore the SHSH blobs back to 5.0.1? Are there detailed instructions?
(2) Is there any further information on jailbreaking an iPad 2 with 6?

You can only downgrade that iPad2 if you have blobs for iOS 4.x (and version) AND blobs for the iOS 5 version you want to downgrade to. But - you have to have saved those blobs when Apple was signing them. If you haven't already saved them, you can't downgrade off of iOS 6.

And, there is no jail break for the iPad on iOS 6 at this time. Keep an eye on this thread for the lated on the iOS 6 jail break: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=89458

First off - please respect the fact that this forum is an international forum and members cannot be expected to answer within one half hour. Plus, our rules require you let 48 hours go by - then, if there is no response, you may ask again for assistance. In other words, a little patience, please. Thanks.

Now, to your question: In order to jail break that iPad, you'll have to be on iOS 5.0.1 or 5.1.1. However, the only way to install either iOS on your iPad is if you have SHSH blobs for iOS 4 (any version) AND for iOS 5.0.1 or 5.1.1. If you have BOTH sets of blobs, see this post for jail breaking: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=92572

If you do not have those blobs, then no, there is no way you can jail break that iPad2 at this time. Your only option will be to go to iOS 6 and wait for a jail break to be released for this iOS. And, see this thread to stay up with the latest news on an iOS 6 jail break: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=89458

I have a ipad2 3G version, it's on 4.3.3 with jailbreak. I have the SHSH blobs 4.3.3, 5.1.1, 6.0.1. Can I upgrade to iOS 5.1.1 then jailbreak now? Can I go from 4.3.3 then restore to 5.1.1? or I need to go to 6.x then back to 5.1.1?

It's a bit not clear to me as I saw on iClarified site that it need both the IPSW files for both 5.1.1 and 4.3.3,

You should be able to restore your iPad2 to iOS 5.1.1. All you need are the SHSH blobs for iOS 5.1.1 and iOS 4 (any version). Since you have them, you are good to go.

So, download redsn0w and let 'er rip. Good luck.
