Thread: Downgrade question!?
10-07-2011, 01:22 PM #1
Was lucky enough to win a 32Gb WiFi + 3G iPad 2 at work today
It seems it was shipped with iOS 4.3.5
Looking at other sites it seems that i need the restore files before i can attempt downgrading, can that be done if the device was shipped with 4.3.5?
Im guessing this means i cant jailbreak yet then....
It should be noted that this guide does not apply to 3G iPad 2 users running iOS 4.3.5. This is because downgrading the baseband on 3G iPad 2 is not possible yet. If you do have a 3G iPad 2 and have upgraded to iOS 4.3.5, then you are out of luck for now.

Welcome to the club! A few weeks ago, I won. 64GB iPad 2 WiFi+3G and I'm in the same boat with 4.3.5.
Apparently you can only upgrade if you have the SHSH blobs for 4.3.3, the only version that you can jailbreak on the iPad 2 3G. You'll find that out by downloading and running TinyUmbrella.
When I first got it it had 4.3 on it. I've tried to exchange it through Apple twice for otherwise legitimate reasons and each time I wound up with 4.3.5. I've since given up and am waiting for 5.0 in the hopes I can jailbreak through that release.
I'll keep my fingers crossed for you; I've not had any luck, but it would be nice to see someone get lucky.

I don't know, I was as surprised as you. Even then, I didn't really believe it until I got the iPad 2 and wireless keyboard, LOL!
