    Default Best way to restore iOS 5.0.1 without upgrading?
    Hi,
    Sorry if this has been discussed before, I just don't know what search terms to use

    I have an iPad 2 that I am selling, and the buyer wants me to retain the jailbreak. Currently using 5.0.1. By the time I sell the device (about two weeks), Apple will definitely stop signing iOS 5.0.1.

    I do have my shsh blobs if that means anything

    In the past, I've tried everything I can to restore to the exact same iOS version with Tiny Umbrella but it never seemed to work for me

    Anyone know the best way I can restore without upgrading? I know in the Settings page there is an option to "erase all data" but my researched showed that many people who did that got stuck at the boot screen.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks so much!

    You can't restore it without upgrading to 5.1. There is no bootrom exploit for a5 devices such as ipad2 and iPhone 4s the a4 chips are pwned with limera1n forever this you can upgrade and downgrade on iPhone 4 and earlier devices. It sucks I know...
