    Default iPad 2 3G & Jailbreaking
    I have just bought an iPad 2 3G from someone on ebay, collected it and i'm happy with it.

    It came on 4.3.3 and jailbroken already but with all his settings etc.

    I want to update/restore it to factory settings and re-jailbreak it as it has some probelms with apps etc and cydia.

    Cydia says SHSH: IOS 4.3.5

    Can i update to 4.3.5 and jailbreak? If so how?
    If not then can i restore to 4.3.3 and jailbreak? If so how?

    Have been reading up everywhere but i am seeing different stories and very confused. So came to the ask the best!

    If Cydia only has SHSH blobs for 4.3.5, you're out of luck. The only firmware version jailbroken on iPad 2 is 4.3.3. The only way to restore 4.3.3 and rejailbreak is with 4.3.3 SHSH blobs.

    can i not save my SHSH blobs for 4.3.3 since it is jailbroken on 4.3.3 and has cydia installed?

    I have just used tinyumbrella to save my shsh blobs in 4.3.3 would this work?

    No, Apple is no longer signing 4.3.3, so there is no way to obtain the SHSH blobs for 4.3.3

    Umbrella does not create the blobs, it simply asks Apple servers (or Cydia's) for the blobs.

    Since your Cydia is reporting it has blobs for 4.3.5 only, you are out of luck. Coincidentally, I bought a new iPad 2 a couple of months back, and it came with 4.3.3, and apple was only signing 4.3.5, so I was in the same boat.

    Cheers

    IFaith doesn't work with the iPad 2 so you're out of luck, even if you had blobs for 4.3.3 you couldn't do anything since you have a 3G iPad. The baseband messes everything up when trying to restore to an older firmware on a 3G iPad 2. Sorry buddy, iOS 5 untether shouldn't be to much longer for a release.
