Hey guys, definitely should have checked online first, but didn't.
Have an ipad 2 running 4.3.3 jailbroken since the day it was announced.
I wanted to updated to 5.0.1 before it stopped being signed, but had to backup and didn't have the time.
So I decided to try and update two days ago using TinyUmbrella and the 5.0.1 ipsw and my saved blobs. Have literally tried every combination of computer, 5 different in the house, and all different TinyUmbrella settings. I figured it would just work as it did for my iphone.
Well that's not the case, keep throwing errors and decided to check here where a couple have mentioned that the blobs aren't useable!
Just want any feedback confirming that I will have to update to 5.1 because fix recovery doesn't work nor does pwned DFU (of course).

Won't work from what I've learned I'm waiting on the jailbreak for 5.1.0 I'll post when it's out

You're sure your 5.0.1 blobs are saved?

Even you have blobs saved you can not restore to 5.0.1. You can only restore to current firmware 5.1. At this moment redsn0w and iFaith does not support A5 iPad 2 and 4S.

^ Ah, good point. Totally forgot iPad 2 also uses the A5.

I know it's a shot in the dark, but does anyone know if redsn0w or iFaith will be adding A5 support soon?

No one knows the future
