Thread: Bought a used ipad2 on 4.3.3 and jailbroken already....backup?

    Default Bought a used ipad2 on 4.3.3 and jailbroken already....backup?
    As the title says, I have a used ipad2 on 4.3.3 that was jailbroken with jailbreakme when I bought it. Is it to late to backup the ipad with itunes in case I want to restore at a later date?

    Normally you should be able to back it up in iTunes just fine, but since it's used I'm not sure what would happen since it's been synced with a different computer. I'm guessing it will just wipe the data then out all your stuff on it but I'm not sure if it will require a full restore. Download Tiny Umbrella and check to see if it has SHSH blobs saved for 4.3.3, if it does you're good either way as long as you have wifi only iPad.

    The person I bought it from said he did a "fresh restore" to 4.3.3 and then jailbroke it with jailbreakme. When I save the blobs it only has;

    4.3.5
    5.ob1-5ob6

    I was going to do that but when I start TU, it gives me a warning saying that "Request SHSH from Cydia is set. This can cause issues if you are trying to save current SHSH's as Cydia is no longer able to reliably proxy SHSH requests".

    Should I just check that box anyways?

    Ah, and it is a wifi only ipad.

    Ignore the message, check mark request shah from Cydia and click save shsh. If it is saved, it should download ur shsh

    OK, thanks for all your help guys...

    I did as you suggested and clicked the box, but it only can save 4.3.5

    Perhaps I'll email the person I got the ipad from and see if he has the blobs saved (guess he must as he just did a restore on it to 4.3.3)?

    He could have done it while apple was signing 4.3.3 but he didn't save it for you,

    I'm hoping he still has a copy on his computer at home that he used to restore the ipad with (and presumably used Tinyumbrella to save the SHSH).

    One can always hope....

    fingers crossed

    If it is iPad 1, dont worry as there is allready a bootrom exploit but not iPad 2 tho, I have iPad 2 gsm model so no more restore once iOS 5 drops. eventhough I have 4.3.3 blob.

    urghhhh

    Well just heard back from the guy I bought it from and he didn't save the 4.3.3 blobs. Oh well, not a big deal but it would have been nice to have in case I wanted to restore.

    I'm not sure how he restored it to 4.3.3 before he sold it to me.... Maybe he just manually deleted all the apps, and personal info?
