Thread: 2 iPad 2s password locked. HELP
11-06-2013, 09:45 AM #12 iPad 2s password locked. HELP
I had two old iPad 2s that my kids cracked the screens on. They were both jailbroken and on iOS 5.0.1. They have tons of the kids games, pictures, etc on them. The problem is that after I got them back from the repair shop (fixing the glass), they both have passwords on them (that my wife must have put on). Of course, it must have been something she would easily remember at the time (a year ago) but has NO CLUE what they are now (GRRRRRRRRR).
I have tried using iFunBox to delete out the Key and the springbord.plist, etc. But on some computers I plug them into, it tells me "This ipad is disabled" (obviously due to too many password attempts).
I've been looking at each of my computers to find a backup of the ipads, but I can't seem to find one.
One of them, I can bypass the password on (I don't know which one of my numerous attempts made that possible, but after it asks for password, I just hit the power button, then the slide to unlock comes up and lets me in...but if I try to plug it into iTunes, it says it's disabled as well).
My question is this: Is there any way for me to wipe these and get them back to working order AND JAILBROKEN. If I put it into DFU and RESTORE, it's going to update them to 6.1.3 (or 4).
Does anyone have any ideas?!?

Hi, you can use Redsnow or iFaith to pull your SHSH blobs off Cydia or your iPad for iOS5.0.1
Then follow this guide to re-restore iOS5.0.1
