    Default Cheap easy method.
    You realize that you don't need to but a UUID activation, you can just downgrade your ipad to 3.x and then shift-update, select 4.3 firmware, and it does it? Just did it to 3 of my friends, saw this thread, and thought I'd enlighten you.

    lol, that made me laugh.

    Sorry I dont have any dev slots left. You can look in the B/S/T section. There are a few people in there that may be able to hook you up.

    I'm guessing you have a iPad 3G and are getting a 1015 error when trying to restore to 4.2.1?

    Yes when 4.3 comes out you will be fine. In the meantime if you have 3.2.2 SHSH restore to that. If not head over to the B/S/T and see if someone can add you to their dev account so that 4.3b3 will work for you.

    Did anyone see my post, or what? If you can downgrade to 3.x, you can update it to 4.3 and keep activation withou jail breaking, nor having to register your uuid! Use tiny umbrella to downgrade to 3.x, then when that's done, hold down shift and click UPDATE, not restore, then select the desired 4.3 firmware, and when it's one, it should retain it's activated status from 3.x. It works for me, I've done it twice now.

    Ya I saw it. Will only work if the person has 3.2.2 SHSH though.

    I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that the majority of people who are updating to 4.3 have there shsh's saved, or have there uuid registered, but i guess those select few who don't, are out of luck. I'm looking for another way, to activate, or restore, but meh, the majority of people already know this.

    There have been a few I have seen without 3.2.2 shsh. Their only option right now is getting their udid registered.

    Well, not there only option, if they jailbreak it using redsnow, they can just remove the <key>Beta<\key> from the info plist, it can be activated.

    There are custom firmware floating about that will work too. Little harder to come by and even harder to boot tethered. I just meant for the average user.

    I guess, but then again, the average user docent go around downloading and installing beta firmware, now do they? But, yes, there are options, I just posted my preferred method.

    I also met that kind of problem when I downgrading iPhone 4 from 4.2b3 to 4.0.1
    All I do is find another new computer that TinyUmbrella was not installed. A fresh one... I restore it and worked fine..

    Restore iPad data from backup files, with the help of iPad Data Extractor:
    1. Settings>General>Reset>Erase all content and settings
    2. You'll be asked twice to confirm
    3. You'll see Apple logo and progress bar
    4. You'll see a big iPad logo on screen
    5. Configuration start
    6. Set language
    7. Set country
    8. Select Network and input Password>Join
    9. Enable Location Service>Next
    10. You'll be given 3 options (a) Setup as New iPad (b) Restore from iCloud Backup (c)
