    Default Got iPad 2 iOS 5, downgrade to 4.3.3 to jailbreak?
    I got iPad 2 updated to iOS 5, without jailbreak, and I heard that the jailbreak for iOS 5 on iPad 2 will be ready soon.

    What you guys think, I should wait for it, or I should downgrade to iOS 4.3.3 to do the jailbreak? Comparing the new features of iOS 5 and the features you can get with jailbreak, what you guys think?

    Thanks for the help

    I downgrade mine to 4.3.3 from 5.0 after 1 hour using. I rather use 4.3.3 with jailbreak. I use pwntunes, ifile, safari upload enabler and many more cydia apps.

    You are out of luck. Wifi+3G iPad2 can not be downgraded, even with SHSH blobs. You are stuck at 5.0.1, and all you can do is hope that a jailbreak comes out for 5.0.1 or above.

    I updated my ipad2 to 5.0.0 knowing the stakes (that it could not be downgraded to 4.3.3). I always tell people to the carefully before they upgrade. I gambled that a jailbreak would be found for 5.0.0 and so far it seems there will be one eventually.

    A lot of people that did not upgrade to 5.0 are now stuck at 4.3.3 if they want to jailbreak.

    Damned if you do, damned if ou don't.....
