    Default If I upgrade my iPad to current iOS can I downgrade later?
    I really don't have a need to have my iPad be jailbroken to be honest and some games want a newer version of the iOS so I was considering upgrading to current iOS. If I want to go back what do I need to do if I'm able to do this. Any steps I need to do before I upgrade? Thanks for the help.

    Ok I saved the blobs. Do I need to stitch them too? I downloaded 6.0.1 and tried to use the new redsn0w to do it but it said stitching is not available for that IPSW.

    Thought it was per iPhone Dev Blog

    Hmmm so have you read this? iPhone Dev Blog makes it sound like I can restore back to any software even if I'm currently on new iOS

    SHSH accoding to what shows on Cydia or stored locally? I will have to check when I get home as I do not have my iPad with me. I will be home in about one hour and I will report back.

    If not the SHSH on Cydia app then do I need to look in TinyUmbrella for this?

    Ok, so you can re-restore from 5.0.1 to 5.0.1, but if you go to 6.0.1 you won't be able to get back.
