    Default Ipad 1 upgrade from 4.2.1 to IOS 5
    So I put off upgrading my Ipad 1 until now. I'm really wanting to put photostream on it, but I hear that Apple is no longer signing 5.0.1. I've seen many comments about it's impossible to upgrade the ipad 2 now, am I in the same situation with the Ipad 1?

    Is there anyway to upgrade from the 4.2.1 it is at now to anything in iOS 5?

    You can only update to 5.0.1 if you have the SHSH blobs saved.

    Edit: 2k1 is fast
    If my post was good, click the button in my post

    New to jailbreaking? Have a look at my Redsn0w Guide

    So iOS 5.0.1 is out of the question? Not sure if my SHSH blobs are saved. I rarely use the iPad.

    Do you have a link to a tutorial on how to upgrade on the Ipad 1? I usually use the tutorials on iClarified, but I think those may be outdated.

    Edit: Oh and I want to make sure it's a jailbroken upgrade. Probably understood, but I wanted to make sure.

    I am considering buying an iPad 1G but it is already on V5 and I am sure he didi not save blobs. Can I still JB it, even if it is a tethered one I don't really care

    5.0.1 is the latest firmware that has an untethered jailbreak. Unless the iPad in question has blobs saved for 5.0.1, you will not be able to restore to that firmware. At this time 5.1 is the only firmware Apple is signing for iPad
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    So would I use redsn0w to JB on V5.1, tethered?

    How can I check to see if my ipad has saved blobs? I am wanting to avoid a tethered JB, but it seems I have no choice as an untethered 5.0 + hasn't come around yet...
