Thread: Activating new iPad 2 after exploit closed?

  1. #1
    Default Activating new iPad 2 after exploit closed?
    I'm planning to buy an iPad 2 once the jb is released (to replace my ipad1). If the exploit comexs jb uses is closed with 4.3.4 is it possible to activate the new device without iTunes automatically updating to the new iOS?

    If you plan on getting a iPad 2 to jailbreak it you should buy it now so that you can save your 4.3.3 SHSH. Once 4.3.4 comes out you will not be able to do so anymore.

    Saving shsh is for downgrading? I've heard one iOS 5 is out it won't work.? I'm still trying to convince the missus to let me ave one! Ha

    Saving SHSH is for restoring/downgrading/updating. They are very important to have. You heard correct about 5.0 and saving SHSH might not work on that firmware and up (at least in its current form) which makes it even more important to get your SHSH for 4.3.3 NOW.

    So when we open tiny umbrella to save our ipad shsh. i get an error saying i need to uncheck the box (set hosts to cydia on exit ) or (request shsh from cydia).
    so i unchecked the two boxes, apply setting and click save shsh.
    does this i mean im done. this is what i get ;

    " iPad23G 4.3.3 (8J2) SHSH SUCCESSFULLY saved! and iPad23G 5.0b1 (9A5220p) SHSH SUCCESSFULLY saved! "

    " APPLE is NOT signing iPad23G 4.3.1 (8G4) SHSH requests anymore. All you can do now is select CYDIA and hope that CYDIA has your SHSH saved. If not, there is nothing you can do."

    so what about the 5.0b1 ?is this normal or not ?

    So how long typically do apple sign previous firmwares once a new one is released? I'm getting the iPad 2 but I have the chance of one vat free but the firm have no stock at the moment...

    Usually for a few days after a new firmware has come out. That's no guarantee they won't stop sooner though.

    And when I activate my iPad 2 will it automatically force me to update to the latest firmware in iTunes? Or can I avoid it and leave it on 4.3.3?

    iTunes won't force anything. You have to specifically tell it to update. So just don't. You won't be able to restore either though if it is a 3G iPad2.

    At least not after the next update comes out.

    This is really making me not want another 3G iPad 2. I've been waiting for the jailbreak and now I may go with the wifi only 32gb one.

    No, but restoring a 3G is gonna be way harder, I believe.

    Yup, because a iPad2 3G has baseband SHSH as well which cannot be saved. Meaning once Apple stops signing 4.3.3 even if you have 4.3.3 SHSH you will still get an error when trying to restore to it. Normally with another device this would be the time to use the limera1n bootrom exploit to kick it out of recovery. However that will not work on a iPad 2. So basically right now SHSH are not of much use for an iPad2 3G. iPad2 wifi model does not have this problem and will restore fine with SHSH saved with tiny umbrella.

    Do you think it would be possible for someone to create some sort of tool to kick it out of recovery. I mean everything is possible, but I wanna know how hard that would be to make.
