Thread: Just bought iPad 2 on 4.3.5
09-10-2011, 11:06 AM #21
I have a question: this week I won a 64GB iPad 2 WiFi+3G (Verizon) and it's coming Wednesday. I have no idea what firmware is on it, but assuming the worst and it's 4.3.4 or later. My Cydia shows SHSH blobs available for 4.1, 4.2.1, 4.3.3, 4.3.4 and 4.3.5.
Does this mean I'm okay to downgrade if the iPad I receive is 4.3.4 or later, or am I missing something?
Any info is appreciated.

Sorry no. SHSH blobs are iDevice + iOS version unique. No sharing allowed.

No one really knows. When you get it, use Tiny Umbrella to find out. Who knows, you might get lucky again

Cool. Also, does the fact it's WiFi+3G (Verizon) make any difference?
Sorry for the questions but I'm new to the iPad.

I bet it'll be 4.3.3 jailbreakable. When you receive it, it needs iTunes to activate. It WILL ask to update, the biggest mistake people make is hit ok and the first time it starts it's at 4.3.5. Just plug it in iTunes until it boots and cancel the updates. 4.3.3 is the only version on iPad 2 that you can jailbreak, it's not the earliest version but WAS the most common and being this is some sort of raffle or competition you won, the prize was probably sitting around for a while.

Having won an iPad is happiness and if it comes with iOS 4.3.3 will be double happiness

I'll have to hide it somewhere so my office staff or patients don't touch it, LOL!

Congratulations .... I think .. maybe.
I hope you meant to say 4.3.3?
At the moment, iOS 4.3.3 is the one and only jailbreakable iPad 2 iOS.

IF you have 4.3.3 SHSH blobs -- yes. Without 4.3.3 SHSH blobs -- no.
It's the ole catch-22. Once Apple stops signing 4.3.3, it's gone forever unless it's running 4.3.3
Edit: And for the iPad 2 ... it is gone forever because iFaith doesn't work on the iPad 2.

Darn! I just hooked it up to iTunes and sure enough, it says 4.3 not 4.3.3.
So my newly won iPad 2 can't be updated or jailbroken, then?

Sorry ... sorry ... sorry. No!
But please check Tiny Umbrella. Never know what is available until checking.

Just downloaded and started Tiny Umbrella and it's more bad news: There are no SHSH blobs showing up for the iPad 2.
Now I'm depressed!

You were lucky to get it free
You have two choices. Stay at 4.3 or go to 4.3.5. Both unjailbroken.
Personally, I would stay put. No reason to update or change.
IF (highly unlikely though) a new jailbreak is found, staying old is usually better.
Note: Also, you should have a 4.3.5 SHSH blob.
