    Thumbs down Help needed - ipad2 - downgrade back to 5.0.1 from 5.1 :(
    Hello Everyone..

    Thought i would post on here even though im pretty sure i know the answer

    My Ipad2 updated to 5.1 from 5.0.1(jailbroke) but now i cant restore back, i NEVER saved my SHSH blobs on the ipad

    i have tried downloading the 5.0.1 software, editing my host files to block connection to apple and on every restore try i get the 1601 error.

    Im guessing im stuck with 5.1 now and it seems that 5.1 jailbreak wont be ready any time soon.

    Am i stuck with 5.1?

    Yes, Sadly you are. Apple has stopped signing 5.0.1 so until a new jailbreak comes out you won't be able to jailbreak. There is currently no way to downgrade since they stopped signing 5.0.1

    Hopefully so. Apple is supposedly coming out with a new update in a few weeks to patch the Safari URL spoofing exploit. So remember when that comes out to not update unless a jailbreak is out!

    Excellent News Fingers still crossed in mean time! My iphone keeps reminding me i need to update to 5.1 but i have left that well alone, just my ipad2 seems so empty now i have lost everything.

    and i bet this exploit involves the use of SHSH blobs from which i never saved why did i ever update the poxy thing!!!! grrr

    Very good point there. The short amount of time when I was updating my iPod to 5.0.1, I looked at it as it was restoring (So I could jailbreak it) It seemed so empty without all my tweaks on it. Being jailbroken is being spoiled.

    Forever Alone, Without a jailbreak. Makes you realize Apple is genius, But how many features they've forgotten to put on iDevices.

    Have you tried using TinyUmbrella to fetch any available blobs off of Saurik's server?

    I had to update my JB iPad 2 that was on 5.0.1 because it stopped wanting to boot. I never saved my blobs With any program but luckily the Cydia server Had a copy of my blobs I guess it does this automatically cause I don't remember ever being asked to back them up.

    Worth a shot to open TinyUmbrella, select your iPad device, and hit that Save SHSH button. It will check the Cydia server for any blobs it might have for you and download them to your computer

    It's an exploit in the downgrading/upgrading system. It should work since Limera1n has it on their site.
