10-30-2012, 04:02 PM #1Upgrade JB iPad 2 - 5.0.1 to 5.1.1
I have a JB ipad 5.0.1 with shsh blobs 4.3.3, 4.3.5, 5.0.1,5.1, 5.1.1
What would be the proper procedure to upgrade to 5.1.1 from this point?
From what I've read so far, I believe it's possible to go to 5.1.1 using redsn0w even though 6 is currently available?
Or do I have to upgrade to 6 then downgrade to 5.1.1?
I'm hoping that if the shsh blobs are saved for my idevice that I have free reign to go to/from whatever ios version I have blobs for.

While trying to enter DFU mode, redsn0w returned: "Sorry, that isn't supported yet on the iPad 2."
I clicked the Back button and redsn0w indicated that the Ipad 2 is already in DFU Mode. I closed redsn0w and attempted to do a restore with the custom ipsw and got error 11.

Are you running the latest version of redsn0w? I just upgraded an iPad 2 from 4.3.3 to 5.1.1 using their 4.3.5/5.1.1 ipsw and blobs.

I tried the latest redsn0w 0.9.15b1 as well as the suggested 0.9.14b2. Same error message in redsn0w when setting the ipad to dfu mode. It's odd that the message appears for just putting the ipad into dfu.
While 0.9.14b2 allowed me to stitch the ipsw, 0.9.15b2 would not. Got error message about 'this feature is not supported yet on the ipad 2" from 0.9.15b2. Again, odd why a newer version wouldn't work while an older one would.
I'm going to try everything again on my Mac and see if that works instead.

I tried to stitch iPad2,4_5.1.1_9B206_Restore and also iPad2,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore and redsn0w said that stitching for this IPSW isn't currently available
I'm also on 4.3.3, I have all the necessary blobs (6.0.1, 5.1.1, 5.1, 5.0.1, 4.3.5, 4.3.3), redsn0w 0.9.15b3, and apparently it does not support any ipad 2 firmware
